Fastest PFL goal helps place South Sound top

| 29/10/2013

(CUC-PFL): The Under 11s from South Sound Schools moved to the top of Group B in the CUC Primary Football League (PFL) following a hard-fought victory over Prospect Primary this past Saturday at the Annex Field. With Group B leaders Cayman Prep idle this past weekend after postponing their games against North East Schools due to their mid-term break, two goals from Diondre Wright in the 13th second and 28th minute was enough to defeat Prospect Primary 2-1. Wright’s 13 second strike was the quickest goal so far this season and one of the fastest goals scored in PFL history.

Prospect Primary’s Andrew Suberan drew his team level in the 26thminute after South Sounds’ goalkeeper Brandon Jackson parried a shot directly on to the boots of the Prospect danger man. Two minutes later, Diondre Wright broke free to hammer home his second goal of the day and the game winner.

Prospect came very close to levelling the score two minutes from time with Joshua Jackson blasting his long range drive off the cross bar. In the earlier Under 9 game, South Sound Schools’ Jake Booker scored in the 6th and 22nd minutes to secure a 2-0 victory over the youngsters from Prospect Primary.

In the only other Group B games of the day, it was Triple C 4 vs. Bodden Town Primary 0 (Under 9; forfeit) and Triple C 4 vs. Bodden Town Primary 3 (Under 11).

In the day’s second set of matches at the Annex Field, Group A’s Savannah Primary and George Town Primary shared the spoils as each school left the capital with a win a piece. In the Under 9 game, Savannah’s Jynu Jacob led his team to a 6-0 victory over George Town Primary after netting three goals in the first half. Further strikes from Javon Clarke, Akiel Bodden and Jaquan Wray sealed the win.

In the Under 11 encounter, missed opportunities and an own goal plagued Savannah Primary’s efforts as they went down 2-1 to George Town Primary. Savannah’s Akiel Bodden scored and missed a penalty either side of half time and George Town’s Isaac Ebanks was involved with both of his school’s goals scoring the first and playing a major part in Savannah’s unfortunate own goal.

Other results from Group A included Sir John A. Cumber Primary 3 vs. Truth For Youth 0 (Under 9); and Sir John A. Cumber Primary 3 vs. Truth For Youth 2 (Under 11). The 2013/2014 CUC PFL regular season takes a break this Saturday due to the mid-term break and resumes on Saturday 9 November.
