All the Age Group BDO Primary Schools Finals on Wednesday 22nd March, 2017, were fiercely competitive between teams of equal skill and discipline with a shared will to win, whilst showing great sportsmanship despite the final outcome.
Of course, there can only be one winner and in the U7’s, which got proceedings off to a great start in front of a large crowd in the Grandstand at the A.O. Shirley Ground, Cedar Green eventually won, 3-1, on penalties against Montessori, after the game had remained deadlocked at 0-0 until the final whistle.
The U9 encounter between Althea Scatliffe and Robinson O’Neal proved equally as pulsating with end to end action highlighting a game that was eventually decided by the predatory instincts of Latriel Williams.
A bouncing ball was only half dealt with by the defense allowing Williams to slip in between two defenders and volley home past the Goal keeper.
In the U12’s an acrobatic Nicky Haycraft goal in the second half proved to be the only goal of the game in Cedar’s 1-0 win over Begrado Flax.
The MVP’s for each Final were named as Ethan Mohammed for Cedar Green in the U7’s, Latriel Williams for ASPS in the U9’s and Haycraft of Cedar School in the U12’s.
Golden Glove Recipients were Steven Portus (Enid Scatliffe – U7), Akeem Paddy (ASPS – U9) and Ollie Henderson (Cedar Sch. -U12).
The Golden Boot Honorees were Sam Potgeiter (Montesorri, 24 – U7), Jaden Quashie (Robinson O’Neal, 18 – U9) and Azarni Callwood (Cedar School, 15 – U12).
The Overall League MVP’s were Charlie Potgeiter (Montesorri – U7), Quashie (U9) and Ryan Lettsome (Cedar School, – U12)
