Markie enjoyed high five

The Digicel Cup final pits two of Cayman’s best teams – and fierce West Bay rivals – on Ash Wednesday at the TE McField Annex.

Scholars International takes on Elite Sports Club and it promises to be another epic on 13 February. Both West Bay finalists came through their second leg semifinal games comfortably.

At the TE McField Annex last week, Elite drew with Cayman Athletic, 2-2, and went through 6-2 on aggregate after a comfortable 4-0 first leg win.

Scholars International drew with George Town, 0-0, in the first leg and things were still all square after the break in the second leg.

Anxious for the killer goal, both sides pressed, but it was Scholars that found the net through Carson Fagan before Nahun Rodriguez got his 11th of the season to make him the island’s top scorer at the time. Captain Oneil Taylor sealed the 3-0 victory in injury time.

Mark Ebanks will be lining up for Elite against his former club on Wednesday, hoping to maintain the form that saw him smash in all five goals in a Premier League game last week in a 5-4 victory against Cayman Athletic.

Athletic’s scorers were Jerronie McLean, Kelly Leon, Kyle Santamaria and Matthew Suberan. But they had no answer to Markie’s high five, which took him to a season tally of 11.

The league’s leading marksman, Dwayne “Gaza” Wright, has missed a few games through injury, but he ensured he is still the leading scorer with a brace for Bodden Town in a 3-0 victory over Yefry Calderon.

Academy won 3-1 against North Side. Jonah Ebanks got two and Emmanuel Ricoh Brown the other for Academy. Guiton King scored for North Side.

Scholars repeated their Digicel Cup victory by the same margin against George Town. Carson Fagan opened the scoring again and the others came from Ziecko Herrera and Paul Brown.

This Sunday, 17 February, North Side will play Cayman Athletic at 5pm at the Bodden Town field, before BT face Scholars International at 7pm.

At the TE McField Annex, Tigers face Academy in the early game before George Town play Elite.
