Small Schools enjoy big win

Sports 16 Oct, 2023 Follow News

Action form the 2023 Cuc PFL.

The schedule for week 4 in the 2023 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) and the Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL) included a number of tantalizing match-ups for a several participating schools.

In the CUC PFL Under 11 division in Group B, Small Schools (formerly known as South Sound Schools) scored a memorable 4-1 victory over Cayman Brac in the 10:00 a.m. encounter at the Annex Field. Early goals in the 2nd minute and 4th minute rattled the young Sister Island representatives. An own goal in the 22nd minute plus a fourth in the 34th minute sealed the victory for Small Schools. The Brac’s Anthony Murillo pulled one back for his side in the 45th minute but it was too late for a comeback.

The Small Schools victory was made even more special due to the fact that they played the entire 52 minutes with only seven players and no substitutes. Cayman Brac’s coaching staff are to be congratulated for their decision to field only seven players to begin the game to match the number of players Small Schools fielded. Fabulous sportsmanship.

Cayman Brac’s late arrival due to flight delays from Cayman Brac surely contributed to their sub-par performance on the day but their enthusiasm never wavers.

In other scores from Group B, in Under 9 play, Cayman Prep 9A defeated Footsteps School 4-0 (respect rule) and Cayman Prep 11A beat NorthEast Schools 4-0 (respect rule) in the Under 11 division.

In Group A in Under 9 play, St. Ignatius Catholic downed Joanna Clarke Primary 4-1 and George Town Primary got past Cayman Prep 9B 2-0. In the Under 11 division, St. Ignatius Catholic defeated Joanna Clarke Primary 4-0 (respect rule), Cayman Prep 11B outgunned George Town Primary 4-0 and Cayman Prep 11C beat Island Primary 4-0 (respect rule).

In the GPFL division, Cayman Prep continued their winning ways with a 4-0 (respect rule) defeat of newcomers Island Primary thanks to strikes from Chloe Pervis in the 3rd minute, a 4th minute and 11th minute double from Olivia Blair and a solitary strike from Caleigh Corbin in the 6th minute. In other scores, Cayman International School downed Joanna Clarke Primary 4-1 and St. Ignatius Catholic edged Sir John A. Cumber Primary 1-0.
