MANDEVILLE, Manchester — The Moorland Development/Pat Anderson Manchester Under-17 football competition moves into the semi-final stage this weekend, with a double-header set for the Kirkvine Sports Club tomorrow.

In the first game at 2:00 pm, Porus FC will oppose Villa United, while at 3:30 pm, Comfort will face Christiana Academy in the feature encounter.

Porus, being the only unbeaten team in the competition, could be considered the favourites against Villa United, who earned one point less than their opponents -- despite finishing three places below them

in fourth.

Christiana and Comfort head into the semis with almost identical records of four wins and a loss in five games. The sides are only separated by goal difference, with Christiana scoring two more goals than Comfort's 11.

Meanwhile, today, the CAN Care Pharmacy Under-15 competition will continue with a one-day festival, also at the Kirkvine Sports Club.

At 12:30 pm, leaders 360° Academy will look to preserve their one-point advantage when they tackle lowly Blue Mountain, while third-placed Downs -- hoping to leapfrog the idled Alligator Pond in second place -- will go up against New Green in the opening match at 12:15.

In the other match-ups, Comfort play Kendal at 12:15, Ricam Academy take on Hillstars at 12:30, while in the late kick-offs at 4:00, Greenvale United meet Land Settlement and Villa United oppose Manchester Academy.
