The champions of the Magnum Eastern Confederation Super League will be decided on today (Sunday) when Mount Pleasant and Albion Mountain meet in the final at Drax Hall, St Ann at 3:00 pm.
It took a 5-4 aggregate win over St Georges for Albion to reach this stage of the competition, with Mount Pleasant making the final by defeating Priory Academy 2-0 on aggregate.
According to Albion Mountain’s coach, Lincoln Small, his St Mary outfit is looking to make their second time in the final count.
Small said, “This is our second time around in this final to go to the Premier League play-offs and we were first booted out by Priory. Now Priory is not there so it is Mount Pleasant, so we have to get by Mount Pleasant and win. We know they’re pumped up and we’re looking forward to it.”
Manager of Mount Pleasant, David Galloway, countered, “This is the game that will decide where we go from here. It is a game we need to win and must win. We not only will become the Confed Champion but will also be the team to represent the Confed in the Premier League playoffs.”
In their preliminary round cross-zone clash, both teams battled to a 1-1 draw and must separate themselves on Sunday (today) in the 90 minutes. Should they fail to do so, extra-time will be added, before penalties.
The winner will meet the other three Confederation champions in a round-robin playoff for the two spots in next season’s Red Stripe Premier League.
