By Ruben Morales Iglesias: Benque United beat Verdes 2-0 on Saturday night putting an end to Verdes 44-game undefeated run.
The National champions had not lost nationally since October 2019. Plus, they had only lost once in the last 54 games since July 2019.
Benque Viejo United came out strong against the champs at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen in Week 10 of the Premier League of Belize’s (PLB) Opening Championship. Juan Ocampo converted the first goal for Benque United in the 26th minute with Ayrton Sisa sealing the win in the 90’+2.
Verdes had faltered in the previous game just barely managing a 1-1 draw against Progresso and on Saturday they went blank in their first loss in three years.
They also relinquished first place to Altitude who now have 21 points, two more points than the champs, with one game in hand.
Benque United recorded their second consecutive win. Now with 11 points, they moved up to the sixth position in the PLB past Port Layola, who they beat 3-1 last week and who fell again on Saturday, this time 3-2 to the San Pedro Pirates.
