The most thrilling period of the annual Secondary Schools Football League commences today with first round matches in the Coca-Cola Intercol competition at venues throughout Trinidad and Tobago.

The knockout phase of the tournament holds centre stage and the "must win" attitude once again comes into the fray as eight teams go at each other.

Defending champions St Anthony's College step right into proceedings against St Augustine at St Mary's College ground, Serpentine Road starting at 3.30pm.

This promises to be a closely contested affair as both teams have struggled to get their rhythm going and it is left to be seen whether the title holders have held back their killer instinct for the therners may just have the "never say die" line in their minds today.

Across in Tobago, the lone encounter will involve Scarborough Secondary against Bishops at Signal Hill ground at 4.00pm.

At the launching of the Coca-Cola knockout phase at the Shay Shay Tien Restaurant at Cipriani Boulevard yesterday, it was announced by Coca-Cola Caribbean Bottlers' representative Camille Richards-Chatoor that they will be sponsoring the tournament to the tune of $120,000.

Richards-Chatoor mentioned that the sponsors, who have been doing the job for the past 17 years, think it is an excellent opportunity to promote the development of youth and football in the country.
