FOLLOWING their recent success in regaining the Greg Garrell Knockout football title, the Glenston Hutchinson-coached G.C. Foster College male football team made it clear that they will be gunning for the double after battering Moneague Community College 7-0 in their Group A opener.

It was a different story for the University of West Indies (UWI), who were surprised with a 0-1 defeat away to the College of Agriculture and Science (CASE) in Group B through an 84th-minute goal from substitute Magate Duncan.

Despite dominating the game for long periods, the UWI team failed to find the back of the net as they were let down by poor finishing by Andre Bernal and Mitch Wright. Wright should have put his team in the lead midway the first half, but failed to do so with an open goal at his mercy, as he kicked wide of his target.

In other Division One games, the University of Technology edged Caribbean Maritime Institute 1-0, while home team Northern Caribbean University played to a 2-2 draw with The Mico University College.

In Division 11 action, Church Teachers' College put away International University of the Caribbean 6-2, Edna Manley had a big 5-1 win over Portmore Community College, and Sam Sharpe slipped by Bethlehem Moravian College 2-0.

In the female division, defending champions G.C. Foster College made it two from two with another big win as they put away Portmore Community College 2-0. This followed up on their big 13-0 win over Montego Bay Community College in their opening match two weeks ago.

The game between home team, Mico University College, and Church Teachers' College was not played as their was a clash of colours.
