Despite the boys' team positive start, Bishop's assistant coach Bernard Allum is remaining cautious. He said, “We are taking things one game at a time. We had a solid start to the season, but we have not played the bigger teams as yet. “Hopefully by the time we get to the bigger teams, we will be pretty well fine-tuned."
Allum added, “We have to improve on our goal scoring. We have scored eight goals, but we have missed more than we scored.”
Bishops last won the title in 2017.
