Excelsior High cruised into the FLOW Super Cup quarter-finals following a 5-0 victory against Ocho Rios High at Sabina Park yesterday. The Mountain View Avenue-based Excelsior were never troubled dominated with goals by Kimani DeCombre in the fifth minute, Cadine Graham (12th), Ryan Spence (29th), Chad McKen (55th) and substitute Raewin Senior (87th). With Ocho Rios having few shots towards goal Excelsior’s goalkeeper Romario Palma had little to do and the margin of victory could have been much greater. Excelsior’s coach Shavar Thomas was satisfied with his team’s overall performance and the fact that the goals were scored by five different players. “We have been lacking in finishing and today the team spread the ball around with five different goal scorers,” Thomas, nattily dressed in a sports blazer, said. “The team does not rely on one striker as we have depth and can move players around,” he added. “At the end I’m pretty satisfied as we moved the ball around. We have a good group that can go deep in the competition,” Thomas pointed out. “I expected a better fight from Ocho Rios but my team did well today,” he shared. Ocho Rios coach Carlington Dodd said he was proud of his young team. “We are proud of the players. We wanted to fight but Excelsior are a better team. However, we will come back,” Dodd said.
