By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The traditional Benque Viejo del Carmen veterans vs youth year-end football match will be played today, December 31 at 3:00 p.m. at the Edmund Marshalleck Stadium.
The match between the players of the old generation and the new generation is played this year in memory of doctors Kevin and Kenneth Guerra who died last year from COVID-19. Both, known as “Los Cuaches” because they were twins, were avid soccer players. They played for Benque teams including Verdes and for the Belize Junior National Team.
The two brothers, much appreciated at Benque Viejo del Carmen, also played the youth teams’ end-of-year game.
The first of these games was played 25 years ago. Although the Vets have won more games, in recent years the game has ended in a draw.
The match only features players born in Benque or living in Benque.
Players such as Erwin Contreras, Errol Coleman, Cesar Mendez, Rene Montero have played regularly.
This year, expect to see Cesar Mendez, Shamir Pacheco, Amin Cano and maybe Jorge Garcia, to name a few of the older guys.
The Youth will star Owen Sosa of Verdes, Desmond Wade, Jaylon Lennan and Moises Martinez of San Pedro to name a few as well.
