By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Verdes routed Progresso 3-0 at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio on Sunday capturing the Number One seed in the playoffs of the Premier League of Belize’s 2023-24 Opening Season.

Verdes totalled 28 points and are unreachable though they are the only team that has clinched a playoff spot so far. Progresso got stuck at 21 with one game remaining but are still in the four-team fight for the three remaining playoff berths.

The game started at a fast pace, as both sides tried to impose their style and create chances. Verdes had more possession and control but couldn’t get past the Progresso defensive lock until they broke through in the 43rd minute when Mexican Marco Zavala scored a stunning goal.

Verdes took the lead and the momentum into the break and came out pumping for the second half. Their offensiveness paid off as they doubled their lead on a goal by Uruguayan Nicolás Rocha making it 2-0 in the 55th minute.

Progresso tried to react, but they couldn’t get past the Verdes defense.

The Green Machine sealed the win and the number one seed in the 90’+5, when Trimayne Harris chipped the ball into the net.

The final whistle blew, and Verdes celebrated their victory and their achievement. They blanked Progresso 3-0 and clinched the number one seed in the playoffs. They had also sent a message to the rest of the league: they are the team to beat.
