Sports Monday: Basketball, Football and Cricket

Good evening, welcome to Sports Monday.

The Premier Football League Opening Season got off over the weekend with 4 matches countrywide. Saturday night at Capital City, Belmopan hosted FC Belize at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium. FC Belize looks to open the scoreboard when Marlon Gutierrez engineers this one on one encounter with the keeper only to be denied by international Shane Orio. When Marlon Meza centers to Jerome James and he heads it in, Belmopan Bandits assume they have a 1-zip lead only to see it negated by the linesman’s flag. On this FC press, Hector Martinez’s stretch is not good enough to hit the target. Martinez then tries to make amends off the set piece but goalkeeper Orio hangs tough. You make the call; is Marlon Meza being threatened by a raised peg from goalkeeper Rodrigo Vasquez? The referee rules no. FC’s Martinez presses again and again; we can only address the call to you—did Tyrone Pandy take him down inside the box? You tell me.

In the meantime, Jordy Polanco’s shot provides the perfect opportunity for Marlon Meza to shake the cords, but it’s Rodrigo Vasquez who wins the duel at the goalmouth. When Jorge Aleman sends this ball into the danger zone, Hector Martinez is indeed lucky to get away with only a yellow card. Roberts gets his turn to open the scoreboard for the Bandits, but Rodrigo Vasquez is a tough keeper. And we must say FC’s Hector Martinez is a tough cookie because he keeps on losing. In 2nd half, Jerome James beats his man but can’t beat the keeper. At the other end, Jorge Aleman is not too off, but the scoreboard remains unmoved. In the meantime, the forward press from Elroy Smith is good but it appears David Madrid couldn’t make up his mind how to strike. Folks it was a competitive ballgame and both teams had superb goalkeepers. Thus we’ll settle for the scoreless draw.

In Belize District football news, Lake I Bombers got goals from Sergio Luna and Lloyd Jones to capture the 1st Division Championship yesterday at the MCC in a 2-1 final score. At the U-17level, the Belize District U-17 team emerged as the F.F.B. Tournament and we say congrats.

Oh yes folks, Police United made its first appearance in the CONCACAF Champions League last Tuesday against Olympia at Honduras. Olympia got 2 goals from Michael and one apiece from Javier Estupinan and Bayron Mendez for the 4-nil win at Estadio Tilinercio Carias. Our team now heads to Mexico for its date at Nuevo Hidalgo Stadium against Pachuca.

In cricket news, Game II of the 3 game series of the Belize Rural Cricket Championship move to Double Head, the home turf of Excellence who found themselves down a game to the 2-time champ, Easy Does It. Excellence batted 1st and came up with 173 runs for all out. Unfortunately, they were not ready for the bat of Andrew Banner who crushes this ball for a 6. It’s yet another 6 from Andrew Banner as the Easy Does It chase gains momentum and he would bat in a colossal 92 runs. however, the winning run comes from the bat of Julian Reynolds; it’s good for only 1 run, but it delivers the margin of victory in the 174 to 173 score and guess what, Easy Does It 3-peats. We say it’s big time.

Turning to the basketball scene, the BDBA Basketball playoffs took center stage at the BES Gym over the weekend. We caught up with the showdown between Belize City Council Dragons and Heritage Bank Friday night. For certain, Sidney Bradley came out on fire as he left the Heritage Bank defense standing going to the hoop for 2. 2 minutes later, Bradley comes back and strikes for 2 more – Bradley would score the team high of 21 pts, pulled 7 rebounds, dishes out 7 assists and received the highest efficiency rating of 33. Folks, it was a nightmarish start for Heritage Bank. In fact, this 3 point shot by the veteran Rico Black accounts for 75% of their 1st quarter points total. And the scoreboard tells that story. However, the Bank does get going in the 2nd. Felix Martinez finds Eugene Jex and the reverse gives him 2 of his 9 game pts. Andrew Ortiz also comes alive as he powers his way down low for 2 and would make it 3 from the charity stripe. Kurt Burgess then spins in the paint and he scores 2 and would finish with 14 pts and 9 rebounds.

It’s Andrew Ortiz again and this time he crushes the rim with emphasis for 2 of his game high 23 pts. And can you believe this, Mister Kurt Burgess beats the clock with this massive 3-pt delivery that ties the ballgame at the half. In the 3rd, City Council Dragons reestablished their dominance. Bradley feeds Akeem Walters and he gets the easy deuce and would finish with 16 pts and would score 6 pts in a row. Andrew Ortiz gets creative to keep his team in the ballgame and it’s entertaining for sure. Rico Black comes back with long distance dial. But here comes Michael Bradley to stem the tide and at the end of 3, the Dragons lead 56 to 49. Bradley extends the lead in the 4th with this triple. Gabriel Taylor then takes advantage of the easy look. Taylor would record the only 2 doubles of the outing with 14 pts 11 rebounds and just before the game concludes, Benedict terry adds insult to injury with the one hand slam as Belize City Council takes Heritage Bank out of the running in a 78 to 56 final score to move on.

Also moving on Friday night was Belize bank Bulldogs who edged out BWS 83 to 78 in a hotly contested ballgame. On Saturday, Belize Telemedia got past Maya Man Warriors in an 85 to 82 score and Infotel also made it to the semi-finals with a convincing 84 to 56 win over Atlantic Bank.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

James Adderley And the Weekend Sporting Activities

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

We turn immediately to the Premier Football League Opening season where Week II took us to Sugar City where Orange Walk FC hosted the closing season champion Placencia Assassins inside the People’s Stadium. Folks the difference became as clear as daylight when 5 minutes in Dellon Torres catches up with this corner kick to head it home as Placencia Assassins take the earliest lead this season. Don’t blink because a minute later, Kareem Haylock deals to streaking Dion Miguel whose well placed shot makes it a 2-zip Placencia lead at the 6th minute. For OW FC, the opening minutes must have seemed like a nightmare because this individual effort by Dellon Torres affords him the opportunity to strike from the 18 line to make it a 3-nil ballgame and we;re only 9 minutes in.

Latest Sporting News with James Adderley

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

Infotel went into Game II of the BDBA Firms Division 3 game Champion Series needing only a win to own the 2016 title as they faced  the Belize Bank Bulldogs inside the BES Gym Friday night. The opening minutes displayed the tension in the ballgame, but Infotel gets going when Earl Johnson raises up to sink 2 of his 20 game points. For the Bulldogs, Mister Brian White works his way into his office down low as he grabs the rebound off Lincey Lopez miss shot and the put back is automatic. At the end of the 1st, Infotel is up 20 – 19. Infotel’s Evan Rene would have a magnificent outing Friday night and here in the 2nd quarter, he grabs the rebound and gets 2 of his game high 24 pts and guess what, he also posted a team high 18 rebounds to sport the highest efficiency rating of 39. The Belize Bank Bulldogs goes to seize the 2016 Firms title with the 80 to 68 big W and we say to the Bulldogs, yo played big. Congrats. We also say kudos to Mister Brian White who emerged with MVP honors for the playoffs while Mister Andrew Vasquez of Belize City Council Dragons walked off with the regular season MVP trophy.

Turning to the football scene…here are the results from weekend play in the PLB Opening Season. Belmopan Bandits jolted Placencia Assassins 1-zip in a stunner; Police United pummeled Freedom Fighters 3 to 1; Wagiya FC jumped all over Orange Walk United in a 6-2 blast and FC Belize stopped Verdes FC momentum in a 2-1 finish. we now turn to the OW Mundialito staged yesterday at the Louisiana Football Field where Colombia of Palmar battled Belize of Louisiana Area  for the title. The Palmar team looks to strike early against goalkeeper Kate Jones who makes the stop, but was somewhat shaken up. Fortunately, she would continue. Belize of Louisiana stays under pressure when Aldir Chi fires this set piece at Kate Jones who is forced to come up with a big time save. Colombia remains on the attack as Jaheim Augustine let’s loose this right foot and again Miss Jones remains alert. We’re into 2nd half action when Belize goes offensive with this right foot bomb from Axel Alamilla that forces Izher Carillo to punch it out; Marcus Alvarez gets the second chance but misses the target.

Sports Monday with James Adderley

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

The premier league of Belize continues to roll and the Belize City fans were treated to a rather entertaining ballgame as the B.D.F. hosted the Freedom Fighters from Punta Gorda Saturday night inside the MCC Grounds where we certainly pleased with the return of lighting to this much vaunted venue. 8 minutes into the ballgame, Vallan Symms got to display his ability to feed the offense off the set piece and Mark Arzu displayed his offensive skills by finishing the play to give the B.D.F. the 1-zip lead. Myron Cadle looks for the equalizer with the left foot punch just inside the box; goalkeeper Tevin Gamboa is forced into a tough save. The ball rebounds to Lionel Cabral and Gamboa is forced to come up with another big time save. In the meantime, the downpour affords Jaren Lambey this attempt at goal and again Gamboa holds the fort. For certain, the Freedom Fighters are in the ascendency. Devon Burgess sets up Alexander Peters and only a desperate clearance from Leon Cadle shuts down the scoring chance and at the half, B.D.F. nevertheless hangs on to the precarious 1-zip lead.

Folks, I don’t know how anyone can dispute this penalty call when leon Cadle takes down Alexander Peters inside the box—but Tevin Gamboa gets a yellow card for his unprovoked protestations. Lisbey Castillo gets the call and the conversion gives the Freedom Fighters a 2-1 lead at the 67th minute after Gamboa’s gamble failed. At the 82nd minute, Brayan Fuentes gambles with this defense stop against Keithon Dyer and loses his hit as the penalty call is made. The B.D.F.’s go to man in this situation is Vallan Symms and he freezes Anthony Williams to tie the ballgame at 2 apiece. Martinez almost gets the winner for the Freedom Fighters but Tevin Gamboa is bailed out by Charles Grant with an inadvertent pass and both teams share the points in the 2-2 score. In other action around the league; the Belmopan Bandits kept OW United winless in a 2-nil ballgame. Police United and Placencia Assassins rallied to a hotly contested 1-1 tie and FC Belize continues to shine with a 4-2 victory over Wagiya FC.

In CONCACAF Champions League news, Belize’s Police United will host Olimpia of Honduras next Thursday at 6 p.m. inside the F.F.B. Stadium to complete its rooster o matches. In 2 away outings and a home match, our team has amassed an unacceptable goal record of 18 taken and none scored. Last Thursday’s 11-nil loss to Pachuca of Mexico was simply discouraging. Yes our football is less developed than that of Mexico and Honduras, but there was no excuse for that lopsided loss. Police United is still our team and we must support our own. We will say though our team can’t afford to quit on us—not at home.

Finally folks, let’s look in on the CYDP match up yesterday at the MCC Grounds…we pick up the action in early 2nd half play when Hernandez beats Shawn Roches to this loose ball and pokes it past Raheem Baptist in the Police Street gal for the 1-zip lead. 10 minutes later, Michael Hernandez creates something out of nothing. He powers on Shawn Roches to strip him of this ball and then takes it to goal to finish with a left foot push for the 2-zip Ladyville lead. Marshall Nunez looks to get Police Street on the scoreboard with this individual effort only to see the goalkeeper foil the attempt. Meanwhile, Michael Hernandez turns provider with this pass to Joel Ottley who should have done better with this chance. And then he beats Roy Coz and displaces the goalkeeper as Ladyville FC grabs the 3-zip big win.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
