MONTEGO BAY, St James — Unbeaten Holland High will be seeking to avenge last year's upset loss to defending champions Mt Alvernia High when they clash in today's final of the ISSA Western Conference girls Open basketball competition at the Montego Bay Cricket Club starting at 3:30 pm.

It is an identical situation to last year's decider when the Montego Bay school upset the previously unbeaten Holland High 31-28 in the final, but the Trelawny school will seek to atone today and lift their first title.

In the first game set to start at 1:30 pm, Montego Bay High School and Muschett High will meet in the third- place play-off.

Holland High topped the points table with 16 points after a 40-12 margin over Muschett High in a rescheduled game on Monday, their second lopsided win over their Trelawny neighbours after beating them 57-4 last Tuesday in Montego Bay.

Zhane Lawrence scored 12 points on Monday for Holland High in their win, while Shenniel Johnson scored eight.

Holland United have been the best team all season and after two lopsided wins over Mt Alvernia High, 50-15 and 40-12, are expected to win the title for the first time, but cannot be complacent after last year's upset loss.

Mt Alvernia's Tiana Wilson, who led her school to the victory last year, will lead her school today, but Lawrence and Johnson have been prolific all year and could make the difference today.
