STETHS ‘ready’ for prized d’Cup

first_img UNBEATEN RECORD Cornwall is the only team in the competition with a 100 per cent win record and will start favourites against Glenmuir. Another double-header is on offer at Jarrett Park, Montego Bay, where Spot Valley High and Little London will lock horns in the battle of the first-time quarter-finalists at 1 p.m., while at 3 p.m., Aaron Lawrence takes his slick-looking Rusea’s High team into battle against Paul Bogle High. The Wembley sports ground will also host a double-header when at 1 p.m., Lennon High meet the highly fancied Dinthill Technical, after which Vere Technical battle Petersfield in a 3 p.m. clash. Meanwhile, over at Drax Hall, another first-time quarter-finalist, Ocho Rios High, will hope to extinguish the hopes of Manchester High in a 3 p.m. fixture. Although not at their best in the recent exit from the FLOW Super Cup knockout game against Bridgeport High, Dinthill’s coach, Kevin Williams, will have his players sharp and focused for this one. “It was better we lost that (FLOW Super Cup) game than in this competition, which we regard as still the best in the country. We want to once again reach the final, so this will be a big game for us,” said Williams. “I am sure Lennon will be at their best, so we too have to up our game. A place in the semi-finals is at stake and we want it badly,” Williams noted.

Of the four titles on offer, STETHS’ coach, Omar Wedderburn, makes no bones about the importance of this competition to his school. “We are ready for this. The daCosta Cup is what we prize the most and the aim is, as usual, to make it again to the final. But first, we have to take care of business against Fair Prospect,” Wedderburn said. The other quarter-final pairings pit Clarendon College against Steer Town in the first game of a double-header at Juici Beef Complex, Clarendon. That game is set for a 1 p.m. kick-off. It is to be followed by the massive clash between two former winners, Cornwall College and Glenmuir High.last_img read more
