The action may be heating up in the boys' division of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) but they aren't the only ones in the thick of the action as the girls division kicked off last Sunday with action in the north and south zones.
Diego Martin Central ran riot with an 8-0 win over St Joseph's Covent Port of Spain, moving into second place after their 3-3 opening match draw with Success Laventille. They trail St Francois Girls by two points, as a result of St Francois notching their second win in two matches, beating Bishop's Anstey 2-0 in the opener and Providence 4-1 on Thursday. Bishop's Anstey beat Success Laventille in a close 4-3 win.
Fyzabad Secondary put five unanswered goals past St Joseph's Convent San Fernando to register their second win after their 11-0 rout of San Fernando East Secondary. Sando East again suffered a big defeat as Point Fortin East also put 11 past them to make sure they stay bottom of the South group. Point Fortin East lead the standings in the South, followed by Fyzabad Secondary.
Despite Roxborough withdrawing from the competition, action went on as planned in Tobago, with Scarborough beating Mason Hall with a comfortable 3-0 win to send them to the top after the first round of matches. Bishop's High and Speyside played out a 0-0 draw in the division's other match.
Over to east, and St Augustine were unable to get the better of Bishop's Anstey East as the teams drew 2-2. San Juan North Secondary edged St George's College 1-0 to register the only win in the opening round.
