St Catherine High will host Calabar High in a top-of-the-table clash in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association/

Grace Shield cricket competition at St Catherine High today.

Both teams are unbeaten after three wins apiece in Zone A. A win for either will determine a place in the next round.

Wayne Morgan, coach of St Catherine High, is extremely confident his team will win the clash easily.

"One team will remain unbeaten at the end of the game. If all things stay equal, weather permitting, St Catherine will be on four wins," Morgan confidently told The Gleaner yesterday.

"I'm pretty confident that the team will win this game. I feel we will have an easy win, as we have a good all-round team," he added.

St Catherine's top players include Jamaine Spencer, Krichon Givon, Nichoy Roberts, captain Keniel Holness, George Smith and Aldean Mundley.

On the other hand, the coach of Calabar, Patrick Williams, said his team is also looking to win the competition.

"We are hoping to win against a strong St Catherine team and move forward to the next round. We have a team that can win the title," Williams said.

Calabar will rely on national Under-15 players Brian Brown and Shemar Davis, as well as all-rounder Mario Lobban.
