American football game, Caribbean Bowl III, planned for Jacó Saturday

A visiting U.S. American football team will take on the Bulldogs of Santa Ana Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Garabito Stadium at Jacó Beach.

The Costa Rican team will include players from the Federación de Fútbol Americano de Costa Rica teams: Toros, the  Pérez Zeledón Predators and the San Jose Titans.

The game is the Caribbean Bowl III. The visiting team is the All American Football Events USA Patriots. They have been here before.

The Patriots crushed the Bulldogs, 68 to 6. at the inaugural Caribbean Bowl I, hosted on the grounds of ULatina in Heredia but took an unexpected loss, 13 to 6, the following year from the Bulldogs at the Caribbean Bowl II, also held in Jacó Beach.

The Patriots have returned once again to Costa Rica to take revenge on the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs players have the advantage of being acclimatized to the coastal heat that seemed to affect the Patriots playing ability last year.

There is a 2,000 colon admission, which will be donated to the Jacó girls’ soccer program, said organizers.
