KC, Clarendon to battle in Champions Cup final

Kingston College (KC) and Clarendon College will duel on Saturday inside the National Stadium for the ultimate all-island knockout prize of the Champions Cup. The match starts at 5 p.m.

The favourites, Clarendon Collge, have displayed a high level of comfort while in possession of the ball – something that is lacking with many schoolboy teams this season.

KC have won the trophy two seasons ago when it was then named FLOW Super Cup. That was the only time they have lifted the trophy aloft and will be seeking to become the first institution to win it twice, in this, the seventh edition.

Clarendon’s best effort in the tournament is making it to the semifinals in 2016 when they were eliminated by Cornwall, who eventually lost to Wolmer’s Boys’ School in the final.

In the first round this year, KC stopped Garvey Marceo 2-0, the identical score that Clarendon recorded over Wolmer’s. Ironically, KC and Clarendon also both recorded 2-1 victories over Frome Technical and St Andrew Technical, respectively, in the quarterfinals.

KC defeated Jamaica College (JC) 3-2 on penalties last week in the semifinals, which ended regulation time 1-1, while Clarendon ended the reign of Cornwall College with a 3-0 win.
