By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The stage is set for the decisive match of the Premier League of Belize 2023-24 Opening Season, as Port Layola and Altitude face off at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City on Sunday, December 24, at 4:00 pm. The Finals Series is level after a scoreless draw in the first leg in Independence.

Port Layola has the home advantage, but they will miss their star striker Gilroy ‘Bredda’ Thurton, who scored three goals against Altitude in the regular season. Thurton is out with a fractured ankle he suffered against Progresso in the semifinals. However, they will welcome back their captain Ian Gaynair, who missed the first leg of the Final on a one-game suspension for a red card he received in the same semifinal in which Thurton got injured.

The two teams had a win each facing each other in the regular season. In the opening week on Saturday, August 5, Altitude won 4-3 at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium in Independence, with Dejmeri Pop scoring twice (12’, 37’) and Andrés Orozco (55’) and Jardehl Muschamp (83’) adding one each. Port Loyola replied with goals from Thurton (64’), Jesse August (72’), and Shedrick Swazo (90’+4).

In the second round on Sunday, October 1, Port Layola avenged their defeat by beating Altitude 3-1 at the Marion Jones. Thurton netted two goals (18’, 90’+4) and Latrell Middleton (57’) scored the other. Muschamp (32’) was the only scorer for Altitude.
