The big 8 turn up the heat
The sweet 16 is in the books.
Now it’s time to write the script for the Elite Eight.
Defending champs The City, fellow tournament favourites Christ Church West Central and crowd darlings St Andrew highlight a star-studded field of eight set to take the field this weekend for the highly-anticipated David Thompson Memorial Constituency Councils Football Classic’s quarter-finals.
The three maintained their elite status – and the league’s only unbeaten records – with contrasting wins over St James South, St James North and St Lucy, respectively, over the weekend.
The City, led by national captain Jeffrey Williams and striker Dwayne Mars, will have their sights on a solid if not spectacular St James Central side.
Christ Church West Central, coached by Julian Mottley, are slated to play St Philip West with an eye to set up an eventual dream final against The City but St Andrew might have something to say about that if they down a highly-touted St Michael North squad.
Christ Church East Central and St Michael South Central have been drawn in a match-up of two under-the-radar teams that have little expectations surrounding them but could still manage to upset the apple cart. (JM)
