By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Benque Viejo United overwhelmed Benque Police (Club Deportivo Benque) 3-1 in the Benque derby on Saturday at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium.

The victory pushed Benque Viejo United to 22 points in the standings and drove them close to their goal of advancing to the Premier League of Belize playoffs.

As the whistle blew, Benque Viejo United got off with blistering speed nailing Police Benque in the third minute off a strike by Norman Anderson. Then, Andres Makin made it 2-0 in the 16th minute.

Police Benque fought back, not wanting to be blanked as in the first round when they lost 3-0 and scored in the 38th through the efforts of Mexican Juan Felix Ocampo.

But Benque Viejo United meant to get at least one more, as goal difference could very well be necessary down the stretch and got it when Moises Hernandez shook the net in the second half for the final 3-1 win.

With 22 points, Benque Viejo United are momentarily in second place one point ahead of Progresso and Port Layola who play on Sunday.

With one game left for them, the Benque side are six points clear of Altitude, who have three games left considering they have a back match against the Belmopan Bandits. Benque United are now hoping Altitude falter today against Wagiya at the Carl Ramos Stadium in Dangriga.

The other Sunday games feature Port Layola hosting Bandits at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City and Verdes clashing with Progresso in the hottest Week 13 game at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio.

All three games kick off at 4:00 pm.
