… Bishops’ High to face Sir Leon’s Lessons; Morgan tackle Carmel
QUARTER-FINAL action is on today and tomorrow in the Petra-organised Milo Schools Football Festival, billed for the Ministry of Education ground on Carifesta Avenue.
In the first game of the day from 13:00hrs, the Bishops’ High will take on Sir Leon’s Lessons in a stern first encounter. The Bishops’ will be riding high after their win last week over arch rivals Queen’s College, but they must put that behind them and focus on the task ahead.
And it is by no means an encounter that should be taken lightly, considering the fact that Sir Leon’s Lessons have been thrashing opponents by six-goal margins. Their last game against Dolphin Secondary ended 7-1. They have also managed to keep their concession levels low.
All in all, it’s a fight against the tide for the Bishops’ High considering the quality and level of the opposition.
In the day’s second game, Morgan Learning Centre will take on Carmel Secondary in another brawl to the finish with the Carmel side being the underdogs.
It will take a host of skill for the Carmel side to overcome their Morgan opponents, something they are known for, having reached this far in the competition. However, they take on one of the tournament powerhouses and it will be interesting to see what their game plan is.
They must weather the storm of Morgan’s all-out attack which has a plethora of finishers in the final third and hope to push past a defence which has also managed to keep its concession rate decent.
That match is billed for 15:00hrs.
