MONTEGO BAY, St James — Newcomers Garland Primary and Bickersteth Primary were both beaten in their opening games of the Victoria Mutual Foundation/St James Football Association Under-13 competition at the UDC field on Friday.

Lethe All-Age beat Garlands 1-0 in a Zone E game, while former champions Flankers Primary were 2-0 winners over Bickersteth Primary in their Zone A game.

Xavier Gazoarba's 50th-minute goal carried Lethe All-Age to their first win as they joined defending champions Granville Primary at the top of the zone on points.

In the second game, Flankers Primary opened their account with goals from Derrick White in the 42nd minute and Ackeem Austin in the 48th minute.

On Thursday, Corinaldi Avenue Primary, last season's beaten finalists, opened their season with a 3-0 win over St James Prep in a Zone B game, while in the two other games, Catherine Hall Primary vs DMP Academy and Howard Cooke Primary against Chetwood Primary both ended in 0-0 draws.

Venroy Lynch gave Corinaldi Avenue the lead in the ninth minute, and Courtney Kinglock doubled the advantage in the 15th minute for a 2-0 half-time lead.

Jamoy Linton then scored in the 42nd minute to secure all three points for the former champions.
