St. George’s College turned a masterful display in trouncing Jamaica College 4-0 on Saturday (Nov. 14) to lift the prestigious Flow Super Cup at the National Stadium in Kingston.
It was a performance of the highest order as St George’s showed who the best schoolboy team is in dethroning JC in front of approximately 30,000 fans — arguably the largest for a schoolboy football game.
The irrepressible Alex Marshall led the onslaught with two goals in the 14th and 58th minutes for his 23rd goal of the season and his sixth in the competition which won him the Golden Boot award.
A fifth-minute penalty by Gregory Messam Jnr and a lovely free kick in the 53rd minute by Ronaldo Watson sealed a wonderful victory for a St George’s College team that looked to be in a class of their own.
For their masterful display, the ‘Light Blues’ from North Street pocketed a whopping $1m and an impressive trophy.
It was the first Super Cup victory for Neville Bell, one of the most successful coaches in schoolboy football, having won five Manning Cup titles. Apparently overjoyed with emotions, Bell was not seen after the final whistle as his team celebrated in style.
JC, the dethroned champions, walked away with $375,000 that they accumulated for their three wins and second place.
It was another miserable night for JC’s Head Coach Miguel Coley inside the National Stadium after guiding Jamaica’s senior team to a 0-2 defeat to Panama in their World Cup qualifier on Friday night (Nov. 13).
Meanwhile, Wolmer’s Boys’ grabbed third spot after defeating St Jago High 2-1 to pocket $175,000.
Once again the sword-wielding Knights, Saint George’s, prevailed as they slaughtered the Jamaica College Griffins. Certainly that battle will continue.
