Montego Bay United were drawn to play Waterhouse and Arnett Gardens will face Boys' Town next Thursday during the draw for second-round matches in the 2014 Flow Champions Cup held at the headquarters of the Jamaica Football Federation in New Kingston on Friday.
The second round will feature the top-six Premier League teams from the 2013-2014 Premier League season following the first round of matches that concluded on Friday with Barbican playing Cavalier at the UWI, Mona Bowl.
Barbican won 3-2 in extra time and will play former Premier League team Portmore United on Wednesday, October 8, the same day Granville FC will take on Sporting Central FC.
In the other half of the draw, Reno will take on Rivoli on Thursday, while Seaforth FC will play Highgate FC Wednesday. In another Premier League matchup, Humble Lion will tackle Harbour View while free-scoring Black Stars FC will go up against Tivoli Gardens. Both games will be played on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Andrew Price the technical director at Boys' Town, feels his team's matchup against Arnett should be special. "It's the rumble in the jungle. Both teams know each other very well. They have played each other several times over the years. A lot of the players have played for both clubs so there is a consistency and knowledge of each other, so it should be another good matchup again."
Clyde Jureidini of Harbour View said his team would not be taking Humble Lion lightly.
"There are a lot of Premier League teams at this stage of the competition so Humble Lion is a good quality team," he said. "The new squad is trying to find its footing so it will be a good test for us and for Humble Lion so it will be an exciting match up."
Black Star enter the second round of the competition being the first winners of the Goals for Charity Initiative in which the team that scores the most goals in each round will see Flow donate $50,000 to a social project in their community.
