SSFL 18: Saturday fixtures postponed; only St Benedict’s/Bishops to play due to flooding

This afternoon’s top of the table clash between Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premier Division leaders Presentation College (San Fernando) and second placed San Juan North Secondary has been postponed along with all other SSFL weekend fixtures, due to “inclement weather and field conditions.”

The announcement was issued via press release this morning by the SSFL. The TT Pro League’s weekend fixtures were also postponed.

However, there will be Premier Division action in Plymouth as St Benedict’s College managed to catch a flight to Tobago yesterday evening. St Benedict’s, who are ninth, play away to table proppers, Bishop’s High School, from 3:45pm.

The newly promoted Bishop’s are four points adrift at the bottom of Premier Division and, with four match remaining, can be relegated by next weekend if they cannot pick up a few wins. St Benedict’s, on the other hand, can climb to as high as fourth on the 15-team standings with a handsome win today.

The SSFL executive has not set a date yet for the postponed weekend fixtures.

On Monday, Queen’s Royal College play away to Trinity College (Moka) from 3:45pm in another rescheduled clash.

QRC were edged 1-0 by San Juan North in midweek but were unbeaten in their last four previous fixtures. Still, they are just three points clear of the relegation zone at present—with East Mucurapo Secondary, Fatima College and Valencia Secondary over their shoulders.

Trinity (Moka) are unbeaten in their last two outings and can climb above namesakes, Trinity College East, to fourth place with a win on Monday.
