Sports 24 Nov, 2022 Follow News

Action from the CUC PFL Under 11 game between Triple C (red and blue) and Cayman Brac.

The 2022 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) regular season concluded this past Saturday, November 19 with a number of schools playing for final places in the standings and the chance to play in the Champions Cup.

In Group A, George Town Primary made the short trip up the road to St. Ignatius Catholic with a place in the Champions Cup still up for grabs. First on the field were the Under 9s and unfortunately, for the second week in a row, George Town was only able to field six players due to illness. Unable to cope due to the lack of numbers, George Town was beaten 5-1 with St. Ignatius’ Eli Conolly scoring a double in the 13th and 24th minutes and Jayden Mwangi (15th minute) and Gage Murphy (30th minute) adding a goal each. The fifth goal was an own goal. George Town’s sole strike was off the boot of Javari McField in the 8th minute.

In the Under 11 game and with both teams at full strength, conditions were ripe for an old-fashioned battle. On a very bumpy, slick playing grass surface, both teams found the early going difficult as they did their best to control proceedings. Chances at goal were few throughout the game but the tackling was certainly a joy to watch as both sets of defenders and midfielders flew into the challenges with grit and determination, getting the ball first and fair in the majority of occasions.

In the 13th minute, St. Ignatius’ Emeka Adumekwe broke the deadlock as he ran on to a through ball before slotting home what would be the eventual winner. George Town Primary’s proud history of never giving up kept their team going as they searched for that elusive equalizer, but it wasn’t to be as St. Ignatius Catholic held on to win the game 1-0.

In other scores from Group A, it was Joanna Clarke Primary 1 vs. Sir John A. Cumber Primary 1 (Under 9), Joanna Clarke Primary 1 vs. Sir John A. Cumber Primary 2 (Under 11) and Cayman Prep 9B and 11B were awarded the points as Truth For Youth were unable to field any teams due to illness.

In Group B, it was Red Bay Primary 0 vs. Prospect Primary 0 (Under 9), Red Bay Primary 4 vs. Prospect Primary 0 (Under 11; respect rule), Theoline L. McCoy Primary 0 vs. NorthEast Schools 4 (Under 11; respect rule) and Triple C 2 vs. Cayman Brac 4 (Under 11).

In the CUC Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL), George Town Primary drew 0-0 with Cayman International School, Triple C downed Joanna Clarke Primary 4-0 (respect rule) and St. Ignatius Catholic and Sir John A. Cumber Primary settled for a 1-1 draw.

The 2022 CUC GPFL regular season continues this Saturday, November 26 while the 2022 CUC PFL Playoffs begin with the Under 9 and Under 11 Consolation and Champions Cups quarter-finals. The CUC GPFL playoffs kick-off on Saturday, December 3. All remaining GPFL regular season and CUC PFL playoff games will be played at the Annex Field beginning at 9:00 a.m.
