Roderick Granville and Richard King both grabbed braces for Clarendon College as Omar Reid, Kaheim Rose, Sheldon Smart, and Jaland Larmond all got one goal each as the champions had their biggest win of the season.

Dinthill Technical continued to make full use of their second chance as beat Petersfield High 2-0 thanks to a brace from Karim Bryan and they have now won their last five games without giving up a goal.

Group 2 is a three-team race after a late penalty from Dane Golding gave Manchester High a win over Cornwall College to take over the lead with four points as the losers slipped to third on goal- difference behind Garvey Maceo High who beat Maggotty High 2-0.

Cornwall College ended the game with 10 players after Solano Birch was sent off midway the second half after getting his second yellow card of the game.

Marvin Williams and Kimani Sylvera scored for Garvey Maceo in their victory.

At the Collin Miller Sports Complex in Lucea, second-half substitute Abijah Wallace scored twice as Mannings School came back from two goals down to earn an exciting 2-2 draw against Anchovy High.
