The two are set to go head-to-head on Sunday May 11 at Victoria Park in the final.

And, Barrouallie, who won back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013, have a score to settle with the Kingstowners. When both met in the second round of the championships, Central Kingstown came away winner one-nil.

But while Barrouallie is a regular participant in the finals, they have met different teams in their last three appearances.

In 2012, Barrouallie’s opponent in the final was archrival Layou and last year, South Leeward was the one to play second fiddle.

Central Kingstown, however, is the team in the ascendancy, as they erased a one-nil deficit in the first leg of the two-way tie, to oust Layou in the semi-finals.

Layou won game one, compliments a Dennis Prescott item, but Central Kingstown surged back in the second match to win two-nil. Romano Snagg and Shemmol Trimmingham provided the vital strikes for their berth in the final.

Layou, however, had themselves to blame, as Myron Samuel missed a penalty, after getting two attempts at converting.

In the other half of the semis, Barrouallie walked past West Kingstown, winning 5-1 on aggregate.

Kyle Edwards provided both goals in the first leg. He, Phillon Edwards and Chavel Cunningham netted in the second leg, as Barrouallie came away the 3-1 winner.

Curlon Joseph scored West Kingstown’s consolation goal.

Barrouallie will be looking for their second piece of national football silverware, having already procured the Under-18 title.

Also to be decided is the Under-13 competition, and for 2014, there will be a new champion. This, after Layou, who copped the title in 2012 and 2013, relinquished their title, leaving it to East Kingstown and West Kingstown to rumble to the top spot. (RT)
