ExxonMobil U14 Round of 16 on today

Excitement in the ExxonMobil Boys’ and Girls Under-14 school football tournament will heat up today as the tournament heads into the knockout rounds.
Today’s Round of 16 is scheduled to begin at 10:00h at the Ministry of Education (MoE) Ground, Carifesta Avenue, where teams will need to win to stay alive in the competition.
The U14 football action begins with a fixture in the Girls’ Division, as Bartica Secondary and Abram Zuil Secondary go head-to-head at 10:00h. simultaneously, Bartica’s boys and St John’s College boys will lock horns.
Thirty-two games are on the cards for the MoE today.
Thus far, the Girls’ defending champions Waramuri Primary Top have been superb; however, their regional counterparts Santa Rosa Secondary girls have been a force to reckon with. Last year’s second- and third-place in additional to other school, President’s College, Bartica Secondary and Three Miles Secondary have all been good thus far, making for an interesting upcoming knockout round.
