POLICE SC VS AIR FORCE SC (03/08/2012) 

The Sri Lanka Police SC will take on the Sri Lanka Air Force SC this Friday at Police Park with kick off at 4.45 pm. The home side know they have big task ahead of them if they have any chances of qualifying for that one remaining spot of play in the cup competition. If they had beaten Army SC last week, it would have made the task much easier. They will go all out for a big win and surely their home fans will come in numbers to support them. For Air Force SC who registered their first victory against CH last week, they will be tested again. Their defence has been the weakest of all, conceding over 300 points.

CR & FC VS CH & FC (04/08/2012)

The Ceylonese Rugby & Football Club will be host to bottom place the CH & FC for the Nizar Haji Omar Memorial Trophy to be played this Saturday at Longdon Place. Kick off at 4.30 pm. Both teams have had a poor tournament so far, especially the CH who are yet to register a win in the tournament. CR started off well with two victories over Army SC & Air Force SC but since then has failed to secure any victory. They should end up on a winning note and hope for better result in round two for the plate.

UP COUNTRY LIONS VS HAVELOCKS SC (04/08/2012)

The Up Country Lions could make history when they host the Havelocks SC this Saturday at Nawalapitiya at 4.30pm as they need one point to qualify for the cup competition in their inaugural season. They will come up against a strong Havelocks team who went down fighting against the defending champs last week. Even with a loss, a losing bonus will be enough to secure them fourth place in the point table. This match be will an even contest but the Havies will have the extra bit to earn them a victory and keep their chances alive in the league.

NAVY SC VS KANDY SC MATCH OF THE WEEK (04/08/2012)

Defending champions and current table leader’s the Kandy SC are the only unbeaten team so far in the current league and will battle it out against the last year's league runners up the Sri Lanka Navy SC to be played this Saturday at Navy Grounds in Welisara; kick off at 4.30 pm. This contest could go all the way to the wire with both teams fairly equally matched. They will fight for supremacy and could end up with a nail biting finish. Navy SC have a good record at their home grounds and could have a silent edge over their opponents. It is a must win for the home team as they cannot slip away from the league. A win for Kandy SC will sure put them in pole position when round two commences.
