By Rubén Morales Iglesias: National Champions Altitude got away with a late 2-1 win over Benque Viejo United at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen on Saturday night.
The match was the first of the second round in the Premier League of Belize.
Ashley ‘Tosa’ Torres ignited the intense match at the Marshalleck in injury time at the end of the first half, but Danny Jimenez leveled the score to 1-1 in the second half.
The match appeared headed to an undecided conclusion, but Colombian striker Andrés Orozco blasted the net toward the end to give the champions Altitude the three points.
Altitude now move up, though temporarily, from sixth to fourth place with 12 points while Benque United fell from fifth to sixth.
Benque’s Sammy Sosa won’t be able to play the next game as he was red carded.
