ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – All the Age Group BDO Primary Schools Finals held on Wednesday March 22, 2017 were fiercely competitive between teams of equal skill and discipline and a shared will to win.

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 Grounds, 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 goalkeeper.

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 Bregado Flax Educational Centre (BFEC).

Awards

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 Honourees were Sam Potgieter (Montesorri, 24 – U7), Jaden Quashie (Robinson O’Neal, 18 – U9) and Azarni Callwood (Cedar School, 15 – U12).

The Overall League MVP’s were Charlie Potgieter (Montesorri – U7), Quashie (U9) and Ryan Lettsome (Cedar School, - U12).

In addition to all the Primary School trophies, the BVI Football Association’s High School Champions also received their awards with Jakisha Rigobert (BFEC) named as Girls MVP, Kaylah Skelton (BFEC) and Lilly Pierce (Cedar) jointly as Golden Boots (10 each) and Davian Williams as Golden Gloves.

BFEC are League Champions

BFEC were also crowned League Champions.

In the Open High School Boys, BFEC added the League Championship Trophy to the Avanell ‘Clarky’ Morton Cup and also saw Diego Jimenez (BFEC) named as MVP as well as Golden Gloves winner, whilst Chadwick Evans (ESHS) took home the Golden Boots Trophy.

In the U14 Tournament, ESHS were declared Champions and, along with the Trophy, were also presented with the President’s Cup, which they won as part of Opening Day celebrations back in October 2016.

The Golden Boot winner was Jahdique Winchester (BFEC), MVP was Sheldon Harry (ESHS) and the Golden Glove winner was Glenford Prentice (ESHS).

    The Montessori kids never had a chance. What a shame, they had to play against a whole establishement. , the referee was not fair, and because the Montessori coach was a cedar student looks like he was gagged. Not a word to the kids, what a shame, I am not a parent any Montessori kid but it was not fair, I now understand wha it means to cedar, win at whatever costs,

      I'm not sure what game you were watching. Both teams played really well. A tough, fair match ending in a 0-0 draw! Cedar took the win on penalties, but Montessori can be proud of making it hard for them! More pride and support. Less conspiracy theories!

      at Montessori.

      It was a good game, and Cedar have put in immense effort to improve over the course of the season, training three times a week with dedicated coaches. Note that Montessori kids (and others) are also welcomed to Cedar based coaching sessions.

      Earlier in the season, Montessori thrashed Cedar. Hard work paid off. Montessori will be back, but don't come here with your negative thoughts and claim it was some kind of fix. Cedar outplayed them and then won the lottery of penalties.

      This is such an unfortunate comment. Criticism of a Cedar student who volunteered his time to coach Montessori students all season and who did an impressive job, showing commitment, dedication and caring for his players crosses any kind of line of reasonable decorum. And to suggest that Cedar's community service program is an elaborate ruse to enable it to win U7 football matches is equally bewildering. Such comments say much more about Sandy above than they do about Cedar or any school.

      You forgot to mention the very very bad hombres, the bigly crowd and that Cedar wiretapped Montessori to get some intel as to game strategy. Disaster, disaster. Get a grip Sandy.

      Are you serious. It's U-7's for goodness sake. The game went to penalties. How does the ref have bias in a penalty shootout? Also, the Montessori coach was a Cedar student doing community and service. Do you really think that someone coaching really has that much of an influence on what the kids do on the field? Theyre 6 and 7 years old and run after the ball, they aren't able to understand tactics. These kids are U7s, genuinely what is wrong with you.
