West Bay school triumphs in age-old rivalry

| 25/11/2014

(CUC-PFL): Sir John A Cumber and George Town renewed their traditional rivalry in the CUC Primary Football League (PFL) and Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL) Saturday at the Annex Field. Not so long ago this fixture would be the highlight of the season for both schools but this season has been more of a learning year for both sets of coaches who have been blending in a number of new players and youngsters into their teams. In theGroup A U9 encounter, Sir John A Cumber Primary’s defender Matthias McLean got the game’s onlygoal in the 35th minute as he hit a high, looping shot that deceived stand-in goalkeeper Jeru McField and bounced into the back of the empty net much to the delight of the scorer’s West Bay teammates.

Those few seconds of misjudgment were young Jeru McField’s only blemish on a stellar
performance in the George Town goal, which saw the young man make some wonderful saves during the game to keep his team in the match.

In the GPFL, the young ladies from Sir John A. Cumber Primary found their counterparts from George Town very difficult to breakdown but Rianna Jackson scored in the 37th minute to lead her team to a hard-fought 1-0 victory.

In the morning’s feature game, the Under 11s from Sir John A. Cumber made it “three out of three” with a 3-0 victory over the older boys from George Town Primary thanks to goals from Taron Ebanks in the 5th minute, Rashaad Powery in the 19th minute and Arthur Fredericks in the 43rd minute. Although going down to defeat in all three games, the boys and girls from George Town Primary showed great determination and effort. Their “never give-up” attitude is what the PFL and the GPFL are all about.

Other PFL results in Group A included St. Ignatius Prep 2 vs. Cayman International School 3 (Under 9) and St. Ignatius Prep 4 vs. Cayman International School 1 (Under 11)

In the other Group A game in the GPFL it was St. Ignatius Prep 2 vs. Cayman International School 0. In Group B of the PFL, it was Cayman Prep 6 vs. Bodden Town Primary 0 (Under 9); Cayman Prep 7 vs.Bodden Town Primary 1 (Under 11); NorthEast Schools 1 vs. South Sound Schools 0 (Under 9); NorthEast Schools 3 vs. South Sound Schools 2 (Under 11); Triple C 0 vs. Red Bay Primary 3 (Under 9); Triple C 1 vs. Red Bay Primary 1 (Under 11) and Prospect Primary 1 vs. Cayman Brac 2 (Under 11). In the GPFL Group B games it was Cayman Prep 4 vs. Bodden Town Primary 0 and Triple C 1 vs. Red Bay Primary 0.
