Over-40 reg. season “down to the wire;” 3 teams battle for 2 playoff spots

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Aug. 31, 2017–It’s the final week of regular season in the FFB National Over-40 Tournament 2017, and the Top-4 teams to make the playoffs could be decided this weekend. League leading San Pedro Veterans (27 pts) and second place Benque Vets FC (25 pts) are both sure of a playoff berth; but the remaining 2 spots are still up for grabs. (See standings below.)

In games this past weekend, San Pedro Veterans dropped Belmopan Veterans, 3-0, in San Pedro; Kulture Yabra drew, 4-4, with Mango Creek Veterans at the MCC; Benque Vets FC clipped BDF Veterans, 3-2, at the Amin Hegar Field; and San Ignacio Quintas shut out Pickstock Lake-I Veterans, 4-0, at the Norman Broaster Stadium. (Scoring details not yet available)

Week 14 schedule:
Saturday, September 2
7:30 p.m. – Mango Creek Veterans vs Benque Vets FC – M.A. Stadium
Sunday, September 3
4:00 p.m. – BDF Veterans vs San Pedro Veterans – MCC Grounds
6:00 p.m. – Belmopan Veterans vs Pickstock Lake-I – Isidoro Beaton Stadium
6:00 p.m. – San Ignacio Quintas vs Kulture Yabra – Norman Broaster Stadium

NOTE: One back match remains between Kulture Yabra and Pickstock Lake-I. Lake is definitely out of playoff contention. Kulture could secure a spot with a victory on Sunday in San Ignacio. Even with a loss, Kulture still has a game in hand. Belmopan Veterans must win against Lake to secure 24 points, and then hope that Mango Creek or Kulture loses.
