In U14s, defending Calabar High faces the might of home team The Cedar Grove Academy at 2:30pm. In the semi-finals played last week Tuesday, Calabar defeated Old Harbour High 28-4, contrastingly; The Cedar Grove Academy defeated Spanish Town High 4-3 on kicks after a thrilling 12 all deadlock in regular and extra time.
In the U16 Grand Final, Calabar faces Spanish Town in what is a repeat of last year’s contestants. In the semi-finals played last week, Calabar put in a brave performance to hold off BB Coke High 8-0. Spanish Town needed overtime to squeeze past The Cedar Grove Academy 22-16.
Old Harbour will face Spanish Town at 12:30pm for Third-Place in the U14 category while BB Coke will challenge The Cedar Grove Academy at 1:30 in the U16 play-off.
Director of Rugby Romeo Monteith said:
“The Cedar Grove Academy have enjoyed a dream run in their first season of rugby league, they will be worthy opponents to Calabar who are two times defending champions in U14. Remarkably, Calabar have not conceded a single point in the competition, but Spanish Town has the goods to spring the upset.”
