A hat-trick from Denislon Simpson carried the free scoring Kingston College to their sixth straight win of the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup competition on Tuesday when they beat St .Mary’s College 5-0 at the Stadium East Field.

The Ludlow Bernard coached team barely needed to get out of second gear in another dominating performance which saw St.Mary’s failing to test the Kingston College custodian for the entire 90 minutes.

It took Kingston College 23 minutes to unhinge the stubborn St. Mary’s defence when Romario Robinson fired into the roof of the net from just outside the area. Simpson made it 2-0 when he charged down the right flank before forcing his shot past the St. Mary’s custodian at his near post.

The prolific Dashwan Mackison made it 3-0 when he fired a powerful grounder into the corner of the net from 16 yards in the 43rd minute. Mackison made and scored the goal after he picked out Dashawn Donaldson inside the area before ghosting into the box for the return pass, dismissing a defender then drilling the ball into the corner of the goal.

Mackison was the architect of KC’s fourth goal when he played in an overlapping Simpson who calmly placed the ball into the corner of the goal in the 57th minute for his second of the game.

It was all one way traffic as St.Mary’s offered very little in attack.

KC spurned a number of easy chances with Mackison hitting the crossbar and Trayvone Reid hitting the upright before Simpson completed his hat trick and the scoring in the match when he virtually walked the ball into the goal in the 80th minute.

Simpson was hard on himself despite his starring role in the KC win. “I gave myself 60 % because I wasn’t rubbing the line as how I should. It was a wonderful game by my team, we all came out here and did what the coach told us to do and we executed well.

“Hopefully I can score at least two more (hat tricks),” he suggested when quizzed on what he had left in store for the season.

Ludlow Bernard was pleased that other players were getting on the score sheet for KC.

“The structure that we have in place is one in which it allows our wing backs to come forward and on any given day they can really get into the position. That is something we have be striving for, to get our fullbacks into very advanced positions.

“Today Denilson was the fortunate one to get the opportunities, but then again he made those opportunities for himself by ensuring he got in the right position.

“Mackison was kind of low today because he is under some medication and probably Trayvone had an off day, he was clearly very unlucky not to have scored but it is good that we can score goals and goals keep coming from other players on the pitch.”

Kinston College will next face Denham Town High on Friday at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex starting at 3:30 pm.
