Heritage High five after getting the Edge

Heritage High is off to a good start in a local youth football league.

The George Hicks-based school is on top of the table in the Department of Youth and Sports U15 Interscholastic Football League.

So far their record is 2-0 and the team has put up solid numbers scoring three goals while allowing just one goal.

Last Wednesday they beat fellow George Hicks-based school Leading Edge 1-0 with a goal midway through the first half.

The game was a close encounter throughout. Both squads were eager to press the ball forward though the passing in midfield was lacking.

The game saw good coaching from Kirlew Watson of Heritage High and Rupert Hoilette of Leading Edge. Both encouraged their teams to space themselves and be alert on defense.

Heritage next play tomorrow against New Horizons school at the George Hicks play field.

Coming into this week New Horizons were in second place in the league with four points courtesy of two draws.

The stats show the team is playing well, scoring four goals though they have allowed four.

Pace and Leading Edge will be in action on the same day at the George Hicks field as well. Both will be looking for their first win of the season.

The teams go into their game with identical records of 0-1-1 and three points. Both have been mediocre with Pace scoring three goals and allowing four while Leading Edge has scored two goals but allowed three.

The rest of the week’s games were played yesterday. Triple C took on Cayman Prep at George Hicks while St Ignatius hosted Eagle’s Wings at Catholic. Results of those games will be published at a later date.

The league plays for some seven weeks with the final games being around early December.

Games take place on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3pm at either the George Hicks or the St. Ignatius (Catholic) grounds.
