Keheim Dixon scored the first hat-trick in the ISSA daCosta Cup final in two years to lead Clarendon College to back to back undefeated seasons,  hammering Glenmuir High 6-2 in the final played at the national stadium on Saturday evening.

Garvey Maceo High’s Gregory Cousins had scored three times when they beat Mannings School 5-0 in the 2021 final.

It was Clarendon College’s 11th hold on the trophy and their fourth since 2018.

Still smarting from last week’s 3-2 beat down by Glenmuir High in the final of the ISSA Champions Cup, Clarendon College got off to a fast start, lead 3-0 after 21 minutes and never eased up as they scored the most goals in a DaCosta Cup final in many years.

Dixon scored in the second and 21st minutes and Jahmelle Ashley who also had a brace, got his first in the ninth minute.

Ashley got his second in the 38th minute as Clarendon College led 4-0 at the half time break.

Glenmuir High pulled a goal back in the 63rd minute through an own goal but Deandre Gallimore struck from the edge of the 18 yards box to restore Clarendon College’s four goals margin.

Despite the large deficit, Glenmuir High did not roll over and Orel Miller a second half substitute got his team’s second in the 75th minute but Dixon was not to be denied and completed his hat trick in time added on.
