Chase’s Foundation poised to be crowned Limacol Champions
…As final round is contested today
The curtains will come down on this year’s edition of the Limacol Schools’ Football League today, when the final three games are contested at the Ministry of Education (MoE) Ground on Carifesta Avenue in Georgetown.
As it stands, Chase’s Academic Foundation, out of Georgetown, are poised to take home the coveted title; while the likes of Carmel Secondary and Bartica Secondary are close to qualifying for the KFC International Goodwill Series coming up next month.
Bartica Secondary will, from 13:00hrs, embark on a must-win encounter with Ann’s Grove Secondary if they are to secure a position in next month’s KFC-sponsored tournament. They currently sit on 12 points, with Santa Rosa Secondary close behind on 10.
Mackenzie High School will do battle with Christianburg Wismar Secondary in a highly anticipated all-Linden clash from 15:00hrs.
The final game, scheduled for kickoff at 17:00hrs, will see table leaders Chase’s Academy going head-to-head with Santa Rosa Secondary. As obtains in the case with Bartica, if Santa Rosa are to qualify for next month’s international tournament, they will need a victory over Chase, with equal hopes that Bartica miss out on points.
Chase’s Academy are, however, unbothered. With 16 points heading into the 7th round, even if they come out on the losing side, Chase are likely to surpass second place team Carmel Secondary (with 13 points heading into round 7) on account of goal difference.
Further down the table, Mackenzie High complete the top 5 with 8 points from 6 Rounds.
The champions who will be crowned today would receive $300,000 for a school project, along with a trophy and medals. The second-place finisher will pocket $150,000 for the same school-project purpose, while the third- and fourth-placed teams would respectively receive $75,000 and $50,000 for the same purpose. Individual prizes would also be up for grabs.
