Really bad to the bone

| 17/09/2009

(CNS): Football season began last week with the SASI Kick-Off Football tournament and was followed by the opening of the annual Cayman Brac Power & Light 6-a-side Football League a few days later. The CBP&L League is the main football league in the Brac and runs annually from September – November featuring Primary, Youth and Senior divisions of play nightly. If there’s one team that is causing the entire stir early in the league campaign it’s “Bad to the Bone” led by captain Cameron Brown. Brac United won their first trophy of the season by winning the Kick-Off Tournament.

They continued their dominant form into the CBP&L League last week and are the leaders of the Youth Division with two wins from two matches. Team Captain Nicholas Laurendo has tallied two hat-tricks and leads the goal-scoring table with 6 goals already. In hot pursuit behind him are Erick Rodriguez and Geoff Scott each with four goals apiece. Young female sensation Shanelle Frederick is also in the goal-scoring hunt with three goals of her own, and if the past is any indication of what’s to come then by all means don’t count her out for she just may explode to the top of the heap before long.

Struggling Un-Tiro Ballers have a few days to gather their thoughts and re-organize themselves as they stay bottom of the Youth Division table after losing all two of their week-one matches. There are signs of improvement is their camp, however, and week-two will test their character and fortitude to get a point or more to raise their spirits and give them hope.

It was team Bad to the Bone that caught most of the attention in week-one by wining all two of their opening matches to lead the Senior Division table. They pulled off a late winner against CD Marathon, Cayman Brac’s U-17 boy’s team and narrowly escaped with all three-points against Gazza. The game against Gazza will go down as controversial and arguments will continue over the weeks by many when team Gazza appeared to have scored a second-half equalizer from a direct free-kick but it was ruled to have gone through the side-netting which had a hole and no goal was allowed. Very few goals were scored in week-one from the senior division but week-two promises to light-up the goal nets and the goalkeepers themselves, so prepare for the fire-works display.

Matches are played every Monday & Wednesday at the field on the bluff with the Youth Division matches starting at 5:30 & 6:30pm each while the Senior Division matches are scheduled for 7:30 & 8:30pm. The Primary Division will get under-way in the next two-weeks and more information will be given when available.
