Local youth football has seen some good action this year and heading into the Christmas break one district can boast a decent amount of props.
Bodden Town Football Club sits atop the Cayman Islands Football Association Under-15 League. The side is 3-1-0 with 10 points, one point ahead of Cayman Athletic Sports Club who are 3-0-0. Both clubs boast dynamite offences steadied by up-and-coming talents in the sport that have scored 57 goals between the two squads. Bodden Town boasts league-leading scorer Leandro Powell (11 goals) and Joshua Clarke who is in the top ten in scoring with six goals. Cayman Athletic has their own star duo in Jamaal Seymour (third with eight goals) and Jonah Ebanks (fifth with six goals).
Both are also coming off solid showings recently. Bodden Town edged Tigers 3-2 while Cayman Athletic clobbered George Town 12-0.
On both of their heels is Tigers FC with a 3-0-1 mark. They have scored 25 goals while giving up just six. Leading the scoring barrage is Laurent Bodden, who sits second in the league with nine goals. Fourth and fifth place goes to a pair of 2-1-0 teams in Future SC and Elite SC respectively. Future has pushed on with their offence as they sport 17 goals on the campaign and two top scorers in Tevin Yen (fourth with seven goals) and Christian Castro (four goals) Elite meanwhile have relied on defence as they have allowed only three goals (second-best in the competition).
The rest of the standings see Academy SC (2-2), Sunset FC (1-1-1), East End United FC (0-2-2), Seven Mile FC (0-3), North Side FC (0-3) and George Town SC (0-4).
