The ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup is set to resume this afternoon with another Montego Bay cross-town derby with defending champions Cornwall College (CC) playing hosts to the Theodore 'Tappa' Whitmore-coached St James High in Zone A action at 3:30 p.m.

CC coach Dr Dean Weatherly described St James High as a well-coached team with a deep bench but says his boys will be going in the match determined to pick up all three points and maintain their 100 per cent win record in daCosta Cup.

Former champions St James have also made an impressive start to this year's competition under the guidance of Reggae Boyz head coach Whitmore, winning both games played so far.

 

CLEAN SHEET

 

Back-to-back wins aside, perhaps the most impressive thing about St James' start so far is the fact that they are yet to concede a goal, but today's test will be their biggest so far, given Cornwall's penchant for attacking football.

Cornwall certainly pack a ton of firepower and will be looking to Aiden Jokomba, the physical Garnett Hudson ,and their leading goalscorer Shavon McDonald to pierce the St James backline.

Both teams are in great form and are level on six points at the top, only separated by goal difference, which favours St James High. They have scored one more goal than the defending champions, who have scored seven goals and conceded one.
