Former champions gunning to dethrone Cornwall College

Most of the former champions have made impressive starts to this another year of the ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup schoolboy competition.

It may be early days, but former champions Clarendon College, St James High, Rusea's High, Dinthill and others have made it clear that they want to dethrone Cornwall College.

Cornwall College have not had a misfire either so far, as they have won both of their opening matches, letting them know they are still champions.

St James High will get the opportunity to stamp their class when they take on the defending champions this afternoon. They have made an imposing start to their campaign under the guidance of Reggae Boyz head coach, Theodore 'Tappa' Whitmore, winning two of two in their first games without conceding a goal. They have scored one more goal than the defending champions, who have scored seven goals in two and have conceded a goal to date.

Out in Clarendon, there seems to be two 'dons', as last year's quarter finalist and re-emerging stars, Dinthill Technical, are up on the shoulders of Clarendon College, who have only scored more goals than Dinthill, as both are leading their zones on six points.

Rusea's High, the 2011 champions, are inspiring under the guidance of newly appointed coach, Vassal Reynolds, who last year at Wolmer's Boys won the FLOW Super Cup and also led them to the Manning Cup final.

Rusea's have won two of two and will be looking to make it three this afternoon when they face a confident Green Island team.
