Hattieville sweeps Chetumal in Friendlies at MCC

The Monarchs Football Club of Hattieville, in association with Hattieville United Youth Sporting Club (HUYSC) and the Belize District Football Association (BDFA) hosted two international club friendly matches at the MCC Grounds on Saturday afternoon, November 3, preceding the Inter-District quarterfinal game between Brown Bombers of Belize City and Progresso FC of Orange Walk. (Bombers won that game, 1-nil.)

The visiting Cumbres Dif club from Chetumal, Mexico, brought U-17 and U-23 teams, under coach Eduardo Cabrera, to play against HUYSC U-17 and the Hattieville Monarchs squad, respectively. According to a member of their coaching staff, the Dif U-17 is the 3rd Division amateur champs of Chetumal; and the other team is a U-23 amateur selection from Chetumal.
In the first game, despite well orchestrated team play on the part of the visitors, they were overcome by the speed and athleticism of the HUYSC U-17 players, who prevailed, 4-2, with John King and Devaughn Zuniga netting 2 goals apiece for Hattieville. (Yes, that is the same John King who would play for F.C. Belize on Sunday in the PLB game against Belmopan Bandits.)

It was a similar outcome in the U-23 game, although Club Dif took a 1-nil lead into half-time. The visitors showed some good passes, but the speed and individual talent of Hattieville Monarchs eventually prevailed, and it ended 3-1 in favor of the Monarchs, with Faisal Ahmad netting twice and Ralph Spain once for the winners.
