The island boys delivered an impressive performance at Marion Jones, dominating their opponents in the competition organized by the National Sports Council. The road to the championship started with their 1-0 victory over the St. John Vianney Roman Catholic team. With this win, they secured their ticket to face the Queen Square Anglican team. The final match in the District Tournament saw the San Pedro boys crushing the Queen Square Anglican boys 2-0, with goals netted by Jayden Bradley and Ilmer Santoya.
