| 14/10/2014

(CUC-PFL): The Under 9 youngsters from Sir John A Cumber opened their 2014/15 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) campaign with a 2-0 victory over St Ignatius Prep at the West Bay Town Hall Field Saturday, October 11. In the Group A Under 9 encounter, it was a tense first half as neither school could find the target. Coming off a commanding 4-0 win over Truth For Youth’s Under 9s last weekend, St. Ignatius’ forwards were finding it difficult to break down the Sir John A Cumber rearguard. In the 32nd minute, the breakthrough came as Sir John A. Cumber’s Drequan Kirchman opened the scoring squeezing a shot between the St Ignatius goalkeeper Jon-Paul Miller and the near post to the delight of his team mates.

Sir John A. Cumber added a second in the 47th minute albeit an unfortunate own goal on the part of St. Ignatius. St. Ignatius’ Jon-Paul Miller was outstanding between the posts as he thwarted the Sir John A. Cumber attack with some excellent saves throughout the game.
In the Under 11 game, the final score of 3-3 reflected an exciting encounter which thrilled the large contingent of parents and supporters gathered on the side lines. Sir John A. Cumber’s Arthur Fredericks opened the scoring for the boys in red but Daniel Novak responded almost immediately for St. Ignatius.

In the second half, Sir John A. Cumber’s Rashaad Powery blasted his school in front before Daniel Rivers once again brought his school level. St. Ignatius’ Matthew Lloyd-Hickey added a third to take the lead late in the game for the prepsters but Sir John A. Cumber’s Lewey Bodden had the final say in this enthralling encounter as he found the net with almost the last kick of the game to make it 3-3.

In the Group A Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL) match-up Sir John A. Cumber Primary’s Stoyanna Stewart scored twice in the 12th and 22nd minutes and Hayleigh Sciamonte added a third in the 49th minute to secure the victory over an enthusiastic group of young ladies from St. Ignatius.
