After several postponements due to inclement weather over the past few days, the ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup competition resumes today with the playing of nine matches at various venues.

Two very interesting Group E games are down for the Stadium East Field starting with Camperdown High going up against Hydel High at 1 pm, followed by a top-of-the-table clash between Wolmer's Boys' and Mona High at 3:10 pm.

After a faltering start to their campaign, Camperdown began their repair job last time out with a 7-0 thumping of Kingston High but will face a more difficult opponent in Hydel this afternoon.

A win for Camperdown, who are on four points, will see them leapfrog Hydel, who are on six points, into third place in the group while a win for Hydel will see them extend the gap between the two to five points. They both have much to fight for.

In the feature game, the two teams will put their unbeaten runs on the line. Wolmer's and Mona have both won their four games and a fifth win on the trot will make either of them outright leaders of the group, now led by Mona on goal difference.

The other game in the group is between cellar-dwellers Kingston High and Papine High at Breezy Castle at 3:30 pm. Kingston High have yet to register a point while Papine have just one.
