By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belmopan Bandits may not be having their best season but on Saturday night they were able to celebrate a 3-2 victory over Benque Viejo United at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium in the capital.
Even though they were playing at home, the Bandits were not the favourites, considering Benque Viejo United had recently downed National Champions Verdes in the Premier League of Belize (PLB) championship a couple of weeks ago. But, tonight, the stars accompanied the Bandits guiding them from the heavens above and at the end they collected their second set of three points this season.
Though they are still in the cellar, the Bandits now have eight points, and they may just be able to close the season with double figures.
Yilmar Rentería converted the opener for the Bandits in the 27th minute. Jalen Myers made it 2-0 in the 50th minute off a well-placed powerful free kick.
Then Rentería scored in his own net to give Benque United their first goal putting the score at 2-1.
But the Bandits were not to be undone and Myers secured the win with his second goal of the match in the 62nd minute.
Benque United pressed forward and cut the distance when Devon Makin shook the net in the 70th minute, but after that, the 3-2 score remained unchanged. The Bandits had recorded their second victory this season.
