GPFL Consolation Cup:
Sir John A. Cumber will play Savannah Primary in next week’s final. The young ladies from West Bay showed great composure in a 2-0 semifinal penalty shootout victory over George Town Primary after neither school could find the back of the net during regular time or extra time.

PFL Under 9 Champions Cup:
In a rematch of the 2016 final, CIS ‘A’ avenged last year’s sudden death penalty loss to their rivals Cayman Prep ‘A’ with a convincing 3-0 victory in the first semifinal. A strike from Chaz Ruddick in the ninth minute and a double from Hayden Keens in the 26th and 33rd minutes sealed the win for CIS.

In the second semifinal, St Ignatius defeated Prospect Primary 3-0 with two goals from Kyan Okoli and one from Patrick Roberts. CIS ‘A’ will face St Ignatius next week for the Under 9 championship.

Cayman Prep ‘A’ will play Prospect Primary for third place.

PFL Under 9 Consolation Cup:

PFL Under 11 Champions Cup:
In a rematch of last year’s exciting final, defending champions Cayman Prep will face CIS in next week’s final.

In the day’s first semifinal this past Saturday, Cayman Prep beat St Ignatius 4-0 thanks to goals from Jakub Neverill, Jaxon Cover, Sean Byles and Zachary Brooks, and in the second semifinal, CIS defeated Red Bay Primary 6-0 with goals from Gavin Sunley (2), Paul Morineau (2), Danny Lyne and Thomas Isabel.

The third place game will be contested between St Ignatius and Red Bay Primary.

PFL Under 11 Consolation Cup:
For the first time in CUC PFL history, a playoff game was hosted in Cayman Brac as Cayman Brac welcomed George Town Primary for one of two semifinals. Cayman Brac ran out 4-1 victors and will face Triple C in next week’s final as Triple C defeated South Sound Schools 4-3 in the second semifinal.

Triple C and South Sound Schools needed a penalty shootout to decide a winner as both schools were locked at 2-2 at the end of full time and extra time. Triple C prevailed 2-1 in the deciding penalty shootout.

The organisers thanked all the youth officials for handling the semifinal games – Kandre Amerally, David Connolly, Jonathan Holness and Alex Dailey – as well as Chastine Rankine, Shirley Amerally and Andrew Holness for their assistance in coordinating the day’s events.
