By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Port Layola qualified for the Premier League of Belize 2023-24 Closing Championship playoffs with a 2-0 victory over Progresso at Marion Jones Sports Complex in Belize City on Sunday.

Latrelle Middleton gave the lead to the Belize City side in the waning moments of the first half scoring in the 45’+4.

Back from a broken leg injury, Gilroy ‘Bredda’ Thurton scored the second goal, securing the victory for Port Layola, in the 82nd minute. What a coincidence that his return in the same stadium where he got his leg broken and against the same team.

Progresso had the opportunities, particularly through the efforts of Andir Chi and Horace Avila, but they were consistently denied by Belize Men’s National Team goalkeeper Charles Tillett or the crossbar.

Port now have 23 points and have qualified for the playoffs along with Altitude and Benque Viejo United, who also won on the weekend.

Meanwhile, the loss leaves Progresso 15 points and out of the qualifying picture.
