(PHOTO: COLLIN REID)  MUNRO, St Elizabeth — St Elizabeth Technical High (STETHS) and Munro College snapped their three-game winning streak in the ISSA/LIME daCosta Cup football competition on Saturday after playing out a 1-1 draw in their Zone E top-of-the-table meeting at Munro College.

After combining for 37 goals scored and none conceded in their six combined games, the two powerhouses could only manage a goal each, both in the first half and had to settle for a point each.

 Khesanio Hall gave STETHS the lead with his 10th goal of the season, while Levar Dunchey responded for the home team as they stayed atop the zone with 10 points each.

Two rescheduled games will be played today, Cedric Titus High will go in search of their third straight win when they play away to Ocho Rios in a Zone I game at Drax Hall, while Tacky High and Charlemont will meet in a Zone K game.

Also on Saturday, Grange Hill and Clarendon College maintained their prefect winning runs, while Frome Technical High and Christiana High had their perfect starts snapped.

Norman Malcolm and Tedroy Daley scored for Grange Hill as they handed Black River their first loss after three draws with a 2-0 victory in Black River to stay atop Zone D with nine points, five points more than Mannings School, who swamped Knockalva Technical 7-0 with Melvin Blair and Romario Pessoa both scoring two goals.

Clarendon College made it four straight wins in Zone H, edging Lennon High 1-0 to open up a massive eight-point advantage over the loser, and Thompson Town, who had their first win over Edwin Allen, winning 2-1.

It was a stalemate at the Colin Miller Sports Complex in Lucea, as former champions Rusea's High and Frome Technical ended goalless in a mostly drab affair.

Frome, who lead Zone B with 10 points, had the better of the game but failed to make use on a soggy field.

Green Island High moved into third place on four points, one behind Rusea's after a 5-1 victory over Cambridge High at Green Island.

In Zone G, Christiana came back from two goals down with 10 players to earn a 2-2 draw with Spalding High at home, as Oshane Mullings scored his third goal of the season, and Ian Dyer got the other.

Herbert Morrison Technical moved to the top of Zone C after edging Holland High 1-0, while Spot Valley and William Knibb drew 1-1.
