Defending champions Kingston College will face-off against Jamaica College in the final of the ISSA/WATA Under-14 (Pepsi) football finals on Wednesday December 3rd at the Constant Spring Field at 1:00pm. This after both schools registered identical 2-0 wins over Dunoon Technical and Ardenne High in their semi-finals on Thursday at the same venue.

In the semi-finals, champions Kingston College had to work hard to get the better of Dunoon and owed their place in the finals to strikes from Michael Allen and Tristan Graham. Despite dominating possession in the first half, KC did not get on the score sheet until the final minute of the half when Allen prodded home a right sided cross at the back post.

The second half was a slightly more even affair as Dunoon took advantage of going downhill to create a few goal scoring opportunities. They were unable to find an equalizer and the ‘Purples’ made the game safe when second half substitute Tristan Graham got the second goal for the Raymond Watson coached KC team, midway the half.

The second semi-final between JC and Ardenne was a virtual mirror image of the first. JC dominated the first half going downhill and got the opener on the stroke of half time.

Ardenne came out of their shell in the second half but produced very little in attack. JC ended the game as a contest when Okeele Cunningham fired home a penalty to make it 2-0 to the Old Hope Road based school.
The final is expected to be an absorbing contest between two evenly matched teams.
