Mayor’s and Minister’s Cup hold second round of games
Thursday, January 7th, 2016
The San Pedro Sports Council held the second round of games for the Mayor’s and Minister’s Cup on Wednesday, December 23rd at the Honorable Louis Sylvester Sporting Complex. Island football fans enjoyed a fun night of football as the last two games of the year brought much enthusiasm. The tournament ended the year with two energetic matches between Jokers against San Mateo and Ambergris Divers against Catrachos.
The first match started at 7PM and saw The Jokers facing San Mateo. The exciting match saw San Mateo team opening with a score. Jokers answered with a goal, determined to take the win away. But by the end of the second half, San Mateo had scored, taken the lead and ended beating Jokers with a clean score of 3-1.
At 9PM the second game began between Ambergris Divers and Catrachos. This was a heated game which escalated to a few yellow and red cards until it came to an abrupt stop. One of Team Catrachos’ players was expelled from the game, the rest of the team decided not to continue playing, forfeiting the match. As a result, Ambergris Divers won the game by default.
With these victories, both Ambergris Divers and San Mateo are leading in their respective sections, group #3 with three points each. In Group #2 Veterans and Peace Makers are on top, while in the Group #1 Progresso Boys are fully in the lead.
The action continues this weekend with games starting on Friday, January 8th at 7PM. Belize Pro Divers will face Ambergris Divers, followed by Jokers versus Catrachos. Then on Saturday, it’s San Pedro Junior College facing San Mateo with a second game between Searious Warriors and PSG. The sporting action will continue on Sunday beginning at 3PM, with Peace Makers taking on Veterans and Progresso Boys facing Sky Energy Team.
