KC and Edwin Allen win Boys & Girls Champs

In a great performance, Kingston College has won the 2019 ISSA Boys Championships (Champs 2019) over second place Calabar by almost the same margin as they lost to Calabar last year while Edwin Allen won the Girls Champs 2019 by 7 points over Hydel.

Boys Champs 2019

Not quite the 32-year drought ended by winning the Manning Cup last year, KC was winning Champs for the 32nd time and first time since 2009.  KC also broke the Champs points record with 396.5 points in winning.

Girls Champs 2019

On the girls side, it was Edwin Allen Comprehensive High that continued their dominance, this time with a narrow 7 point win over the impressive Hydel school.  It was their 6th straight title. Hydel protested one of the Edwin Allen relay wins but it was called as an Edwin Allen win.

Congratulations to Edwin Allen and Kingston College and all the great performances by athletes of all the schools.Great champs or was it marred by too many false start controversies?

Talk to me nuh.

It’s KC 3-2 over St.GC in the “Clash of the North Street Giants” Manning Cup 2018 Finals

Quite befitting, after 32 year drought, Kingston College (KC) finally lifted the coveted Manning Cup title, beating their long-time North Street rivals, St. Georges College (StGC) 3-2.  This was KC’s 15th Manning Cup title.

Dubbed “Clash of the North Street Giants” whenever they meet in football, KC had to come back from 0-1 and 1-2 deficits to eventually score the 2-2 equalizer in the 88th minute and winner in the 90th..

Congrats to the College, the young men, coaching staff, students, and supporters.  Big feat.

Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz repeat what Boyz did in 1998

Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz defeated Panama on penalty kicks in the 3rd place CONCACAF World Cup qualifying match to qualify for France 2019 Women’s World Cup.

The feat almost had to happen… You may remember that Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz qualified for their one and only World Cup birth in 1998… That World Cup was held in… you remember… France…

Congratulations to the Girlz.  As for Jamaica’s men’s and women’s national football (soccer) teams, and Jamaicans everywhere, don’t we wish the World Cup would always be held in France?

The Girlz need the support of Jamaicans in Jamaica and abroad, soccer fans across the Caribbean, and well-wishers.

What do you all have to say?
