By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The ZBoys FC beat Succotz United 3-0 to take a sizable lead in the doubles semifinals of the Benque 1st Division Championship.
Brayan Cuellar opened the lead in the 4’ for the Z-Boys at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen on Sunday, according to Benque Viejo Football Committee vice-chairman Heraldo Ramcharam Jr. Nahjib Guerra extended the lead to 2-0 in the 50’ and Kayser Tut sealed the 3-0 Verdes Jrs’ win in the 70’.
The ZBoys finished second during the 1st round of the championship with seven points ahead of Succotz United by goal differential.
The return and definitive match will be played on Sunday, May 15, at 2:00 pm at the same venue. That game is to be followed at 4:00 pm by the second semifinal between Benque Verdes Jrs and Santa Cruz. Verdes Jrs lead that semifinals 2-1.
The entrance fee is $5.00 for both matches.
The Z-Boys will reach the final directly even if they lose by two goals.
Succotz United would have to win by four goals to get to the finals directly. A three-goal win would tie the semifinals and send it to penalty kicks. No extra time will be played.
A minute of silence was observed before the two semifinal matches this past Sunday in Benque in memory of Chris Rodriguez of Cayo’s World FC who died last Wednesday after being stabbed at San Ignacio’s Norman Broaster Stadium on Tuesday evening.
