Monday, August 15th, 2022

On Sunday, August 14th, the San Pedro Pirates traveled to Belize City to play against Port Layola Football Club. The island’s premier football team could not return home with a victory and fell 2-1 against the Belize City team.
The game took place at the MCC Grounds stadium at 4PM. Port Layola, a young team in the current Premier League of Belize (PBL), was not an easy opponent. The island boys were surprised by a team that quickly dominated the game. Not only were they in control of the ball, but they even opened the score. By the second half of the game, Port Layola had a comfortable 2-0 lead.
The San Pedro Pirates’ Rayjan Jones scored the squad’s only goal. The team made several attempts to even the score, with no luck. At the end of the long whistle, Port Layola nailed their first victory in the tournament, while San Pedro registered their second defeat and dropped to fifth place in the PBL’s standings.  The Pirates’ technical team stated that this is concerning and will continue working hard and making improvements for their upcoming games.
Other games across the country saw Wagiya SC defeating Progresso FC 1-0. Verdes beat Benque United 1-0, while Altitude beat Bandits 2-0. The tournament continues with more exciting games this weekend as PLB rolls into its fourth week.
