5:02 pm Jamaican Time:
A late kickoff did not stop both teams from playing with high intensity. Edna had the lion share of possession in the opening 10 minutes, during which they had a counter attack fizzle out. Then NCU arose from their slumber and proceeded to dissect the Edna Manley defense with blistering wing play and direct runs through the middle. Gavaughn Ranger had a back post header saved that resulted in a corner kick; that was saved and ricocheted to Cordell Pennant from 20 yards out who volleyed it into the bottom left corner 13 minutes in.
NCU continued their high pressing style that resulted in another corner kick that forced an own goal from the Edna captain in the 22nd minute. Ed Woodburn continued his high work rate even though NCU was 2-0 up. After halftime NCU continued its dominance scoring four goals in 5 minutes. Christopher Dunn scored 2 of the lot (33’, 38’), Christopher Pennant added his second (35’), and Dormane White (36’) also caught in on the action.
A mistake from Rory Scott who had super “B” game throughout, gave away a penalty to Edna which they scored in the 41st minute. The game ended 6-1.
