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.

OWFA president Ladrick Shepard and Football Federation of Belize president Sergio Chuc presented the winners’ trophy to Caribbean Rum Boyz captain Harlan Casanova and a $1,000 prize.

Apart from Osorio’s acknowledgment of Best Player in the Final, the OWFA also awarded individual trophies to three other Caribbean Rum Boyz’ players.

Camilo Sanchez received the Most Goals Trophy, Richard Gillett captured the Best Defender award, while the Best Midfielder was claimed by Ricky Valdez.

Guinea Grass won three individual awards. Miguel Yco was voted Best Forward, Eric Santoya got the Best Goalkeeper, while Israel Canul was voted Best Manager.

Guinea Grass received their sub-championship trophy from Shepard and National Sports Council Director Ian Cal. Guinea Grass also received a $500 prize.
