Dinthill Technical High School from St Catherine secured a 1-0 victory at home yesterday, October 22, in the first encounter since cruising into the quarter finals of the ISSA/WATA daCosta Cup Football Competition.
Karim Bryan netted the ball in the 32nd minute of play against Port Antonio High out of Portland.
“It is a great feeling to know that I got the one goal for my school,” he told The Beacon.
“It was a good game although the sun killed it a little bit.”
Bryan, who hails from Mineral Heights in Clarendon and who developed a love for football ‘at a tender age’, said people should expect many more goals from him as the season progresses.
Port Antonio High, in the meantime, is optimistic about remaining in the competition despite the defeat.
Its coach, Marlon Hylton, told The Beacon: “It was one of those games [in which] we got our chances but didn’t take them. The guys came out here; we didn’t allow Dinthill to be a home team here.
“The spirit is high; we still have two games to go. That’s six points [if we win both remaining matches], and that still can keep us in the competition,” Hylton further said.
Meanwhile, the Dinthill and Port Antonio High match is the only one played in Group 3 so far.
The other two schools in the Group – Frome and Petersfield – will clash this afternoon.
