Earlier this evening, Police United FC overcame a 2-1 goal aggregate deficit with a 2-nil win over the Placencia Assassins to book their spot in the 2015/16 Opening Tournament Finals Matchup. Police had come into the playoffs seeded #2 after finishing the regular season with 19 points but lost their 1st playoff game, 2-1, last Saturday night in Independence to the Assassins. Their victory today however, sent them into the Finals on a 3-2 aggregate.
Their opponents this time around will be the defending Closing Tournament champions, Verdes FC, who eliminated arch-rivals Belmopan Bandits with a 1-1 draw last night in Belmopan, advancing on a 3-1 aggregate advantage. The 1st game of the Finals comes up on Sunday, December 20th at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio.
