At 2:00 pm, daCosta Cup schoolboy outfits St Elizabeth Technical and Titchfield High square off, while in the second match of the double-header, St George's College go up against the Jamaica Under-17 male team at 4 o' clock.
Tomorrow, Titchfield oppose the national youth team at 2:00 pm, while in the late afternoon encounter, St George's entertain St Elizabeth Technical.
The match-ups were determined by a draw which was completed on Thursday.
