Football: Sunset, Scholars take 2018/19 CIFA Charity Shield

Football made it’s triumphing return Sunday (28 October) as the women of Sunset Football Club along with Scholars International Sports Club’s men’s team took home the 2018/2019 Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) Charity Shield.

Women’s Charity Shield

Sunset FC 7 Scholars ISC 3

14-year old Molly Kehoe was a force to be reckon with, scoring four goals en route to Sunset’s 7-3 win over Scholars. Kehoe opened the scoring in the 8th minute, with Shenel Gall adding a second in the 15th to make it 2-0. Kehoe added her second of the game in the 27th minute, scoring the hat trick in added time to give Sunset a 4-0 lead at half.

Kehoe then opened the scoring minutes into the second half to put Sunset ahead 5-0. In the 55th minute, Elena Testori struck a Kehoe past Scholars keeper Kristina Seymour to make it 6-0. One minute later, Scholars finally got on the board when Susani Lucas struck from distance to make it 6-1. In the 73rd minute, Ericia Burke cut the lead to 6-2. In the 83rd minute, Sunset’s Shannelle Frederick took a solo run up the pitch and through a depleted Scholars squad, extending the lead 7-2. Scholars Gabriela Watler’s goal in added time closed out the game for a 7-3 final.

“It was a good game, we scored a lot of goals so that was a good sign” said Sunset’s Shenel Gall. “We need to work on our fitness, that showed a lot, but I guess overall we won the silverware, so that’s a good feeling.”

Men’s Charity Shield

Scholars ISC 4 Academy SC 2

Scholars Rolly Bodden netted a pair as the reigning CIFA men’s champions fought back from a 2-1 deficit to score three unanswered en route to a 4-2 win in the season opener.

In the 10th minute, Bodden opened the scoring when he gathered a cross and struck to make it 1-0. In the 30th minute, Academy’s Jamal Seymour answered striking a cross of his own to tie the game 1-1 before half. Early in the second frame,  Clayton Forrest headed a Jonah Ebanks cross past Scholars keeper Jermaine Brown for a 2-1 Academy lead. In the 51st minute, Scholars Dwight Dunk soared through the air, deflecting a Hermon Shedan Fisher-Gardner shot to level the score 2-2. In the 64th minute, a clinical set of passes freed Bodden in the box to make 3-2. Jordan Bonilla-Ramirez would add a fourth in the 70th minute to ice the game for a 4-2 win.

“Teamwork makes the dream work” said Scholars Roderick Pearson. “Once we come as a team, and play as a team, the task is easy. We went down in the game, we don’t put our head down. That motivated us, that drove us. A simple mistake, and we corrected it, and you saw the results.”

A full slate of games is scheduled for CIFA’s Premier League starting Saturday.
