San Pedro Celebrating Caye Caulker Women's Football Team

The boys have always dominated the different sports across the island, but now the girls are holding their own against them! Caye Caulker’s Women’s Football team (that’s soccer for the Aussies and Americans) have been training hard every night and as a result have been kicking some serious butt in the last few competitions!

On Sunday crowds gathered to watch Caye Caulker (decked out in purple) and San Pedro battle it out on the field during the sweltering midday sun. But despite the heat the girls from these rival teams played hard and never gave up. By the end of the day Caye Caulker came out on top winning all their games – including the last match which they won 5 – 1 – taking out first place in the competition. Everybody watching from the sidelines were cheering and jumping around when the final whistle was blown. We were all very proud of the girls and what they had achieved. It was great moment where island came together in support.

The two San Pedro teams were then left to fight it out against each other for second and third place.

It’s great to see so many ladies from the island getting involved in some competitive sport and hopefully it will encourage others to get involved as well. They are a very talented group of players and if they keep training as hard as they are they will only continue to improve.

We will make sure that we keep you update on any upcoming competitions as well so that you are also able to show your support and share in their success :)
