Herbert Morrison striker Richard Thompson was the star of yesterday's rescheduled ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup encounter, scoring a hat-trick to propel his team to a 3-0 win against visitors Muschett High School.

The flair of Thompson proved to be too much for the Muschett defence, who was put to work throughout the match. The workload seemed to take a toll on the legs of the Muschett defenders after the first hour of the game, as Thompson found his way through their disciplined defence in the 64th minute.

Herbert Morrison grew in confidence after the first goal and took full control of the game. Through their possessive play and creative movement, Thompson latched onto a pass, took on the tired defender, then tapped the ball around the goalkeeper to make it 2-0 in the 75th minute.

Having two goals to his name and time left in the game, Thompson was keen on claiming his hat-trick. With time running out, he dribbled his way to a perfectly created penalty, that he converted in the 87th minute to seal the 3-0 victory. He was then substituted to great applause by the spectators.

The win was Herbert Morrison's third of the season, while Muschett are still looking for their first.

 

DINTHILL BEAT BOG WALK

 

Dinthill Technical continued their good form, extending their winning streak to six straight matches yesterday, with a 3-1 win over Bog Walk High in their rescheduled Zone K match at the Bybrook Sports Complex.

Dinthill striker Shamari Davis continue to find the back of the net in this year's competition, as he opened the scoring in the first half. He was supported by national representative and leading goalscorer Kaheem Parris, who netted in the second half. Parris came back after missing Saturday's game due to circumstances beyond his control. Davis sealed the win to make it 3-1 to give Dinthill a seven-point clear lead over Bog Walk who are on eleven points.

In another rescheduled game, this time in Zone H, ISSA/FLOW Ben Francis Cup Champions Lennon High moved to second behind the impressive looking visitors Clarendon College, with a 2-0 victory over Edwin Allen High.
