PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, January 3, (Reuters):

The touring Jamaica champion football team — Vere Technical High School lost the first match of their current tour in Trinidad at Skinner's Park, 30 miles south of Port-of-Spain.

The south Combined Colleges scored a 3-0 victory in a match that was rugged, skilful and fast yesterday.

Highlights of the match were the solid defence by the southeners against several brilliant raids by the Jamaican forward line. It was South's strong defence which gave them the game, as they foiled the Jamaicans' initiative.

Half-time score was 1-0.

The Jamaicans play Queen's Royal College in Port-of-Spain today.
