Defending champions Carib Cement will meet Jamaica Customs in the final of the 2017 Scotiabank-sponsored Kingston and St Andrew Business House Football Association knockout competition today at the Alpha Boys Home (South Camp Road).

Match time is 3:30 pm.

Both teams had to fight hard to reach the final with Carib Cement defeating Division Two team NCB 2-1 in their semi-final. Twain Winter gave Carib Cement the lead in the ninth minute and Kemar Golding equalised for NCB in the 51st minute. They got the winning goal in the 90th+2 minute, when an unmarked Kirk Hibbert headed a corner kick past goalkeeper Bryan Mighten.

Jamaica Customs clipped former champions Petrojam 1-0 in a closely contested match. Goalkeeper Rashaun Patterson was the hero for Jamaica Customs, as he not only saved a penalty kick from Rennae Lloyd, but he also denied Fabian Reid, Leon Strickland and Atapharoy Bygrave from scoring. Akino Bailey got the winner in the 85th minute for Jamaica Customs.

Former national player Paul Laidley is the coach of Carib Cement and he will be looking to goalkeeper Mark Bryan, along with Ricardo Scott, Keno Ross, Ewan Murphy, Jerry Walters, brothers Shamario and Andrew Campbell, Damian Benjamin, Stephano Palmer, Richard Orrett and the prolific Elton Tucker for their second straight knockout title.

Coaches Everald Campbell and Craig 'Warlord' White are confident that Jamaica Customs will win this match. They will be looking to captain Rashedee Clarke, as well as Lennox Russell, Akino Bailey, goalkeeper Rashaun Patterson, Akeem Brown, Oniel Collard, Cadine Graham, Richardo Henry and Conroy Johnson to lead them to victory.
