By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Stann Creek’s Holy Ghost RC clinched the National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Football Championship held on Thursday and Friday at the People’s Stadium in Orange Walk Town.

Most Valuable Player Shanalee Smith converted a hat trick under rain, leading Holy Ghost from Dangriga to a 3-0 victory over Belize District’s Our Lady of Lourdes RC from Maskall in the National Primary Schools Football Final.

The Cayo District’s Santa Elena RC captured third place with a 3-1 penalty-kick shootout win over Orange Walk’s Santa Cruz after regulation time and extra time ended in a scoreless draw.

In Group A, Santa Elena started out with a 1-0 win over Corozal’s Church of Christ on a goal by Kenisha Guerra. Then, Holy Ghost defeated Church of Christ 3-0 on goals by Smith, Eleanor Thomas, and Jasha Lamb. In the final group game, Santa Elena and Holy Ghost drew 0-0 with Holy Ghost qualifying as the top seeded team and Santa Elena as second seed.

In Group B, Our Lady of Lourdes drew 0-0 with Santa Cruz. Toledo’s Forest Home and Santa Cruz also drew 0-0. In the third game, Our Lady of Lourdes defeated Forest Home 1-0 on a strike by Demika Jones.
