Cayman Prep repeats as PFL U11 champions

The climax of the 2017 CUC Primary Football League saw a rematch of the previous season’s final between Cayman Prep and Cayman International School, with the eventual result seeing Cayman Prep retain their title.

The schools initially took to the pitch at the Annex on Saturday, 9 December. With CIS leading thanks to a deflected Jake vanDevelde free kick, the match was abandoned after 35 minutes as a heavy downpour enveloped the Annex Field and quickly flooded the already saturated playing surface.

Organisers said as the downpour continued, the decision to replay the game on Tuesday, 12 December was agreed to between the two coaches and PFL officials.

When the teams returned to the Annex, the intensity was there and spurred on by parents who turned up for the rare weekday final. A first-half goal from Jaxon Cover gave Cayman Prep a lead it would not surrender despite constant effort from their CIS rival. Two years running, it was Cayman Prep beating CIS in the final to take the top prize.

In the Under 11 Champions Cup third place game on Saturday, Red Bay Primary emerged as victors following a 3-1 defeat of St. Ignatius. Goals from David Arch Jr., Jayden Wright and Myron Cruz sealed the win for the 2016 Under 11 Consolation Cup runners-up. With the game ending in the midst of a downpour that started to flood the field, both teams celebrated the end of the season by diving on the soaked pitch and appeared to enjoy every minute of it.


Cayman Brac secured their first significant piece of PFL silverware albeit a runners-up trophy after going down 2-0 to a determined Triple C team. A strike from Tarik Douglas and an unfortunate own goal was enough to seal the win for Triple C in the Consolation Cup finals.

Following the final trophy presentation on Saturday, the youth officials who handled the majority of games this season were honoured by the PFL and GPFL coaches. Youth officials included Kandre Amerally, David Connolly, Jonathan Holness, Alex Dailey, David Franco, Albertini Holness, Matthew Rich, Shakur Welcome, Alexia Bromfield and Shay Windsor.

In addition, Chastine Rankine, Shirley Amerally and Andrew Holness were honoured for their assistance with coordinating the officials throughout the regular season and playoffs.

Organisers thanked Gatorade and Progressive Distributors for their continued sponsorship of the CUC PFL and GPFL.
