Jamaica College (JC) coach Andrew Peart is looking for consistency from the unit ahead of a huge run of games, following an impressive show of strength against STETHS in the semi-finals of the ISSA Champions Cup on Friday.

A hat-trick from striker Earon Elliot and another from Javian Thompson led JC to a punishing 4-0 win over St Elizabeth High School (STETHS) at Sabina Park.  The result pushed the team into the final of the Champions Cup, where they will look to become the first team to win the competition twice.  The ‘Dark Blue’ will face Cornwall College (CC) in the final, who earlier defeated George’s 2-0.

Before then, however, JC will have to turn their attention to a semi-final against St Andrew Technical, a repeat of last year’s final four match-up.

Excellent performance but this is just the semi-finals,” Peart said of the result.

 “We have to try and repeat this on a much bigger stage and game by game.  Consistency is the key for us, that is the target and we just have to go again,” he added.

JC will attempt to become the first team to win the trophy twice.

Portmore United temporarily returned to the top of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) table following a 1-0 win over Montego Bay United at Spanish Town Prison Oval on Sunday.

Ricardo Morris scored the crucial goal for the defending champions in the 43rd minute, a result which ended a three-game winless streak.  Elsewhere, Arnett Garden moved into the top three after a dramatic late goal from Lamar Nelson lifted them past promoted Mount Pleasant.  The win was the second in row for Arnett, a team that had got off to an indifferent start. 

Despite going down to 10 men following the dismissal of Kemar Flemmings, UWI also managed to secure three points against another promoted team, Dunbeholden.  With the UWI short a man, the matched seemed headed for a stalemate, that is until Michael Heaven found the back of the net in the 88th minute.

In the day’s other game, Cavalier and Humble Lion played to a 0-0 draw.  Tivoli Gardens will have the opportunity to retake the RSPL lead when they face Waterhouse at Drewsland on Monday in the final match of the round.
