Montserrat earned its first win in more than five years with a 1-0 home triumph over Belize at the Blakes Football complex before an energetic crowd.
The two teams traded scoring chances in the first half, with the home side coming closest only to be denied by Belize GK Woodrow West, who made a number of excellent saves.
Montserrat kept plugging away though and it found the game’s lone goal in the 74’ with what could go down as the goal of the tournament. Spencer Weir played a one-two combination with Adrian Clifton that saw Spencer collect a ball on the left edge of the area and curl a picture-perfect right-footed shot into the top right corner of the net.
Weir called the win one of the best experiences of his life.
It was Montserrat’s first victory since May 2014 when it defeated Bonaire in 2014 Caribbean Cup Qualification. Montserrat is now 1W-0D-1L, 2GF 2GC, while Belize is 1W-0D-1L, 4GF 1GC.
