Seven more schools into DCup quarters
Two more schools have started making plans to play at least three more games in the ISSA DaCosta Cup after William Knibb Memorial and 12-time winners Cornwall College secured their spots in the quarter-finals on Friday after contrasting wins over Irwin High and Maldon High respectively in Zone A.
Still smarting from their loss to Holland High, William Knibb battled to a 3-2 win while Cornwall College cruised to an easy 3-0 win over Maldon High at Irwin High.
William Knibb leads Zone A with 18 points and Cornwall College finished second with 16 points as the western pair joins Frome Technical and Manning's School from Zone B, Garvey Maceo High, and Vere Technical from Zone F and Dinthill Technical from Zone H as the teams that have booked their spots.
William Knibb appeared well on their way to winning the game with goals from Mark Lewis and Jayar Skyers before Irwin High came back late in the second half with goals from Tavin Leslie and Detroy Reid to tie up the scores at 2-2.
Skyers however completed his brace with a goal in time added to spare William Knibb some blushes.
Brandon Timberlake scored his first daCosta Cup brace and he teamed with Braxton Richards who also scored from the penalty spot as the Dr. Dean Weatherly-coached team extended their run of games without conceding a goal to five games.
