Henkel Schools Badminton League Campion Holy Childhood emerge impressive winners rated as the hot favour- ites for the Major League will seek their fifth consecutive win against Harbour View hi the feature game at 7.30 as the KSAFA semi- final round continues at the Nation- al Stadium. Boys' second placed in Group will take on Duhaney Park in the opening game starting at 5.30. Although Cavalier are going quite well and the only unbeaten team in the competition to date they are still expected to have another tough task against Harbour View who are improv- ing with each game. When both teams met in the first encounter Cavalier came out 2-1 and no doubt Harbour View will be trying to avenge this defeat. The encounter promises to be anoth- er evenly contested game with-dangerous counter-attacks. For Harbour View to turn the tables they will have to keep a dose watch throughout the match on Clarence Prendes who has been scoring the vital winning goals for Cavalier. Apart from the promising Peter Duggan on the left wing must also be taken into consideration as he has the ability to set up goal-scoring movements and also to score goals. A victory for Harbour View rests on their shooting abilities and Mark Owen Lester Francis and Wainsworth Davis need to be on tar- as defenders William and David Bernard will be a tough duo to get around if Harbour- View intend to test goalkeeper Carlton Williams. The first game between Boys' Town and Duhaney Park should see another evenly contested match with the odd goal deciding the winners. Boys's Town came out 1-0 winners in the first meeting. on Tuesday defending champions Santos defeated Brown's Town S-0.
