Rodave Murray was again inspirational as the Anthony Patrick-coached Linstead based Dinthill Technical high school came from behind to win 2-1 win in semi-final game against Mancheser high at the Juici Field in Clarendon.
There were exhilarating and wild celebrations for the Dinthill supporters after the final whistle was sounded that signaled the end of a pulsating match that swung back and forth between two evenly matched teams. This celebration was reminiscent of when Dinthill rule schoolboy football in Jamaica in the late seventies and early eighties.
In addition to the two goals scored in yesterday’s match, Murray also missed an eighth minute penalty. His effort from the penalty spot struck the upright and went out of play, with Manchester High’s goalkeeper Nicholas King well beaten.
Dinthill appeared destined to pay for the miss chance when Manchester grabbed a 28th minute lead. Central midfielder Jarvis Mattis sent them in front with a well-taken free kick.
The goal appeared to have stung Dinthill into lifting their level of play with Murray, Anthony Hewitt, Ramone Brown and Antone Rule leading the charge with several dangerous attacks.
MURRAY’S CRITCAL GOAL
Murray, who came into the match on 25 goals on the season, showed his class and dragged his team back into the contest in the 43rd minute with a spectacular free kick.
Neither team was able to break the 1-1 tie even after the first period of extra time, but with two minutes remaining in the second period Murray, shrugged off his marker to slide the ball just under the advancing Manchester goalkeeper for the 2-1 victory.
Dinthill will meet either Ben Francis KO winners St Elizabeth Technical or Lennon High who meet today in the second semi-final set for 2:30 p.m. at the same venue.
Manchester High had taken an early lead through Jarvis Mattis but they failed to hold on to the advantage and their season ended after they had lost to St. Elizabeth Technical in the finals of the Ben Francis Knockout a week earlier.
Dinthill Technical who won the DaCosta Cup twice, in 1979 and 1981, will meet the winner of Saturday’s other semi-final between St Elizabeth Technical and Lennon High in the final, set for the Montego Bay Sports Complex next weekend.
