first_imgFOOTBALL: ISSA/FLOW daCosta CupWESTERN BUREAU:The 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/FLOW daCosta Cup schoolboy football competition continues today with 17 matches, including a Zone E fixture between Munro College and Maggotty High at the Appleton Sports Complex.Munro (four points), fresh off their 1-0 victory over the previously unbeaten Lacovia High on Saturday, will be hunting a second straight win to move further up the standings, with champions St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) idle.The zone is led by STETHS (nine), following their 1-0 win on Saturday over Maggotty. Lacovia econd in the zone with six points, but they will be overtaken by a Munro team which appears to have found a sense of renewed confidence.Maggotty have been struggling so far, after failing to secure a single point in two matches. They are desperately in need of something to spark their campaign, which blossomed greatly last year.However, they are unable to reproduce the kind of results that would have no doubt kept them relevant and in line for a place in the next round.Meanwhile, Petersfield (six), third in Zone D behind Godfrey Stewart (nine) and Little London High (eight), could go joint first with a win over Grange Hill at Frome sports ground.”We are still in a position to push forward in the zone, which is proving somewhat more competitive than others thought,” said Petersfield High’s coach, Godfrey Drummond.”Third in the zone is not where we want to be so a victory is what we are going after and we hope that we can do that against Grange Hill,” added Drummond.Little London, oddly enough is the only team in that zone yet to lose a match, but they are looking to be the spoilers in that zone this year under coach Jeffery Reece’s tutelage.Today’s matchesMaggotty vs MunroAnchovy vs MaldonKnockalva vs Green IslandPetersfield vs Grange HillNewell vs Black RiverPetersfield vs Grange HillCross Keys vs Mile GullyBelair vs DeCarteretBB Coke vs ManchesterYork Castle vs Marcus GarveyOcho Rios vs Brown’s TownA Gallimore vs Steer TownHorace Clarke vs St Mary HighSt Mary Tech vs BrimmervaleFoga Road vs Winston JonesPorus vs DenbighSeaforth vs St Thomas TechTacky vs Iona High9Home teams named first, all matches start bat 3 p.m.)last_img
