Former champions Garvey Maceo put in a workmanlike display in dispatching Glenmuir 1-0 in Zone M of the ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup yesterday.
The impressive Ishmael Currie scored the winner from the penalty spot in the 60th minute. With the win Garvey Maceo moved to 16 points and sole leadership of the zone. Glenmuir stay in second place on 13.
Glenmuir had themselves to blame after missing a number of opportunities, none more clearer than the 78th-minute chance that fell to Halkeem Milson, but his fierce shot cannoned off the crossbar and rebounded into the play. The follow-up shot was booted over.
Meanwhile, St James High are still in front in Zone A after a 1-1 draw with many-time champions Cornwall College. St James had beaten Cornwall 1-0 in their opening fixture.
In Zone B, Frome blanked Herbert Morrison Technical 3-0 while Green Island edged Cambridge 2-1. Defending champions Rusea's were idle yesterday as their scheduled opponents, Merlene Ottey, have withdrawn from the competition.
In Zone C, Holland were hammered 3-0 by William Knibb and Muschett rebounded from their loss last time out by tagging Hopewell 4-1.
Grange Hill turned back Godfrey Stewart, the 2005 winners, 1-0 in Zone D action. Leaders Mannings took care of Petersfield 3-2 while in Zone F, Munro were comfortable in a 4-2 win over Balaclava. Rivals St Elizabeth Technical had a 2-1 win over Maggoty thanks to a brace from Jamel Sinclair. Sinclair scored in the 4th and 26th minutes. B.B. Coke held Manchester to a 0-0 draw in their Zone F game.
