By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Benque Viejo United (BVU) are atop the Premier League of Belize standings, at least momentarily, after beating Wagiya 3-1 at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium in Benque Viejo del Carmen on Saturday night.

However, Wagiya responded nearly immediately, tying the game in the 61st on a goal by Oziel Martinez.

But another Colombian, Sebastián Valencia put BVU ahead 2-1 in the 69th minute.
