Flurry of goals in FA Cup matches

Kailan Miller (12) fires a shot at goal for Cayman Athletic.

A total of 21 goals were scored in four Cayman Islands Football Association senior men’s FA Cup first round games played Sunday, 28 May, with last year’s winners Elite SC along with Cayman Athletic, Bodden Town FC and Scholars International all booking spots in the quarterfinals.

These games were played seven weeks after the other half, which were halted due to an altercation between a match official and a coach that led referees and assistant referees to go on strike. Upon their return to the pitch, regular league matches took precedence, hence the nearly two-month delay.
