By Aaron Humes: The Premier League of Belize returned on July 27 for its 2019 opening season and this week’s second round of matches comes after defending champions Belmopan Bandits’ 3-1 loss to Deportivo Saprissa of Costa Rica.
On Saturday the capital’s finest took out their frustrations on Placencia Assassins with a 6-0 win, braces (2 goals apiece) by Jeffrey James and Stephen Martinez and a goal each from Humberto Requena and Gabriel Ramos. The other match was a scoreless draw between San Pedro Pirates and Altitude F.C. of Independence.
This afternoon, Verdes of Cayo edged Wagiya of Dangriga, 1-0, while Defence Force shut down Freedom Fighters/Valley Pride 2-1 at the M.C.C.
Last week’s results were: Wagiya 1-0 Freedom Fighters/Valley Pride (Gilroy “Bredda” Thurton 75’); San Pedro 0-2 Belmopan Bandits (Jerry Palacio 33’ & 45’); Placencia Assassins 3-2 Altitude F.C. (Charles Leslie 2’, Justin Linarez 18’, Elroy Coe 81’; Elmore Godoy 6’, Jose Urbina 35’; and Verdes F.C. 2-1 B.D.F. (Edwin Bernal 23’, Elroy Smith 59’ (P); Jesse August 86’ (P)).
