|Leaders Shiva Boys to visit San Juan |
Wednesday, September 27 2017
LEADERS Shiva Boys will be gunning for their sixth successive win, in the Premier Division, of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) when Sixth Round action takes place today.
The only team among the 16 competitors with a 100-per cent record, Shiva Boys will make the drive from Penal to Bourg Mulatresse to oppose fifth-placed San Juan North.
Shiva Boys, the 2016 Premier Division winners, and Presentation San Fernando have yet to taste defeat this season. But, if Shiva Boys are beaten today, then Presentation can claim first place if they get past arch-rivals Naparima at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.
Fatima have climbed up to fourth spot, on the basis of three straight wins.
They can continue their fine form of late when they host the struggling Trinity Moka at the Fatima Ground in Mucurapo.
Third-placed Fyzabad will also aim to keep pace with the top two when they visit St Augustine.
Also on today’s schedule, St Benedict’s will host Signal Hill at Debe, QRC will travel to Trincity to face Trinity East, St Anthony’s will entertain Speyside at Westmoorings and St Mary’s will meet Carapichaima East at the CIC Ground in St Clair.
Today’s matches will all begin at 3.40 pm.
In related news, the League has announced that a pair of matches will be staged on Monday - St Mary’s versus St Augustine at the CIC Ground and St Anthony’s versus Fyzabad at Westmoorings.
The St Mary’s-St Augustine game (originally carded for September 9) and the St Anthony’s- Fyzabad meeting (originally set for Saturday last) were postponed due to waterlogged outfields.
Additionally, the Round 12 fixtures have been pushed back by 24 hours to October 19, due to the observance of the Divali holiday.
