PENWOOD High school continued their impressive run in the ISSA/Pepsi/Digicel Manning Cup competition with their fifth consecutive win after Ricardo Greenward and Clifford Shaw scored hat-tricks in a 10-1 drubbing of Mona High at Cling Cling Oval yesterday.
Greenward netted in the 23rd, 28th and 79th minutes, while Shaw got his goals in the 36th, 59th and 81st minutes.
Substitutes Hakeem Green (87th) and Alwayne Wilkie (89th) and Kemar Robinson (14th) and Romario Williams (92nd) scored one each.
Tamar Edwards netted Mona’s lone goal in the 63rd minute.
Assistant coach Rupert Nicholas was elated with his team’s performance, noting that they get better each game.
“Every game we raise the bar a little higher and we get better, and that is why we came away with this result,” he said.
The home team completely dominated their opponents in the first half, with Mona spending most of the time defending their penalty area.
Robinson opened the scoring after 14 minutes, followed by a brace from Greenward and another from Shaw to give the host a 4-0 lead at the break.

The game between Jonathan Grant and KC was rained out.
