THE EDITOR, Sir:
This is an open letter to the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA).
Judging from the statistics on a sports website (tiny.cc/dcup), I would like to know how Holmwood Technical High (Zone G) advanced to the interzone round of the daCosta Cup over Cornwall College (Zone A), as one of the best third-place teams.
The statistics show Cornwall ending the first round on 15 points with more wins and a better goal difference than Holmwood which ended on 14 points, both having played the same number of matches - eight.
Could ISSA shed some light on this or point out any errors in the statistics? I have checked the ISSA website and it is badly in need of an update, and I have not seen any other published table of results to do any cross-checking. Thanks.
