Today’s quarter-finals a must see for scouts, fans
Today’s round of quarter-final matches in this year’s Milo Under-20 Schools Football Competition is anticipated to provide enthralling action for fans, at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue.
In the opening fixture at 11:00 hrs, Christ Church square off against South Ruimveldt and this encounter should provide the fireworks needed to get the day going with the outcome proving to be a difficult proposition.
Rahul Alpin, Wainwright Adams and Shamar Carrington were the players on target for Christ Church in their previous game so it is automatic that they are ones that the team will be relying on to duplicate their last performance.
They key to South Ruimveldt’s hunt for a place in the semi-finals rest on the display of Cecil Jackman, whose performance in their previous match was instrumental in the victory.
What more could be said about the game to follow between Lodge and Dolphin which rightfully could be looked at as the match of the day.
Lodge, a former champion of the tournament, is expected to have in its line-up players the calibre of Shamar Smith, Frank King, Simeon Hackett and Leon Blake and this quartet is an explosive one and thwarting their goalscoring proficiency will require some robust and concentrated defending to stop.
On the other hand, Dolphin, beaten finalist last year, have make it no secret since the start of this year’s competition that they intend to return to the championship round and win it all and the truth is that they’ve looked untroubled to date so Lodge will have to be at their best to obstruct their forward thrust.
The prolific Shawn Mohammed, Leon Richardson and Ryan Dowding will obviously have a say in their pursuit of victory.
In the third game of the day, defending champion Chase Academic Foundation opposes North Georgetown and while the latter impressed in their 4-2 win over St. John’s College in the Round of Sixteen segment, many believe that the reigning title holder’s offensive firepower may prove too much for their opponent.
Kelsey Benjamin, Rayn Hackett and Sunil Logan, goalscoerers in their previous encounter have looked irrepressible when on the attack and could again dominate proceedings.
On the other hand, North Georgetown’s Nehemiah Gomes has been lethal throughout the campaign and he has already shown what a one-man wrecking crew he could be, while support for his exploits could come from Daniel Nedd, Osafo Nedd and Christopher Waddell.The Queen’s College versus Bishop’s High is a game that has all the hallmarks of a blockbuster with bragging rights from all reports the central theme in this clash.
These two schools have always looked for ways to dominate each other and today’s meeting is another opportunity for one of them to do so and with the expected huge outpouring of supporters from the respective camps the arena could be a sellout.
Captain of Bishop’s High Shemar Britton, who is a former student of Queen’s College, will be at the helm of their pursuit of a place in the semi-final and as usual his calm temperament will be integral to the team’s chances of advancing.
Marquee player Lloyd Anderson, who netted the key goal to eliminate the highly-touted St. Rose High, is the main threat and everything hinges on how well he performs.
Queen’s College who survived a penalty shootout against Tucville will hope to improve their individual and collective performances against Bishop’s High.
Kevin Wills and Michael Hinter have been two of the key players in their setup and will no doubt be the ones that they depend on to lead them to victory.
