Carapichaima, Couva clash today in SSFL
Reigning Big-Five and league champion Carapichaima East Secondary will have the odds stacked in its favour when it aims to remain perfect versus bottom clash against Couva West as the Central Zone in the BGTT First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League resumes today. All zones will return to action, with all matches scheduled to kick off at 3.45 pm. The Central Zone, which only played two rounds thus far is led by Caps, which has already won silverware this season, the Ormond Gabriel Memorial Trophy, which it earned by virtue of a victory over Coca-Cola InterCol champion St Anthony’s College.
Since then Caps has won both its opening league fixtures, scoring 15 goals and conceding just one in the process. Its opponent, Couva West has played just one match which ended in an embarrassing 11-0 loss to Tabaquite Secondary a week ago. In the North Zone, St Anthony’s College has taken the lead when it defeated formerly unbeaten St Mary’s College, 2-1, in midweek action. The team will be on the road today against Malick and is expected to pick up full points, as the latter team, which was just promoted, has failed to pick up a single point since the start of the season. The match will be played at the Hasely Crawford Stadium training pitch, in Mucurapo.
St Augustine leader of the East Zone championship will also seek to maintain its perfect record at home to San Juan North. St Augustine is on four straight wins with a combined 16 goals, while San Juan North has also been in fine goal-scoring form, but has conceded almost as many goals as it has scored. San Juan is on back-to-back wins and is third in the standings. Arima North, which is second, with two wins, a loss and a superior goal-difference (than San Juan North) will take on El Dorado West.
Meanwhile, South Zone’s newest leader Shiva Boys, which took over for Presentation College, will travel to Pleasantville Secondary. However, perhaps the match of the round will be Presentation College San Fernando’s meeting with St Benedict’s. Presentation, now second is off a goalless draw with newly-promoted Mayaro, and will be seeking a return to the top against a St Benedict’s team, which has won, lost and drawn one match for the season. In Tobago, Speyside, the only remaining unbeaten team will meet newly-promoted Pentecostal L&L, which is in good form. Speyside is off its first draw for the season, while Pentecostal, sitting third, is off back-to-back 1-0 wins over Signal Hill and Bishop’s High. The two teams will clash in Signal Hill.
