footballFootball fanatics from the village of Guinea Grass came out in numbers yesterday afternoon, with matrakas, horns and fire crackers in hand, for the grand finale of the “Copa De Reyes” football tournament organized by the village council. For the past three months, seven teams battled it out on the field hoping to gain first place in the tournament. But as is reality, there can only be one winner and that team was selected yesterday. Organizer of the tournament Roosevelt Rodney and Village Council member Sylverio Hernandez hoped for a great final game.

The Guninea Grass Village Council is an independent council but council members say they have always been able to count with the full support of Orange Walk South Area Representative Jose Abelardo Mai. At the same time, the council is grateful to the community for their unwavering support in their annual tournaments.
