Cayman Prep scores over Red Bay in kids’ league

| 14/10/2013

(CUC-PFL): Following the second week of play in the 2013/2014 CUC PFL season Opening Rally champions Cayman Prep find themselves atop Group B with impressive wins over Red Bay Primary. In the earlier game, Cayman Prep’s Pierce Terry led his troops with two goals in the 13th and 43rd minutes, the first from the penalty spot, with Tom Byrne adding to the tally in the 37th minute. Red Bay’s goal was on unfortunate own goal for Prep’s Justin Byles inthe 23rd minute following a free kick from Red Bay’s Alejandro Holness.

In the Under 11 encounter, two goals apiece from Harrison Hew (11th and 15th) Victor Thompson (26th and 32nd) and Aaron Jarvis (27th and 41st) brought this encounter to an early end under the newly initiated “Mercy Rule”.

Red Bay’s Caleb Frederick missed a chance to bring his team level early in the game in the 14thminute but crashed his effort off the cross bar after a penalty was called for handball against CaymanPrep.

The “Mercy Rule” was added to the “PFL Laws of the Game” for the 2013/2014 season to increase playing time for many players who do not always have the opportunity to play as much as they would like.

The PFL’s “Mercy Rule” states that if a score line differential of six goals is reached at any stage during a game the referee will record that specific score but discontinue keeping score from that point onwards. The game will continue and even though more goals may be scored by either school, no further scoring will be recorded.

Other results from Group B included Prospect Primary 0 vs. NorthEast Schools 0 (Under 9); Prospect Primary 0 vs. NorthEast Schools 0 (Under 11); Triple C 2 vs. South Sound Schools 7 (Under 9); and Triple C 1 vs. South Sound Schools 7 (Under 11).

In Group A it was Savannah Primary 2 vs. Cayman International School 0 (Under 9); Savannah Primary 6 vs. Cayman International School 0 (Under 11); Truth For Youth 0 vs. St. Ignatius Prep 5 (Under 9); and Truth For Youth 2 vs. St. Ignatius Prep 2 (Under 11).
The 2013/2014 CUC PFL regular season continues this Saturday, October 19 with games at the West Bay Town Hall Field, Annex Field, St. Ignatius Prep, Bodden Town Primary and Donovan Rankine Field in East End.
