MONTEGO BAY, St James - Granville United will join Montego Bay United as the teams from St James in next season's JFF Flow Champions Cup Knockout competition after qualifying for the final of the St James Football Association/Captain's Bakery and Grill Knockout with a 3-1 win over Norwood Strikers at the UDC Field.

With defending champions Montego Bay United already assured of a place in the Flow competition by virtue of their Premier League status, the next best team in the St James competition will also take part.

In the final, Granville will try to deny Montego Bay United a second straight title as the Premier League team ended the good run of promoted St James FA Senior League club Lilliput Rovers 2-0.

In the previous round, Lilliput Rovers, who had beaten Montego Bay United in the first round two seasons ago, had eliminated Western Confederation Super League team Wadadah FC on penalty kicks.

On Tuesday, Kemiro James scored twice in the first half, in the 10th and 44th minutes, as Montego Bay United cruised past Lilliput Rovers at WespoW Park.

At the UDC field, Granville United, who are preparing for the first-leg semi-finals of the Western Confederation Super League, dismissed relegated Norwood Strikers 3-1.
