Semi-final first, final later – Tegat

first_imgWestern Bureau:Clarendon College head coach Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis said the loss to Dinthill Technical in the daCosta Cup on Tuesday will have no bearing on his team’s chances against Wolmer’s Boys in the ISSA/Flow Super Cup quarter-finals, starting at6 p.m., the second game of a double-header at Sabina Park.The first game pits Glenmuir High against St George’s College at 4 p.m.According to Davis, that result, though not what they desired, is already out of their thinking, as they now have a Wolmer’s team very much up for the contest in the cross hairs.”As usual, we are confident, and are looking forward to a good game. I know Wolmer’s are a very good team, but we also have what it takes to triumph and to move on,” Davis said.That surprise loss was the first of the season for Clarendon College, but the champions they are will not allow them to surrender.The talented Joel Sterling is back from injury, and that should add some fireworks up front. Also, Seigle Knight and Roger Russell in combination are dangerous for this Clarendon side.HUNTING ALL FOUR TITLES”It is a long season. [There are] four trophies on offer and we are still in the hunt for all of them, so it means we are on track. We will not allow that loss to affect us. Wolmer’s are in front of us, and we need a victory. That is what we are featuring right now – a victory,” Davis noted.”We are settled, comfortable, confident and ready for this game. All things being equal, we will win. That is our hope for today,” he said.The Wolmerians are no push-over, but apart from the one blemish inflicted by Dinthill, their backline has been almost imp-eccable. Goalkeeper Erick Edwards, Tremaine Williams and Andrade Hunt will make it difficult for Wolmer’s to breach.Meanwhile, Romario Squire will add to the potent attacking force of Knight, Sterling, Russell and Alex Cummings.The game is poised to be a real humdinger between two schools that know how to find the back of the net.Last year, almost all the Manning Cup-based schools moved into the semis. This time around, Clarendon, STETHS and Glenmuir are hoping to mix things up with a run into the semis, providing they each log wins and, of course, the big dance – the final – where they seek to pocket a cool $1 million.”The final is where we need to be, but of course, we need to take care of business here and then we have a semi-final to get by,” said Davis, who, at the start of the season, said he has all the trophies in his sight.last_img read more
