Familiar foes battle in nationwide schools football final

-Wismar/Christianburg looks to repeat while Waramadong seeks revenge

Efficiency will meet elegance when the grand finale of the Digicel national U18 Secondary Schools Football Tournament commences today from 18:30hrs at the Police Sports Club (PSC) ground, Eve Leary with a rematch of last year’s final between Waramadong Secondary and Wismar/Christianburg Secondary.

Billed as a matchup of contrasting approaches, national champions and Region 10 juggernaut Wismar/ Christianburg Secondary will look to cement their legacy while solidifying a dynasty when play commences.

Piloted to their maiden national title by a 5-2 score line compliments of a Marimarleque Davidson helmet trick, an organized and compact display will be required if a second title is to be realised for the three-time consecutive national finalists.

Modelled on the concept and principles of a possession-based offence or total control football, Waramadong will look for an improved performance following their semifinal rollercoaster ride when they face a familiar foe.

Survivor and scorer of the losing 2012 side, Whazir Bascombe, will lead a capable offence in conjunction with Keevon Richmond and Fernando Hunter when play commences.

In the third place playoff at 16:30hrs, Georgetown Champions St. George’s High will look to salvage some pride as they face competent Region Four outfit Covent Garden Secondary in an keenly anticipated matchup.

Reeling from their semifinal capitulation, St, George’s will look for an improved collective output as they aim to finish the tourney on a relative high note when they oppose the East Bank unit buoyed their recent semifinal displays.

With nothing to play for except pride, an open high scoring contest is envisioned.
