San Pedro Pirates F.C. prepares for FFB Top League’s closing season

The island’s football club, the San Pedro Pirates, is gearing up for the closing season of the Football Federation of Belize’s (FFB) tournament- FFB Top League set to start February 5, 2022. The island’s squad is scheduled to play against Caesar Ridge F.C. on February 6th at the Beaton Isidoro Stadium in the capital city of Belmopan. Due to the pandemic, the tournament will host all games in Belmopan with six participating teams- San Pedro Pirates FC, Altitude FC, Caesar Ridge FC, Garden City FC, Verdes FC, and Wagiya SC.

At the closing of the first round of the competition on November 21, 2021, the San Pedro Pirates lost to the Verdes. However, the island squad did well and was among the top three teams in the FFB Top League. The FFB Top League was put in place rather than the Premier League of Belize (PLB) pending a court matter at the Supreme Court of Belize. PLB is expected to take back the aspects of these yearly competitions after they sort out their legal issue. The tournament is FFB’s goal to fulfil the requirement of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association- FIFA to be fit for future competitions of The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football or CONCACAF. The San Pedro Pirates have been training for their first match, doing all necessary polishing to improve their game strategy and produce a better outcome at FFB Top League closing season.

San Pedro Pirates starts FFB Top League with a win

The Football Federation of Belize’s (FFB) Top League Closing Season 2022 is officially underway, and on Sunday, February 6th, the San Pedro Pirates Football Club began their season with a 1-0 victory over Caesar Ridge. The game took place at the FFB Stadium in the Capital City of Belmopan. San Pedro Pirates will be facing Verdes on February 26th at the Ambergris Stadium at 6:30PM. Only a limited number of fans will be allowed to enter the stadium.

The game against Caesar Ridge was a tight one, with neither of the teams giving up much ground. The majority of the match saw the island team pressuring Caesar Ridge. Then, at minute 37 of the first half a set of passes between Mario Chimal and Horace Avila set young player Ian Pou in front of the Caesar Ridge’s goal. Pou calmly handled the play and with a strong cross shot, scored San Pedro’s winning goal. This was the only goal of the game, giving San Pedro Pirates their first three points of the FFB Top League Closing Season.

San Pedro Pirates nets another win and advance in the FFB Top League

On Sunday, February 20th, the San Pedro Pirates netted another victory after defeating Altitude FC 1-0 at the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) stadium in the capital city of Belmopan. The island team is now preparing to host a home game on Saturday, February 26th, against the league’s top team Verdes at the Ambergris Stadium at 6:30pm.

San Pedro Pirates’ latest win has catapulted the island boys to second place in the competition. This win was not easy as they faced a strong team, Altitude, who did not give the island players many opportunities in the game’s first half. At the end of the first 45+ minutes, the match was goalless. The island squad was more aggressive in the second half and further pressured the Altitude defense. These efforts were still proving difficult to get through the Altitude’s barrier. Then, during minute 71, a Pirate centered a ball into the goal zone, perfect for a header. Altitude’s goalkeeper left his safe area and went for the ball. However, Alejandro Carillo made it first to the ball and headed it into the goal, scoring for San Pedro. This was the only goal for the match, and San Pedro Pirates returned to the island with another win in its records.

San Pedro Pirates grab third place at FFB’s Top League closing season

The island’s major football team, San Pedro Pirates, ended in third place in the closing season of the Football Federation of Belize’s (FFB) Top League, following their 6-0 victory over Garden City. In second place and sub-champions of the competition was team Altitude from Stann Creek District, while team Verdes from the Cayo District emerged as champions, finishing the championship undefeated. The closing games took place over the weekend on Saturday, April 23rd, and in San Pedro Town, a large crowd showed up at the Ambergris Stadium to support their team. Although some rain almost overshadowed the fun game, fans enjoyed each goal scored by the Pirates. With most of the goals made in the second half, the island footballers met the threshold to fight for second place in the closing season of the FFB Top League. But they needed more than just meeting the threshold; Verdes, who at the same time were facing Altitude in Independence Village, needed to win. This win would benefit the Pirates; however, that did not happen.

San Pedro closely followed the game between Verdes and Altitude. It was a nail-biting 90-plus minutes hoping for a Verdes win. Altitude held back, and although Verdes left their hearts on the pitch, the game ended scoreless. With the 0-0 draw, Altitude moved up to grab second place in the tournament with a total of 18 points, while San Pedro Pirates settled for third place with 17 points. Verdes finished the season with 28 points and were champions once again.
