Shiva Boys and Fyzabad will square off in a top-of-the-table contest today at Penal, in Round Three of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premier Division.
Both Shiva Boys and Fyzabad have 100-percent records after two games, but Shiva Boys, the 2016 Premier Division winners, sit atop the standings by virtue of a superior goal difference of plus-six, compared to Fyzabad’s plus-three.
Shiva Boys, second-placed Carapichaima and Fyzabad are the three teams this season who are yet to drop a point.
Carapichaima will be on the road today, as they head to Trincity to meet 13th-placed Trinity East.
St Mary’s, who started their season with a 3-3 draw away to San Juan North last Wednesday, will have a tough challenge on their hands when they head to Guaracara Park in Pointe-a-Pierre to face fourth-placed Presentation San Fernando. Ryan Shim, coach of St Mary’s, noted in an interview on Wednesday that a few of his players are still battling injuries but is hopeful to have a fully-fit squad for today’s game. “We’ll use a lot of ice baths and hot-and-cold therapy, and get them ready for Saturday because we have Pres,” he said.
San Juan North will head to the capital city to face QRC, at the QRC Ground, while St Benedict’s will seek to get off the foot of the table when they visit St Augustine.
St Benedict’s, Fatima and Trinity Moka are the three teams who are yet to earn a point in the 2017 campaign. Fatima will entertain Naparima and Trinity Moka will host Speyside. The day’s other fixture will be staged in the sister isle, with Signal Hill carded to face St Anthony’s. All matches will kick off at 3.40 pm.
