Billed as champions versus football minnows, title holders Jamaica College (JC) showed no mercy with Clan Carthy High, as they controlled, and bossed the game from start to finish, and strode to an easy 4-0 win in their ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup match, at the Jamaica College football field on Old Hope Road, yesterday.

Leading forward Ronaldo Brown stepped up with a brace in the 24th and 86th minutes.

Brown’s double puts him at three, so far, and he looks set to go past 20 for the season.

Prior to that, Khori Edmond sent JC ahead in the 22nd minute. Captain Allando Brown proved his reliability and versatility as a centre back to head home their third goal in the 27th minute.

“It is an amazing feeling to score two goals today,” Brown said, while noting that he idolises Junior Flemmings, who led JC’s scoring charge last season.

“I idolise Flemmings, and coach has called on me to step up and get goals like he did for our school. We are a championship team, and I am trying to build my legacy without being under pressure of living up to his name,” (Flemmings’) Brown assured.

The start of the game was delayed for close to an hour due to rain, but the home still went at their rivals from the first whistle.

Coach Miguel Coley said: “We were happy that we could win the game with a clean sheet. The killer instinct is not there yet, but that’s something that we have to instil. When you get teams like this, you want as many goals as possible; 10 if possible,” he told The Gleaner.

“Going forward, we are looking better and better, and that will be good for us,” he continued, adding “we have a good team, just that the killer instinct needs to be there.”

Meanwhile, Clan Carthy coach Mallawe Blake said his players didn’t follow instructions.

“We had chalkboard work at school and we knew that we couldn’t give JC too much space to play but the game just went away from us.

“We just have to regroup and face St Catherine at home on Friday,” he assessed.
