Two-time champions Dinthill Technical will lead six schools seeking to defend perfect records as the ISSA/WATA daCosta Cup football competition continues today with 25 games across 11 of the 15 zones.

Included in today's fixtures will be a number of games that have been rescheduled as well as return-round games in at least four zones.

Dinthill who are going after a sixth-straight win in Zone K; Manning's School and Petersfield High in Zone D; St Elizabeth Technical High (STETHS) in Zone E are all playing return games and will be seeking to repeat victories from the first clashes with their opponents.

Dinthill look for a place in the second round when they host winless Ewarton High who they had beaten 3-1 in their first meeting.

The two-time champions lead all teams with 23 goals scored and faces a team that has conceded 14 goals in their five games.

Manning's School and STETHS are both going for win number five and will start favourites to extend their good starts.

Manning's School, last season's runners-up, had scored five goals in the second half of their game against Grange Hill High and after three more games where they have since scored another 11 goals and conceded just one, the Everton Tomlinson-coached team could rack up yet another big score.

Despite not scoring lopsided victories, STETHS has done enough to win their games and are yet to concede a goal after four wins, one of which was against today's opponents, Lacovia High.
