| 07/10/2013

(CUC-PFL): The Sir John A Cumber Primary and St. Ignatius Prep Under 9s and Under 11s opened the 2013/2014 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) with a win a piece. In the Under 9 game, two goals in the space of 10 minutes during the second half put St. Ignatius Prep on the road to victory. Matthew Lloyd-Hickey blasted his team’s first goal in the 30th minute and Chad Owens scored from a corner in the 39thminute to seal the three points. Sir John A Cumber’s Rashad Powery pulled one back for the boys from West Bay in the 45th minute but St. Ignatius held on for the win.

In the Under 11 game, Sir John A. Cumber’s Jarion Bodden opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a powerful drive from just inside the St. Ignatius half. Daniel Wallace added a second in the 49th minute for the West Bay school before St. Ignatius’ Brad Lansdell pounced on a loose ball in front of the goal in the 55th minute to bring his team back into the game.

Jarion Bodden came close to increasing his team’s lead on a number of occasions only to find the post in his way. Likewise, St. Ignatius’ Cory Smith had a number of shots at goal but unfortunately couldn’t get any on target with the post also being his greatest enemy. Other results from Group A included Truth For Youth 1 vs. George Town Primary 2 (Under 9) and Truth For Youth 0 vs. George Town Primary 3 (Under 11).

In Group B it was Red Bay Primary 1 vs. Prospect Primary 1 (Under 9); Red Bay Primary 0 vs. Prospect Primary 0 (Under 11); Bodden Town Primary 0 vs. South Sound Schools 4 (Under 9); Bodden Town Primary 1 vs. South Sound Schools 5 (Under 11); Triple C 1 vs. Cayman Prep 11 (Under 9) and Triple C 0 vs. Cayman Prep 4 (Under 11).
