By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Neither Escuela Secundaria Técnica México (ESTM) boys or Orange Walk Technical High School (OWTHS) girls who claimed the National Secondary Schools Sports Association’s Football Championship at Ambergris Stadium in San Pedro on February 18, 2023, will not be present at this year’s competition that kicks of on Thursday in Dangriga.

Last year, the OWTHS girls won the NSSSA Championship over Saint Ignatius High School of Santa Elena with a 2-0 victory,  while the ESTM boys won the national crown with 2-1 win over Benque Viejo del Carmen’s Mount Carmel High School (MCHS) in the final.

Those two Northern schools were this year replaced by the ESTM girls and the Muffles College (MC) boys who won their regional competitions.

The other teams competing are Gwen Lizarraga High School (GLHS) boys and girls from the Central zone, Belmopan Comprehensive School (BCS) girls and Belmopan Baptist High School (BBHS) boys from the West, and Independence High School (IHS) girls and Delille Academy (DA) boys from the South.

This year, the competition will last three days instead of the traditional two and will go from Thursday to Saturday with the teams playing in a round robin format. All teams will play three games and the champions will be the teams with the best record.

The Southern Secondary Schools Sports Association (SSSSA) is the host of the double competition which will see four games per day at the Carl Ramos Stadium in Dangriga. (See schedule).

The opening ceremony is scheduled for 12:30 pm on Thursday, followed by the first game between Belmopan Comprehensive School and Escuela Secundaria Técnica México girls at 1:00 pm.
