Sir John A. Cumber Primary (red) won close game against Truth For Youth

(CNS Local Life): The Sir John A. Cumber Primary Under 11 boys made it three wins out of three with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Truth For Youth School during the third round of the 2016/2017 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) regular season Saturday, 22 October, at the West Bay Town Hall Field.

The West Bay school’s Nahshon Ebanks, who scored the game winner last week in the Under 9 game against George Town Primary, was again the focus of attention as he was brought down in the penalty area in the 12th minute to set up the resulting penalty for his school and the chance to take the lead.

Central defender and captain Javon Anderson made no mistake from the spot although Truth For Youth’s goalkeeper, LeAndre McKay, did manage to get a glove to the powerful shot only to redirect the ball into the corner of his net.

McKay would be the busier of the two goalkeepers on the day as he kept his school in the game with a number of key saves throughout this exciting contest. Not to be outdone, Sir John A. Cumber’s Javon Henry, normally a pivotal player in the midfield for his school, exchanged his shooting boots for a pair of gloves on this occasion and he too made a number of important saves, which frustrated the other team’s forwards.

Truth For Youth’s Jayden Wright and Cameron Gardiner worked tirelessly throughout the game searching for that all-important equaliser and coming close on a number of occasions with Wright hitting the crossbar late in the game with a well-delivered corner kick.

In other PFL Group A games, it was George Town Primary 0 vs Savannah Primary 0 (Under 9); George Town Primary 1 vs Savannah Primary 2 (Under 11); St Ignatius Prep 4 vs Cayman Prep ’B’ 0 (Under 9 – Respect Rule enforced); and St Ignatius Prep 4 vs Prospect Primary ‘B’ 0 (Under 11 – Respect Rule enforced).

In Group B games, it was South Sound Schools 3 vs Red Bay Primary 1 (Under 9); South Sound Schools 0 vs Red Bay Primary 0 (Under 11); Triple C 3 vs Prospect Primary 2 (Under 9); Triple C 1 vs Prospect Primary ‘A’ 1 (Under 11); and Cayman Prep 4 vs Cayman Brac 1 (Under 11).

In games played in the CUC Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL), scores in Group A included George Town Primary 0 vs Savannah Primary 1 and St Ignatius Prep 0 vs Prospect Primary ‘GA’ 0.

In Group B, it was Triple C 4 vs Prospect Primary ‘GB’ 0 (Respect Rule enforced) and Cayman Prep 2 vs Sir John A. Cumber ‘B’ 1.
