Following their shock qualification from the pool stage, Aberdeen Technical School (ATS) have set their sights on reaching the final of the Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Division A inter-school football competition. ATS meet St Joseph's College in the first of two semi-finals at Happy Valley this afternoon. King George V School (KGV) take on last year's All-Hong Kong (Jing Ying) champions, West Island School, in the other match. 'We have played with a lot of confidence throughout the competition,' said ATS coach Ma Yu-hung. 'The team is very united.' Defending Division One champions La Salle College failed to make it past the group stage after ATS, promoted from Division Two last season, scored a surprise 2-1 victory over KGV. 'KGV are a good team and they have improved since we played them. They have scored 17 goals in their matches so far. Who knows what will happen if we play them in the final,' Ma said. Ma said his side has only been together a few months as many players from last year's team had left the school. 'We lost half the team. Some have come up from Grade B and we have some new players and they have done very well,' he added. Captain Kwok Shing-hei, midfielder Lo Wai-tat and powerful striker Lau Kin-ho have been outstanding for ATS. The coach admits they know little about their opponents today. 'We haven't seen them play but they have had some good results. They beat Island School and West Island School, but then they strangely lost to South Island School. It's hard to know what to expect,' Ma said. ATS lost to La Salle 2-0 in their first game, but beat Munsang College and Chong Gene Hang College 2-0 and 3-1, respectively, and drew with Wah Yan College (Hong Kong). St Joseph's won four and lost one of their five matches. In the other semi-final, KGV will be confident after a strong finish to their league campaign, when they crushed Munsang College 7-0 and Wah Yan College (Hong Kong) 4-0. West Island will need to recover from a 2-1 loss to St Joseph's in their last match.
