San Pedro Pirates prepare for PLB's first Closing Season game


The Premier League of Belize's (PLB) Closing Season championship starts on Saturday, January 14th, and the island's elite football team San Pedro Pirates is preparing for their first game. The island premier league will face Progresso FC at the Ambergris Stadium on Saturday at 7:30PM. The San Pedro Pirates ended PLB's Opening Season last year in third place followed by Progresso FC in fourth. The last time the Progresso team was on the island, the game against Pirates ended in a draw, thus many believe the game on Saturday should be very interesting. The island boys are busy this week working on their last preparations and getting ready to officially introduce their team members.

The islanders came so close to the Opening Season tournament finals, and players are eager to emerge triumphant this season. The Pirates fell short to team Verdes on November 20th, missing the opportunity to advance to the finals, which took place between team Altitude and Verdes. Ultimately, Altitude emerged as champions, while Verdes were crowned sub-champions, placing San Pedro Pirates in third place. The island team looks forward to working differently this time to try to bring a second championship home, similar to their triumph in May, 2019.

San Pedro Pirates start PLB Closing Season with a win

The island's premier football team, the San Pedro Pirates, started the Premier League of Belize's (PLB) Closing Season with a 2-0 win against Progresso Football Club. This is a similar score the island boys netted against Wagiya SC at the beginning of PLB's Opening Season in August 2022. The game occurred at the Ambergris Stadium south of San Pedro Town on Saturday, January 14th. The island fans saw a Pirates team trying to dominate the match from the first minute. The visiting team was no easy feat, but the San Pedro Pirates kept the pressure and tried to be the dominant team at their home game. At minute 23, Mario Chimal netted the first goal for the island team.

The island boys' second goal came before the game's first half ended. At minute 43, Argentinian Facundo Garnier, who was playing with Verdes FC, put the Pirates in a 2-0 lead. Those were the only goals during the 90+ minute game. In the second half, both teams went hard against each other, but the 2-0 score remained unchanged, and at the end of the long whistle, San Pedro Pirates emerged victorious.

The San Pedro Pirates will host another home game at the Ambergris Stadium on Saturday, January 21st. All San Pedro fans are invited to come out and support the island team as they aim for another win.
