SCHOOLBOY soccer stars of Jamaica and Trinidad put on a fine show at Sabina Park last night in the second match of the tournament between schoolboys of two colonies. The Jamaicans distinguished themselves as they emerged victorious.

The good news for Jamaicans is that the All-Manning team defeated St. Mary's College, schoolboy soccer champions of Trinidad, by two goals to nil, after a goalless first-half.

The goals were scored in the 45th minute by inside left, Winston Walker, and the 58th minute by Noel Sproul.

The match was one of the best schoolboy games seen here. The forwards of both sides were fast, and played constructive football, and the defence giving splendid support.

Both keepers had a lot to do, and Michael King for the winning team gave quite the best display since the days of another brilliant St. George's keeper, Aston Parchment.

The positional play of the St. Mary's team was again good, but the shooting of their forwards lacked the power and accuracy of the opening match.
