Excelsior will play for their eighth ISSA Walker Cup title after defeating Camperdown High 4-3 in their semi final game today at Stadium East.

In a game that saw four lead changes, it was the team from Mountain View that had the final say, thanks to Daniel Clarke's 85th minute winner.

Three goals were scored in a five-minute span as Excelsior took the lead in the 15th minute through Rojaughn Joseph, before Camperdown captain Giovanni Laing equalised from the penalty spot in the 17th minute. Just three minutes later, Junior Parker restored the lead for Excelsior but Camperdown restored parity again in the 37th minute through Shawn Daley.

Camperdown took the lead for the first time in the game through Tivelle Edwards in the 63rd minute, but Excelsior's Jhevan Smith levelled the game once more seven minutes later.

Excelsior will play St Catherine High in the final next Friday at the National Stadium.
