Hamilton: JC's the team to beat in Super Cup


November 11, 2017

The hunt for schoolboy football trophies continues this afternoon at the Montego Bay Sports Complex with two quarter-finals in the ISSA/FLOW Super Cup competition.

The opening match of the double-header will see newly crowned ISSA/FLOW Walker Cup champions Jamaica College (JC) taking on Ben Francis Cup beaten finalist Dinthill Technical at 5:00 p.m.

JC will come into this match favourites after dismissing Kingston College 2-1 on Tuesday to claim their first silverware of the season. They, however, are not underestimating their opponents, Ian Forbes, the team manager said. He said that they are just looking to go into the match, play to their best, and, hopefully, come out victorious.


"We are playing a quality team as they were Ben Francis Cup finalists, so I guess it's another test. We expect this to be a tough game, so we are going out there to execute as best as possible and hope to get a positive result," said Forbes.

Dinthill is coming off a 4-1 extra-time defeat to Clarendon College in the Ben Francis finals on Wednesday. Coach Curtis Hamilton, however, said that defeat is behind them now as they are totally focused on JC, which is seen as the team to beat.

"We have put the Ben Francis loss behind us and are just focused on this game. They (JC) are the Walker Cup champions, so we know what to expect, but we are pretty confident. JC is the team to beat," said Hamilton.

In the second match of the double-header, beaten Walker Cup finalist Kingston College (KC) will go up against the Vassell Reynolds-coached Rusea's High at 7:00 p.m.
