  • CedarBridge take on Saltus during last year's BSSF Senior School Boys' semi-finals

Twenty three matches will be played at the North Field and BFA Field tomorrow and Saturday to determine the schools knockout champions in nine different divisions.

All finals will be held at the North Fields starting at 11am on Saturday with the Primary Schools’ Division Two and Primary School Girls’ finals. Admission to all the matches are free.

The nightcap on Saturday will pit two-times defending champions Berkeley Institute against CedarBridge Academy in the Senior School Boys’ final at 6pm.

CedarBridge had a difficult time in defeating Bermuda Institute 2-1 in their semi-final on Wednesday where North Village forward Zinake Hendrickson scored both goals for CedarBridge, while Tristan Davis scored the consolation goal for Bermuda Institute.

Tafari Swan scored twice to lead Berkeley to a 3-0 win over Saltus Grammar School. Zaire Smith completed the scoring for the winners.

Saltus are also looking to win their third consecutive knockout final over Berkeley Institute in the Senior Girls’ final on Saturday at 4.15pm. Saltus brushed aside Warwick Academy 5-0 to reach the final. Noah Autmezuine scored twice for the Knights who got goals from Za’Kayza Parsons, Emily Hartwig and Emily Cabral.

Berkeley also had no problems in their semi-final, after handing CedarBridge Academy a 9-1 loss.
