BELIZE CITY, Mon. Jan. 7, 2019– It is almost a foregone conclusion, the 2018-19 CYDP Peace Cup championship, after yesterday’s 6-1 shelling unleashed by Barrack Road FC upon Ladyville Strikers FC in game 1 of the best-of-two games finals series at the MCC Grounds.
It was billed as a clash between the young newcomers from Ladyville and the seasoned semipro veterans from Belize City; and the veterans certainly had the upper hand, netting 3 goals in each half, while Ladyville’s only goal came from the penalty spot just before half-time.
Shaking the net for Barrack Road FC were #7 Harold Thompson (7′ & 38′), #9 Steven “Breds” Baizar (14′ & 72′ PK), #18 Clinton Jorgenson (84′) and #11 Kevin “Motto” Alvarez (90′); while the sole tally for Ladyville was a penalty conversion by #99 Sean Young (44′ PK).
The tournament culminates this Saturday at the MCC, starting at 1:00 p.m. with the third place game, followed by game 2 of the championship finals. In the award ceremony following the championship final, trophies, prizes and individual awards will be issued.
