WESTERN BUREAU:St James High defeated Irwin High 4-1 at Jarrett Park yesterday to join Cornwall College on three points in Group A of the 2015 ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup football competition, setting up a tantalising clash this Saturday between the teams.The two are highly fancied to advance from the group that also features Green Pond High.Irwin offered little by way of attacking thrust and fell behind in the 20th minute via a tap-in from Akeem Campbell at the far post for a 1-0 lead.Coached by Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore, St James – champions in 2008 – started brightly and should have doubled the lead two minutes later, but Oshane Powell missed the target with Irwin’s second-string goalkeeper out of position.With Cornwall College setting the standard early in this group, it was up to St James to stamp their class on this Irwin side, and they upped the tempo to double the lead in the 44th minute through Powell’s strike.They went up 3-0 at the 65th minute when substitute Roderick ‘Chicken’ Haughton scrambled the ball over the goal line.St James’ fourth was a beauty. Ronaldo McLeish danced his way past a defender then struck a low shot past the keeper at the near post in the 72nd minute.As in their match against Cornwall on Saturday, Irwin grabbed a consolation goal, when Sachin Wilmot scored from just inside the area.no clean execution”It is good to have started with a win, which puts us in a share of the lead in the group,” Whitmore said.”It wasn’t a clean execution from my players, but it’s our first game, and now we must shift focus to Saturday’s clash with Cornwall College. We will be preparing for that match with a purpose,” Whitmore added.In the lone Group I game yesterday, Daniel Green and Alain Black netted to give Marcus Garvey Technical a 2-0 win over Browns Town – their second victory in a row. They now lead the group on six points, following Saturday’s 1-0 win over Ocho Rios. Marcus Garvey next tackle York Castle on Saturday.
