Led by a superb Andrew Daley brace, Wolmer's Boys cruised to the top of Group K in the ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup second round yesterday with an easy 3-0 win over St Catherine High at the Spanish Town Prison Oval.

The game was the second match of a double-header. In the day's opener, St George's College came from behind to clip Haile Selassie 2-1.

Coach Vassell Reynolds of Wolmer's wants more goals from his team.

"Overall, I am pretty satisfied, but there is some work to be done. I still think that even though we are scoring at an average of two goals per game, I still feel that we need to be a little bit more clinical," he said.

"We are creating the goalscoring opportunities and need to put more away as it's going to be important going forward," he added. Alphanso Gooden was also on target for Wolmer's yesterday.

 

FIRST-HALF STRIKE

 

Meanwhile, Haile Selassie's Akeem Grandison put them in the lead with a first-half strike in the opening game, but Alex Marshall levelled for St George's before Akiki Jackson scored the winner.

St George's assistant coach, Marcel Gayle said Haile Selassie pushed them all the way.

"In the first half, Selassie started better than us. They held their own and we came back in the second half and won the game," he told The Gleaner.

"Mentally we were up for the game. Physically, we dug deep and found the performance to carry us over the line," Gayle added.
