SwaziBank Cup possiblities

So Swaziland has a national tournament called the SwaziBank Cup. All of the teams of hte 1st & 2nd division qualify and the top 2 teams in 3rd divison (Super League and my dividson) qualify.

The Black Terrors are currently in 4th Place. At the end of 12 games the top 2 teams with the most points qualify.

We currently have 22 Points are in 4th place with 2 games to play.

The first place team (which we beat) has 25 points and 1 game to play.
The 2nd place team (which we havea draw with) has 24 points with 2 games to play.
the 3rd place team has 23 points and we play them on Sunday.
The 5th place team (which we beat) has 20 point but 3 games to play.

So that means that this Sunday' game is a huge game the biggest of the season.

So I am coaching by butt off at practice and have the best attendence in a while since the players understand the importance.

Plus, I am running a try out to add more players on Saturday before the big game.

Soccer really has become the dominate thing that I think about pretty much all day long.

The excitement with the games just never seems to end.

EDIT-- I forgot to add on Saturday I am running a try out for the team to add more players since I don't have enough and there are 24 more games to go.
