The opening day of the 2014 Sprite Ball Championship is shaping up nicely with some shocking results at the El-Wak and Aviation Social Centre in Accra respectively.

Keta Senior High dazzled their way to the knockout phase in a group which comprised of Prempeh College, Adisadel College and Ghana Lebanon and Islamic School.

The Volta regional powerhouse won all their group games with Adisadel joining them after seeing off Ghana Lebanon and Islamic School in group A.

In group B Koforidua Secondary Technical School underlined their title credentials with wins over West African Senior High, Opoku Ware and Mawuli Senior High to make it into the last eight.

Kumasi giants Opoku joined them as the first runner up in the group as Mawuli and West African Senior High are booted out.

In-form Presbyterian Boys Senior High cut their opponent into sizes to make it three out of three to qualify to the knockout phase of the competition.

The Legon-based side beat Akwamuman 35-30 in a closely contest final group game to qualify to the next phase of the competition to be held at the El-Wak stadium on Saturday January 11.

Both sides had won their previous two games against Kumasi Anglican and Ghana Secondary Technical School and went into the cliff hanger full of confidence.

But once again the Royal Blues showed why they have penciled down by bookmakers as one of the sides likely to win the title.

Presec won the title in 2007 but have since flattered to deceive with performances that left much to be desired.

But their display in 2014 has surprised many and looks like a side that will be difficult nut to crack.

Defending champions Mfantsipim had to wait a little longer to find out if they had qualified after losing to St John’s in the second group game.

But they finally scrapped through alongside St Augustines.
