By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Caribbean Rum Boyz downed Guinea Grass 3-2 to capture the Orange Walk Football Association (OWFA) 1st Division championship at the Louisiana Government School Football Field on Sunday.
Guinea Grass got ahead early when Charles Tillett recorded the game opener in the 9th minute after a fumble by a defender.
But thereafter, Caribbean Rum Boyz took over. Camilo Sanchez hit a brace, scoring in the 30th off a penalty kick and another 53rd from close range for a 2-1 lead. The Finals MVP Irvin Osorio secured the game and championship with a 40-yard floater in the 70th minute.
But Guinea Grass fought back and got a second goal from Miguel Yco who converted a penalty-kick in the 79th for the final 3-2 score.
