(CNS Local Life): Cayman International School (CIS) Blue and Cayman Prep and High School made history this past week by winning, respectively, the inaugural Dart Under 14 Girls’ and Under 13 Boys’ high school football leagues. In the girls’ league, CIS Blue defeated Cayman Prep 2-1 on Wednesday, 22 November at the Annex Field to lift the Dart Cup. Cayman Prep took the lead in the first half through Jenna Edwards but two CIS second-half goals off the boots of Lexi Bromfield and Kasey Golding sealed the win and the championship for the girls in blue.

On their journey to claiming the championship, CIS Blue won all seven games and scored a whopping 38 goals throughout the seven-week season, stated a press release. With the loss, the young ladies from Cayman Prep finished the season as runners-up in the eight-team league.

On hand to present both the Dart Cup and the runners-up trophy was Dart’s vice president of community development Chris Duggan.

In the boys’ league, Cayman Prep overran home team St Ignatius 4-1 on Thursday, 23 November to claim the boy’s Dart Cup. Cayman Prep jumped out to an early 3-0 lead with goals from Jack Lomax and a double from Matthew Lloyd-Hickey.

Cayman Prep also finished their season undefeated with six wins and a draw, scoring 27 goals in the process.

Triple C claimed the runners-up spot in the boys’ league after defeating Clifton Hunter High School 2-1 at the CIFA Centre of Excellence.

With the success of this inaugural season, organisers of high school football are planning to implement Under 15 high school leagues for boys and girls in 2018 or 2019 and aim to eventually start Under 18 leagues.

High schools participating in the leagues this year were Clifton Hunter High School, John Gray High School, St Ignatius Catholic School, Triple C, Cayman Prep and High School, CIS and Cayman Academy.

The organising committee thanked the youth officials who handled a majority of the games and included students from several of the participating schools.
