Super League team WASA FC advanced with a 2-1 win over Club Sando in the round of 16 and opponent OJ Soldado also advanced with a 2-0 win over CFA’s Harlem Strikers.
Defence Force coach Ross Russell revealed that his team will not be taking their opponent lightly: “I don’t take any team in this competition lightly may it be Caledonia or Scarborough, because Scarborough has reached this far.
I don’t think W Connection will take them any lightly as well. “We have met lower teams out of the pro league and we have struggled.
We played St Anthony’s in our first game and it ended up 3-2 so we don’t take any team lightly. We are going to prepare just like we prepared for any other team in the Pro league and we just going to get our job done.”
The quarter final will feature three Pro League contestants W Connection , Defense force and Caledonia AIA. Secondary School Football League Scarborough High which became the first Secondary Schools team to progress in the FA Trophy competition when they defeated fellow Tobago contenders 1976 Phoenix with a 3-1victory will travel across from the Sister Isle where they will face W Connection.
Defending Pro League Champions Defence Force will battle recently relegated National Super League team St Francois National which recorded the upset in the round of 16 with a 1-0 win over TT Pro League’s T&TEC.
