Knockalva Technical won their first game of the ISSA/Wata daCosta Cup football competition on Monday after blanking newcomers Belmont Academy 4-0 in their rescheduled Zone D game played at Sandals South Coast in Westmoreland.

Devonee Powell and Kingsley Alcock both got two goals each as Knockalva snapped a seven games winless run that started last season while doubling their goals scored this season.

Knockalva Technical had drawn their first three games, and the win pushed them into third place on six points, two behind joint leaders Petersfield High and Little London and two more than Mannings School with Belmont Academy still awaiting their first point of the season.

At Highgate Community Centre, St Mary Technical retook the lead in Zone J from St Mary High with a 2-0 win over Guys Hill High school.

Alva Duncan and Carlton Rose scored in the second half for St Mary Technical as they improved to 13 points, one more than St Mary High.
