Week 1 correction
A report from the FFB secretariat gives a correction to the names of scorers in the Week 1 game between Estrellas and Pomona United that Pomona won, 3-1. It was Jevon Aranda who scored the two goals for Pomona United in the 12th and 40th minutes, and not Hilbert Smith as previously reported.
