After going close twice, YCH Tung Chi Ying Memorial School (TCY) are hoping they can finally win the Jing Ying Football Tournament. The Sha Tin and Sai Kung district champions, who lost to Diocesan Boys' School in the 2003 championship clash, will be appearing in their third semi-final in three years this weekend. They take on Buddhist Chi Hong Chi Lam Memorial College at Shamshuipo Sports Ground on Sunday morning. 'This will be a very challenging match for us,' said TCY coach Edmond Hung Chor-ying. 'They are the Tai Po and North District runners-up and last year they were district champions. I know they have a handful of very talented players. And even though we also have skilful players, we must pay attention to their attacking potential.' TCY squeezed past King George V School in the quarter-finals last week, allowing their opponents to steal a last-minute equaliser and force a penalty shoot-out. 'We had so many chances to score in that game. We hit the post several times and were caught off-side a lot. We had no luck. We scored five out of six penalties and won, but we should never have given them a chance like that,' Hung said. 'I hope we can reach the final and get a chance to play West Island [School] again. We lost to them in the semi-finals last year. We want to defeat them this time. It would be a high-quality final. 'I hope the weather is good on Sunday. Then we have a better chance. We have a lot of skilful players who prefer the dry ground.' West Island, the defending champions, take on last year's semi-finalists St Joseph's College on Sunday at the same venue. West Island won the Hong Kong and Kowloon district title, while St Joseph's College were third. St Joseph's coach Wu Wan-kwok knows his boys are facing a tough task. 'West Island have a lot of goal-scoring power,' said Wu. 'There is no doubt they are the strongest team in the competition. Our chances of winning are below 50 per cent. We will have to play defensively and try to sneak a goal.'
