United FC and Los Catrachos move onto final rounds of FFB’s Inter District San Pedro league


The Ambergris Stadium was packed with cheering fans this past Sunday, December 16th as four teams battled it out to see who would move onto the finals for the FFB’s (Football Federation of Belize) Inter District San Pedro League. Squaring off in the second leg of the home and away semifinals tournament was: Suga Boys United, United FC, Los Catrachos and Captain Shark’s Veterans.

In the first game played at 1:30PM, United FC gave Suga Boyz a whopping 4-0 game, garnering them a shot at the finals. The second game around 3:30PM was a bit tighter, with the Veterans giving Los Catrachos a run for their money in a game that ended in a score of 3 – 2 in favor of Los Catrachos.
This means that Catrachos and United FC will square off in two weeks of competition on January 6th and January 13, 2013. The games will be played in a home and away format where the winner must win both games or in the case that that doesn’t happen – a goal point average will be taken to choose the winner.
At any rate, both teams will move on to Belize City to compete against other District teams for a chance to represent the Belize District in 2013’s Inter District competition. This however, might change as San Pedro is working very hard to create their own association, which would need a representative in the Inter-District competition. If they accomplish this, then the winner of this tournament will automatically move on to represent the San Pedro Football Association in the FFB’s Inter District competition. This will take some effort, and anyone who wants to lend a hand is asked to contact Fuljencio “Fully” Hoare at 604-8015.

The home game is scheduled for Sunday, January 6th at 3PM. Both teams are excited and driven to go for the win. These games promise to be action packed, providing for great entertainment. Football fans are invited to come out and show some love. A donation of $5 is welcome to assist in operational costs. Any entities wishing to team up with the organizers to provide promotion as well as food and drinks on sale at the finals are also welcome to contact Fully to find out how that can be arranged.
