Savannah secures top spot ahead of playoffs

| 26/11/2013

(CUC-PFL): This past Saturday, Savannah Primary’s Under 9 team and Cayman Prep’s Under 9 and Under 11 teams ended their league campaigns undefeated with victories on the final day of the 2013/2014 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) regular season. With the Playoffs scheduled to begin this Saturday, November 30, Savannah Primary’s Under 9s secured the top spot in Group A with a 3-0 victory over St. Ignatius Prep. Dylan Hernandez opened the scoring after only 31 seconds pouncing on a loose ball in the St.Ignatius penalty area to give his team an early lead from which St. Ignatius would never recover.

The youngsters from Savannah added to their lead in the 16th minute after St. Ignatius’ Daniel Rivers turned the ball into his own net trying to clear the ball off the line from an Akiel Bodden corner.

Jawan Wray sealed all three points in the 40th minute as he beat the St. Ignatius Prep offside trap to slot home his school’s 21st goal of the season and maintain their 100% record.
In the later game, Savannah’s Under 11s ‘snuck’ into the Champions Cup playoffs on goal difference with a 0-0 draw against St. Ignatius Prep thanks to the heroics of their stand out goal keeper Justin Miller. Young Miller had another excellent game between the posts making some very important saves at the feet of the St. Ignatius marksmen.
