It’s a two-team race to the finish in the Secondary Schools Football League’s Premier Division this year which will be decided next Saturday (November 4) instead of this weekend, as was originally scheduled.
Following a ruling that pushed St Anthony’s College to the top of the standing on goal difference over Naparima College on Thursday, the SSFL also made major changes on its fixture which will ensure that all rescheduled matches will be played before the crowning of the league winners, William Wallace, president of the SSFL said yesterday. The Tigers, with 30 points and a superior goal difference of 22 will travel to
CIC Grounds in St Clair needing a victory to maintain this position which would earn them the silverware. Naparima could change this with victory by a sizeable margin when they host second from bottom Trinity College Moka at their Lewis Street home.
In matches today, third on the standing Presentation will be up against St Augustine Secondary at Guaracara Park while St Benedict’s and Trinity College East will square off at Barrackpore in another game.
Presentation, who are on 23 points, have two more matches in hand which can earn them a possible second at the end depending on the results of the Naparima and St Anthony’s games. Also today under fire Shiva Boys Hindu College, who have been hardest hit by this season’s plethora of protest-room battles, will attempt to settle a score with Carapichaima away while in Tobago, Signal Hill will have a date with Fatima College at Blackrock.
Also today at San Juan, minnows Speyside will take on the home team- San Juan North. All matches begin at 3.40 pm.
