Kingston Technical High School (KTHS) accounted for another big scalp on matchday seven of the 2021-22 ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup competition by defeating many-time champions St George’s College 3-1 at the Stadium East field on Tuesday.
The victory came six days after the Shaun Charlton-coached team upset reigning champions Jamaica College (JC) 1-0 at the Ashenheim Stadium at Jamaica College (JC).
With the victory, KTHS moved to nine points from four games for a three-point lead atop Group A. They have now won three straight games following a 2-1 defeat against Charlie Smith High in their opening game on November 13.
Bridgeport High and Kingston High won the other two Group A games on the day.
Portmore-based Bridgeport High edged Charlie Smith High 1-0 at Prison Oval in Spanish Town to secure their first victory of the season.
Despite the defeat, Charlie Smith High remained in second place courtesy of goal difference over third-place St George’s College. Both teams are on six points but Charlie Smith have played four games compared to St George’s three.
Bottom-place Kingston High beat Calabar High 1-0 in the second game at the Stadium East field to also secure their first victory of the season.
Calabar, which have played three games, remained fourth in the table on four points, still two points behind Charlie Smith and St George’s College.
JC, which have also played three games, are also on four points but fifth in the table.
Bridgeport hold down sixth place with three points the same as bottom-placed Kingston High.
Meanwhile, an ISSA release ahead of the games stated that St Mary’s College have withdrawn from the competition. The release said all their results are null and void.
St Mary’s College had played two games and suffered heavy defeats. They were trounced 26-0 by St Catherine High in their second match last week Thursday at Spanish Town Prison Oval and lost 13-0 against Wolmer’s Boys in their season’s opener.
