George Town Primary and Cayman International School at the Annex Field nearly produced two four-goal heroes on Saturday.
In the Under-9 matchup, CIS’ Jonathan Rado notched a hat-trick in their victory over a lively George Town Primary team who kept battling on until the final whistle.
The CIS striker nearly made it four but missed a penalty in the second half as his team emerged 3-0 winners.
George Town’s energetic Isaac Ebanks was a constant menace to the CIS rearguard but could not find the net.
In the U-11 game, George Town’s talented midfielder Joshua O’Garro scored four times as they concluded the morning’s activities with a 4-0 win over the U-11s from CIS.
O’Garro went on a few customary mazy runs early on only to be stopped by CIS skipper Francisco Magno and his troops.
With his younger brother Micah orchestrating George Town’s backline, Joshua was free to go forward. Not surprisingly, in the 24th minute, he finally scored.
In the 45th minute, Joshua was upended in the box and he converted the penalty. With fatigue setting in for a majority of the CIS players, O’Garro took advantage and netted his team’s third in the 49th minute and his and his fourth in the 57th minute.
Other results from Group A were Savannah Primary 2 v Truth For Youth 2 (Under 9); Savannah Primary 4 v Truth For Youth 0 (Under 11); and Sir John A. Cumber Primary 4 v Grace Academy 1 (Under 11).
In Group B it was Prospect Primary 1 v South Sound Schools 5 (Under 9); Prospect Primary 2 v South Sound Schools 1 (Under 11); NorthEast Schools 0 v Cayman Prep 4 (Under 9); NorthEast Schools 0 v Cayman Prep 4 (Under 11); Red Bay Primary 11 v Cayman Brac 0 (Under 11); and Bodden Town Primary 5 v Triple C 1 (Under 9).
