Siparia West Secondary moved a step closer to claiming the Tiger Tanks Secondary School Football League Boys Championship Division South Zone crown with a 7-2 thumping of Fyzabad Anglican Secondary on Friday last.

The win was the fifth from as many matches for Siparia West to lead the five-team table with a maximum of 15 points, eight clear of Pt Fortin East and Ste Madeleine who battled to a 3-3 draw in the zone’s other match, and who both have a match in hand.

In the Central Zone, Presentation College of Chaguanas made it three straight wins via their 6-3 spanking of Couva East to lead with a maximum of nine points, three more than Miracle Ministries, 11-0 victors over ASJA Boys College.

Arima North also maintained their 100 per cent winning record with a fifth win in a row in the East Zone following a 4-1 beating of Manzanilla to stay five points ahead of El Dorado East, 4-0 winners against Holy Cross College while Valencia downed Five Rivers, 3-0.

In the North Zone, leader St Mary’s College regained its winning ways with a 4-2 win over Tranquillity Secondary to improve to 13 points from five matches, three more than Trinity College Moka, 2-0 victors over Mucurapo West Secondary.

The race is much closer in the Tobago Zone with Bishop’s High School’s 3-2 win over Mason Hall Secondary pushing them to ten points from four matches, and a one-point lead over Scarborough Secondary who spanked Roxborough Secondary 4-2 for a third win from as many matches played while Signal Hill defeated Goodwood Secondary 5-1.

At the end of the five zonal competitions, the divisional winners will advance to the SSFL Championship Division “Big Five” from which the top three teams will gain promotion to the Premier Division for the 2023 season.

Central Zone SSFL matches postponed due to COVID-19

Matches in the Tiger Tank Secondary Schools Football League Boys Championship Division Central Zone have been postponed for the week, beginning with the two matches carded for today.

This after the SSL issued a press release via General Secretary Azaad Mohammed-Khan which said that due to an abundance of caution, all games in the Boys Championship Division of the Central Zone scheduled for October 4, and October 7 have been postponed due to a date to be determined.

Due to the fact that students from Presentation College, San Fernando and Couva East Secondary have been exhibiting COVID-19 related symptoms, the SSFL has taken a decision to postponed the matches. Both teams faced off in a league match on Friday last which Presentation College won 6-3 on Friday last.
