The Latest Challenge Cup News by Gord Dunphy

St. Lawrence Laurentians

Expect Darren Pike to be in the Laurentians line-up against the Feildians. Pike, originally had been suspended by the NLSA for three games which made him ineligible for the last two games of the season and for the opening game of the Provincial Challenge Cup Play-offs. The Laurentians appealed this decision and won the appeal. Pike's suspension was reduced to two games thus this makes him eligible for tonights game against the Feildians.

Holy Cross

Expect Jeremy Babstock, the heart and soul of the Holy Cross team, not to be in uniform tonight. Jeremy, is presently in training to become a RNC police officer and has his graduation exercises tonight and as a result - NO Jeremy against Mount Pearl. This certainly enhances Mount Pearl's chances of advancing to the semi-finals on Saturday.


Expect John Acreman to be suffering from a groin injury that he sustained in the Feildians 18 th game of the season. He immediately left the field and then sat out his teams next game.If Acreman's injury impairs his all -star form it will be a real long 90 minutes for his team.

Mount Pearl

Expect Chris White to start as striker with partner Justin Pickford now that Sean Drew is out for the rest of the season. Drew suffered a season ending head injury while playing in a game against Holy Cross on August 18 at King George "V" pitch.
