Bet on Garvey Maceo to win five-straight today in daCosta Cup

Garvey Maceo High look set to become the first school to win five-straight games in the 2018 ISSA/Wata daCosta Cup schoolboy football competition, which continues on Friday with Match Day 9.

The 2007 winners of the competition, who on Wednesday reached four-straight victories, will now visit Winston Jones High to face a team that is second-from-the-bottom of the group.

Winston Jones High have only tallied four points from four games so far and during that run have found the back of the net on three occasions and let in a dozen goals. The school's match record this season shows a 3-0 victory against Cross Keys on Match Day 1, which represents its first-ever win in the competition. However, that achievement has failed to lift them. Since that time, Winston Jones High have failed to score another goal and should present Garvey Maceo High with a gift.

Garvey Maceo High are leading Zone M with maximum 12 points from their four matches with Denbigh second with seven points, the same as third-place Glenmuir High.

Over in Zone C, Spot Valley will seek a victory when they travel to William Knibb High, which will enable them to retake the lead at the top.

In another interesting zone, Maggotty High will try to replace St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) at the top of Zone E with victory at Newell High's home field at Treasure Beach Sports Complex.

STETHS lead the zone with10 points with Maggotty in second on nine and Newell third on five. A victory for Maggotty would move them to 12 points and ahead of STETHS, which will be in action on Saturday.
