The first championship under the newly formed top football league of Belize will come to an end on Saturday May 12, 2012, at the Football Federation of Belize Stadium in Belmopan, when the Police United takes on the Placencia Assassins.

In the first game of the two games series played on Saturday May 5, out at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium in Independence Village, the home team Placencia Assassins edged the previously undefeated Police United by the score of 2-1 to take a 1 game lead in the championship series.

The Placencia Assassins were the first to get on the scoreboard when Luis Torres scored the 1st goal of the game in the 35th minute of play to give his team an early 1-0 lead. That lead was further increased when Ashley Torres scored his team’s 2nd goal in the 43rd minute of play for a 2-0 lead.

It was not until the second half of the game that the mighty Police offence was able to penetrate the Placencia Assassins’ defence when Evan Mariano scored his team’s only goal of the game in the 84th minute of play to cut the deficit in half.

At the sound of the long whistle it was indeed a 2 -1 victory for the Placencia Assassins.
