Defending champions Lennon High will hunt their seventh title when they face Excelsior High in the Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association schoolgirls football final at the Spanish Town Prison today, starting at 3 p.m.

Denham Town High will play St Jago High in the third-place play-off at 1 p.m.

Lennon's coach, Sherlon Lennon, is oozing confidence ahead of the final.

"It's a very good feeling to reach the final. We played Excelsior last year in the final and beat them. We are looking forward to playing some good football and retaining the title," Lennon said.

Lennon will rely on Peta-Kay Green and Renae Gordon to achieve victory.

Excelsior will look to avenge their last year's 3-0 defeat.

"The Excelsior team has exceeded my expectations, so I am happy to be in the final," coach of Excelsior Xavier Gilbert said.

Excelsior will rely heavily on their national Under-17 trio of captain Tarania Clarke, Tateyana Pitter, and Chevelle Henry.
