By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Benque United flogged Wagiya 4-1 at the Carl Ramos Stadium in Dangriga in the final game of the Premier League of Belize (PLB) Opening Championship’s regular season wiping out whatever slight hopes Wagiya had of qualifying for the semifinals.
Even though Wagiya manager Nelson Moss didn’t entertain any hopes because the possibility was ever so slim, he wanted to finish the season with a good performance at home. However, things went haywire at the Carl Ramos on Sunday as the squad fizzled out in front of a cocky Benque Viejo United side which not only whipped Wagiya but was able to skip them over and Port Layola as well to finish fifth in the competition.
Carlton Thomas opened the score in the 14th minute on Sunday. Kayser Tut made it 2-0 in the 42nd before the half-time break. Thomas completed his brace in the 70th minute before Brayan Cuellar hit the fourth goal in the 80th.
Wagiya was able to salvage a consolation goal in the first minute of injury time on a goal by Erwin Middleton.
As things turned out, October was a disastrous month for Wagiya dropping from fourth to seventh place after being stuck at 14 points since October 2 when they beat Progresso 1-0. After that game, they tipped over falling four consecutive times: 1-2 to Altitude, 0-2 to Verdes, 0-1 to Port, and 1-4 to Benque Viejo United.
Now, both squads will rest a bit, sit and watch the PLB semifinals, enjoy the FIFA World Cup, and then get ready for the Closing Championship in January.
