Coach Garfield Carney will have to wait to taste victory over the Jackie Walters-coached Glenmuir High as his Denbigh High School was swamped 5-1 in a Zone M match in the ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup football competition on Wednesday.
Glenmuir, who entered the clash on six points after two matches, made sure their work was completed early, scoring three goals within the first 15 minutes of the game, with a dazzling array of neat midfield passes and sublime finishing from their front men.
The star of the game was Glenmuir's Zane Reid, who scored a brilliant hat-trick to lead the rout. Denbigh's national Under-16 player Roshane Sharpe scored his team's consolation goal in the 20th minute.
But the day belonged to Reid and his Glenmuir teammates, who were relentless in attack, to send his school to a perfect nine points, matching that of Garvey Maceo.
The impressive Spot Valley High strolled past Muschett 2-0 with Tyshone Hill netting a brace. Rushoye Bull was also on target for Spot Valley who lead Zone C on goal difference over Hopewell.
Creston Bernard, the Spot Valley coach, was pleased with his team's performance.
"They played well and played to instructions. All the players are gelling at the right time although there is still room for improvement," said Bernard.
Munro College rebounded from last Saturday's loss to Black River by hammering Lacovia 4-0 in Zone E. STETHS hit 10 past Balaclava, and Black River lost control of the zone with a 2-0 loss to Maggotty.
In Zone F, Bellfield got the better of Cross Keys 2-0, while Mile Gully edged B.B. Coke 2-1.
Spalding defeated DeCarteret College 3-1 in Zone G, Alston and Knox ended in a 2-2 stalemate and Holmwood and Christiana was goalless.
Clarendon College moved to six points, after their 2-0 win over Thompson Town with Zone H leaders Lennon played out 0-0 draw with Edwin Allen.
