Wolmer's Boys' sent out a strong warning to their rivals in this year's Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/LIME Manning Cup football competition, with an 8-0 thrashing of Clan Carthy in their rescheduled group C encounter at Stadium East yesterday.
The Ludlow Bernard-coached Wolmer's were led to victory courtesy of two goals each from captain and national Under-17 representative Kimo Wallace (58th, 85th) and Corey Bennett (47th, 54th).
Jason Greenland (24th), Kamario Osbourne (47), substitute Jaheel Hyde (88th) and Akeem Smith (89th) were the other scorers for the Heroes Circle-based institution.
Wolmer's, one of the favourites to win this year's title, have so far recorded three straight victories in the tournament. They are also the top-scoring team in the competition this season with 20 goals, while conceding one goal.
"They are a very confident bunch and I know that this would at least alert everybody to our presence in competition," said Bernard.
Mallawe Blake, coach of Clan Carthy, said, "My team failed to follow instructions. We backed off and gave them too much space."
