Bodden Town hosts Elite in top-of-table clash

Elite's Miguel Simm collects the ball as BTFC's Andre McFarlane lurks in their last meeting.

It’s the stuff fans of the game live for – a clash of the top two teams in the league and both with something to prove coming off recent disappointments. Bodden Town FC and Elite SC meet on Sunday, 12 March, in the headlining clash in the Cayman Islands Football Association’s fixture list for the weekend.

Bodden Town sits seven points clear of Elite atop the Cayman Premier League table, though Elite have a game in hand. The guys in purple have the most miserly defence, allowing only 11 goals through 14 matches, while Elite’s high-flying offence has scored 29 goals in their 13 games.

Disappointment for Bodden Town recently came in the CIFA President’s Cup Final, where they lost 4-1 to Scholars International. On the other hand, Elite is back home after surrendering 11 goals in their three losses of the Caribbean Club Championships campaign.

When they last faced each other on 27 November, Elite walked away with the 2-0 win, as they moved into the top spot. Since then, Bodden Town has been the more consistent side.

If coach Greg Ebanks’ side is to have any shot at the league title they let slip away from them at the end of last season, they know they must take points from Bodden Town when they meet at the Haig Bodden Playing Field at 7:00 p.m.

In other games Sunday, Sunset FC faces Academy Sports Club at the Annex at 4:45 p.m. That will be followed by Latinos FC vs Cayman Athletic at 7:00 p.m.

The game between Scholars International and Roma United has been postponed, as Scholars leave Monday for the Caribbean Club Championships group play in Puerto Rico.

In the First Division, table-toppers Future Sports Club faces Savannah Tigers in Bodden Town at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, 11 March, while at the same time Cayman Brac FC hosts North Side SC. At Ed Bush Sports Complex in West Bay, Elite SC and East End United play at 5:45 p.m., followed by George Town SC and Academy SC at 8:00 p.m.

There’s also a full slate of youth games in the boys and girls U13 and U11 leagues.
