Sports Monday: Interoffice Basketball Competition Kicks Off

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

The 2016 Interoffice Basketball Competition presented under the Belize District Basketball Association roared into action Friday night with 2 heavy weights looking to get off on the good foot in the season opener as Heritage Bank took on Belikin at Bird’s Isle. Kurt Burgess gets the Bank rolling, making use of this loose ball to finish with a good looking finger roll. Rico Black, sponsor, manager and owner of semi-pro San Pedro Tiger Sharks suited up for Heritage and guess what, he sinks the triple. At the other end, Belikin comes up with the reply courtesy of Naphtali Waters. Of course if you’re a Belikin fan, you would want to keep your eyes on Kadeem Olivera who strips Kurt Burgess and beats everybody down court to finish with an exclamation. At the end of the 1st quarter, Heritage Bank boasts a 14-12 lead. In the 2nd, Felix Martinez gets hot and he knocks down the triple and would give the bank a 14 pt output tonight. Who’s that man with the monster ham…you Andrew Ortiz as he hammers the run with a one hand effort and would show 9 pts 9 rebounds at the end of the ballgame.

However, the Beer has Kadeem Olivera who does it all. He raises up and sinks the 3 points and would put up the game high of 32 pts—more than double the sore of any player tonight as he ties the game at 19 apiece. Unfortunately, Belikin would only score 2 more pts in the remaining 7½ minutes in the quarter. Of course, Kurt Burgess continues his dominance in the paint, coming up with a cheeky underhand and tonight would past up a big time 2 doubles of a team high 15 pts and a game high, 17 boards to earn the highest efficiency rating of 30 pts. Jaleel Arnold pulls up to sink this jumper and would finish with 9. It’s a 13 pts lead for Heritage Bank at the half.

In the 3rd quarter, Kadeem Olivera comes back with a breakaway 2 and guess what, Kadeem would outscore all this teammates by 5 pts, but it wouldn’t be enough. Marlon Arnold gives the bank two more points. Folks, it’s a 21 pt Heritage lead at the end of three. We’re in the 4th quarter, Heritage Bank steps off the gas, but not before Felix Martinez strikes for his double digit 14 points. Heritage picks up the 69 to 59 big win over Belikin to start the season. In Friday’s nightcap, Belize Bank Bulldogs crushed Infotel 78 to 49 while on Saturday’s ticket, Central health crushed Civil Aviation Drones; Belize City Council routed BWSL 81 to 66 and Atlantic Bank dumped Belize Telemedia Limited 70 to 52.

Turning to Smart Mundialito action…Hattieville Riverside Boys handed Face of Belize a 4-1 defeat. Yougn Warriors and City Boys rallied to a scoreless draw. Brown Bombers and Carlston FC also settled for that same score while Collet Strikers edged Reality Youths 1-zip and Ladyville Jaguards also picked up a 1-nil victory over Heights FC. Checking in on Sunday’s All Star Match…the North and the South settled for a 1-1 regular tie, but the North grabbed the win in the penalty shootout. Elroy Arnold was named MVP, meanwhile City Boys lead the Mundialito with 19 pts, Brown Bombers is next with 15 pts. Hatteiville Riverside Boys has 13, Ladyville Rising Stars 12 and Carlston FC rounds out the top 5 with 11 pts.

Turning to the Belize City Primary School Football Tournament on Thursday’s season sending ticket, St. John’s Vianney took the male title with a 3-1 win over Belize Elementary while Ebenezer Methodist took 3rd place from the Salvation Army in a 1-nil affair. On the female side, Belize Elementary emerged Female Champion with a 1-nil win over St. John Vianney, who had to settle for 2nd, while St. Martin De Porres grabbed 3rd place with its 2-nil defeat of St. John’s Anglican. In the meantime, the Belize District Finals are set for today June 6th at the MCC Grounds.

In international news, the CONCACAF Champions League draw 2016 has found Belize’s Police United in Group E along with Olympia of Honduras and Pechuca of Mexico, two of the top clubs in Central America.

Finally in Belize District 1st Division play, Stars Academy picked up a 2-nil victory over Westlake yesterday. In 1st half play, Ryan Simpson uses his body to get the pill to goal to give Stars Academy a 1-zip lead. Steven Baizar could make it a 2-nil lead, but squanders the opportunity from the penalty spot. Late in 2nd half play, Baizar gets another chance to move the scoreboard but he reaches the back of the net instead of the ball. In the winning moments of the ballgame, Steven Baizar finally comes through with this routine tap to give Stars Academy the 2-zp win.

Sports Monday: Basketball, Football and Softball Stats

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

Friday night’s opener in the Belize District Firm Basketball Competition saw Belize City Council and Civil Aviation Drones open the double header ticket at Bird’s Isle. The City Council roars out of the blocks as Clayton Ogaldez deals to Andrew Vasquez who came out to play knocking down this triple from the left corner. On the next trip down court, Benedict Terry is rewarded for staying with the play—he sinks the easy deuce and would tally 11 pts and lead all players with a game high 14 boards. The City Council runs to a 12 pt lead at the end of the 1st. Cordel Gonzales Jr. keeps the pressure on going glass for 1 of his 9 game points, ballooning the lead to 13 pts. This wakes up Civil Aviation Drones. Roger Reneau receives the inbound pass and raises up to sink the three pointer. He would hit 19 pts and pull 6 boards. Ernest Tench would strike for three the old fashioned way when he comes up with this loose ball to find a friendly run and then he sinks it. Tench would tie Reneau for the team high of 19 pts.

Kelvin Gillett spins and marches through the teeth of the City Council’s defense for 2 of his 17 game pts and at the half, the Drones are only down by 9 pts. However, in the 3rd quarter, Belize City Council would outscore Civil Aviation by 15 pts as they demonstrate the classic 3 man weaves that concludes with Andrew Vasquez with the 2 pts off the glass. Vasquez would post a 2 doubles of 26 pts; the game high and 11 rebounds.

Kenroy Usher comes up with this acrobatic shot for 2 of his 7 game pts for the Drones. Andrew Vasquez works the give and go with Edward Baptist for 2 more pts. The scoreboard reads 65 to 48 at the end of 3. In the 4th, Kenroy Usher tries to bring his team back with this nice reverse and the extra point. It’s the waning seconds of the ballgame with the Drones down by 8 when Akeem Watters goes to the clarity to hit both attempts as belie City Council posts the 85-75 big win. In the other game of the night, Infotel bottled Belikin in a 78 to 69 final score. On Saturday’s ticket, B.T.L. handled Heritage Bank in an 84 to 73 score. Belize Bank Bulldogs downed Tropic Air 90 to 65 and Mayan Man warriors defeated BWSL 85 to 60.

Turning to the football scene, Copper Bank FC of Corozal won the National Female Primary School Title staged at the Isidoro Beaton, forcing Independence Primary of Stann Creek into 2nd. San Lazaro RC of Orange Walk finished 3rd while Dianira Lopez of Copper Bank walked away with the Most Valuable Player Award. On the male side, Chunox Seventh Day Adventist of Corozal took the male title as San Pedro RC of Belize settled for 2nd place. Louisiana Government School of Orange Walk was 3rd and Romario Martimez of Chunox was voted MVP. Kalie Jones of San Lazaro RC received a high school scholarship after emerging as the most exciting player of the tournament. We say congratulations to one and all.

Turning to the Smart Mundialito on Saturday at the MC Grounds, we caught up with Collet Strikers in action against Face of Belize. Early in the ballgame, Kyra Horne, defending Face of Belize takes down Jahren Rivers in the box which attracts the penalty whistle. Jevon Theus gets the call and his left foot launch finds the far corner of the goal to give the Collet Strikers the 1-zip lead. Shemar Gillett hits the near post with this right foot shot but on his 2nd attempt, he finds the bak of the net to give the Collet team a 2-nil lead. In 2nd half play, this splendid individual effort from Shemar Gillett would beat his man and then humbles the keeper with this left touch for the 3-nil Strikers lead. A few minutes later, the goal keeper’s error in goal gives possession to Jahren Rivers and he makes it a 4-nothing lead for Collet Strikers. At the other end, Mushay Grant is taken down by Jevon Theus, attracting the penalty call. Kaseem Sanos gets Face of Belize on the scoreboard with this conversion.

However, under heavy pressure from Shemar Gillett and Chris Maskall, the Face of Belize defense comes up with the auto goal as Collet Strikers grab the big win in a 5-1 blast. In the preceding match, Ladyville Jaguars and Hattieville Riverside Boys just could not find the goal so both settled for a scoreless draw. In other results, Brown Bombers held league leading City Boys to a 1-1 tie; Ladyville Rising Stars and Reality Youths settled for a scoreless draw and Carlston FC blanked Young Warriors 1-zip. City Boys continue to lead the Mundialito with 20 pts, Brown Bombers show 16, Hattieville Boys and Carlston FC have tallied 14 pts apiece to be in 3rd and 4th place respectively.

Finally folks, Orchid Girls of Burrell Boom and Easy Does It of Flowers Bank had to go extra innings to determine who would emerge Champion of the Belize rural Softball Marathon staged yesterday at Lord’s Bank. We join the action in the bottom of the 7th inning with Boom looking to close the show with a 20-18 lead, there are 2 outs when Boom pitcher, Ainnek Baptist hits Ranisha Rhaburn to put 2 on. 3rd base Sharron Robinson comes up and smacks Baptist to the left field and 2 big time runs score in money time. Sharron Robinson at 3rd is the winning run, but Shawn Robinson cannot bring her home and we’re tied at 2 apiece. So we got to the top of the 8th when Sheridan Morgan comes up with the 1 on whose bunt is fumbled by pitcher Margaret Hendy. Sharlene Humphreys facing Hendy bunts to load the bases. Sheridan Humphreys singles to the midfield and Rebecca Nicholson scores from 3rd. in the meantime, this should have been an easy out on Karen Haylock, the throw from 3rd is errant and Sharlene Humphreys gives Boom a 2-run lead.

In the bottom of the 8th, Flowers Bank has 2 outs and 2 runners for the batter, Sharra Robinson, who makes contact but the hit is denied by an amazing catch from shortstop Rebecca Nicholson. Boom would go on to win 22 to 21. Congrats to the 2016 Rural Softball Marathon Champs.

Sports: Basketball and Football Matches over the Weekend

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

1st Division football returned to the MCC Grounds yesterday where Ladyville Jaguars jumps out against Eiley FC under the banner of the Belize District Football Association. Kevin Alvarez, of Eiley FC, struts his stuff in front of the Ladyville goal only to conclude the effort with an unguided left foot blast. At the other end, the Jaguars could open the scoreboard off this nice center from Sean Young, but neither Joel Ottley nor Hughton Baptist could. Baptist then gets this open look at goal only to unleash an undisciplined left foot. Mark Grant uses this set piece to dial a long distanced effort to force goalkeeper Nigel Grant into a save and at the half, we’re scoreless. We’re into 2nd half play when Kareem Flowers sets up Kevin Alvarez who simply can’t get power on the header.

In the meantime, Misael Canul volleys this ball at goal but it veers outside of the sticks. Folks, we can only say Dalton Cayetano squanders this change to give Eiley FC this clinical strike by Joel Ottley is a beauty; nonetheless, it’s rejected by the goalkeeper’s best friend. We must say this build up is textbook, however, David Ramos fails to finish for the Jaguars. Things become compounded for the Ladyville team when the referee determines that Keiron Jones has fouled Kevin Alvarez inside the box and as a result points to the penalty spot. Kevin Rowland gets the call from Eiley FC only to be upstaged by the Ladyville keeper, Nigel Grant. A few minutes later, Dalton Cayetano fights his way into point blank range of the Ladyville goal and misfires. The breakthrough comes when David Ramos threats the needle to Herbert Baptist and the rasta finds the back of the net to give Ladyville Jaguars the lead in money time. The euphoria is short-lived because two minutes later, Brian Martinez pushes this set piece past an embarrassed Nigel Grant to tie the ballgame at 1 apiece.

Now let’s check in on the Smart Mundialito staged Saturday at the MCC Grounds and we join the action in the 1st half as Rasheed Ford mounts this sizzling individual effort from midfield, making his way past traffic to give league leading City Boys a 1-zip lead over Reality Youth. Just before the half expires, Jalen Kelly fires this on the run left foot that just misses the target. Make it 2-nil in early 2nd half when Cyril Jones beats Tarique Solis to sail this ball past Juan Rivero. It’s a 3-zip win for City Boys when Kaysia Requeña spin past the Reality Youth defense to fire the left foot past Rivero. City Boys continue to roll.

Meanwhile, in the match between Brown Bombers and Ladyville Jaguars, the Bombers take a 1st half lead when Jalen White fires the right foot at goal which beats goalkeeper Elroy Arnold for the 1-nil lead. In early 2nd hald, Elden Byrd gets past the Jaguars defense to fire at goal only to see Elroy Arnold take care of business. Now, check out this instinctive move by Jalen White when he trails this ball and gets it over the goalkeeper’s head to give Brown Bombers the 2-zip victory.

In other results: Collet Strikers burned Heights FC in a 1-nil affair; Hattieville Riverside Boys shocked Ladyville Rising Stars 4-nil while Young Warriors and Face of Belize battled to a 1-1 stalemate. Thus City Boys lead the league with 23pts; Brown Bombers show 19, Hattieville 17, Carlston FC 14 and Ladyville Stars rounds out the top 5 going into the final week of regular season play.

Checking in on BDBA’s Interoffice League, BWSL got back into giving a 71 to 57 basking of Belize Telemedia Limited. Maya Man warriors shook up the defending champions, Belize Bank Bulldogs with 98 to 94 big win on game high of 27 pts from Winston Pratt.

Finally folks, we say congratulations to the athletes who returned from the 17th Central American Senior Championship in Athletics at El Salvador. Belize returned with 6 of the new records set at this event: Kaina Martinez with 11:56 secs in the 100 meters, Tricia Flores with 5.95 meters in the long jump, Itohan Aikhionbare 15:67 in the shot put, Brandon Jones’ 16.22 meters in the triple jump, Katy Sealy, Faith Morris, Tricia Flores and Samantha Dirby time of 46:61 seconds in the 4X100 relay also set a new record and all gold. Belize also won 4 silver medals and 2 bronze and holds 7 Central American records. Again we say good show.

Basketball and Boxing Matchups in Weekend Sports

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

Friday night’s big match dubbed the battle banks saw Atlantic Bank challenge the Heritage Bank in a bid for bragging rights inside the BDBA Firms Competition. Heritage Bank roars out of the starting blocks. Kevlin Rhoden misses the jumper but Kurt Burgess is there to clean up the boards and sink the put back. Down low, Andrew Ortiz spots Rico Black unattended. Atlantic Bank looks to Felix Martin for some offense and he beats everybody down court for 2 of his 16 pts total. Nevertheless, at the end of the 1st, Heritage Bank rules in a 23 to 14 score. In the 2nd, Kurt Burgess takes his game into the paint and there’s no one to stop him as he gives Heritage Bank a 13 pt lead. Kurt Burgess would register game high of 24 pts 19 rebounds and would attract an efficiency rating of 42; the highest for the outing. However, here comes Atlantic Bank. Ervin Orozco deals to Herman Ramos who pulls up for a long deuce. Ramos would lead Atlantic with 19 pts and 12 rebounds. On this trip down court, Atlantic Bank finds that veteran Cassian “the Russian” Flowers and his base line jumper for 2 of his 14 game points.

And when Herman Ramos hits the triple, Heritage has pulled up to 38 pts thereby cutting the lead to 1 pt going into intermission. In the 3rd, Felix Martin raises up for 3 of his 16 pts in an attempt to renew the separation. At the other end, Ramos answers with a three for Atlantic. In the meantime, this baseline jumper from Cassian Flowers gives Atlantic Bank a 3 pt lead. Heritage Bank coems roaring back. Burgess deals to Devon; he gets 2 of his 6 pts. And then Burgess works his way through the pain to give his team a 58-51 lead at the end of 3. Atlantic Bank makes a run in the 4 quarter. Ervin Orozco finds Herman Ramos and he sinks his 5th triple. Cassian Flowers sinks this bucket and Atlantic Bank takes a 1 pt lead with 7:25 to go. Kurt Burgess returns the lead with this 2 point offering. With 2½ remaining, Cassian Flowers gives Atlantic a 1 pt lead. Atlantic Bank hangs on to the 68-66 big win.

In the nightcap, Belize Telemedia handled Central Health 81 to 75 riding on a double digit of 11 pts and 17 rebounds from Lennox Cayetano while Jason Vasquez led in scoring with 25 pts and Eddie Thompson threw up 17 in the big win. On Saturday’s ticket, Infotel drowned BWS 90 to 75 and Belize Bank Bulldogs beat Bowen and Bowen in a 79 to 69 final score.

Turning to the boxing scene, the Sacred Heart Auditorium in scenic San Ignacio, played host to an international professional fight card presented by the Belize Boxing Development Council on Saturday night. In the opening bout, Rony Aldana of Belize weighing 108 lbs did enough to impress the judges to get the win over Roberto Canul Solis of Mexico in the 4-rounder. Max pain Williams at 142 lbs got the nod on Eric Arguelles of Mexico in a fight that could have delivered more. Michael Soberanis was not at his best Saturday night against a game Alfredo Moro of Mexico but was good enough to earn the win in a tough fight. In the meantime, an out of shape Mohammed Harmouch of San Pedro ran into a Luis Salzedo, a tough Mexican who floors him here with the straight right and the Belizean would not survive the 1st round. The 6-round battle between Jose Duran of Honduras and Freddy Aporto of Nicaragua proved to be a case of tit for tat, butter for fish, and in the end the judges concluded that Duran, the Honduran got the better of it. In the final bout of the night, Eduard Esquivel of Belize at 139 lbs was impressive enough to get a unanimous decision over Eric Samuels of Honduras in quite an entertaining matchup.

Football and Basketball Stats with James Adderley

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

Saturday night brought out the big time showdown between Infotel and Belize Telemedia at Bird’s Isle. As the BDBA Firms Basketball season continues to roll. In the 1st quarter, Jason Vasquez power Telemedia first with this hammer. He comes back with the triple and would put up 15 pts while leading his team on the boards with 8 rebounds. However, Infotel’s Darwin Elijio responds with this long distance launch for 3 of his 18 game points. Elijio comes to hit another triple, would go 5 for 12 from beyond arc. Infotel boasts a 4 pt lead at the end of the 1st. in the 2nd, Infotel extends the lead propelled by the amazing play of Earl Johnson who comes up with this rebound to stick the put back. It’s string music when Johnson raises up below the 3 pt line and guess what? He would register a a doubles of 34 pts, the game high to go along with 11 rebounds. Earl Johnson earns the highest efficiency rating of 40 with this performance. Lupito Acosta keeps Telemedia in the hunt, hitting 2 of his 14 pts right here.

Another weapon for Infotel is Elvis Olivera who muscles his way down low to score 2 of his 11 and would make it a 2 doubles with 10 rebounds. At the half, the Infotel lead is 7. In the 3rd, Infotel would outscore Telemedia by 15 pts, but 1st Devon Lozano comes with the steal and goes all the way for 2 of his 14 game points. Earl Johnson continues to sizzle, getting 2 Infotel points in heavy traffic. He then deals Darwin Elijio and the 3 is automatic. Hats off to Evan rene who worked the boards for the game high 14 rebounds and would make it a 2 doubles with 14 points. The scoreboard shows 72 to 57 in favor of Infotel at the end of 3. Mark Swift tries to get Telemedia back into the ballgame in the 4th. He would lead B.T.L. with 18 pts, but the big win goes to Infotel in a 93 – 79 final score.

Other results from Saturday finds Belize Water Services dumping the defending champions, Belize Bank Bulldogs 94 to 77, while Mayan Man Warriors got the win over Belize City Council Dragons 87 to 80.

Turning to the football scene. Yesterday’s Belize District 1st Division clash between Stars Academy and Ladyville Jaguars reigned supreme inside the MCC Grounds. Ladyville looks for the early lead when Kevan Young delivers to Hughson Baptist whose header beers outside the sticks. Stars Academy gets its turn to open the scoreboard when Francisco Briceño mounts this nice individual effort to fire the left foot at goal, but goalkeeper Nigel Grant applies the necessary touch. Hughson Baptist is set up by Kevan Young again…this time it’s the foot that derails his attempt to give the jaguars the lead. Steven Baizar then misses from point blank range with the left foot inside the box and let’s just call it a scoreless 1st half because after intermission, the battle explodes. Folks, we’re some 3 minutes into 2nd half when Steven Baizar’s attempt at goal finds the hands of Ladyville’s Joel Ottley and the referee rules penalty. Steven Baizar finds the near corner as Stars Academy takes an early 1-zip lead just like that. 4 minutes later, Clinton Dawson comes up with this mighty individual effort to make it a 2 nil lead for the Stars. Then Nigel Grant’s mistake here hands Jonathan Herrera the easy goal for the 3-zip Stars lead. Ladyville Jaguars looks to answer with this push at goal, but Stars goalkeeper, Elden Linares mounts this determined effort to ensure the scoreboard remains unchanged. It’s more Jaguars offensive when table is set perfectly for Kevin Young who comes up wit a disappointing finish.

Folks, this play is what you call a back breaker. Stars Academy’s Shemar Thompson pushes at an empty goal—Rujuan Baptist covers for the keeper and clears only to see the ball rebounds off Calvin Young to make it a 4-nil ballgame on the dreaded auto goal. Stars look for more…Clayton Fitzgibbon fires the left foot, but the keeper takes care of business. Shemar Thompson comes back looking for his goal, but it’s not to be as Nigel Grant shines. Ladyville finally scores when goalkeeper Linares punch out of goal, falls to Kieron Jones, who gets the Jaguars their sole goal as Stars Academy posts the 4-1 big win.

In other football news, the 2 finalists in the Smart Mundialito emerged over the weekend. City Boys gets a mighty score in the waning moments of 1st play when Adrian Armstrong of Ladyville Rising Stars gets this ball past goalkeeper Kevaughan Tablada into the net, but referee rules it a handball and he is correct. In 2nd half play, Ken Galvez is at the right place and the right time to touch this ball into the net and the league leader moves on to the finals. Game II saw brown Bombers take aim at the Hattieville Riverside Boys and we’re in 1st half play when Hattieville misplays the ball with his hand and the referee awards a penalty. Ken Galvez gets the call and he gives Brown Bombers the 1-nil lead. A mistake by Hattieville gives Ken Galvez a chance to double his tally and he does to make it a 2-zip lead. The score would hold up as Brown Bombers moves on. Thus the final chapter of the Smart Mundialito will be unveiled this Sunday, July 10th inside the MCC Grounds. At 1 p.m., Ladyville Rising Stars and Hattieville Riverside Boys battle for 3rd place and money time comes up at 2 p.m. when Brown Bombers take aim at City Boys.

Sportscaster James Adderley and the Weekend Blotter

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

Friday night’s ticket of BDBA Firms basketball play surely was something to see as Atlantic Bank currently in second place took a surging BWS looking to move on. The bank gets off fast as Ervin Orosco strikes the pose for a triple, would tally 22 points and would lead his team with 4 assists to earn the highest efficiency rating with 19. At mid court Ashley Hemsley comes up with this loose ball and deals to Lawrence Young who smoothly reverses for 2 of his team high 15 points. But at the end of the 1st the bank commands a 4-point lead. In the 2nd Marshall Nunez enters the land of the giants and comes up with magic for 2 of his 8 game points. Atlantic Bank pushes the lead to 24 when Herman Ramos attacks the rim for 2 of his game high 25 points helping his tally by going 7 of 8 from the free throw line and also pulled down 6 rebounds.

BWS pushes back – James Enriquez mesmerizes the bank’s defence with this dance through the defence for 2 of his 11 game points.  Luis Barcelona then beats Cassian Flowers to the rim for 2 of his game 13. Akeem Trapp also contributes to the BWS momentum with this drive for 2 of his 7 points and he record the game high of 9 assist. When Lawrence Young hits this baseline jumper BWS ends the quarter only down by 1 point – Young would lead BWS in scoring with 15 points. Down by 9in the 3rd Young brings BWS to within 6 with this 3-point offering. Folks meet the chairman of the boards – Cassian the Russian Flowers who would pull a double digit 11 rebounds to go along with his 6 points. Lawrence Young gives BWS its only lead in the 2nd half with this triple. Folks Ervin Orosco was simply brilliant in the 3rd quarter as he shoots for 2 more Atlantic Bank points. It’s a 53 to 47 lead for the Bank at the end of 3.

In the 4th Orosco teams up with top scorer Herman Ramos to extend the lead. Atlantic Bank goes on to post the 70 – 62 big W and remain 2nd place in the standings. Meanwhile we also got a glimpse of Friday night opener between Mayan Man Warriors and BTL. We pick up the action in the 4th quarter with BTL up by 2. Matthew Young ties the score for Warriors with this tip in off the missed shot and we’re tied at 74 apiece. Mark Swift look for his 16th point with this attempt at the triple – it falls short Jason Vasquez sweeps in and goes glass for 2 of his team high 19 points. At the other end Winston Pratt finds Sheldon Williams in the paint and he banks the hook shot to give Warriors a 3-point lead. Here come the dagger folks, BTL’s Jason Vasquez misses the 3-point attempt, Winston Pratt who would record the game high 23 points pulls his game high 7 rebounds and deals to Sheldon Williams who delivers. Down by 3 Dave Apolonio looks for his 15th game point – he misses badly. Mayan Man Warriors stays atop the league with an 82 to 78 big W over BTL.

In football news, the Smart Mundialito reached money time yesterday inside the MCC Grounds and we go in the 3rd place match-up between Ladyville Rising Stars and Hattieville Riverside Boys. We’re in the 2nd half Cesar Garcia pounces on this loose ball to hammer home a right foot that finds the back of the net to give Ladyville Rising Starts a 1 – zip W and the 3rd place trophy. In the main event City Boys and Brown Bombers took to the field for the Championship battle. We’re in the late 1st half action when this advance by Ken Galvez forces Edward Humes out of his goal; the broken play reaches Zamar Alvarez who aims at an open goal only to be denied by the tough defender Michael Bradley.

In the 2nd half Keyden Bowen fires at goal but the ball veers wide as City Boys continue to hunt. Folks this all out press for the goal by City Boy creates a serious opportunity to score but Edward Humes handles his position. In extra time Darnel Gonzalez tries to secu7re the W for City Boys with this left foot shot that inly screams past the target. City Boys keep the pressure on Dalvan Beliz crushes this half volley at goal and only a magnificent save by Edward Humes denies the attempt. So we go to penalty kicks. Michael Bradley takes over from Humes but Kevaughn Tablada, the City keeper opens the scoreboard. Bradley gets revenge by scoring on Tablada. Kaysia Requena is successful for City Boys. Keyden Bowen ties the score at 2 apiece. Devin Thurton gives City Boys the 3 – 2 go ahead. Elden Byrd ties it up. The 1st miss comes from Rasheed Lord. Brown Bombers take the lead on this shot from Jonathan Casimiro. Cyril Jones ties things up for City Boys in a must score situation. Up comes Brendon Bouloy and he hots the far post. Dernel Gonzalez unleashes a beauty to restore the City lead. So it’s left up to Jaylen White to tie the score and he does. Tavon Gibson restores the City Boys lead. Keifer Perteau is now the man of the moment for Brown Bombers only to push the ball too close to Kevaughn Tablada who makes the save and City Boys is the 2016 Smart Mundialito champ and we say congratulations. Edward Humes emerged as best goalkeeper. Best defence is Michael Bradley. Best midfielder is Kent Galvez and playoff MVP. Best forward goes to Ruben Darius. MVP for regular season is Kaysia Requeña while best coach is Daniel Smith of Ladyville.

In closing folks, we say big up to Taye Perkinson for wining gold in open single Table Tennis in the CODICADER tournament by defeating Sebastian Mudaja of Panama, 11-4, 11-9. We know the Belize female volleyball won silver by beating El Salvador 25-6, 25-11 in straight sets on Saturday. Good show girls.

Football, Basketball and Softball in Weekend Sports

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

We begin with Belize District Football t the MCC Grounds where the mad dash to make the championship match raged as Lake I Bombers and Sports Academy almost fought to a standstill. 8 minutes in, Francesco Briceño guides this set piece into the danger zone; Keron Miguel in goal for Lake I swabs it out to Dejean Thompson who gives Stars Academy the 1-zip lead. Folks, 7 minutes later, Randy Franklin tries to clear this center out of danger; the ball finds his left hand and after a brief soul searching, the referee rules penalty. Lloyd Jones gets the call and he really displaces goalkeeper Elden Linarez with the left foot to forge the 1-1 tie. In 2nd half play, Shemar Thompson gets 2 chances to give Stars Academy the lead. He botches the 1st and is then denied by Keron Miguel who really didn’t know too much about it.

Late into 2nd half, Lake I Bombers get to steal the lead but Kadeem Myers looks the gift horse in the mouth. So we’re into overtime and it’s Stars Academy who strike first and it’s a beauty when Shemar Thompson lays these 2 defensive players to waste to tap a left foot push into the near corner. The celebration is well rehearsed, but premature because 8 minutes later, Delroy Flores comes up with this magnificent header to force the 2-2 overtime tie. Here’s the win in a nutshell; Gilbert Gomez breaks the 4-4 with this conversion to give Lake I Bombers a 5-4 lead. Jonathan Perera steps up in a must score sudden death situation—his penalty kick is rejected by Keron Miguel. Lake I Bombers advance to the finals with a 5-4 victory on penalty kicks.

Lake I Bombers will now face Eiley FC who dispersed FC Elite in a 3-2 finish. This Sunday at the MCC Grounds it’s money time with the BDBA title on the line. Game time is 1 p.m. for the 3rd place battle between Stars Academy and Elite FC and the championship match up is set for 3 p.m.

In basketball news, we caught up with Friday night’s Firms Competition showdown between Belize City Council Dragons and Infotel. Andrew Vasquez gets the City Council going early, landing this triple and he would lead his team tonight with 21 pts. Of course Infotel has Earl Johnson who always comes out the play and here he gives his team the lead with this bucket. Johnson would put 14 pts and pull 9 boards. At the end of the 1st, Infotel leads 17 to 16. In the 2nd quarter, Infotel extends the lead. Mister Elvis Olivera receives the long pass and flashes to the hoops. No doubt Olivera is the best player tonight, posting game highs of 38 pts and 12 rebounds plus received the highest efficiency rating of 47. Mister Olivera displays his guile and power down low to earn 3 pts the old fashioned way leading his team with more than half of their total score. At the half, Infotel has tames the Dragons with a 42 to 31 showing.

In the 3rd, the sleeping Dragons awaken. Andrew Vasquez finds Benedict Terry down low and he goes glass for 2 of his 10 game points. Sidney Bradley wants 3, Sidney Bradley gets 3…would go 3 for 3 from beyond the arc and would finish with 15 pts. Andrew Vasquez contributes to the separation by busting through the Infotel defense. Gabriel Taylor then sticks this put back for 2 of his 12 pts. Going into the 4th quarter the Belize City Council Dragons have cut the deficit to 3. We’re tied at 69 apiece when Sidney Bradley sinks his 3rd 3 point shot and the Dragons have a 2 pt lead. The Dragons would go on to carve out the big win from the charity stripe in an 80 to 74 final score.

In other results from around Central Health really did a number on Bowen and Bowen in a 109 to 57 blow out; BWSL stopped Heritage Bank big time 90 to 67 and B.T.L. downed Drones 91 to 68.

Finally folks, Interoffice Softball is kicking and alive at Roger’s Stadium. On Sunday, B.T.L. Softball team took on B.E.L. Power Sockets. We’re in the top of the 3rd. B.T.L. with a 2-1 lead have the bases loaded for Bernard Pitts, facing Jashema Saunders and Pitts hits it to deep left field. Shanti Roches and Mark Anderson score wile Dilton Leal reaches third base. Trenton Marin comes up to bring home Leal with this single up the middle. With Marconi Leal at 3rd base, Tamara Ramsey gets a single to bring him home, thereby capping a 4-run inning to take a 6-3 lead. We head to the bottom with B.E.L. on offense trailing in a 6-3 score, facing Lorena Martinez. The bases are loaded for Glenford Flowers and the lefty swings for an in the park home run; James Paxton, Jashema Saunders, Tanya Gomez and Mister Flowers score. Kareon Michaels comes up with Gadsden Ferguson at 2nd and brings him home with this swing. James comes in facing the new pitcher, Bernard Pitts and sacrifices to bring in Joseph Enriquez for the 6th run of the inning. B.E.L. would score 7 runs in the bottom of the 4th and would bat in 4 more runs in the 5th to post the 14-7 victory over B.T.L.

Basketball, Softball & Cycling in Sports Monday

Good evening I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.

Certainly was a biggie at Birds Isle Friday night in Interoffice Basketball play as Heritage Bank Heatz challenged the supremacy of the league leaders Mayan Man Warriors in what turned out to be a low scoring affair. Winston Pratt got the Warriors off to the quick start with this triple and the MVP candidate would record a 2 double of 13 points and 10 rebounds. However tonight you’d want to keep your eyes on Mr. Andrew Ortiz who came out tonight bent on making a big time statement. At the end of the 1st quarter we’re tied at 14 apiece. Andrew Ortiz opens the quarter with this monster one hand slam and guess what people he would lead all players with 21 points, 17 rebounds and an efficiency rating of 27 – all game highs. Nevertheless, this bucket by Winston Pratt gives Mayan Man Warriors a 27 – 18 lead. Heritage Bank roars back Felix Martinez spot up for 3 and would sink 16 points and pull 10 rebounds. And this bucket by Martinez gives the Heatz a 33 – 28 lead at the half. In the 3rd Marlon Andrewin slices through the Bank’s defence for 2 of his 11 games points as Heritage looks to extend the lead. At the other end Marvin Skeet’s put back helps the Warriors to remain within striking distance. Skeet would hit 13 points tonight. Ortiz then finds an open Rico Black who swishes in for 2 of his 10 points. Sheldon Williams gets the long pass for the easy 2 and would finish with 2 doubles of 11 points and 10 rebounds. At the buzzer to the end of the 3rd quarter Marlon Andrewin gives his team a 9-point lead with this penetration. Take in the 4th quarter Marvin Skeet lands this triple to cut the lead to 3 points. Winston Pratt the goes left to cut the deficit to 1. However, Andrewin sinks 2 clutch free throws as Heritage Bank Heatz slays the Mayan Man Warriors 66 to 62. In the nightcap Belize Bank Bulldogs took down the Civil Aviation Drones 103 to 93 and in other results Atlantic Bank beat Infotel 80 to 74. Belize City Dragons bombed Bowen and Bowen 93 to 74. Belize City Council Dragons demolishes BTL 91 to 71. BWS outlasted Central Health 98 to 93 and Atlantic Bank beat Bowen and Bowen 67 to 57.

On Friday in Senior Softball play, B.T.L. won by the mercy rule in the 6th inning over Belize Bank in a 7 – zip score. In the undercard, interoffice play saw K.H.M.H. edge National Sports Council 8 to 7. Saturdays interoffice action saw Guardian Bombers give the Sports Council its second loss in arrow in a 2 – zip affair.

Finally, in cycling news, we caught up with the C-Ray Cycling Summer Series and we began with the female over 12, 8 laps race and its Taralee Ordonez taking top honours while Alicee King pedals in for 2nd and SiyaSwasey finishes 3rd. In the male mountain bike/beach cruiser 2 laps, Nelson Zayden emerged as the winner. Triston Gentle finishes 2nd and Nathan Savery pulled 3rd. In Category C 9 to 12 years, 5 laps Derrick Chavarria took top honours, Kenyon Stanford pulled up 2nd and Alba Perrote rounds out the top 3. Byron Polanco was unchallenged for the W in the Cat B 13 to 15 years. Six seconds later Nelson Zyden pulled up for 2nd place. And Tevin Chaplin rolled in for 3rd place. Now here’s the monster Category A 16 to 18 years end its quite a field, 15 laps later it’s a jubilant Patrick Williams who rolls in unchallenged for the number one spot. The sprint for the runner-up finds a threesome and its Darien Anderson who capture that prize, Anthony Marin is 3rd while Ernest Bradley rounds out the top 4.
