BB Coke High became the second consecutive first time winners to lift the ISSA Ben Francis Knock-out and the 15th school to be crowned champions after beating Garvey Maceo High 4-2 on penalty-kicks after playing out an exciting 2-2 draw in the final at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.

Garvey Maceo who won the title in 2007m rallied form 0-2 down to draw level in the 86 th minute and should have won it with a late penalty but Barrington Blake skied the kick allowing BB Coke back into the game.

Goalkeeper Shavar Foster came up big for BB Coke in the penalty shoot-out making a save as his teammates were perfect from the spot.

Jason Dyer scored in the 33rd minute to give BB Coke the lead with his 20th goal of the season and Christopher Nelson scored from close range in the 47th minute after a mistake by the Garvey Maceo goalkeeper, handling a back pass led to an indirect free kick inside the 18 yards area.

Garvey Maceo never panicked and slowly clawed their way back into the contest with goals from Marvin Williams in the 55th minute and Jermaine Muirhead in the 86th minute took them level late in the game, setting up a dramatic last few minutes of the game.

Garvey Maceo were awarded a penalty in the 89th minute after Gregory Cousins was hacked down inside the 18 yards area but the usually surefooted Blake sent his shot high over the bar.

In the shoot-out Shemore Forde, Raheim Brown, Kymani Case and Shamar Robinson all scored while Muirhead and Tavan Richards were on target for Garvey Maceo.
