Mor­vant Cale­do­nia AIA will hope to take a gi­ant step to­wards claim­ing the $250,000 top prize in the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al Foot­ball Tour­na­ment Di­vi­sion One when they tack­le Cunu­pia FC at the Lar­ry Gomes Sta­di­um, Mal­abar from 3.30 pm on Sat­ur­day.

Cur­rent­ly, Mor­vant Cale­do­nia sits atop the 12-team ta­ble with max­i­mum 24 points from eight match­es, two ahead of idle De­fence Force who has played a match more fol­lowed by Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers, Cunu­pia FC and San Juan Jabloteh with 17, 16 and 16 points re­spec­tive­ly.

A win on Sat­ur­day for Mor­vant Cale­do­nia will put them five points clear and need­ing to win one of their two re­main­ing fix­tures against De­fence Force (Sep­tem­ber 18) and FC San­ta Rosa (Sep­tem­ber 22) to claim the win­ners' cheque.

How­ev­er, a vic­to­ry or draw re­sult for the "Stal­lions" will leave the door open for the stut­ter­ing De­fence Force and the oth­er hope­fuls of reel­ing in the ta­ble lead­ers.

Else­where, Rangers will be at home to Po­lice FC at Phase II, La Hor­quet­ta Recre­ation Ground, from 6 pm while Jabloteh en­ter­tains Guaya Unit­ed at San Juan North Sec­ondary Ground, Bourg Mu­la­tresse Ground, San Juan from 4 pm, and on Sun­day, Prison Ser­vice and Matu­ra Re­Unit­ed will clash at Youth Train­ing Cen­tre Ground, Arou­ca from 4pm as well.

The chase for the $100,000 win­ners prize in Di­vi­sion Two is al­so far from over with De­porti­vo P.F and San Fer­nan­do Gi­ants lead­ing the ta­ble with 22 points from nine match­es each, a mere point ahead of the Uni­ver­si­ty of T&T (UTT) while fourth-placed Po­lice FC has 18 points.

Al­so, Sat­ur­day, UTT will host Gi­ants at their UTT Cam­pus O'Meara Road, Ari­ma from 7 pm with the win­ners set to stake a fur­ther claim for the ti­tle while on Sun­day, De­porti­vo P.F faces Moru­ga FC at Ma­haica Oval, Pt Fortin from 5 pm, and Po­lice makes the jour­ney to To­ba­go to play Bethel Unit­ed at Mt Gomery Ground.
