The Central Colchester Bears and Bible Hill Huskies are vying for the title, which was originally scheduled to be played in December, but was postponed twice due to weather.
The Bears enter the event as the district champions after nipping the Huskies 2-1 in the Subway Cup final. The district title was the first in 23 years for the Bears.
Making the feat even more impressive is the Huskies were undefeated this season.
