By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “CRFC first ever win at the Top League. John King you must be smiling in Heaven Bro. Thanks for your presence on the pitch today,” wrote Caesar Ridge on social media after shocking Garden City 2-1 at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan on Sunday evening.

Just the night before, someone shot their player John King and killed him in Belize City. So, when Caesar Ridge took to the field they were aiming for a win not only for themselves, but also for their fallen brother.

And win they did on goals from Michael Palacio and Gilroy ‘Bredda’ Thurton. A come-from-behind win it was for the Belize City side as they had to rally after allowing an early goal to City’s Wilfredo ‘Buddy’ Galvez.

Caesar Ridge are still in last place, but now they have four points, one shy of Wagiya. That means they now have a good opportunity of jumping out of last place as their final game will be against Wagiya at their home field, the MCC Grounds in Belize City on Sunday, April 24.

For Garden City, losing meant they now have no possibility of catching up with the San Pedro Pirates with their nine points, but Wagiya’s loss to Altitude ensures they’ll finish in fourth place. Coincidentally, their final match will be precisely against the Blue Tsunami, as the Pirates are also called, at San Pedro on Saturday, April 23.
