MONTEGO BAY, St James — Club Ville SC and Violet Kickers will meet this afternoon at the UDC field in the first leg of their St James Football Association's Sandals/ATL Division One semi-finals. This encounter is set to start at 3:30 pm.

Club Ville SC won Zone One in the regular season, just ahead of Bogue FC, while Violet Kickers were second in Zone Two, well behind winners Cambridge FC.

The teams are scheduled to meet in the return leg next Thursday with the winners on aggregate meeting the winners of the other semi-final between Bogue FC and Cambridge FC in the final of the competition on April 28.

On Monday, Bogue FC scored an upset 1-0 win over Cambridge FC in their first-leg semi-final, also played at the UDC field.

Christopher Johnson scored the game's only goal in the second half, giving them the lead going into next Monday's return leg at the same venue.

Cambridge FC played the final 65 minutes of the game with 10 players after Obrien Bent was sent off in the 25th minute when he received his second caution of the game. He will miss the return leg.

Johnson, who was picked out on the right flank by a pass from Nicholas Brown, dribbled past three defenders before powering the ball past goalkeeper Chad Trough in the 53rd minute.

Cambridge FC, last season's Division Two champions and favourites to win the Division One this season, then launched several attacks and had several good scoring chances, but Bogue FC's goalkeeper Marquise Malcolm pulled off a string of brilliant saves to preserve his team's lead.
