The scheduled double header to determine who will play for the championship trophy and $500,000 winner’s purse, sponsored by Freddy and Raffee Butchery, is set to feature a meeting between Platinum Gulley Side Warriors and Unknown Warriors in what promises to be a keenly contested clash, while the other game will see Mighty Rulers opposing Klassic Super Stars.
In latest results from the tournament, which opened on November 19 in the Mining town, Mighty Rulers overcame I Movement Eagles 3-1 in the opening contest of last Sunday’s double fixture.
Devon Elias in the 20th minute and Andrew Murray with a double strike in the 67th and 90th minutes secured victory and a place in the semis for their team.
Unknown Warriors secured their spot by defeating Indio Mining 1-0 compliments of Colin Semple’s 13th minute goal.
