St Anthony's College will attempt to narrow the gap with North Zone leaders Malick Senior Comprehensive with a victory over St Mary's College in a BWIA Secondary Schools Football League second round match at Serpentine Road today.

At present, the Westmoorings Tigers are second with 13 points and having battled to a 2-2 draw with the Saints in the opening round will want to keep the pressure on Malick who face a tricky Tranquillity Government at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Tranquil are coming off a 5-2 loss to St Anthony's and after being unbeaten for four matches before that, need a win to maintain their zonal title hopes. They currently have 13 points.

An improving Trinity College shouldn't be counted out for a win over Queen's Royal College when they clash at QRC grounds.

The Moka boys are coming off victories over St Anthony's and Fatima College while the Royalians have struggled with only two victories for the season.

After a promising start to their 1999 campaign, Fatima will hope to stop their recent slump with a win over defending North Zone champions Mucurapo SC.

Down South, leaders Naparima College should come away with a win over Presentation College, San Fernando but the Carib Street boys always put up a good fight when they come up against their long time rivals.

"Pres" are fourth with 11 points and have already produced a better showing than they had all of last season.

Second place St Benedict's allowed Naps to come away with a 2-1 win in their previous outing and have now slipped to six points behind.

They cannot afford anything less than a win when they travel to Pleasantville SC.

In other matches, P/Town are away to winless Fyzabad Composite at Apex Ground, and Moruga Composite are at home to Mayaro.

East/Central Zone leaders El Dorado host San Juan SC and Carapichaima entertain Barataria SC. St Augustine and Arima battled to a scoreless tie yesterday.

Tobago giants Signal Hill SC clash with Elizabeth's College at home and Bishop's High square off with Scarborough Secondary at Shaw Park.
