Defending champions Eurotrend will be looking to create history in the 2016 Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce six-a-side football competition by becoming the first team to win the title twice when they oppose Ashoka in tomorrow's final at 451 Spanish Town Road (Waterhouse) opposite Wray & Nephew starting at 4.00 p.m.

Eurotrend defeated 2015 beaten finalists Miles 2-1 on the back of a double strike from Kevin Romans, with Jermaine Gardener scoring for Miles in semi-final two.

Ashoka, meanwhile, clipped Henley 5-4 on penalties after the scores were locked 0-0 in regulation and extra time.

The winner of today's final will receive $150,000. Incidentally, host Fraser-Pryce actually grew up on Ashoka Road in the Waterhouse community.


Third-place play-off


At 3 p.m., Miles and Henley will meet in the third-place play-off. The day's activity will start at 2:30 p.m. when the under-15 youth teams of Ashoka and Miles will meet in a junior talent exposure game.

Andre Hickling of Miles, Gavin McKay of Malhatra and Akeem Peterson of Youths United are the competition's leading scorers with three goals each.
