North Street derby takes place in Manning Cup today

Kingston College face rivals St. George’s College today, in what promise to be another very interesting ‘Battle of the North Street Giants’. Both teams have a lot at stake as this match decides who goes through to the semifinal in the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup.

The match is schedule to kick off at the Constant Spring field at 3pm. On paper, St. George’s College should win this encounter without much difficulty minus their captain Shevon Stewart who could rest his injury today.

Kingston College might have different plans as they are very energized to take on the team that no one seem to be able at the moment. Since the start of the second round on the Manning Cup the Light Blues have been in spanking form.

Make shift striker Alex Marshall is a dangerous customer and no school boy defender has the ability to mark him out of the game and Greggory Messam Jr who could captain the team today has a lot of magical touches that are just unstoppable.

St. George’s College needs only a draw to take the last semi-final spot, while Kingston College must win by a four goal margin and hope St. Jago does not defeat Haile Selassie by a seven goal margin at Prison Oval in a match that will be playing at the same time.

Kingston College has not been clinical in front of goal and it looks almost impossible to beat the title favourites by a four goal margin. KC will depend on the likes of Rashawn Mackison, Renrdo Scarlett and Nathan Jones to be at their best in order to put away the “Light Blues”.

Denham Town and Jonathan Grant are two surprise qualifiers for the semi-finals, while defending champions Jamaica College secured their spot with a 3-1 win over Wolmers yesterday. Jamaica College will face Denham Town while Jonathan Grant anxiously awaits the team that emerges from Group K today.
