Five-time champions St Elizabeth Technical High (STETHS) will lead 11 schools who will be seeking to maintain perfect win records when the ISSA/WATA daCosta Cup football competition continues today with 16 games.

STETHS and Manning's School, last season's beaten finalists, will be hoping to extend their winning runs to four straight; former champions Rusea's High, Ben Francis Cup holders Edwin Allen High, Petersfield High and Manchester High will be seeking a third-straight win; while Clarendon College, Frome Technical, Green Island High, William Knibb Memorial and Cedric Titus High will hope for back-to-back victories.

Included in the schedule is Manchester High against Belair High in Zone F with both schools putting their unbeaten records on the table but a fixture that Manchester High has dominated through the years.

STETHS will start favourites against BB Coke High who are coming off a 3-1 win over Sydney Pagon STEM in a rescheduled game on Monday, their first win of the season from three games.

STETHS are yet to concede a goal in their three wins and Dantay Campbell will be hoping to add to his goals tally.

Manning's School have run roughshod over their opponents so far and Coach Everton Tomlinson could be tempted to rest his regular starters against a Belmont Academy team that won for the first time on the weekend but, based on results so far, are not expected to mount much of a challenge.

Jhamaleek Porter leads the scoring in the daCosta Cup so far with seven and could boost that figure even more today.
