Triple B and Ladyville Jaguars, nil-nil in Game 1 of Women Football Finals

It had been postponed for a week due to some players performing with the National Team in Honduras at the UNCAF Women U-20 Championship, and on Saturday, August 31, at the MCC Grounds in Belize City, Game 1 of the Atlantic Bank National Women Football Finals finally got under way, ending in a nil-nil stalemate between Ladyville Jaguars and Triple B of Belmopan.

The decisive Game 2 will reportedly be this coming Saturday, September 7, at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan. And Ladyville will be without the services of their two biggest stars. Captain Shanell Gentle was red-carded at the 73rd minute of Saturday’s Game 1; and their outstanding sweeper Sarah Arzu is scheduled to report for training duty with the Coast Guard, and might therefore also be unavailable for Game 2 this coming Saturday.

The cards are therefore now stacked heavily in favor of Triple B. It is a pity, because the level of female play was at a really high standard on Saturday last, and fans were looking forward to a really exciting Finals Game 2. Ladyville players and fans are complaining that the postponement has hurt their team and favored Triple B, as they had already known about Sarah’s training commitment with the Coast Guard.
