daCosta semi spots up for grabs

Richard Bryan, STAR Writer

The semi-finalists in this year's ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup will be decided today.

An extraordinary situation exists where all eight teams involved across two zones have a chance of getting into the last four.

Ben Francis knockout champions St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) in Zone A and Glenmuir High (Zone B) are in pole position to advance. Both need only a draw to reach the last four, regardless of the outcomes of the other match-ups.

goal difference

STETHS have six points from victories against Cedric Titus and Garvey Maceo and play Manning's at home in Santa Cruz. Manning's, with three points, need to win big and hope that they can advance on goal difference ahead of Cedric Titus and Garvey Maceo. Garvey Maceo are without a point but could put themselves in contention with a big win and defeat for Manning's.

Zone B is even more intriguing. Glenmuir lead with four points, followed by the pair of Frome High and Bog Walk High with three, and Manchester High with a single point. A draw will be good enough for the Jackie Walters-coached Glenmuir at Frome, but a similar result will hurt the home side providing Manchester win.

It would be curtains for Manchester if Bog Walk win at Kirkvine. A draw is only good for the St Catherine-based Bog Walk if Glenmuir win, as they have a terrible goal difference following their 6-0 loss to Glenmuir in the first game of the round-robin series.
