By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Verdes celebrated wildly as they booked the second ticket to the Premier League of Belize Finals after dropping the San Pedro Pirates 3-2 at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio on Sunday. The Green Machine reached the Finals on a 5-4 aggregate score having drawn 2-2 in San Pedro two Saturdays ago.

Darrel Myvett put the Green Machine up 1-0 in the 14th minute with a header extending a shot by Mexican Christian Ramirez. Then, in the 27th minute, Verdes’ hottest striker in the last few games, Desmond Wade, headed in a ball set by Colombian Camilo Márquez Fajardo.

Horace Avila powered a header in the 42nd minute to put the Pirates within reach at 2-1.

Trimayne ‘Pepa’ Harris then slammed the ball on the crossbar for Verdes just before the half. That may not have gone in, but he made good in the 58th minute from within the box when he received a serve from Wade.

Pirates forward Mexican Erick Izquierdo Roman converted from a header in the 66th to put the ball game at 3-2.

San Pedro pushed for the equalizer knowing that a 3-3 would give them the ticket to the Finals by virtue of away goals, but Verdes were able to ward them off securing the 5-4 aggregate win.

They’ll now face Altitude in the Finals. The Southern club qualified on Saturday after edging Progresso 1-0 and winning 3-1 on aggregate. The first match will be played on Sunday, November 27 in Cayo and the definitive Final in Independence on Saturday, December 3.
