Verdes beat Progresso 4-1 on Sunday and now lead the Premier League of Belize 2023-24 Closing Championship with 18 points. Coupled with Benque Viejo United’s 1-0 loss to Port Layola, Verdes’ lead has now increased to five points. Additionally, after winning six games, scoring eight goals, and conceding only one, Verdes are the only undefeated team in the Premier League of Belize.

Benque Viejo United are still in second position with 13 points from four wins, a draw, and a loss, but allowed Port to creep up on them. They’ve scored eight goals and bagged three. Up to last week they were undefeated, but their loss to Port Loyola cost them dearly.

The Belize City side are in third place with 12 points from four wins and two losses. Port have scored 13 goals and conceded seven.

Champions Altitude follow in fourth position with three wins, two draws, one loss from 4, a total of 11 points. They have scored eleven goals and allowed seven.

Wagiya moved up from the seventh to the fifth position after winning on the weekend. Their 3-2 comeback victory over the Bandits was their second win this season against four losses. They have scored eight goals and allowed 20 for a total of six points.

Progresso and the Belmopan Bandits are in sixth position with four points, edging the Bandits, who also have four points, by goal differential. Both teams have won one game, drawn one, and lost four. Progresso have scored 9 goals and conceded 12, while the Bandits have netted seven times and conceded 15. So, Progresso have the edge on a -3 to a -8 goal difference.

Benque Police are in the last position. Last season, they were fighting for the top spots but now they haven’t yet won a game. They’ve only earned one point from a draw while losing five games. Benque Police have only scored three goals and allowed 12.
