WESTERN BUREAU:

Clarendon College edged closer to gaining a berth in the inter-zone round of the 2015 ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup as Group H winners, following a 1-1 draw at Lennon High yesterday.

After seven matches, the defending champions are on 15 points and yet to lose a game. They are two points in front of a resurgent Edwin Allen High, while the faltering Lennon have 11 points from six matches.

The Paul Davis-coached Clarendon College have racked up 30 goals and only four against to dominate the group, and with the return match against second-from-bottom Thompson Town to come on October 10, they are in pole position to be amongst the teams to participate in the cash-rich FLOW Super Cup, which will have its launch today in Montego Bay.

Over in Group D, former winners Godfrey Stewart High defeated The Manning's School 1-0 in the Savanna-la-Mar derby to jump into the lead on 11 points. Previous leaders Petersfield (10 pts) were idle and can retake the lead when they clash with Little London tomorrow.

Manning's remain third in the group with nine points and will have a tough time amassing enough points to keep either Godfrey Stewart or Petersfield from advancing.

Knox College's 1-0 win over Bellefield left Group G in a bind, as apart from leaders Holmwood, who tagged Alston 3-1 for their 14th point of the campaign, four of the remaining teams are locked on 11 points.

Knox, Spalding, Alston, and Christiana are neck and neck in the race to advance - along with favourites Holmwood - from the group.
