Brown's Town hunt win to seal mid-season final spot

Brown's Town need a win against Seaview Gardens today to qualify for the mid-season final in the Charley's JB Rum/Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Super League.

Both teams will meet in the opening game of a double header at Constant Spring Complex today, starting at 6 p.m.

In the second of the double-header, Real Mona face Maverley/Hughenden, starting at 8 p.m.

The first game is of high interest as Zone B leaders Brown's Town will be in the hunt for maximum three points to advance to next Friday's mid-season final where they will face Maverley/Hughenden.

Brown's Town lead the zone with 13 points. They are followed by Rae Town (8) and Santos (7).

The east Kingston-based Brown's Town are in pole position. They could lose against Seaview and still contest the final. Rae Town's game against Maverley/Hughenden ended prematurely last week after a stabbing incident with the teams locked at 1-1. KSAFA are yet to issue a ruling on that match.

Santos could move onto the final if they win their two remaining games but other results go their way.

The Browns Town camp are in a positive mood ahead of tonight's game.

"We will be very serious about this game as we want to be in the final," coach of Brown's Town, Karumie Huie, told The Gleaner yesterday.

"The team started the season slowly by losing the first two league games, but has not lost since, having won four and drawn once in the last five games. We want to continue on that platform," he said.

In the late game, Maverley/

Hughenden will look to preserve their winning streak in Zone A. The Maverley/Hughenden team, under the guidance of coach Lijasu Simms, has won six games in a row to be on maximum 19 points. They are seven points clear of second placed Barbican with a game to be played in the first round.
