In the opening game (4:00 p.m.) of a double-header at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio, it was also 1-1 between Real Verdes Veterans and visiting Roaring Creek Veterans.  David Trapp (17’) gave Real Verdes the early lead, but Vidal Medrano (85’) got the late equalizer for Roaring Creek. The 6:00 p.m. nightcap saw home standing Santels United Veterans prevailing, 2-0, over BDF Veterans, with a goal each from Carmen Tun (19’) and Lionel Carrias (70’).

At the MCC Grounds (4:00 p.m.) in Belize City, Kulture Yabra Veterans suffered their first loss to fellow city team, Plaza Veterans, courtesy of a second half free kick by Paul “Fabulous” Bradley (61’). (Kulture had beaten Plaza, 6-1, in their first round encounter.)
