George Town Primary fall short against CIS

The second round of games in the 2022 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) and Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL) were played this past Saturday, October 8 at fields across the Island.

In Group A, Cayman International School (CIS) hosted the George Town Primary Under 9 and Under 11 boys at the Camana Bay Sports Complex. In the Under 9 encounter, young Myles Pierre opened the scoring for the home team in the 6th minute as he ‘ghosted’ past a trio of George Town defenders before placing his shot into the corner of the net. CIS increased their lead two minutes later as Nolan Anderson added to his team’s tally just before the first two-minute water break. Confidence was high in the CIS camp and Jesse Duiker-Daignault sealed the 3-0 win in the 16th minute with a well-taken effort.

George Town’s youngsters defended resolutely throughout the game. The experience gained from this loss will surely be beneficial in the remaining games.

In the Under 11 game, CIS defeated George Town Primary 3-0 thanks to goals from Charles Henricksen in the 5th minute, Lucas Kerr in the 34th minute and Colt Higgo, who sealed the victory from the penalty spot in the 51st minute. Young Mr. Kerr’s goal was especially thrilling as he guided a header off the post from a corner.

In other scores from Group A, it was St. Ignatius Catholic 5 vs. Truth For Youth 1 (Under 9; respect rule), St. Ignatius Catholic 4 vs. Truth For Youth 0 (Under 11; respect rule), Joanna Clarke Primary 0 vs Cayman Prep 9B 3 (Under 9) and Joanna Clarke Primary 1 vs. Cayman Prep 11B 0 (Under 11).

In Group B, it was Red Bay Primary 0 vs. Cayman Prep 9A 4 (Under 9; respect rule), Red Bay Primary 0 vs. Cayman Prep 11A 4 (Under 11; respect rule) and Prospect Primary 5 vs. Triple C 1 (Under 11; respect rule).

In the CUC GPFL Under 11 league, CIS hosted Joanna Clarke Primary at the Camana Bay Sports Complex. Eager to build on their opening day victory against Sir john A. Cumber Primary a week ago, the young ladies from CIS were on the attack from the opening whistle. Sadie Nelson opened the scoring in the 7th minute with Sophia Santiago scoring her first of two goals in the 11th minute. Young Miss Nelson scored her second from the penalty spot in the 18th minute and Miss Santiago sealed the win in the 32nd minute as CIS came out on top 4-0 (respect rule).

In defeat, the young ladies from Joanna Clarke Primary performed very well with encouraging signs of improvement and determination.

In other games played in the CUC GPFL, it was Prospect Primary 2 vs. Triple C 1 and Cayman Prep 4 vs. George Town Primary 0 (respect rule).

The GPFL Under 9 League kicked-off its season on Saturday morning with Sir John A. Cumber Primary, Cayman Prep and St. Ignatius Catholic taking to the field.

The third round of games are scheduled for this Saturday, October 15 prior to the mid-term break. Visit www.caymanyouthfootball.ky  for the full CUC PFL and GPFL schedules, scores and standings.
