Placencia drills Wagiya in back match, keeps playoff hopes alive

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Nov. 2, 2017–Last night, in a Week 11 back match at the M.A. Stadium in Independence, home standing Placencia Assassins crushed visiting Wagiya from Dangriga by a 6-1 margin. Six Placencia players scored 1 apiece, Gabriel Ramos (15’), Ashley Torres (26’), Alexander “Pleck” Peters (30’), Luis “Baaka” Torres (59’), Delone Torres (76’) and Jaden Garbutt (88’); while budding super-striker Krisean Lopez (24’) got the lone goal for Wagiya, who are now out of playoff contention. (See updated standings and upcoming schedule below.)

The remaining regular season schedule looks favorable for BDF, with matches against Wagiya and Freedom Fighters remaining; but “any number can play.” Police, San Pedro and Placencia each have two very tough games left, but Police have a 3-point edge on their closest contender for the remaining two playoff spots. Bandits* and Verdes* are already in the Top-4 playoffs.
