WESTERN BUREAU:

The big three in Group E of the 2015 ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS), Munro College and the ever-improving Lacovia High, all logged important victories to keep the group wide open with one round of matches remaining to decide who will move into the inter-zone round.

In the meantime, unbeaten Manchester High continued their relentless form in a thoroughly one-sided 20-0 drubbing of Winston Jones High.

STETHS again proved rather difficult to break down when playing at home, as found out by the visiting B.B. Coke High team in a heavy 4-0 defeat.

Victory moved them to 18 points, still second behind Lacovia (19), who edged Maggotty High 1-0. Munro, who won 2-0 at Newell, are third on 16 points.

Hot striker Michael 'Diddy' Kerr hit a brace for STETHS either side of the half-time break, while there was a goal apiece from Shawn Genus and Demar James.

"We needed goals and these three points, and we got them in another positive display of controlled football," declared STETHS' coach, Omar Wedderburn.

"I am satisfied with what we did today and now we are looking to Saturday for another three points, and I hope it will be good enough to top the group," he added.

Saturday will be a tell-all for the teams in Group E, with STETHS facing Newell, Munro meeting Lacovia and B.B. Coke taking on Maggotty.

Meanwhile, St James High are celebrating a minor accomplishment for topping Group A, after their 3-0 win over Green Pond High, which earned them their 14th point, two more than Cornwall College.
