Following Tuesday's semi-final wins, first-time finalists John Rollins Success Primary will face former champions Corinaldi Avenue Primary in tomorrow's decider of the St James Football Association VMBS Under-13 competition at the UDC Field, set to start at 11:15 am.

An extra-time goal from Michael Samuels carried John Rollins Success Primary to an upset 1-0 win over defending champions Granville All-Age in one game, while Corinaldi Avenue Primary outplayed Howard Cooke Primary 2-0 in their game to set up tomorrow's clash.

Howard Cooke Primary and Granville All-Age will meet in the third-place consolation game set to start at 10:00am.

Tomorrow's game will feature two teams that are unbeaten all year and yet to concede a goal. But while John Rollins Success Primary are perfect through seven games so far, Corinaldi Avenue Primary drew their second quarter-final game against Barracks Road Primary.

John Rollins Success Primary will hope their momentum will continue after scoring against Granville All-Age for the first time in eight games.

Corinaldi Avenue Primary are in their first finals in about four years and are hoping to add to their titles.

John Rollins Success Primary and Granville were tied at 0-0 through regulation 60 minutes, and five minutes of the first period of extra time, before Samuels came up with the peach of a free kick from about 20 yards out, lifting the ball over the wall and dipping it under the bar in the top left hand corner.

Corinaldi Avenue's Jaden Jumpp scored in the first half of the other semi-final to give his team the lead before Dujaun Wilson headed home a cross late in the second half to seal the victory.
