Home team Wagiya, after that 11-nil shutout from the Belmopan Bandits, has learned a lesson on how to stay focused, and has proven that to their home fans after a 4-2 victory over P.G.’s Freedom Fighters and a 2-2 draw with Belize Defence Force FC.

This Sunday, March 19, the young, talented Wagiya will be on the road inside Belize City’s MCC Grounds against F.C. Belize. The running, gunning youths from Wagiya said this Sunday will be their first road win.

The Dangriga home fans are all filled with joy, and are confident that their home team, Dangriga Dream Ballers definitely can bring home the championship in Dangriga this season.
Home team Dangriga Dreams Ballers will also be on the road this weekend, inside the town with all the pride and joy, Orange Walk Sugar City, taking on Orange Walk Running Rebels on Saturday night. This game here will be “by-any-means” a victory for Griga Dream Ballers.
