Dinthill crumbling under McGrath’s rule

The once indomitable Dinthill Technical High School from Linstead, St Catherine, has found itself at the bottom of Zone K in the ISSA/Wata daCosta Cup football competition, and is struggling to advance to the second round.

Dinthill, the only school from the Linstead area that reached the semi-final last year, has lost the three matches it played so far this season.

The school lost 1-0 to McGrath in the first encounter on September 7; it was beaten 1-0 by Enid Bennett High on September 14; and it lost 2-3 to Charlemont High on September 21.

Dinthill will next play Charlemont at 3:30PM on Saturday, September 28, at Charlemont High School.

McGrath High, in the meantime, has been on an unusual roll this season, topping Zone K with nine points so far, and winning all three matches already played.

McGrath defeated the three other schools in Zone K – Dinthill, Enid Bennett High, as well as reigning Ben Francis cup winner Charlemont High School, which currently is playing in its almost traditional second-place position in the zone.

Ewarton High School, which is usually featured in the zone, did not enter the competition this year.

The leader, McGrath, in the meantime, will next play Enid Bennett High School on Saturday, September 28, at Bybrook Sports Club, starting at 3:30PM.
