Rained out PLB games pushed forward to this weekend

BELIZE CITY, Mon. Nov. 16, 2015–Premier League of Belize (PLB) Manager Wilhelm Miguel informed us today that all the games cancelled due to rainy weather over the past weekend, will be played this coming weekend, pushing back the schedule by another week. However, the 18th night scheduled back match between Placencia Assassins and Verdes FC remains as scheduled. (No date has yet been announced for the Bandits vs Verdes back mach.)

There had been some rumors over the weekend that the BDF vs Police United game would have been played at the MCC on Sunday, but those rumors have been dispelled. “No way will anybody get us to play at the MCC in its present condition,” asserted Police United’s “five star general” Aaron “Gambis” Gamboa on Krem’s Press Cadogan sports show on Sunday morning. That match will still be the most important one this weekend, as BDF absolutely needs a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive. (See standings below. Only 4 teams will qualify to the playoffs.)

We need to make a correction from our Week 8 report on the goal scorers in the Police United 7-0 drubbing of Wagiya which appeared in our edition of Wednesday, November 11, in story titled “Police lead the standings at Week 8 of PLB 2015-2016 Opening Season.” Brandon Cacho was erroneously credited for one of the Police goals in the first PLB report; which was subsequently corrected and the goal assigned to Byron Chavez. (See leading goal scorer chart below.)

Upcoming back match:
Wed. Nov. 18 (Week 6 back match)
7:30 p.m. – Placencia Assassins FC vs Verdes FC – Michael Ashcroft Stadium
