By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Premier League of Belize (PLB) champions Verdes downed Police Benque (Club Deportivo Benque) 3-1 at the Edmund Marshall Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen on Thursday night and continue commanding the 2023-24 Opening Season.
At the same time, the Green Machine eliminated Police Benque from making the playoffs and for all intents and purposes Verdes practically secured a playoff berth. The only statistical reason why Verdes can’t yet officially claim their playoff berth is because fifth place team Altitude drew and now total 16 points. With three games remaining, Altitude can reach 25 as well.
But with 25 points, Verdes distanced themselves from their two immediate competitors, Progresso and Port Layola by four points as the two of them drew last night.
Krisean Lopez opened the hostilities for Verdes, Eugene Martinez followed with the second, and Trimayne Harris completed the triple.
Colombian Sebastian Valencia discounted for Police Benque for the final 3-1 score.
Police Benque have put up a good fight this season but two games short of completing the regular season, they find themselves out of the playoff picture with just 13 points as fourth place Benque United are out of reach with 19 points.
