The big five teams in this year's ISSA/Flow daCosta Cup, including the defending champions St. Elizabeth Technical, are all in good stead after one game in the inter-zone round of the competition, and will feature today in a schedule of gripping importance.

STETHS will take the field against Lennon High in a match that could determine the fate of the champions with kick-off at 3:30 in Santa Cruz.

The top-of-the-table clash is a must win for Omar Wedderburn and his charges if they are to keep their mission alive of defending the title, while at the same time secure a place in the lucrative Flow Super Cup competition.

Lennon lead Zone Three courtesy of a better goal difference over STETHS, after drubbing Mile Gully 4-0 in midweek, while the champions masterminded a 1-0 result against Holmwood, who will now turn their attention on Mile Gully in the zone's other fixture.

 

Excitement

 

Meanwhile, there will be real excitement in Zone One, with a top-of-the-table showdown between Petersfield and the rampant Cornwall College. Both logged victories midweek and will be on the hunt for a win to solidify the claim of best in the zone.

Green Island and Cedric Titus on the other-hand are seeking their first points, after losing 1-2 and 0-3 to Petersfield and Cornwall College respectively.

Elsewhere, over in Zone Four, is another high quality matchup, as Clarendon College look to put the brakes on Spalding.

Both are on three points after opening second round wins, while Lacovia and Manchester seek to bounce back from losses when they take on each other. Things are interestingly poised in Zone Seven, as all four teams are on a single point, but with everything on the line there should be significant change by the day is out. There, Glenmuir meet Vere Technical, while Bog Walk will tackle Seaforth.

In Zone eight, Little London High will seek to continue to surprise, when they play Paul Bogle. The "Londonders" were impressive in a 3-2 victory over Garvey Maceo on Thursday.

The other game in the zone pits Kemps Hill, 1-0 losers to Paul Bogle midweek, against the hurting Garvey Maceo.
