Cayman Islands PFL Weekly Review: Triple C and NorthEast Schools play to an exciting draw

With the CUC Primary Football League (PFL) and Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL) heading into the final two weeks of regular season games, schools are jostling for positions in their respective groups as the Playoffs loom.

In the Group B Under 11 clash at the Dart Field in Camana Bay, Triple C and NorthEast Schools shared the points following an exciting, end-to-end encounter, which ended 1-1.

Both goals came in the first 10 minutes with Triple C taking the lead in the 3rd minute after a penalty was awarded for handball. Anthony Chin made no mistake as he placed the spot kick into the left corner well out of the reach of the NorthEast School’s goal keeper.

The lead was short-lived for the Crusaders as the NorthEast ‘yellow machine’ powered forward in search of the equaliser. In the 8th minute, NorthEast’s tiny forward Jayden Russell levelled the score with a well-taken shot that found the left corner of Triple Cs goal following good build-up play from his team mates.

There were would be no further scoring but that did not detract from the excitement that was generated by both sets of players. Both goal keepers stood ‘tall’ in the nets as they pulled off a few extraordinary saves throughout the remainder of the game.

In the Under 9 game played between Cayman International School ‘B’ and Triple C, it was the Crusaders who triumphed 2-0 with goals from Corey McLaughlin in the 7th minute and Ty Rhone in the 19th minute.

Results from other games played in Group B played included Bodden Town Primary 1 vs. Red Bay Primary 1 (Under 9); Bodden Town Primary 0 vs. Red Bay Primary 2 (Under 11); Cayman Prep ‘A’ 5 vs. Prospect Primary 6 (Under 9); Cayman Prep 4 vs. Prospect Primary 0 (Under 11); and Cayman Brac 0 vs. South Sound Schools 4.
