With both squads having two completely different journeys to the final, both squads are linked by one common trait; they were both champions and will have the chance to be the only team in the short history of the Milo school tournament to win multiple titles.
Chase, the defending champs will have a chance to go for back-to-back titles and their dominant campaign thus far with their exclamation 6-nil win over South Ruimveldt in the semifinal suggest that they are the clear favourites.
Chase has displayed a great team chemistry throughout the tournament with no team being able to top the squad throughout the tournament.
Lodge on the other hand who has struggled and scratched their way to the final but will aim to do what no team has done so far in the tournament; defeat Chase Academy.
A feat once accomplished will earn them their second title in three years.
Their inability to score goals have been masked by their stellar defence that has gotten them to the game of games.
However, if they cannot score against Chase then they might just have to kiss their title hope goodbye.
The final will be the testing ground of two deserving finalists that carved their road to the championship game as they both can write their own bit of history in the Georgetown based tournament with the final set to begin from 18:00h.
Meanwhile the third place will also be played between South Ruimveldt and Queen’s College from 16:00h.
