The Under-11s from South Sound Schools moved to the top of Group B in the Caribbean Utilities Company Primary Football League following a hard-fought victory Prospect Primary on Saturday.
The match was at the TE McField Annex Field.
With Group B leaders Cayman Prep not playing after postponing their games against North East Schools due to their mid-term break, two goals from Diondre Wright in the 13th and 28th minutes was enough to defeat Prospect Primary, 2-1.
Wright’s 13 second strike was the quickest goal so far this season and one of the fastest scored in PFL history.
Prospect Primary’s Andrew Suberan drew his team level in the 26th minute after South Sounds’ goalkeeper Brandon Jackson parried a shot directly to the Prospect danger man.
Two minutes later, Wright broke free to hammer home the winner.
Prospect came close to levelling the score two minutes from time but Joshua Jackson blasted his long range drive off the crossbar.
In the earlier U-9 game, South Sound School’s Jake Booker scored in the 6th and 22nd minutes to secure a 2-0 victory over Prospect.
In the only other Group B games, Triple C beat Bodden Town, 4-0, (U-9; forfeit) and Triple C beat Bodden Town, 4-3, (U-11).
In the day’s second set of matches at the TE McField Annex, Group A’s Savannah and George Town shared the spoils as each school left the capital with a win apiece.
In the U-9 game, Savannah’s Jynu Jacob led his team to a 6-0 victory over George Town Primary after netting a first half hat-trick. Further strikes from Javon Clarke, Akiel Bodden and Jaquan Wray sealed the win.
In the U-11 encounter, missed opportunities and an own goal plagued Savannah’s efforts as they went down 2-1 to George Town.
Savannah’s Akiel Bodden scored and missed a penalty either side of half time and George Town’s Isaac Ebanks was involved with both of his school’s goals scoring the first and playing a major part in Savannah’s unfortunate own goal.
In other results from Group A Sir John A. Cumber Primary beat Truth For Youth, 3-0, (U-9) and Sir John A. Cumber’s U-11 side won 3-2 against Truth For Youth.
