The second edition of the ISSA/FLOW Super Cup final promises to be an instant classic as the two most dominant corporate area schoolboy football teams in the last eight years, Jamaica College and St. Georges College face off today at 6pm inside the National Stadium.
Defending champions Jamaica College blanked Wolmer’s 2-0 to reach their second Flow Super Cup final, while St. George’s College trumped St. Jago 3-1 to set up a dream final, set to take place inside the National Stadium on Saturday.
Jamaica College knew they had the talent to beat Wolmer’s who has been playing as a good unit this season. The Old Hope Road based institution had a lot at stake as they lost to Wolmer’s at the same stage in the Walker Cup a few weeks ago and they are going meet again later this week to decide who advances to the semifinals of the Manning Cup.

Vauxhall held Wolmer’s 1-1 in their Manning Cup second round match that was called off in the 83rd minute due to rain at the Constant Spring field on Monday. Based of the rules of the competition the seven minutes plus time to be added on will be played on another day.
Wolmer’s defeated Jamaica College 4-3 on penalties on Wednesday to book a spot in the Walker Cup final , where they will meet St. George’s College who edge St. Jago 3-2 at constant spring where both games was played.
The sun was barking down at Constant Spring, which set the tone for an exciting double header. Jamaica College started the game well and was trying to settle and move around the ball, but Wolmer’s did not allow that happen for any long periods in the game as they were very alert and quick to clear their lines.

A few years ago, after the Jamaican triumphs in Beijing and Berlin, an IAAF team visited Jamaica to do a feature on our Track and Field program. A shy then 12 or 13 year old Devaughn Baker of Jamaica College told the IAAF representative that he wanted to do well at track and field so that he could help his mother of whom he spoke glowingly.
