By Rubén Morales Iglesias: As the Premier League of Belize’s Closing Championship goes into Week 2, Benque Viejo United get prepared to take down another giant. Last week, the Benque side surprised champions Altitude 1-0 in Independence and on Saturday they mean to take down their immediate rivals Verdes.
Verdes didn’t start off very well on Wednesday night as they were only able to salvage a 0-0 draw against the Belmopan Bandits, but they were, at least, able to ward off a defeat.
The match is scheduled for 7:30 pm at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen.
The other Saturday match between the San Pedro Pirates and Wagiya starts at 7:00 pm at Ambergris Stadium in San Pedro. The Pirates got off to a good kick off last weekend blanking Progresso 2-0 while Wagiya were pounded 0-5 by Port Loyola, so they mean to stay on the winning edge.
On Sunday, Progresso host Champions Altitude at 3:30pm at the People’s Stadium in Orange walk Town. Both got off to a bad start last week. Progresso fell 0-2 to the Pirates while Altitude were downed 0-5 by Benque Viejo United. So, both are in dire need of a victory.
The fourth weekend match features leaders Port Layola against the Belmopan Bandits at 4:00 pm or Sunday at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex Belize City. Port Layola had a great start last week rolling 5-0 over Wagiya. While not nearly as good, the Bandits collected a point on Wednesday night as they held subchampions Verdes to a scoreless draw. Port mean to solidify their lead but the Bandits mean to stunt their progress.
