MONTEGO BAY, St James - Cornwall College will start the defence of both titles won last year when they take on Herbert Morrison Technical in the ISSA/Freshhh Under -14 and Under-16 football competition on Friday.

The competition will kick off today with six games being played in western Jamaica, but Cornwall College, who won the Rural Area and national Under-14 titles last December, will start a day later.

Last year Cornwall College beat Knox College 1-0 in the Rural Area final, then beat Corporate Area champions Tivoli Gardens 5-4 in a dramatic penalty shoot-out after coming back from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

The teams combined for 18 attempts from the penalty spot.

Clarendon College won the Rural Area Under-16 title, but lost to Kingston College in the all-island play-offs.

Twenty-five schools from four western zones will take part in the Under-14 and Under-16 competitions this season.

Today, in Zone B, Irwin High will face Cambridge, Hopewell High and Anchovy will meet, while Rusea's High hosts Knockalva in both sections.

In Zone C, Belmont Academy hosts Frome Tech, Godfrey Stewart and Grange Hill will meet, and Maud McLeod hosts Petersfield in both sections, while Little London and Mannings School will meet in the Under-14 section.

On Friday, Herbert Morrison will host Cornwall College, Maldon and St James will meet, while Green Pond hosts Spot Valley in both sections in Zone A.

Holland High and Muschett High will meet in both sections in Zone D, while William Knibb Memorial and Troy as well as Albert Town and Cedric Titus will meet in the Under-16 age group.
