Over in Group ‘E’, Tivoli Gardens play Bridgeport at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex; Jose Marti meet St Andrew College and Ardenne take on Jamaica College.

The other matches are – Campion hosting Meadowbrook, St Mary’s College entertaining, while Innswood and Trench Town face off at Chedwin Park in St Catherine.
