Legon Presec have been to the finals for three consecutive times in a row 2019, 2020 and 2021 also giving them the confidence ahead of Prempeh and Keta.

Keta on the other end are first timers in the finals and may struggle a bit although they have good team work and brilliant Bright on their side. Just like Chemu SHS, they bowed out when they met Defending Champions Presec.

Based on the fact that the finals will be held at Kumasi and Prempeh College history of beating Presec, It is likely that Prempeh College will be crowned winners on Friday and Presec will be the first runner up and Keta SHTS to be the 2nd runner up.
