Tyreek Magee was the star as Jamaica College drubbed Holy Trinity High 5-0 in the ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup semi-finals at the National Stadium last Saturday.

Magee, fresh off a one-week Manchester City FC Digicel Kick-start sojourn, helped JC to their emphatic win and a fourth straight trip to the final.

The creative player produced a classy display in midfield and orchestrated most of the JC attacks. It was he who completed the rout with the best goal of the five - a superb curler into the Holy Trinity net in the 85th minute.

improved a lot

"The Manchester City kick-start academy experience was great for me, the technical side of my game has improved a lot, and I want to give them a lot of credit," Magee said after the game.

"It's a bit easier playing in the Manning Cup because as you can see, I am a bit more advanced than the other players," he noted, adding: "If JC play their best game on the day they will retain the Manning Cup."

JC's other scorers last Saturday were Oquin Williams, Maleik Howell, Chevany Willis, and Duhaney Williams.

JC will meet ISSA-FLOW Super Cup winners Wolmer's Boys in the final on Saturday, November 26. Wolmer's blanked high-riding Kingston College 3-0 in the second semi-final with goals from Alphanso Gooden, Andrew Daley and Mickel Graham.
