IT was high-scoring day in the Urban Area ISSA/Digicel/Pepsi Manning Cup schoolboy football competition yesterday. In the biggest win of the day, Camperdown High, led by seven goals from striker Dorado Phipps, swamped Cumberland High 13-1 in a Group A game at Bellevue playing field.
Phipps, who was scoring his 11th goal in two matches, netted in the sixth, eighth, 45th, 61st, 80th, 82nd and 90th minutes in leading his team to a convincing victory.
Damion Lowe assisted with a hat-tick for the East Kingston boys, while Ricardo Oldham scored twice and Renaldo Granham once in the rout.
In the group’s other match, Jamaica College (JC) brushed aside St Mary’s College 7-0 at Old Hope Road.
At Bellevue, Phipps and Lowe netted three goal apiece in the first half as the hosts led 6-1 at the break. Joel Hunter scored for Cumberland four minute before the interval.
Winning coach Orlando Clarke said his team has been creating many chances but have not been converting sufficiently. However, he said they were doing some work in front of goal and it was paying off.
“I have the players here, I only need to get them in the mental state that when they come into the big games they will perform like this,” he said.
“… Once we can keep the nerves on the big games, we should continue to win games,” he insisted.
Camperdown, with four wins from as many games, are second in their group with 12 points, one behind leaders JC.
Meanwhile in Group C, Calabar High and Innswood also had their shooting boots on as they both scored nine goals in respectivel victories over Kingston Technical and Papine High.
Calabar swamped Kingston Tech 9-1 and Innswood were 9-2 winners over Papine.
The group’s other game saw former champions Excelsior High cruising to a 3-0 win over St Andrew College at Mountain View Avenue.
Excelsior lead the group with maximum 18 points from six matches. They are followed by Innswood with 13 points and Calabar on 10.
