St George’s drub Innswood

first_imgA Winchester Park fortress it seems, as 22-time champions St George’s reigned supreme at home and made light work of Innswood High in their ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup return match yesterday.St George’s whipped their rivals 5-0 to move to the top of Group C with a superior goal difference.”We wanted this,” St George’s coach Neville Bell said. Innswood had beaten St George’s 2-1 at home when the teams met earlier this season.The heroes for the North Street-based school were Alex Marshall, who slammed in a hat-trick, while captain Shevon Stewart overcame a first-half penalty miss to score twice.Marshall’s goals came in the second, 67th and 90th minutes. He is now Manning Cup’s leading marksman with 10 goals, while Stewart has four.Marshall, however, does not believe there is an over-reliance on him to score.”Not really, all I do is just go out there and make use of the opportunities. I don’t know how many I will get (goals this season); it’s up to God,” said the diminutive player.Goalkeeper Tajay Griffiths of Innswood had a good game. He pulled off a penalty save and what could be save of the season to deny Stephon Gilzene from close range.”St George’s really came out and played for this game … and pushed us,” Innswood’s assistant coach, Kemar Foster, said.Yesterday’s resultsGROUP BHydel 2 Papine 0Dunoon 1 Greater Portmore 1Cumberland 0 Haile Selassie 2GROUP CEltham 2 Kingston Technical 0St George’s 5 Innswood 0Denham Town 0 Ardenne 2GROUP FJonathan Grant 3 Ascott 1Spanish Town 1 Norman Manley 1Excelsior 2 Vauxhall 1last_img read more
