Thousands tuned in and watched the game unfold and to one’s surprise at half time, Belize held its self together and trailed 1-0. That goal came in the form of a penalty.

Honduras missed the first ‘freebie” that came in the form of a penalty.Going into the second half, the Belize defense and offense picked up a bit but was not enough to pull off the win. The game ended in favor of Honduras 2-1, but the Belizans put in a good run and we say kudos!
