The 2011/2012 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) Playoffs resumed this past Saturday, January 7 with a full schedule of games in the Under 9 and Under 11 divisions.

Schools competing in the Under 9 Consolation Cup got their first chance to impress the crowd as Cayman International School drew 1-1 with Triple C, George Town Primary defeated Red Bay Primary 2-0 and Prospect Primary overpowered Truth For Youth 4-0.

In the Under 9 Champions Cup, Group B champions Cayman Prep continued their undefeated run with a convincing 4-0 win over Savannah Primary. Group A champions Sir John A. Cumber Primary secured a hard-fought 2-0 victory over West Bay neighbours Grace Academy, St. Ignatius Prep lost 1-2 to a very well organised South Sound Schools and Bodden Town Primary scored a late equalizer to draw 1-1 with NorthEast Schools.

In the Under 11 Consolation Cup, Bodden Town Primary scored four against Prospect Primary on their way to a convincing 4-1 win and NorthEast School defeated Cayman International School 3-1.

To conclude an already successful and exciting day, the Under 11 Champions Cup games took centre-stage. Undefeated Sir John A. Cumber Primary were relentless as they overcame a stubborn Triple C outfit 5-2, George Town Primary continued their winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Red Bay Primary and Grace Academy held St. Ignatius Prep to a 0-0 draw.

In the day’s featured game, Cayman Prep was determined to gain their first points of the 2011/2012 Playoffs after going down 1-4 to Sir John A. Cumber Primary on the first day of the Playoffs in December. Next up for the Prepsters – Truth For Youth.

With All-Primary standouts Kareem Foster and Nicholas Chung in the line-up along with Christian Dyer, Truth For Youth would not falter easily. Likewise, with David Pitcairn and Jonah Narborough leading the attack for Cayman Prep, spectators were in for a goal feast.

Truth For Youth quickly took the lead as Kareem Foster slotted home his team’s first after a dazzling run. Two more goals in quick succession gave the Truth For Youth outfit a commanding lead. Not to be outdone, Cayman Prep scored just before halftime as David Pitcairn was tripped in the box and from the resulting penalty, Cayman Prep was back in the game.

Jonah Narborough opened the second half scoring for Cayman Prep with a wonderful strike but Truth For Youth struck back quickly to maintain their two goal cushion at 4-2. Cayman Prep’s Matthew Haynes brought the Prepsters within one late in the second half but Truth For Youth held on for the 4-3 win.

Special thanks to officials Dwayne Ebanks, Gary Whittaker and Lazarus Moraes who handled the games throughout the day.

Day 3 of the 2011/2012 CUC PFL Playoffs continue next Saturday, January 14, 2012 with a full lineup of games beginning at 9:00 a.m.
