Arima, Fatima battling to qualify.

With ei­ther three or four rounds of match­es to go in the Cham­pi­onship Di­vi­sion of the Sec­ondary Schools Foot­ball League (SS­FL), no teams are sure of clinch­ing the top spot in their re­spec­tive zones, to qual­i­fy them for a place in the play-off at the end of the sea­son.

The win­ner of each zone will ad­vance to a play-off and the top three will earn pro­mo­tion to the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion of the SS­FL.

The zones will en­ter an­oth­er round of ac­tion this af­ter­noon and in the east zone, Ari­ma North Sec­ondary, known pop­u­lar­ly as the "Di­al Dy­namos" will fan­cy their chances of re­turn­ing to top-flight schools foot­ball with 15 points from five match­es. Ari­ma will be up against El Do­ra­do East, a team they de­feat­ed 4-0 in the first meet­ing be­tween them.

On­ly last Fri­day, the Ari­ma Boys thrashed Mal­abar Sec­ondary 4-0 to main­tain their un­blem­ished record. And foot­ball pun­dits are al­ready pre­dict­ing that once the Arim­i­ans can con­tin­ue win­ning against teams they de­feat­ed in the past, they are cer­tain to en­ter the play-offs.

Mean­while, in the Cen­tral zone Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege, out of the pre­mier­ship di­vi­sion for the past few years, are carv­ing their route to the play-offs. 'Pres' are ahead on the stand­ing with nine points from five games, but will have to pin their hopes on some of the oth­er teams pre­vent­ing sec­ond place Ch­agua­nas North from sneak­ing past them. The Ch­agua­nas boys could fan­cy their chances with two games in hand, start­ing this af­ter­noon when the two teams (Ch­agua­nas North and Pres) square off this af­ter­noon at Ch­agua­nas North grounds.
