THE DECISIVE second leg Sherwin Williams/Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Women's football league final takes centre stage today at Constant Spring playfield.
In the 3:00 p.m. contest for which the winner earns $120,000 cash prize and a trophy, defending champions Barbican and Harbour View will continue from last week's 1-1 draw at the same venue.
Although the second-place team is set to take home $80,000, none of the teams would want to leave Constant Spring this afternoon without the Sherwin Williams Trophy and the bragging rights of being Jamaica best women's football team.
In last Saturday's first-leg final Harbour View's Marvette Francis became the first player to score on Barbican's Nikkesha Thomas this season.
Harbour View's coach Vin Blaine said he hopes last week's game has taken away the butterflies away from his players who have what it takes to beat Barbican, especially being the first team to score on them in this league this season.
"If they understand what happened, they would realise they had Barbican on the backfoot all day (last week)."
Barbican's coach, Charles Edwards, who promised he would go back to the drawing board for today's game, expects a much improved
"We will be coming to play them as hard as we can, even better than last week," Edwards promised.
For today's game, Jodi-Ann McGregor, Alverine Hamilton, Nicole Bell, Samya Lewis, Julie Fearon, Nadolo Chase, Petrone Ricketts and national goalkeeper Thomas will lead Barbican's charge.
Margaret Francis, Shakera Duncan, Kimmia Parker, Tanesia Vassell, KimCay Brown, Kerry-Ann Edwards and Andrea Duffus should carry the fight for Harbour View.
