By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Desmond Wade pulled out a hat-trick to lead National Champions to a 4-0 whipping of the Belmopan Bandits in the Premier League of Belize (PLB) at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium in Belmopan on Sunday.
Wade scored on the 24’, 44’, and 63’ while Argentine Facundo Garnier added another in the 76’.
The Belmopan Bandits, who’ve had their worst season ever finishing last, may have regretted reminding Verdes that they, the Bandits, have more championships than them.
Verdes manager Lorin Frazer said Verdes have more championships in head-to-head finals’ encounters having won three out of five in reference to the championships Verdes won over the Bandits in the Closing Championship in May 2015, Opening Championship in December 2017, and Opening Championship in December 2019.
The win secured Verdes’ second position in the PLB’s Opening Championship giving the home field advantage over the San Pedro Pirates who were held to a 2-2 by Progresso. Verdes will play the second of the two-game semifinals at home in Cayo on Sunday, November 13.
