    Naparima College will go into today’s round of Secondary Schools Football League Premier Division games breathing a little easier after they dispatched main rivals St Anthony’s College on Wednesday at Lewis Street.

    Naparima College, starting the day three points ahead of St Anthony’s could have been in trouble at the top of the table but an enthralling 3-2 win for the defending champions meant they go into Saturday’s games with a bit of a buffer.

    The defending champions can’t rest on their laurels for too long though, as Presentation College, last year’s runners up have remained steady, earning a 3-1 win over St Augustine which keeps them in touch with Naparima.

    Presentation have now taken over second place from St Anthony’s, just four points adrift of the leaders and two points ahead of the team they leapfrogged.

    St Anthony’s are now fourth on 17 points while Carpichaima East Secondary are the new third-placed team, after a 4-2 away win over Speyside on Wednesday.

    In other games on Wednesday, Queen’s Royal College were big 4-1 winners over Trinity College East, while Malick Secondary abated the bleeding with a 1-1 draw against St Benedict’s High School. They still have not won a game in five rounds, however.

    St Mary’s College have not found a way to slow their slide though, as San Juan North Secondary handed them their hats in a 7-0 affair, while East Mucurapo Secondary are continuing to have a solid season, beating Pleasantville Secondary 3-0 to remain in fifth place on the tables.

    Today Malick Secondary take on East Mucurapo Secondary at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Speyside are at home to Naparima College, Presentation College go to Pleasantville, Carpichaima East host San Juan, St Mary’s College do the same against St Anthony’s College, while St Benedict’s visits St Augustine.
    In the only other game of the round, Queen’s Royal College play host to Trinity College Moka, while Trinity College East are the team on a bye.
