JAMAICA: KC capture Walker Cup


Jamaica Gleaner / Kingston College's (KC) 16-year wait for a major schoolboy football trophy ended at the National Stadium yesterday when goals from Fabian Grant and AndrÈ McCathy saw them to a 2-0 win over rivals Jamaica College (JC) in the final of the ISSA-FLOW Walker Cup.

Coach Ludlow Bernard, who was winning his third Walker Cup title in four seasons (two at Wolmer's Boys), said despite missing out on the Manning Cup, he was pleased to have the North Street school winning trophies again after more than a decade without success and he said the players deserved all the praise.

"I am glad for the players. They are the ones who really wanted this, and they came out and worked hard and executed," he told The Gleaner . "It's good to have a trophy back at KC for the first time in 16 years … and a lot of people need to be reminded of that," he added.

Grant stunned the JC support when he fired the 'Purples' ahead just 30 seconds, beating Kojay Johnson in goal with a scorcher, which flew into the top corner from 20 metres.



INNACURATE BALLS JC controlled the first half but were let down by inaccurate final balls from open play and from set pieces. These were uncharacteristically off target by some distance, this in contrast to their opponents, who looked vibrant and up for the challenge throughout the contest.

The Hope Road-based JC started the second period brightly but soon fell behind, when McCathy doubled KC's lead with another stunner. Nine minutes into the half, the big striker received the ball with his back to goal and with no immediate danger in sight, spun, and unleashed a left-foot drive which Johnson could only help into the goal. Minutes later, he forced Johnson into another desperate save from a free-kick.

JC kept their heads up and continued to hunt a goal, but KC were well organised and kept them out for most of the game. However, in the last ten minutes, Duhaney Williams had two greats chances, but he failed to beat Jahvanni Grant from inside the area with eight minutes to go. Then in the final moments, he crashed a superb volley against the post and across the face of the goal and out.

Although the Walker Cup continues to elude coach Miguel Coley, he lauded the efforts of his players.

"The first goal really stunned us … and we gave away two soft goals. It was disappointing, but they got chances, and we got chances, but we didn't stop playing," he said.

Earlier, in the under-14 final, Tivoli Gardens defeated Kingston College 1-0.
