FORMER National Under-17 standout Andre Lewis struck three times to lead title holders St George's College to a 7-1 hammering of Cumberland High in the ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel Manning Cup Group C match at Winchester Park, North Street yesterday.
Lewis pounced in the sixth, 45th and 77th minutes to grab his treble, while Mark Brown (eighth), Zhelano Barnes (11th), Cardel Benbow (63rd) and Oshane Boothe (86th) completed the rout.
Kenrick Francis scored from the penalty spot in the 26th for the travelling team.
The moved win moved the Neville Bell-conditioned outfit to 10 points from four matches — the same as Hydel High, who whipped visitors Clan Carthy, 7-0.
Bell said he was satisfied with his team's use of the ball throughout the one-sided encounter, even if too many chances were missed.
"We wanted to win this game and we got that, so I'm happy with the victory. I think we missed too many opportunities, but I think we knocked the ball around nicely," he said.
