By Rubén Morals Iglesias: After a hard-fought game, the San Pedro Pirates prevailed 3-2 over Port Layola at the San Pedro Ambergris Stadium on Saturday night in the Premier League of Belize’s (PLB) Opening Championship.
Andir Chi excited the local fans in the 23rd minute but in the subsequent play in the 24th, Jose Tinoco inserted the ball into his own net to tie the game at 1-1.
However, Horace Avila made sure the Pirates finished the first half ahead as he scored the go-ahead goal in the 45th minute for the 2-1 San Pedro lead.
Luis Valdez then made it 3-1 in the 66th minute.
Port Layola fought back and shortened the lead to 3-2 in the 85th through the efforts of Calvin Young.
The San Pedro Pirates retain the third spot with 17 points, two less than Verdes, but with one game less.
Port Layola, with ten points, dropped to the seventh as Benque United slipped past them with their 2-0 win over National champions Verdes.
