After about 10 weeks of competition, the local football tournament is over and Team Legends has claimed the first place trophy. The competition was jointly sponsored by Shalom Church, the San Pedro Town Council and the Caye Caulker Water Taxi, and it saw nine teams start in the competition, leading to the final first, second and third places. The top three winners took home trophies, medals and cash prizes. Winning the opening Marathon back in June Legends started their winning streak pretty early. Legends also won the SP Belize Express football tournament earlier this year, and after weeks of playing, now has the bragging rights as champion of the Shalom, CCWT and SPTC Football Tournament.
Held on Sunday July 29th at the Ambergris Stadium, the games were scheduled to start at 1:30PM. Going up for third place was supposed to be Harmouch and Nairi. However, after a 45-minute wait on Team Nairi, officials named Harmouch third place winners by default. A little after 3PM it was time for Legends and Belizean Shores to go head to head for first and second place.
