FROME, Westmoreland —The next three days could prove crucial for the top teams in Zone B of the ISSA/ Flow daCosta Cup football competition as two sets of games are scheduled.

After a slight hiccup, being held 0-0 at home by Green Island, former champions Rusea's High have reeled off three wins to lead with 16 points, four more than Frome Technical who are a point ahead of Green Island.

If the Lucea-based school maintain their momentum through the next two games, they could secure a place in the second round by Saturday, leaving Frome Technical and Green Island to battle for the other place in the two way play-off.

Today, 10-time champions Rusea's High will play away to Hopewell High at the Kenilworth Heart Academy; Frome will be away to Cambridge High, while Green Island will host Knockalva.

On Saturday, Frome will host Rusea's High hoping to avenge their 2-0 loss from last week, while Green Island will be home to Hopewell High.

Rusea's are coming off a big 5-0 whipping of Cambridge High on Tuesday to take their tally for the season to 21 goals, while Frome Technical made up for their loss at Green Island, edging them 1-0 at Frome to put their noses ahead.

On paper, Frome Technical would have the edge over the last two rounds with games against minnows Hopewell High and Knockalva Technical, while Green Island might have to face Rusea's High in the final round of matches with their place in the second round on the line.
