By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The finalists of the NBB-AIC organized by the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) will be decided on Sunday, in the two semifinal matches featuring Griga Conquerors-Progresso in Dangriga and San Pedro Conquerors-Club Atlético in San Pedro.
The Griga Conquerors host Orange Walk’s Progresso FC at 4:30 pm at the Carl Ramos Stadium while the San Pedro Conquerors host Belmopan’s Club Atlético at 5:00 pm at the Ambergris Stadium.
The Griga Conquerors took the lead as they beat Progresso FC 3-2 in the first leg at the Louisiana Football Field in Orange Walk on Sunday, July 24. Clinton Logan scored for the Conquerors in the 37’. Zamir Figueroa tied the ballgame in the 55’ and hit again in the 70’. The Conquerors got even and recorded the win on a brace by Jose Valdez in the 79’ and 88’.
The San Pedro Conquerors had to come from behind in Belmopan at the Isidoro Beaton on Saturday, July 23 after Wilfredo Galvez nailed the opener in the 16’ for Atlético. The Conquerors evened the score with a low shot by Jose Aquino in the 36’. Then went ahead again 2-1 in the 45’ +1 when Tyler Rowley made a backward pass. The ball was intercepted by Roberto Nah who nailed the keeper.
In the 51’, Julian Maldonado tied it 2-2 for Atletico. But, Nah decided the match in the 86’ when he hammered the ball off a cross from the right side past the goalkeeper, a defender, and one of his own teammates for the 3-2 win.
Initially, the FFB had planned a one-shot semifinal, but after the quarterfinals they changed gears and switched to a home and away format, so Progresso and Atlético lived to see another day.
