Jamaica College coach Miguel Coley has revealed no surprise at retaining the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association/Flow Manning Cup title with the fourth title win at the National Stadium on Saturday.

The many-time winners defeated Wolmer's 2-1 with all three goals scored in the first half.

According to Coley, JC knew how to win and Wolmer's did not.

"I have been hearing Wolmer's is the most defensive team, but when you watch the tape and analyse the game properly, there is no way your goalkeeper is saving five to seven shots and you are a very good defensive team," Coley noted, adding that he backed his coaching abilities to win.

Through JC's consistent match winners Tyreke Magee and Donovan Dawkins, Wolmer's were trailing early in the first half. The Heroes Circle team were left stunned for the first time in the season.

"We know that when we are squaring the ball, we can't put the ball on the six-yard box, we needed to pull it back. We did that today and with the second goal, we could have gotten more," a happy Coley continued.

He said watching tapes of Wolmer's prior to the game showed up their defensive frailties.

"When it comes to the Manning Cup, Jamaica College will fight for it. We are hungry for it because we have tasted it before," stressed Coley.
