CHHS boys defend Dart Under 13 high school football title

Sports 23 Oct, 2023 Follow News

Dart Under 13 boys champions Clifton Hunter High School A.

After seven challenging weeks of play, the Dart Under 13 Boys’ Cup will not be finding a new home this year as it will remain in Frank Sound for a second year running.

Clifton Hunter High School’s (CHHS) boys A team successfully defended their Dart Under 13 boys high school football title by way of a perfect record – eight wins out of eight.

In 2022, the CHHS title win was the first for a government high school in the relatively short history of the Dart Under 13 high school football competition. CHHS A’s run to the title began with a slender 3-1 victory over rivals John Gray High School (JGHS) and from there, it was simply securing wins rather than draws.

Even with the loss, JGHS were constantly applying pressure on the defending champions hoping for that one slip, that one slip that would give JGHS a sliver of hope. But it was not to be. The young men from CHHS A held firm and their consistency throughout the season would be the key to their success.

The league title was secured on October 18 after Triple C were unable to field a team in their final game against CHHS A. With wins over JGHS (3-1), Cayman Prep 1 (4-1), Cayman Prep 2 (6-0), CHHS B (4-0), St. Ignatius Catholic High School (6-0) and three points against Triple C (4-0 forfeit), amassing 38 goals in total while conceding only five, the coveted Dart Under 13 Boys’ Cup is staying in Frank Sound.

JGHS finished as runners-up only three points behind the champions and Cayman International School rounded off the top three finishers with 18 points.

The Appleby Under 18 girls and boys high school football leagues will kick-off on Monday, November 6th and end in December.
