By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize lost 3-2 to Guatemala in the final Group B game for both countries on Wednesday at the Malcolm Beach Soccer Facility in Nassau in the 2023 Concacaf Beach Soccer Championship. The win was good enough for Guatemala to advance to the knockout stage.

Raymond Ramos and Kenen Castillo scored for Belize. Ramos’ goal was scored when Guatemala were ahead 2-0 and Castillo when the Guatemalans had taken a 3-1 lead.

Belize finished the competition with three losses after falling 4-2 to Mexico on Monday and 6-2 to the Bahamas on Tuesday.

Kenyon Martinez and Castillo scored two goals each in the competition. The other goals were from Ramos and Jaheim Mena.

While Belize lost all the games, the worst being against the Bahamas, the team was more competitive than many others who were blown away, such as the United States pounding the Dominican Republic 11-1, the 10-1 whipping El Salvador put on Guadeloupe, or the 10-2 win by Costa Rica over Turks and Caicos.

The scores on Wednesday were much better than the previous two days as the biggest win was 7-1 by El Salvador over Costa Rica in Group A. In that group’s other match Turks and Caicos Islands downed Guadeloupe 5-3.

In Group C, the final two matches were rather even with Trinidad and Tobago edging the Dominican Republic 3-2 and the United States getting past Panama 2-1.

In the final first round match, Mexico edged the Bahamas 5-4 to top Group B with nine points. They are followed by the Bahamas (4), Guatemala (3), and Belize (0).

El Salvador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bahamas, Guatemala, United States, Panama, and Trinidad and Tobago qualify to the knockout stage.

In Group A, El Salvador finished first with nine points ahead of Costa Rica (6), Turks and Caicos (3), and Guadeloupe (0).

The United States won Group C with nine points, followed by Panama (6) Trinidad and Tobago (3), and Dominican Republic (0).

El Salvador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bahamas, Guatemala, United States, Panama, and Trinindad and Tobago qualify to the knockout stage. The champions and subchampions will advance to the 2023 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup
