Opportunity knocks large this afternoon for both Naparima and St Anthony’s College in round nine of the Premier Division in the Secondary Schools Football League.

Naparima, defending champions and the current league leaders hold a three-point lead over St Anthony’s which they can extend to six if they beat their nearest challengers this afternoon on St Anthony’s Ground. The match is the headline fixture of the round pitting steady, settled “Naps” against a resurgent, reinforced “Tigers” team that appears to be making a sustained effort to snatch the title away.


Skipper Stafanie Taylor admitted there was some worry in the West Indies camp when her side lost three early wickets in pursuit of a modest 79 against Thailand, in their opening Group B match of the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup on Saturday.
