Humble Lion's head Geoffrey Maxwell is expressing confidence that his team can win this year's Flow Champions Cup/Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Knockout competition.
Maxwell made his prediction following his team's come-from-behind 2-1 victory over fellow National Premier League campaigners Cavalier on Wednesday to book their place in the second round at the Effortville Sports Complex in Clarendon.
Roberto Fletcher and Omando McLeod were the scorers for Humble Lion. Claudious Blackburn scored the lone goal for Cavalier.
"The team has shown in our win against Cavalier what it takes to deliver the Flow Cup," said Maxwell. "However, it is still early days and we just have to continue to work hard."
"Our intentions are consistency and we will be ready for all types of opposition because we would like to win it," he said.
Meanwhile, Axum and Barbican also booked their spots in the second round following contrasting victories over Highgate United and Exchange.
Axum sealed their place in round two with a 2-0 win over Highgate United. Barbican recorded an exciting 4-2 penalty kick victory over Exchange, this after both teams had played to a 1-1 draw at full and extra time.
Dadrian Dixon, Oshane Provast and substitute Afifa Clarke converted from the penalty spot for the Shaun Charlton-coached Barbican. Kemar Brown, Marvin Stewarton, Jermaine Parris and Vivian Hinds were guilty of missing for the Ocho Rios-based Exchange.
