A com­mand­ing per­for­mance from Bish­op Anstey High School East led by Lil­lian Selvon, helped the school qual­i­fy for the Girls Cham­pi­onship Di­vi­sion "Big Five" com­pe­ti­tion in the Shell/First Cit­i­zens Sec­ondary Schools Foot­ball League.

To­day, the East Zone cham­pi­on will be look­ing to keep that mo­men­tum when it faces To­ba­go cham­pi­on Sig­nal Hill, who will have home ad­van­tage in the semi­fi­nal match set to kick off at 3 pm.

On Thurs­day, three goals from Selvon saw Bish­op East to a com­fort­able 7-0 win over hosts St Au­gus­tine on Thurs­day evening to be crowned the zon­al cham­pi­on earn­ing them the right to play in the "Big Five".

Her team­mates Christi Ann Woods and Tyan­na Williams each added a pair of goals in the lop­sided af­fair that pushed Bish­op East to the head of the ta­ble with 25 points from 10 match­es from eight wins and two loss­es. The same as new­com­er Five Rivers Sec­ondary, who held the top po­si­tion for much of the sea­son but slipped to the sec­ond spot as Bish­op East had a bet­ter goal dif­fer­ence, plus-37 com­pared to it's plus-32.

Sig­nal Hill booked its spot af­ter a 3-0 win over Spey­side High on that evening. Ce­line Lo­raine came good once more for Sig­nal Hill with a dou­ble while her team­mate Dil­lea­sia Nichol­son net­ted the oth­er.

In the lone quar­ter-fi­nal match on Thurs­day af­ter­noon, North win­ner Bish­op Anstey Port-of-Spain was beat­en by Cen­tral cham­pi­on Cara­pichaima East, 4-2.

Cara­pichaima now moves on to play South win­ner Pleas­antville Sec­ondary in the semi­fi­nal round to­day at the Man­nie Ramjohn Sta­di­um in Mara­bel­la from 3 pm.
