WESTERN BUREAU: A total of 365 goals were scored in week one of the 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/FLOW daCosta Cup football competition, with the fancied schools already beginning to show their clout, while those of lesser quality continue staking a claim in their bid to wear the ‘upsetters’ tag for this year. Lennon High have scored 13 goals so far, the most by any school, with marquee teams such as defending champions St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) 12 goals and Vere Technical 11 goals occupying the next two places. Teammates Romeo Wright and Jovoney Brown of STETHS have each scored four goals (hat-tricks included) to lead the scorers’ table. Also with four goals are two Vere Tech players, David Duckworth and Ronaldo Thomas. Michael Heaven of Cornwall College has three. STETHS, along with last year’s defeated finalists Dinthill Technical and several other teams including a host of former winners including the Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis-coached Clarendon College, Rusea’s, the always dangerous Glenmuir, Vere Technical, Godfrey Stewart and Cornwall College all seemed primed for making a deep run into the next stage of the competition. BELOW THE RADAR Then there are those flying just below the radar in the likes of Lennon, Manchester, Spalding, Petersfield, Paul Bogle, Frome Technical, Kemps Hill and Garvey Maceo, anyone of which could become real threats this year. Each has looked good so far, with the competition’s second week about to get underway this afternoon with a full slate of matches scheduled. Here is how they actually stand in each zone after week one. Zone A: Cornwall College (six points) lead on goal difference over second place St James High (6). Green Pond (4) and Irwin (1) are next, while Maldon and Anchovy remain without a point at this stage. Zone B: Frome (3) lead on goal difference over Rusea’s (3), Green Island and Knockalva High are yet to log points. Zone C: Herbert Morrison (5), after three matches, lead Spot Valley (4), Cedric Titus (4), Muschett (4), William Knibb (2) and Holland (1). Zone D: Petersfield (6) lead on goal difference over Godfrey Stewart (6), Little London (5), Grange Hill (4), Manning’s (4) and Maud McLeod yet to secure a point. Zone E: STETHS (6) lead on goal difference over Lacovia (6), Munro (1), Newell (1), Maggotty and Black River yet to score a point. Zone F: Manchester (6) lead on goal difference over BB Coke (6), Mile Gully (6), Belair, DeCarteret and Cross Keys without any points at this stage. Zone G: Spalding (9) lead over Holmwood (6), Christiana (3), Bellefield (3), Alston (3) and May Day High (3). Zone H: Lennon (6) lead on goal difference ahead of Clarendon College (6), Edwin Allen (3), Thompson Town (3), Knox and Claud McKay (0) point. Zone I: Marcus Garvey (6), Steer Town (4), A. Gallimore (3), Browns Town (3), York Castle (1) and Ocho Rios (0) point. Zone J: Iona High (6), Horace Clarke (5), Tacky High (5), St. Mary High (4), Brimmervale (2) and St. Mary Tech (1). Zone K: Dinthill (6) lead ahead of Ewarton (6), McGrath (3), Charlemont (1), Guys Hill (1) and Bog Walk (0) point. Zone L: Port Antonio (6), lead on goal difference over Fair Prospect (6), Oracabessa (3), Titchfield and Happy Grove (0) points. Zone M: Glenmuir (6) lead on goal difference over Garvey Maceo (6), Denbigh (6), Foga Road, Porus and Winston Jones are yet to log a point. Zone N: Vere Tech (6) lead on goal difference over Kemps Hill (6), Central High (3), Old Harbour (3), Bustamante (1) and Tacius Golding (1). Zone O: Paul Bogle (9), Seaforth (7), Robert Lightbourne (6), Morant Bay (2), St. Thomas Tech (1) and Yallahs (0) point.
Jonathan Grant High continued their impressive run when they tagged Ardenne High 3-1 in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW Manning Cup Group D football match at Barbican Complex yesterday. The winners won courtesy of goals by Isaac Scott in the 15th minute, Tyrone Small (37th) and Jermaine Shorter (56th). Ardenne pulled a goal back through substitute Rushawn Smith in the 89th minute. Ardenne ended the game with 10 players after John-Christoff Pringle was issued a red card for violent conduct in the 86th minute. Jonathan Grant was the better team and Shorter was instrumental in his team’s victory that pushed them onto 13 points, while Ardenne remain on seven points. “The performance today was very good. We came out as a team and fought hard for the win,” Shorter told The Gleaner. “It was an important win for us as the goings is tight in the group. Our aim is to finish on top in the group and move onto the other stage. We are also eyeing the Super Cup spot,” the 18-year-old fifth-form student said. Oneil Thomas, Jonathan Grant’s head coach, praised his team for their performance. “It was more of a spirited performance than the last couple games. The mental part of the game was better. We have two home games coming up, so we will be working on getting maximum points,” Thomas said. Ardenne’s head coach, Harold Thomas, says his team will continue fighting in the remaining four games. “We will continue to fight. The loss is a serious setback to our ambition of advancing from the group. We gave up three soft goals,” Harold Thomas said.

BASSETERRE, Guadeloupe (CMC): President of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC), Brian Lewis, has been elected interim president of the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC). Lewis was elected unanimously at the organisation’s annual general assembly in Guadeloupe on Sunday, following the resignation of former president, Steve Stoute of Barbados, after 17 years at the helm. Stoute led the organisation since its opening years as the Caribbean Caucus of National Olympic Committees in 1999 to the official establishment of CANOC in 2003. Lewis will serve until the CANOC extraordinary general meeting scheduled for Barranquilla, Colombia, in February 2017. Astra Singh of the Suriname Olympic Committee was elected to the CANOC executive to fill the vacancy left by Stoute. Singh is the first woman to serve on the CANOC executive. Watford face probe LONDON (AP): English football authorities are investigating newspaper allegations that Watford supplied falsified financial information to allow Italian businessman Gino Pozzo to become the club’s owner. The Daily Telegraph reported yesterday it has obtained a forged bank letter submitted by Watford to provide proof that Pozzo had enough funds to take over the club before the 2014-15 season. Watford won promotion to the Premier League that season. The English Football League, which runs the three divisions below the Premier League, says “We immediately commenced a disciplinary investigation into serious allegations made against Watford” after receiving information by the Daily Telegraph. The EFL has asked Watford to “provide a full and detailed response to the allegations.” New interim president elected to CANOC
It was overall a disappointing display from Clarendon, with little urgency shown in the final third. They had three attempts on target in the first half, with Charlton coming agonisingly close in the 15th minute. Then in the 31st minute, the Clarendon aggregation had a shout for penalty ignored by referee Danion Parchment, as the ball cannoned off a Cornwall player inside the area. Clarendon College’s team manager, Richard Palmer, attributed the loss partly to referee’s decisions, which, he said, never went his team’s way. “We are just disappointed that the penalty was not given. It was plain that the player handled the ball inside the area, but we are happy to have come this far but regret that the journey had to end like this,” Palmer said. Cornwall’s opponents in the final will be known this afternoon when defending champions St Elizabeth Technical tackle Lennon High at the Manchester High School ground at 2:30 p.m. POOR DISPLAY WESTERN BUREAU: Cornwall College reached their first daCosta Cup final in 15 years when they clipped Clarendon College 2-1 in the ISSA-FLOW semi-final yesterday at St Elizabeth Technical Giovanni Reid and Aiden Jkombo were on target for Cornwall, who had to withstand a late charge from Clarendon, during which time Creggton Charlton managed to score. Playing without the influence of Peter-Lee Vassell, who later entered the fray as a second-half substitute, and with Jourdaine Fletcher not yet warmed to the occasion, it was left to Reid to provide Cornwall’s first threat. He was first to meet a Fletcher corner-kick, outjumping the Clarendon defenders around him to flash a powerful header into the net in the sixth minute. But when Charlton, who looked dangerous, particularly in the first half, was allowed to sneak a cross that was drilled into the area to equalise in the 85th minute, many thought the game would again go to the wire. But then in the 87th minute, the supremely talented Vassell took charge. He darted into the area, drawing the attention of two Clarendon College defenders, and when he was challenged, the ball ran loose to Jkomba, who beat Benjamin Williams in the Clarendon goal. It was a fine victory for Cornwall as they marked a wonderful campaign without a defeat in the daCosta Cup. They have only lost twice all season, once to Lennon in the Ben Francis Cup and to Wolmer’s Boys in the FLOW Super Cup final. “The match went according to plan except for the Clarendon College late goal, but we showed determination to score late on ourselves to clinch a good win,” Dr Dean Weatherly, Cornwall College head coach, said.
“They have to demonstrate their ability to plan and when they submit that plan, they will also have to execute one training session of that plan,” Daley-Morris added. Meanwhile, their was some confusion surrounding the national Under-21 team’s participation in the Berger Elite League after their fourth placed finish in the competition. Daley-Morris stated that it was well-known among the ranks that they took part for developmental purposes while noting that she was pleased with their performance. “The players, the coaches, and everybody knew they would not advance (to the semi-finals). What we should have done is separate the points they earned from the media report, and we didn’t do that, so that would have created some miscommunication. But that was the policy from the beginning and everybody knew,” she added. “But it’s good (they did so well) because we are going to Botswana in July … and it was good to see they can hold their own in a senior competition,” Daley-Morris added. The position has been vacant for little over a month. ABILITY TO PLAN Netball Jamaica president, Dr Paula Daley-Morris, says she has no preference as it relates to a male or female coach noting that the best candidate will be selected for the senior Sunshine Girls head coaching job. Speaking on the Girls’ Sports Club programme on Hitz92 FM, the netball boss said the door is open to all qualified applicants and informed that the post will be advertised in the media by this weekend. “I’m looking for the candidate that demonstrates the best ability to do the job. It doesn’t matter (if the person is male or female). Based on the criteria, the best candidate will be employed,” said Daley-Morris. “Persons who coach at this level have to have a Jamaica award, but not many have that, so we usually take persons with a level one award and the interview process will distinguish which person qualifies for the job,” she explained. Applicants are required to submit their resumes with a dossier of activity in terms of netball coaching qualification and other training acquired. They will also be asked to present a programme which they think is suitable to take the Sunshine Girls to the level the association envisions.
Girls Class Four 100m champion Brianna Lyston (St Jago) secured the sprint double with a record run in the 200m final, stopping the clock at 23.72 to erase the her own 24.00 mark set a couple days ago. Second place went to Oneika McAnnuff from Hydel, who clocked 24.64 with Mount Alvernia’s Shenequa Vassell, 24.74 taking third place.
