MONTEGO BAY, St James — Granville Primary got off to a winning start to the defence of the Victoria Mutual Foundation St James Football Association Under-13 Competition yesterday, beating another former champion, Anchovy Primary, 2-0 in the opening game at UDC Field.

Moses Clarke and T'Twaine Thompson got a goal in either half as Granville Primary picked up from where they left off last season when they completed a perfect season, winning all seven games without conceding a goal, to take the lead in Zone A.

Clarke scored from close range in the eighth minute to put the champions in the lead before Thompson secured the full points in the 57th minute, three minutes before full time.

Three more games will be played today featuring three former winners — Corinaldi Avenue Primary will face St James Prep in the first game set to start at 10:00 am, followed by newcomers Garlands All-Age against Lethe at 11:15 am, and Howard Cooke Primary against Chetwood Primary in the 12:30 pm game.

Five newcomers are among the 32 teams taking part in the competition that will run about two months — Garlands, Bickersteth Primary, Olympus Academy, Hosanna Prep, and Pinnacle Prep — while two schools will return after missing last year — Catadupa Primary and Heinz Simonitsch Prep.
