Manning’s, Holmwood seek semi-final spots in rural ISSA football
Manning’s School and Holmwood Technical will both be seeking spots in the semi-finals of the Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) Burger King Under-14 and Under-16 competitions as the quarter-finals come to an end on Monday.
Both schools have teams in the Under-14 and Under-16 quarter-finals which are wide open and the qualifiers will advance to the semi-finals scheduled for Friday. The finals of both competitions are set for December 12.
Rusea’s High are already through to the Under-14 semi-finals after winning their first two games in the Group A and will only need a point against Denbigh High at home to win the group.
Defending champions St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) and Green Island will battle out for the other spot. A draw would see STETHS, who are on three points, through to the next round.
Clarendon College lead Group B with four points. A draw against Holmwood, who are on two points, would be enough to get them through.
Manning’s, who are also on two points, are to face Glenmuir High (one point), in the first game of a double-header at Manning’s.
In the second game, which is an Under-16 quarter-final contest, the home team, which is on six points, will advance to the semi-finals with a draw against Kemps Hill High. The Kemps Hill team is in second with Manchester High, both on three points.
Manchester High need only a point against Maldon High, if Kemps Hill do not beat Manning’s. Maldon have lost both games played in the quarter-finals
In Group A, Petersfield High and Central High, both on three points, will meet in Petersfield, while Central High, who are on four points, will meet BB Coke High, who are on one point.
