Islamic will be hoping to make history as they bid to win their first ever trophy in soccer since the establishment of the school while former Champions Kumasi Anglican Senior High will be hoping to reclaim a trophy they last won almost a decade ago. For both schools, a win will be a priceless commodity as they seek to write their names in gold in the anals of their schools in terms of achievement in sports.
KASS are high flying and seemed to have picked up momentum as the tournament progresses having survived elimination scare at the hands of Adu Gyamfi SHS. They dispatched Amass with such cheeky ease least expected of them and will fancy their chances against Islamic side that doesn’t play particularly well but manages to squeeze out results.
KASS boasts of individual quality backed by teamwork while Islamic lacks cohesion in thier team but grinds out results and defends pretty well.
On the balance of the performance of each team as exhibited in the previous matches and based on the oppositions these sides encounter enroute to the final, one is tempted to tip KASS to win the trophy but don’t rule out a surprise form Historic Islamic SHS who have exceeded expectations so far having found their way back into competition courtesy a protest against Akrofuom SHS.

In the 3rd and 4th curtain raiser, Opoku Ware will take on T. I. Amass to see who will pick the 3rd slot and it will be an engaging game if the two sides can put thier disappointment behind them and fight it all out to save face.
