The Premier League of Belize 2018-2019 Closing Season competition is fast winding down with only one more week of play in the regular season.

Over the last week of play, both the defending champions Bandits Sport and its arch nemesis Verdes FC, remained in contention with both picking up much needed wins.

On Saturday 13th April, at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium in Belmopan, the defending champions Bandits Sport blasted the visiting Police United FC by the score of 4-1.

In the first half of the game, the defence for both teams did not allowed any goals to score and went into the intermission dead locked at 0-0.

It was not until well into the second half of the game that the host team Bandits Sport was the first to make it onto the scoreboard when Daniel Jimenez scored the 1st goal of the game in the 61st minute of play to give his team a 1-0 lead. That lead was then increased when Trimayne Harris scored his team’s 2nd goal of the game in the 65th minute of play for a 2-0 lead. The lead was further increased when Trevor Lennan scored his team’s 3rd goal of the game in the 78th minute of play for a 3-0 lead. However, the visiting Police United FC finally made it onto the scoreboard when Marlon Meza scored his team’s only goal of the game via a penalty kick in the 86th minute of play to cut the deficit to two goals to bring the score to a 3-1 game.

Georgie Welcome then made it a 4-1 game when he scored the Bandits Sport final goal of the game in the 90th minute of play for the win.

Meanwhile, at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium in Independence Village, the visiting Verdes FC also returned to its winning format when it defeated the host team Assassins Altitude by the score of 3-1.

The host team Assassins Altitude FC was the first to make it onto the scoreboard when Andres Orozco scored his team only goal of the game in the 51st minute of play via a penalty kick that give his team a 1-0 lead. However, that lead was short-lived as the visiting Verdes FC tie the score at 1-1 when Elroy Smith scored his first of two goals in the 60th minute of play via a penalty kick.

Verdes FC then took a 2-1 lead when Elroy Smith scored his 2nd goal of the game in the 83rd minute of play via another penalty kick. The lead was further extended when Desmond Wade scored his team’s 3rd goal of the game in the 89th minute of play for the big win.

The Closing Season competition then continued on Sunday 14th April with two more games on the schedule.

At the Ambergris Stadium in San Pedro Town, the hottest team in the Premier League of Belize, the BDF FC edged out the league’s leading San Pedro Pirates FC by the score of 2-1.

The visiting BDF FC was the first to make it onto the scoreboard when Kyle Budna scored the 1st goal of the game to give his team a 1-0 lead.  The lead was then extended when Camilo Sanchez who for all intent and purpose seems to be the most prolific goal scorer on the team scored his team’s 2nd goal of the game in the 36th minute of play for a 2-0 lead and what proved to be the winning goal.

It was not until the closing minutes of the game that the San Pedro Pirates were able to make it onto the scoreboard when Luis Mencias scored his team only goal of the game in the 84th minute of play to cut the deficit into half. But it was too little too late.

And at the Victor Sanchez Union Field in Punta Gorda Town, the Freedom Fighters defeated Wagiya Sporting Club by the score of 5-3.

The Freedom Fighters were the first to make it onto the scoreboard when Mathew Ricketts scored the 1st goal of the game in the 8th minute of play to give his team a 1-0 lead. The lead was increased when Jaren Lambey scored the 2nd goal of the game in the 9th minute of play for a 2-0 lead. The visiting Wagiya Sporting Club then made it a 2-1 game when Highking Roberts scored his 1st of 3 goals in the 19th minute of play for a 2-1 game.

The Freedom Fighters lead was further increased when Tyler Peters scored his goal in the 21st minute of play for a 3-1 lead. Highking Roberts then made it a 3-2 game when he scored his 2nd goal of the game in the 27th minute of play to bring Wagiya SC within a goal of tying the score. The Freedom Fighters maintained its lead in the game when Jaren Lambey scored his 2nd goal of the game in the 30th minute of play for a 4-2 lead. Once again, the visiting Wagiya SC made it a 4-3 score when Highking Roberts scored his 3rd goal of the game in the 41st minute of play to bring his team once again within a goal of tying the score.

The first half of the game ended in favour of the home team Freedom Fighters by the score of 4-3.

However, in the second half of the game, Tarel Flores scored his team’s 5th and final goal of the game to give his team the 5-3 victory.
