BELIZE CITY, Mon. Sept. 4, 2017–Well, except for a back match between Kulture Yabra and Pickstock Lake-I Veterans, the regular season for the FFFB National Over-40 Tournament 2017 was completed this past weekend; and the 4 playoff bound teams have been determined. (See standings below.)
Scoring details are hard to come by, but our source says that “big bad” Bent Burgess returned to action for Mango Creek Veterans in that important final game on Saturday night at the M.A. Stadium, where they secured the 3-2 victory over visiting Benque Vets FC. Bent scored 1 and Wayne Castillano netted 2 for Mango Creek.
On Sunday at the MCC Grounds in Belize City, San Pedro Veterans made light work of BDF Veterans, crushing them, 6-0. Meanwhile, Pickstock Lake-I was a no-show in Belmopan, where the Belmopan Veterans got the (3-0) win by default. And at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio, Kulture Yabra Veterans made sure of their spot in the playoffs with a 7-2 win over San Ignacio Quintas.
The Top-4 playoff teams are therefore: San Pedro Veterans, Mango Creek Veterans, Kulture Yabra Veterans, and Benque Vets FC.
