Dolphins win first game of the season; Islanders suffer worst defeat in the season

Though they have been defeated from the start of the tournament, the Dolphins walked on the field determined to win their first game on their home turf. When the whistle blew at 2:30 PM in the hot sun, Dolphins made their fist attempt against FC Belize. In less than a minute of the game, Rudolph Flowers capitalized on his opportunity giving the home team a one zip lead. Moving into the second half of the game, both team made numerous attempts inside the sixteen yard box. Despite their attempts, after the 90 minutes of regular playing time, Dolphins kept their one nil lead over the visiting team. The final score was San Pedro Dolphins one (1), FC Belize nil (0). On Sunday Wagiya of Stann Creek will be hosting San Pedro Dolphins in a 4:00 PM game.

Turning to the Belize Bank Super League, the San Pedro Islanders visited San Felipe Village in the Orange Walk District where they faced Barcelona on Thursday night. That game was a back match but was postponed twice. During the first half, the Island boys were down three to nil against Barcelona. In the second half, Barcelona players were merciless against the Islanders and slapped in eight more goals. At the end of the game, Barcelona had won 11 to nil (0) over the Islanders.
