Jamaica College (JC) won their fifth straight ISSA/Flow Manning Cup title after holding their nerves to beat St Andrew Technical (STATHS) 5-3 on penalties at the National Stadium. 

This after both teams played to a 1-1 score-line after regulation and extra-time, their third 1-1 deadlock in as many games against each other this season.  

Shaniel Thomas scored for JC in the 30th minute. However, David Smith netted the equaliser for STATHS in the 40th minute.

"I am elated, we won a tough game tonight," said JC coach Miguel Coley. "We knew it would be tough as STATHS is organised but I am happy that we were able to finish on top here. Congrats to STATHS, they played very well especially in the first half."
