National representative Davia Richards scored four goals to lead defending champions Excelsior High to a crushing 8-0 win over Greater Portmore in their Group I encounter in the second round of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/Locker Room High Schoolgirls football competition at Excelsior High School playing sfield on Monday.

Richards netted in the 50th, 55th, 57th and 58th minutes, with other strikes from Chrissann Roberts (13th minute), Tarania Clarke (19th minute), national representative Nevillegail Able (70th minute) and Chavelle Henry (73rd minute) completing the demolition job.

With the win, Excelsior finished second place on six points behind winners Lennon High (nine points), who dismantled Montego Bay High 11-0 at home, also on Monday.

Excelsior also got all three points from Montego Bay as the latter opted not to honour their rescheduled fixture.

Excelsior have now advanced to today's semi-final in which they will face Lennon High at the Spanish Town Prison Oval starting at 3:00 pm.

The first semi-final game of the double-header will be contested by St Jago High and Dehanham Town.

St Jago, for their part, capped off their second-round Group G match with a 10-0 battering of Camperdown, while Denham Town blanked Ardenne High 2-0 in their Group H final round encounter.
