(PFL): With two weeks remaining in the regular seasons of the 2016/2017 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) and Girls’ Primary Football League (GPFL), the pressure is on for those schools looking to secure a spot in the elite Champions Cup competition. This past Saturday, 12 November, St Ignatius Prep travelled to West Bay to take on the undefeated Sir John A. Cumber Primary Under 11 boys while the unbeaten St Ignatius Prep Under 9s looked to keep their streak going.

St Ignatius’ Jaden Verhoeven earned the “Man of the Match” honours in the Under 9 encounter as he netted a hat trick to lead his school to a 5-1 victory over the boys from Sir John A. Cumber. Verhoeven opened the scoring in the third minute of play and added to his tally in the 34th and 39th minutes while Daniel DeQuintel and Patrick Duggan contributed with a goal apiece in the seventh and 37th minutes, respectively.

Sir John A. Cumber’s Jordan Bodden briefly brought his school back into the game in the 21st minute, which narrowed the lead to a single goal, but the boys from West Bay could not contain St Ignatius’ attackers for the remainder of the game.

In the Under 11 encounter, St Ignatius’ Devonti McInerney opened the scoring in the fifth minute with a blast from outside the box but Sir John A. Cumber’s Calyb Fredricks equalised in the 25th minute with a calm finish after being put through on goal via a glorious pass from his teammate Javon Henry.

St Ignatius’ Culainn Lynch put his school back in front in the 36th minute but Sir John A. Cumber’s Nahshon Ebanks scored the goal of the day in the 41st minute to level the score at 2-2 with a wonderful header.

In the girls’ game between St Ignatius Prep and Sir John A. Cumber, neither school could find the target and chances were few and far between as both defences played very well. The game ended 0-0.
