FRESH from their upset 1-0 win over St James High on Saturday, Maldon High will face former champions Cornwall College in a Zone A ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup game at Jarrett Park this afternoon.

Maldon High's upset of the former champions has left all four teams in Zone A tied on three points from two games. Today, Green Pond, who beat Maldon and lost to Cornwall College, will host St James High in Green Pond.

Ten matches are scheduled to be played today including Zone M leaders Glenmuir High against Foga Road and Garvey Maceo High taking on Bustamante.

Bog Walk who had their 100 percent record snapped when they were held 0-0 by Dinthill on Saturday could take over the sole leadership in Zone K when they face Tacky while Sav-la-Mar neighbours Godfrey Stewart High and Mannings School will meet in a Zone D game.

Petersfield could take over the lead, however, when they host winless Little London.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
