Cumber Primary thanks to strikes either side of half time from Diondre Wright and Aiden Hew when the 2012/2013 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) playoffs in the Under 9 and Under 11 Champions Cups kicked off Saturday at the Annex Field with six very entertaining games. In the Under 9 Champions Cup, undefeated South Sound Schools continued their winning streak with a 2-0 victory over Sir John A. Cumber Primary thanks to strikes either side of half time from Diondre Wright and Aiden Hew.

In the second game, Savannah Primary overcame a stubborn NorthEast Schools 2-0 courtesy of an own-goal and a sublime strike from Zaejah Ramoon in the second half. I
n the Under 11 division, St. Ignatius Prep defeated Bodden Town Primary 3-2, George Town Primary outlasted Red Bay Primary by a similar score line 3-2, Cayman Prep beat Sir John A. Cumber Primary 3-0 and Grace Academy squeezed by NorthEast Schools 1-0.
In the first of the day’s two “big” matchups, George Town Primary’s Under 11 captain Joshua O’Garro netted twice and Cyrus Conolly added a third as they led their team past a sprightly Red Primary in a very closely contested encounter. Mesyias Llewellyn scored two in reply for the boys maroon.

In the second highly anticipated Under 11 matchup of the day, Sir John A. Cumber Primary tasted defeat for the first time this season after losing to an undefeated Cayman Prep 3-0. Following a mediocre first half from both teams, the game exploded into action as David Pitcairn opened the scoring in 32nd minute. Tommy Kehoe made it 2-0 in the 40th minute after a goal-mouth scramble and Aaron Jervis secured the threepoints in the 50th minute with the goal of the day.

Young Jervis latched on to a through ball, “nut-megged” the last defender and slotted the ball into the far corner of the net just out of the reach of Ike Bush in the Sir John A. Cumber goal. Grace Academy secured all three points for coach Arden Rivers by beating NorthEast Schools 1-0 thanks to a penalty by Gunnar Studenhofft.
