By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “Proud Belizean Moment,” said the Football Federation of Belize after Belizean Men’s National Team (BMNT) defender Deshawon Nemhard and his team South Georgia Tormenta FC won the 2022 USL League One Finals on Sunday.
“It’s always a proud day when Belize can join in the celebration of an athlete and see our flag being proudly represented! “
Nembhard, playing with number 12 on his back as left back, played the entire final in which South Georgia Tormenta won 2-1 over the Chattanooga Red Wolves at the Optim Sports Medicine Field at Tormenta Stadium in Statesboro, Georgia. Both teams were in their first-ever League One Final.
The South Georgia Tormenta Ibises defeated Charlotte Independence in the Quarterfinals ahead of eliminating Greenville in the semifinals. The Red Wolves had put out defending champions Union Omaha and top-seeded Richmond Kickers.
Tormenta finished third in the regular season while the Red Wolves were fourth.
South Georgia won the USL League One in just their fourth season and the first postseason appearance.
Nembhard has played three matches for the BMNT.
