Round of Sixteen action in this year’s Milo Under-20 Schools Football Competition will commence this Saturday with four matches scheduled to be played, at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue.
In the opening game at 11:00 hrs, North Ruimveldt opposes former champion Lodge in what is anticipated to be a scorching affair.
Lodge will be depending on players the calibre of Shemar Smith, Leon Blake and Simeon Hackett to lead them to victory and a place in the quarter-final, while North Ruimveldt’s quest for victory and a spot in the last eight will rest on the shoulders of Tyrese Rowley, Ashaish Alleyne and Matthew Harrison.
Last year’s beaten finalist Dolphin then spring into action when they face Richard Ishmael and this encounter, too, promises fireworks, but the former have shown good form to date and have looked like they intend to go one step further this time.
Leon Richardson has been a model of consistency for Dolphin and he will be hoping that players like Akeem Daniels and Derick Ross are up to the task to offer him much support, while Richard Ishmael’s Tamiel Hutson, Isaiah Jack and Closson McLaren, who are among the leading marksmen for the team, continue their torment of opposing defenders.
Queen’s College then take to the field to match strides with Tucville and while the latter made a slow start in this year’s competition they’ve gradually improved and the former is being advised to take full notice of their improvement.
Tucville finished the group stage three points adrift of champions Chase Academic Foundation, who accounted for their only loss and they will feel that they now have the confidence and team chemistry to beat any team before them.
Star player Keifer Brandt, Calvin Peters and Julian Bamfield are the players whose responsibility it will be to secure a quarter-final spot, while Queen’s College search for a place in the last eight will depend on the performances of Michael Hunter, Kevin Wills, Damani Thomas, Ashmar Angel and Jumal Sampson.
The final game of the day is between St. Rose’s and Bishop’s High and this encounter could be an explosive affair.
The speedy Loncel Martin is the spearhead of St. Rose’s attack along with Shamar Jones, while the combination of Lloyd Anderson, Shemar Britton and Tyrese Souvenir has proven to be a lethal one for Bishop’s High.
The competition resumes the following day, at the same venue.
