Heavy rains may have caused the postponement of the last quarter final between St Georges and Althea Scatliffe Primary School in the BDO U12 League, but not before Cedar School were victorious in their match ups.

Cedar White braved the early rain to overcome Bregado Flax 3-2 on Penalties after normal time had ended 3-3.

Ariel Mohammed slotted home the coolest of strikes to secure the win after some great saves by Matthew Harris between the sticks and following T’Khoy Richardson giving BFEC the lead in the first minute of the game.

Remi Clarke and Sebby Santos sent Cedar into the half time break with a slender 2-1 advantage. Sheldon Tony made it 2-2 early in the second half, Nici Haycraft restored the lead and then in the 40th minute, Richardson’s second made it 3-3.

Then came the penalty drama as the sides remained deadlocked, both goalkeepers made saves and scored in the sudden death nerve wracking finale to the game, before Mohammed sealed her team’s place in Monday’s (30th November) semi final.

In that semi final they will be taking on their School Mates as Cedar Green “G” overcame Robinson O’Neal Primary 4-0, with goals coming from Gethin Jones (2), Azarni Callwood and  Darci Reich.

Reich settled the nerves with a sublime curling effort in the 7th minute, Callwood doubled the lead in the 14th and Jones delivered the coup de grace in the second half as torrential rain soaked the Baughers Bay field.

The two Cedar School teams will play the first semi final on Monday, followed by the re-arranged quarter final between St Georges and ASPS and then on Tuesday the winner will take on First Impressions Primary for a place in Wednesday’s Final.
