Unbeaten Panatina Community High School team is the pre-match favourite to win the qualifying competition and earn the right to represent Honiara.

Its squad was bolstered with the return of young sensational striker Bentley Nalagu who was away with his Marist FC in Auckland when the school competition started.At the center, former national Under 17 striker Judd Molea played a key role in setting up scoring opportunities but it was apparent that finishing was a problem until Nalagu arrived.

They also have the services of Uncles left defender John Inito, Hardis Aengari (Junior Flamingo FC) and former U17 goalkeeper Leon Lekezoto.
