By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Benque Viejo United and the Belmopan Bandits played to a scoreless draw on Saturday night at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen.
Both teams had been waiting for an opportunity to break the dismal start to the 2022 Premier League of Belize season but last night in Benque neither could take advantage. They put their best foot forward but in the end they neutralized each other.
Richard ‘Cheetie’ Jimenez did get the ball past goalkeeper Brando Anderson in the 27’ for Benque but he was ruled offside.
Benque United now have four points from a win, a draw, and three losses.
For the Bandits, who have been accustomed to being in the top sports spots, this is a shocking start. Last night they earned their first point in the opening season. A draw and four losses is their record now.
It’s rebuilding time in the Capital.
On Saturday, September 3, the Bandits will host Belize City’s Port Layola while Benque Viejo United will visit the San Pedro Pirates at Ambergris Caye.
