School boy football is one of the biggest attraction here in Jamaica!
But I must admit, I rarely visit those matches, often time, prioritizing something else over it.

Truth be told, I'll typically watch football if the Reggae Boyz (or Reggae Girlz) are playing, and perhaps the world cup, but I would not consider myself a football fan by any measure
Note: I am a cricket maniac :-)
And so, with my school knocked out, and none of the other schools in Montego Bay in contention, the Dacosta Cup final, happening at The Catherine Hall Multipurpose stadium, was not the biggest priority for me.
But that was so, until my daughter started to press me about going.
Well, yes, I obliged, and it actually turned out to be a really thrilling adventure.
A Thrilling Adventure
Clarendon College (from Clarendon) was playing DintHill Technical (from St. Catherine) in the final of the big Dacosta Cup final, the top-tier of Rural area school football competition.
After a goalless first half that they dominated, Clarendon College put on their scoring boots and, in the end, recorded a commanding 3-0 win over Dinthill to record their ninth hold on the title.
Clarendon College was also celebrating a back-to-back title win, having also taken this coveted trophy in 2018.

It was also a perfect Dacosta Cup run for them, finishing unbeaten in their 13 matches. They actually won 12 matches and drew one; that against Lennon High earlier in the season.

With this (rural area's Dacosta Cup) win, Clarendon College will play Jamaica College, the winner of the urban area's Manning Cup competition to decide the prestigious Oliver Shield... the ultimate prize for schoolboy football supremacy in Jamaica.
Dinthill Technical High School last won the competition in 1981, the second of their only two title wins.
