Kingston College (KC) and last year's beaten finalists St Andrew Technical High School (STATHS) were among four schools, which kept their perfect records following Match Day 7 of the 2018 ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup football competition on Tuesday.

KC won 4-0 at Calabar High to tick off their third straight victory. Dwayne Atkinson led the way with two goals in two minutes after Oneeka Allen (44th minute) and Treyvon Reid (49th minute) had put the 'Purples' 2-0 ahead.

Atkinson's goal came in the 77th and 79th minutes as KC moved to maximum nine points from three games to lead Group B courtesy of goal difference over Mona High, which also defended their perfect record with a 1-0 home win against Clan Carthy High.

STATHS hammered Cedar Grove High 6-0 at Cedar Grove Football Field to remain in second place in Group A behind St George's College, which also secured a big victory by beating Tarrant High 7-0 at Winchester Park and in the process also defended their perfect record.

Both STATHS and St George's College are locked on maximum nine points, but the Neville Bell-coached team is leading the group courtesy of goal difference.

Meanwhile, Bridgeport High and Excelsior High had their perfect records snapped.

Bridgeport High suffered a 2-0 defeat against Tivoli Gardens High at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex, while Excelsior High also lost on the road, this at St Catherine High
