Manning’s School is back into the semi-finals of the ISSA daCosta Cup football competition for the first time in nine years, while former two-time champions Dinthill Technical made it four straight trips after they completed their quarter-final rounds on Friday.

Both schools also qualified for the ISSA Champions Cup and will meet in the semi-finals of the daCosta Cup.

Despite being held 1-1 by Munro College at the St Elizabeth Technical Sports Complex, Mannings School topped Group 2 with seven points.

Abeena Wallace scored a powerful header midway the second half to give Manning’s School the lead and the Sav la Mar based school looked to be cruising to a third straight win in the quarter-finals before Sean Kenyon leveled the scores for Munro with a long-range effort that lodged into the top left-hand corner of the goal.

Dinthill Technical, the losing finalists in 2019, topped Group 1 with a maximum of nine points after edging Edwin Allen High 1-0 in their top of the tables clash at Drax Hall.

Thiamba Chin scored in the first half for Dinthill Technical as they maintained their run of not conceding a goal all season to nine games.

Dinthill Technical who won their two daCosta Cup titles in 1979 and 1981 are qualifying for the top four of the daCosta Cup for the fourth straight season.

Also on Friday, Nevaughn Myrie scored two penalties while Omario Walters and Malcolm Lennon scored one each for Vere Tech who outscored Happy Grove 4-3.

Vere Technical who scored nine goals in their three games had been outscored in their previous two games as Tevonne Miler scored twice yesterday and Jevaughn Thompson got the other for Happy Grove to keep the margin close. At Drax Hall, Christiana High edged William Knibb Memorial 3-2 with goals from Omari Brown, Kevaughn Brown, and Dinari Burke. Mark Lewis and Ricardo Lloyd scored William Knibb’s first goals in the second round.
