By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Altitude let go the opportunity to take the lead in the first leg of 2023-24 Opening Season Finals allowing Port Layola to get away with a 0-0 draw at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium in Independence on Saturday night.

Port were missing two key players, their captain Ian Gaynair and their leading goalscorer Gilroy ‘Bredda’ Thurton.

Gaynair sat out the match due to a red card received in the semifinal against Verdes

Thurton fractured his right ankle in the semifinal against Progresso, and is not only missing out on the Finals but may have to rest the entire 2023-24 Closing Season.

Altitude was full force as their captain Dellon ‘Dee Breezy’ Torres recovered from a left knee injury he had been nursing.

Both clubs fought hard at ‘The Majestic’ as folk in the Mid-South call the Michael Ashcroft Stadium, but couldn’t come up with a goal.

Now they prepare for the second and definitive leg at Belize City’s Marion Jones Sporting Complex on Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24.
