Cedar Grove seeking first points of Manning Cup season
ACTION in the ISSA/Manning Cup competition will continue today with Clan Carthy High facing Cedar Grove Academy in Zone D action at the Alpha Academy field in the day’s only scheduled match. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m.
Clan Carthy, fourth in the group with three points behind the trio of St Andrew Technical (12 points), Excelsior High (12) and Bridgeport High (6), lost their first three fixtures of the season before they registered their first victory in their last outing with a 1-0 win over Tarrant High, and will look to carry over that form.
Their opponents, Cedar Grove Academy, will be looking to earn their first points of the season as they’ve lost all four fixtures while conceding a total of 17 goals. Only Tarrant, with 18, have conceded more.
Ahead of a number of matches tomorrow, Jahwan Payne of Haile Selassie High and Leon Brown of St Andrew Technical High are the leading scorers in the competition with seven goals each. Steven Bull of Eltham High and Mona High’s Denzel McKenzie are next with six goals each while Dwight Gentles of St Catherine High has scored four.
