Clarendon College avenged their last defeat in the ISSA/Wata DaCosta Cup after beating Garvey Maceo High 4-3 on penalty kicks after they had played out a 1-1 draw in their semi-final game played at Glenmuir High in May Pen, Clarendon on Saturday.
Garvey Maceo High had knocked Clarendon College out of the semi-finals in the 2021 season on their way to their second title but came up short on Saturday as Clarendon College extended their unbeaten record to set up an all-Clarendon final against Glenmuir High.
Glenmuir High also won on penalties, 4-2 over Dinthill Technical in their game played at Manchester High, after they had played out a 0-0 draw in regulation time.
At Glenmuir, Clarendon College took the lead deep into time added at the end of first half when Malachi Douglas converted a penalty kick but Cleo Clarke equalised for Garvey Maceo in the 76th minute.
Clarendon College made a big decision to replace starting goal keeper Roshae Burrell with back up Lydel Rodney for the penalty shoot out and it paid rich rewards regular starter Roshae Burrell and it paid dividends.
Rodney came up big when he save Clarke’s penalty tilting the scales in his team’s favour.
Dinthill Technical ended the season with three straight losses after they were beaten 2-1 by BB Coke High in their final daCosta Cup quarter-final game and also by Kingston College in their ISSA Champions Cup game played on Tuesday.
