THE second round of the Flow Champions Cup Knockout competition continues today with four games, as the top-flight National Premier League high-flying teams make their bow into the 2013 event.
Defending National Premier League team Harbour View welcome Rivoli United to the Harbour View mini-stadium for a 7:00 pm kick-off; Tivoli Gardens entertain Boys' Town at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex at 5:30 pm, while Black Star visit Sporting Central Academy at Juici Patties Park in Clarendon, and Axum Sports Club are at home at Gray's Inn to Reggae Youths. Both games begin at 3:30 pm.
In first-round action last week, Black Stars hammered Logwood 7-0 with Davian Ash hitting the target in the 74th, 81st and 85th minutes to lead his team to victory, while Sporting Central Academy got the better of Jamalco 2-1 at Juici Patties Park.
Axum blanked Highgate United 2-0 at Gray's Inn, as Reggae Youth edged New Green 1-0 at Brooks Park.
Rivoli United, who visited Crocs Lawn and inflicted a 2-1 defeat on Sandals Whitehouse, will journey to the Harbour View compound hoping to repeat the dose of the 'Stars of the East', while in probably the most cruel draw, Tivoli Gardens and Boys' Town are pitted against each other.
The winners will advance to the quarter-finals.
