Linden Foundation Secondary School advanced to the second round of the Digicel Schools football tournament after securing a walk over from Mackenzie High School. Referee Kevin Stephens ruled a walkover after Mackenzie Secondary failed to field the seven players required to contest the match. Only six players turned up for the game which was scheduled for the Linden Technical Institution ground but was instead shifted to the Bayrock Ground, Wismar.
The six players who were all geared up, opted for a practice match against the Linden Foundation which was accommodated by the referees.
The round two match between Linden Foundation and Christianburg Secondary is scheduled for next Tuesday at the Linden Technical Institute Ground.

The lone goal for North Georgetown was scored by Keon Douglas in the 41st minute.
