National U13 semifinals Leg 1 results; Leg 2 on Tenth, not 11th

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Sept. 8, 2022

Leg 1 matches of the semifinals in the Football Federation of Belize’s (FFB) National U13 Boys Elite Championship were held this past Saturday, September 3, at the Ambergris Stadium in San Pedro and the Carl Ramos Stadium in Dangriga. The 8 regional champions of the country had been divided into two groups of 4; and after four weeks of group games, the top 2 teams from each group have gone on to the home-and-away semifinals.

In first-leg semifinal action at the Ambergris Stadium on Saturday, the visitors scored first, but the San Pedro U13 home team eventually prevailed 3-2 over Cayo U13. Goal scorers for San Pedro were Adolfo Coy (33’), Michael Richards (49’) and Daniel Caliz (52’); while Cayo had a goal each from Marlon Meza (18’ PK) and Jared Garcia (55’).

Meanwhile, in the other Leg 1 semifinal at the Carl Ramos Stadium, it was the visiting Belize District U13 coming away with a 3-1 win over Stann Creek U13. Netting a goal apiece for Belize District were Christon Linarez (22’), Gillygion Nunez (28’) and Jacob Joseph (24’ PK); while the lone goal for Stann Creek was by Jayden Martinez (46’).

Searching around on Facebook, we were frustrated until we eventually went to the page of BDFA chairman Stanley Jordan Reneau, where we found some more information on the semifinals Leg 2 schedule in an advertisement format as follows:

FFB U-13 National Tournament Semi-Finals 2nd Leg:

Saturday, September 10, MCC Grounds

2:00 p.m. – Belize U13 vs Stann Creek U13

Entrance fee: $2.00

But when we checked on the FFB Facebook page, they had both Leg 2 semifinals scheduled for September 11: “Week 6 Semifinal Leg 2 September 11, 2022”.

To clear up our confusion, we called Eulalio “Lalo” Coc, an executive member of the Belize District Football Association (BDFA) and coach of the Belize U13, who forwarded to us a flyer showing both Leg 2 semifinals scheduled for September 10. So, it’s football on the Tenth in 2022. “Lalo” said they had to keep it on the Tenth because of clashes with the use of the fields on Sunday for PLB games.

Below is from the FFB flyer we received.

FFB U-13 National Tournament Semi-Finals 2nd Leg:

Saturday, September 10

2:00 p.m. – Belize U13 vs Stann Creek U13 – MCC Grounds

Entrance Fee – $3.00

2:00 p.m. – Island Boyz U13 vs Cayo U13 – Norman Broaster Stadium

Entrance Fee – $3.00.
