NorthEast big upset

The second day of playoff games in the 2012/13 CUC Primary Football League on Saturday at the TE McField Annex Field produced some surprises.

In the Under-9 Consolation Cup, George Town Primary blanked Bodden Town Primary 4-0 and Truth For Youth defeated Prospect Primary by the same score.

In the U-9 Champions Cup, Cayman Prep defeated St. Ignatius Prep 3-0 thanks to three second-half goals, two from Igor Magalhaes and a solitary strike from Joshua Small, Savannah Primary topped Red Bay Primary 2-0 with Jawan Wray and Jeremy Scott contributing a goal each, South Sound Schools overcame Cayman International School 5-3 with goals from Kiran Conolly-Basdeo, Lucas Carter (2), Lemar McLean and Diondre Wright with Wills Dolbier and Francisco Magno (2) replying for CIS and NorthEast Schools had to forfeit their game to Sir John A. Cumber Primary due to transportation problems.

In the Under-11 Consolation Cup, Truth For Youth defeated South Sound Schools 3-1 and Cayman International School downed Prospect Primary 2-1.

The day’s biggest upset came in the U-11 Champions Cup as an energetic NorthEast Schools knocked-off the Opening Rally champions Sir John A. Cumber Primary 1-0.

The boys and girls from the east gave the boys from the west all sorts of problems for the entire 60 minutes.

Clear goal-scoring opportunities were few for both schools but the speedy Lamoy Moody punished the Sir John A. Cumber rearguard with a strike in the 36th minute, which proved to be the winner.

Sir John A. Cumber’s talismanic midfielder Barry-Dre Tibbetts could not motivate his team-mates as they could not find a way past a resilient NorthEast defence.

As the game wore on, John A. Cumber were limited to long-range efforts as Jaharion Bodden whistled a few just over the bar several times.

In other U-11 games, Red Bay Primary’s Jamaal Whittaker scored the first hat-trick of the playoffs and Ciaron Haylock added a fourth as they downed St. Ignatius Prep 4-0.

In the final game of the day, George Town Primary were down 1-0 to Bodden Town Primary after six minutes as Breshawn Watson opened the scoring from a corner, but a solitary strike from Cyrus Conolly in the 11th minute and a double from Joshua O’Garro in the 14th and 31st minutes sealed the win for George Town.
