| 15/11/2012

(CUC-PFL): After stumbling in their first two pflfinals2012 003 (232x300).jpggames, the Under 11s from South Sound Schools got their season back on track with a narrow 2-1 victory over the always enthusiastic visitors from Cayman Brac. Following an uneventful first half which ended scoreless, the game exploded into life in the second half as the South Sound Schools forwards started to find their range with a series of shots. On the other side of the ball, Cayman Brac was gaining in confidence as their forwards were finding a little space to run in. In the 45th minute, the Brac’s speedy and determined striker Shayla Connor broke free from the South Sound Schools defenders and hammered her team into the lead with a well-taken effort, much to the delight of the Brac supporters.

With Cayman Brac in the ascendency, South Sound Schools pushed forward and were rewarded with a penalty after Kiran Conolly-Basdeo was taken down in the penalty area. Up stepped Aidan Hew who calmly placed the ball into the corner of the net to bring his team level. With five minutes to go, South Sound School’s inspirational leader Lewis McMurdo broke the hearts of the Cayman Brac players and supporters as he popped up to score his team’s second goal and clinch the victory following a goal-mouth scramble.
