Mahogany Heights win Belize Rural Central’s Beverly Castillo Cup

LADYVILLE, BELIZE DISTRICT, Sun. May 29, 2016–It was just another politician sponsored local football tournament, this one, which began in mid-February, for villages in the Belize Rural Central constituency of UDP area representative Beverly Castillo; but it was football nonetheless, and when it reached the final series last Sunday, there were two villages from the ten that started, Hattieville and Mahogany Heights squaring off for the championship.

Hattieville Riverside Boys had already achieved big things for their village a few years ago, when their U-13 squad clinched the 2012 championship in the prestigious Smart 13 & Under, Mundialito at the MCC Grounds.

Like the new kids on the block, Heights teams have been regulars in the Smart Mundialito and other city based marathons and football competitions, including the annual CYDP Peace Cup. But until yesterday, Heights was yet to claim a championship.

Ladyville clinched third place when their opponent was a no show last Sunday, and Mahogany Heights took one step closer to the championship when they lodged a 1-nil win.

Yesterday, their fans energized with drums on the sidelines, the Mahogany Heights squad brought glory and happiness to their village, when they came out big winners, 3-0, in the championship final, to take the tournament trophy and the $1,500.00 first prize money.

In a preliminary U-13 exhibition, Wataplat’s Ladyville Jaguars clipped a 1-nil victory over Winty J’s Mahogany Heights U-13.
