Belize Bank are football champs!

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

The Liquor Box series of the five-a-side football competition came to a dramatic close as the Belize Bank football crew stunned the E&L crew to take the title of the Liquor Box series. Last Friday’s action was to crown the competition winners and third place was played between the Lebanese ‘Harmouch’ and Madisco.
And in the ‘ultimate clash of the titans’, a monster match-up between Belize Bank and E&L butane crew ensued and proved to be some of the best football of the season. In the end, Belize Bank defeated E&L in a game that ended 5-2.
Belize Bank walked off with $750 in cash plus team trophy, E&L received $500 plus team trophy whilst third ‘Harmouch’ settled for $300 plus team trophy. The ‘Harmouch’ team gave back their winnings and contributed it as a donation to the San Pedro Roman Catholic School.
This match was an exciting one and the Lebanese proved to not only play the game but win as well; they defeated Madisco 6-3 to take third place in the competition. On behalf of Pablo Ico and the Sports Council special thanks go out to Mr. Jim Jensen for sponsoring the Liquor Box Series.
