Jamaica College (JC) and Cornwall College will clash in the final of the 2018 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) rebranded Champions Cup all-island knockout football competition. 

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.

St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) have already claimed revenge against Kingston College, who booted them from a previous ISSA Champions Cup. Now, they face Jamaica College, who snatched all-island glory from them in a previous Olivier Shield. Is more vengeance on the cards? 

Cornwall College and St George's College do not have much of a history against each other. They will be writing the first few chapters of that history when they meet in the semi-final of the ISSA Champions Cup later today.

In the first stand-alone T20 World Cup for women, there were questions about what the crowd would be like. 

Hydel High won their first major football title on Wednesday by defeating Excelsior High 2-0 in the final of the restructured Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) Walker Cup knockout competition at the Stadium East field.
