Weekend Sporting Activities with James Adderley

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

The Belmopan Bandits with 2 wins from 6 outings rolled into B.E.S. Gym Friday night here in Belize City to take on the formidable league leader, Smart Belize Hurricanes who boasted an unbeaten record of 7 straight wins going in. Darwin Leslie penetrates through heavy traffic to get the Hurricanes going early as he finds the glass for 2 of his 15 game points. Kurt “Chengo” Burgess did work for the Bandits and here he strikes for 2 and would post a 2 doubles of 15 points, 10 rebounds and led all players. At the end of the 1st quarter the Hurricanes lead 20 to 11. Nick Brown comes alive in the 2nd and he would have his best outing as a bandit tonight. However, the hurricanes have their go to man, Ty Bradley finds Farron Lauriano baseline and the bank shot falls. The response comes from Jarrel Velasquez who swishes the triple and would give the Bandits 17 points and 6 boards. Ty Bradley answers with this three pointer and would finish with 10 points. At the half the lead is still 9. We’re in the 3rd when Stephen Mark Williams drives through the Hurricanes defense untouched to lay it off the glass for 2 of his 12 game points. In this trip down court Williams finds Nick Brown who sinks the 2 pointer. Brown would finish with a team high 24 points to go along with 6 rebounds and would finish with the 2nd best efficiency rating of 28. Jarrel Velasquez spots Kyle Pascasio under the rim, Pascasio make it count and would hit 11 points. More importantly his bucket gives Belmopan its 1st lead. The Hurricanes come roaring back as Mr. MVP Farron Lauriano scores with emphasis. The city team holds on to a 5 point lead at the end of the 3rd. In this its Jacob Leslie falls short on this triple attempt. Brian White is there to finish it for 2. White would miss the 2 doubles by 2 points with a record of 8 points and shared the game high in rebounds with 14 but he had the highest efficiency rating of the night. Folks its Nick Brown who pulls the Bandits within 2 with this big 3 pointer. Darwin Leslie answers in kind for the Smart Hurricanes. When Jacob Leslie misses the easy layup Farron Lauriano slams it home and would finish with the game high 30 points and shared the lead in rebounds with 14. We’re tied at 77 apiece when Brian White misses the free throw and it’s Lauriano who regains the Hurricanes lead late in the ballgame. Down by 1 Brian white comes to this foul on Nick Brown and it proves to be a big blow for the Hurricanes. Jarrel Velasquez then hits the crucial free throws for Belmopan. The Hurricanes could not respond in the money time Belmopan bandits pick up their biggest win of the season by handing the Smart Hurricanes team its first loss of the season on a 85 – 83 final score. In other action around the league at Dangriga, the Cayo Western Ballaz blew out Belize City No Limit 81 to 67, Cayo Western Ballaz got past Independence Thunderbolts 93 to 80 leaving the home team still searching for tis first win while Smart Belize Hurricanes responded to Friday night’s loss with a 98 to 47 win over Orange Walk Running rebels on the road.

Turning to Martial Arts, Bosy 200 resented a 7 card Mixed Martial Arts showdown at the Belize Biltmore . FGolks this exchange in the 2nd round between Richard Gordon of Belize and Daniel Velasquez of Mexico shows why Gordon picks up the W in a split decision. Richard Gordon sets the decision in the heavyweight class and deserved so. Elias Meyer to your left totally demisted Luis Blanco of Mexico in the flyweight class to win the unanimous decision and there is no doubt he gets the W. Meanwhile in the welterweight, Richard Rubio would not let the decision go to the outsider. Belize goes out to post a 7 – 1 victory over the visitors.

In football news, Placencia Assassins burned Wagiya 1 – zip on Saturday at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium while at the Norman Broaster Stadium the Belmopan Bandits blasted Police United 2 – nil. Sunday’s match between B.D.F. and Verdes was postponed due to inclement weather. Looking to the weekend on Saturday the VDF travels to the Belmopan Bandits and Wagiya journeys to Placencia Assassins. On Sunday Placencia heads to the Norman Broaster Stadium to face Verdes FC.

Finally folks Sports Monday says welcome to the new FIFA president, Gianni Infantino who was elected on February 26, 2016 and will serve until 2019.

Sporting Highlights with James Adderley

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

Wagiya FC rolled into the FFB Stadium Saturday night to be hosted by a singing Belmopan Bandits. Some 15 minutes into the Belmopan team pushing the pace when Amilton sets up El Capitan Elroy Smith and really he should have done better with his look. Ian Gaynair then makes a fiery forward to deliver a perfect splice to Brandon Cacho whose header glances off the crossbar. Wagiya finally gets some offense going when Ervin Middleton finds Hassan Lucas off the set piece only to see the header travel outside the sticks. Some 30 minutes in Eugene Martinez puts fast on this set piece, credit Elroy Smith will with the direction on goalkeeper Glenford Chimilio – give the goal to Martinez as Belmopan Bandits take a 1 – zip lead. Fresh into 2nd half Amilton fires this right foot at goal in a bid to double the bandits lead goalkeeper Chimilio does enough to maintain the score. Some 8 minutes later, Jordy Polanco lands this sinker behind Glenford Chimilio as the Bandits double their lead. Folks the Bandits were simply dominating against the Dangriga team. Jordy Polanco finds Dale Pelayo Sr. who heads to Rai West and it’s a 3 – zip lead that remains to the long whistle. Belmopan remains atop the standings with 15 points, Police maintained 2nd place with 14 points after blanking Verdes 2 – zip and the BDF held on to 2nd place by stopping Placencia Assassins 3 to 1. Looking to week 9 on Saturday the 19th at 7:30 PM Placencia Assassins will host Police United inside the Michael Ashcroft. On Sunday the B.D.F. takes on a floundering Wagiya at 3:30 PM at the MCC Grounds and out west Verdes will look to right itself against a red hot Belmopan Bandits.

Now let’s play catch up on the NEBL as a monster show was staged Friday night when Smart Belize Hurricanes held home court in the BES gym against the defending champion San Pedro Tigersharks. The Hurricanes came out raging, Darwin Leslie misses the lay up so Mr. MVP Farron Lauriano powers it home with both hands. On the rebound pass Darwin Leslie finds Lauriano unattended so he shows off his long range jumper. Farron would lead all players with 29 points, and continues his doubles play with 11 rebounds and would post the highest efficiency rating with 33. Andrew Ortiz then gets busy for San Pedro as he comes down with the rebound and the point back. Ortiz would lead his team on the boards with 11 and net for 8 points. At the end of the 1st quarter the Hurricanes have spirited to a 25 – 15 lead. In the 2nd Brian White returned to his 2 double play as he grabs the rebound and hits the put back. He would tally 15 points and would chair the boards with a whopping 17 rebounds. Folks in the 2nd the Hurricanes would only score 12 points and half of it came from Farron Lauriano while San Pedro could only come up with 13 of their own for the 37 -28 at the half. In the 3rd the American Caleb Sutton takes Lauriano to school to finish the finger roll. Gene Myvette them display his shells as he attacks the run and would finish with 12 points. Andrew Ortiz then leaves Brian White hanging with this baseline move. Mr. Caleb Sutton wants 3, Mr. Caleb Sutton gets 3 and at the end of 3 the Hurricanes lead has been whittled down to 3. It’s a brand new ballgame in the 4th when Ashton Edwards lands this triple as the defending champion take a 57 – 55 lead. Talk about a big time player, Darwin Leslie comes right back with the answer and would total 9 points as he restores the Hurricanes lead. Caleb Sutton ties the ballgame with this triple. Unstoppable Brian White hangs tough down low for the bucket and would hit the freebie. Darwin Leslie then penetrates to unleash the dagger. Leroy Lauriano then takes on the San Pedro defense – he hits the layup and sinks the extra point for his 11 game total. Smart Belize Hurricanes post the 78 – 69 win for a league leading 9 and 1 record. In other results from around the league Belmopan Bandits turned Belize City No Limit 81 – 70, Cayo Western Ballaz hurt Dangriga Warriors 63 – 31 but the Warriors tool it out on the Independence Thunderbolts 111 – 77.

Changing gears folks the 38th Annual UB Relathon got off Sunday in the circle of Love and Unity with a moment of prayer. And here is the start of 48:75 miles female run from Belmopan to the ITVET Complex in Belize City. Their male counterparts are in San Ignacio for the start from Cayo to ITVET – a distance of some 67.75 miles. Hey Amanda, you posted the best time for the mile in 6 minutes, 9 seconds. Don’t look right now Wilford Usher – you put up 5 minutes, 10 seconds – the overall best but Amanda is only 1 minutes, 1 second off your pace. Nevertheless the girls won their 18th event this year, to tie then number of wins. The males finishes some 2:44 off the pace their 67.75 miles. The females are boss in 2016 but we’re tied in total wins.

Finally the Central Secondary Schools softball competition is in full swing. Latest result shows Ladyville Tech beat Wesley females 11 – 5, SJC males handles Wesley 16 to 6, Ladyville Tech then got a 12 – zip W over EP Yorke and Gwen Liz males got the 7 – 3 big W over SJC.

Football and Basketball Stats in Sports

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

The playoff picture inside the PLB closing season is taking shape but there are some crucial back matches remaining that could propel a few teams on to the inside the lane. In Belize City yesterday the Belize Defense Force made a big jump to the top of the standings in its matchup with Wagiya FC at the MCC Grounds. The B.D.F. looks to open the scoreboard early off  with this unforced error at midfield by Wagiya – Harrison Tasher is given the task to complete the possession but the right foot push is right at goalkeeper Glenford Chimilio. Mark Arzu then attacks off the right wing with this on the run blast only to find Chimilio still on top of things. The military gets a quick visit to the showers when in frustration he takes down Wagiya defense Erwin Middleton and it’s a straight red. The B.D.F. is down to 10. At the 32nd minute of the ballgame Mark Arzu mounts this inside the box and the right foot drop is perfect, Chimilio is beaten and the B.D.F. gives up 1 – zip. Five minutes later this drop finds Ricky Ricketts in stride – he easily heals Glenford Chimilio who came off his line and scores into an empty net to give the B.D.F. a 2 – zip lead.

Just before the half expires, Raymond Ramos grounds this corner kick to Harrison Tasher – the heel play finds Osmar Duran and it’s a 3 – zip lead at the intermission. In 2nd half play Harrison Tasher gets this ball to Duran whose attempt to double his tally is blocked by Erwin Middleton. Off the Griga bench Kevin Lino has this open look at goal to get Griga on to the scoreboard but Tevin Gamboa shuts him down. Yep, frustration ain’t no fun – as Middleton pushes Osmar Duran to prevent him from scoring – the referee rules penalty. Harrison Tasher gets the call only to be embarrassed by the skill of goalkeeper Glenford Chimilio. The 3 – zip holds up and the Belize Defense Force streak to the top of the standings with 17 points. In the other results from the weekend Verdes FC doubled the Belmopan Bandits 2 to 1 yesterday at the Norman Broaster Stadium in what may view as an upset. Belmopan Bandits how 15 points and will finish the season against the Placencia Assassins Thursday night. The Police are in third place with 14 points and will face the B.D.F. Thursday night at the Norman Broaster; Placencia is next with 7 points and Wagiya with 3. Meanwhile the Police and the Bandits are the only 2 teams eligible to see CONCACAF champions play and the police are in the driver’s seat on March 31st they’ll play Wagiya and on the April 2nd they conclude the season against the Placencia Assassins at the Michael Ashcroft. The BDF could win the season if they beast the Police on Thursday night and handle Verdes on Sunday April 3rd.

Turning to the basketball scene, the NEBL All Star night was staged at the UB Gym inside Belmopan Saturday night. The Wings Stop Skills Challenge boiled down to this showdown between Caleb Sutton of San Pedro Tigersharks and Leroy Lauriano of Smart Belize Hurricanes – Caleb Sutton got the nod from the judges. Marcel Orosco hit 14 shots in the final round of the 3 point contest against Nick Brown of Bandits to claim this year’s title. In the Slam Dunk Winston Pratt of Cayo Western Ballaz posted the only 50 of the night with this monster. However he was not around at money time. Andrew Ortiz of Tigersharks had the chance to take it but this offering wasn’t good enough and the win goes to Caleb Sutton of San Pedro Tigersharks whose monster dunk gave him this year’s title. As for the All Star game Caleb Sutton of San Pedro ties the proceeding with the drive through traffic as both North and South show 82 points. Ashton Edwards then knocks down the long three to give the North a 1 point lead. And then Mr. MVP Farron Lauriano gets the easy 2 down low to give the north 87 to 84 big W over the South. Lauriano struck for the game high 34 points to walk away with MVP honors. Now here is the results form league play over the weekend; Friday night Belize City No Limit showed Cayo Western Ballaz in an 85 to 61 blow out at Big Birds Isle. The Dangriga Warriors jolted Smart Belize Hurricanes 72 to 54. The San Pedro Tigersharks gobbled Independence Thunderbolts 99 to 82 and Belmopan Bandits handed Orange Walk Running Rebels a 98 to 67 loss. Games will resume on Friday April 1st after the Easter holidays.

Football, Basketball and Cycling Events in Weekend Sports

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

The 2016 PLB closing season concluded regular season play yesterday inside the MCC Grounds as the Belize Defense Force took on Verdes FC in a bid to ensure a playoff spot. Former champion Verdes with no chance to make the playoffs looked to capture some measure of respect with a win in the final appearance for the season so Ricardo Jimenez powers this left foot bomb but it just rises over the crossbar. 2 minutes later Jamil Cano picks out Gilroy Thurton who squanders the perfect opportunity to open the scoreboard. Verdes continues its ascending when Sam Mendez fires this left foot goal, Tevin Gamboa makes the initial save and then has to deny Marlon Molina. Gamboa might have had to give up his body to keep the scoreboard unmoved. Folks it seems some days are worse than others for real, Marlon Molina turns on this ball with power only to be denied by a necessary touch from the impressive Tevin Gamboa and Verdes wonders if the world is against them. At half we’re still scoreless. After intermission it’s a more offensive BDF team we find on the pitch. Mark Arzu almost moves the scoreboard with this fine looking long distance deal that forces Elroy Rawley to shine with a big time save. Hey guys what’s up with Belize’s #1 striker Deon McCauley? He’s been delegated to the Verdes bench so they send for him. Nevertheless it’s more military when Osman Duran deals perfectly to Harrison Tasher who certainly botches the finish. Keep your eyes on this set piece launch triggered by Osman Duran. Goalkeeper Rawley hangs on the ball which rebounds to Tasher who fires, the ball bounces off Rawley to Paul Nunez who passes to give the B.D.F. a 1 – zip lead. Pumped up Paul Nunez looks to make it a double with this long distance punch, but its right at Rawley who would not relinquish another. The Belize Defense Force hangs on to the 1 – zip win and are into the playoffs. In other results, the Police doubled Wagiya 2 to 1 on Thursday and then held Placencia Assassins to a 1 – 1 tie Saturday night at the Michael Ashcroft. This would have given the Police the #1 seed with 23 points and a pass to the CONCACAF Champions League. However Placencia has filed a protest accusing the Police of playing 3 ineligible players. Stay tuned we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime the Police leads going into the playoffs with 23 points, the BDF is next with 20, the Bandits 18 and Placencia makes the cut with 12 points. Verdes bows out with 10 and Wagiya with 3. Currently the Police leads the bandits 42 to 39 in the race for the CONCACAF pass which makes the playoffs even more interesting. On Saturday the Police travels to Placencia for game one of the playoffs while the B.D.F. and the Bandits also begin on Saturday at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium.

In NEBL news Smart Belize Hurricanes became the 1st team to clinch a playoff seat after hosting Belize City No Limit Friday night. No Limit got off to a good start – Keith Acosta finds Jamaal Augustine who would have a good game leading his team with 17 points. Farron Lauriano continues his MVP pace as he penetrates to get 2 for the Smart team. Lennox Bowman keeps No Limit in the ballgame as he penetrates for 2. Bowman comes back for 3 and would put up a double digit 13 points. Guess what we’ve got a real competition ballgame – at the end of the 1st Hurricanes boast a 4 point lead over No Limit. We’re in the 2nd when Michael Babbles hangs and barks for 2 of his 13 games points. So Akeem Watters gets busy and strikes for 2 of his ten points tonight. Watters would post a 2 doubles with his 11 rebounds. At the half the Hurricanes show a 39 – 33 lead. Michael Babbles cuts the lead to 1 in the 3rd with this move. Babbles deals to Jamaal Augustine who stays hot and we’re tied at 44 apiece. Smart Hurricanes grab a 4 point lead at the end of 3 thanks to Farron Lauriano who sink this easy bullet. Lauriano would finish with the game high of 23 points and would settle with 8 rebounds. In the 4th Smart Belize blows the game wide open. Leroy Lauriano with the steal goes all the way for 2 of his 11 points. Akeem Watters put back makes it a 14 point Hurricanes lead. The Hurricanes would go on to outscore No Limit 19 to 12 in the 4th to post the 74 to 63 big W and clinch the playoff seat. In other action around the league in the role of host Cayo Western Ballaz sprinted past OW Running Rebels in an 88 to 58 blowout. Belmopan Bandits victimized Belize City No Limit Saturday night to win the road game in an 82 to 67 decision.  Dangriga Warriors played big at San Pedro, roasting the Tigersharks 63 to 55. Looking ahead this weekend’s games are critical; Friday night Cayo Western Ballaz travel to Belmopan Bandits and San Pedro Tigersharks, the defending champion will be hosted by Belize City No Limit, on Saturday Smart Belize Hurricanes travel to Independence Thunderbolts while San Pedro heads to OW Running Rebels and on Sunday Independence Thunderbolts will be in OW against the Running Rebels.

In the cricket scene on Saturday we find Excellence of Double Head chasing 99 runs posted by Bright Star of Sandhill. Vernon Stephenson steps up to crash this 6 that gives Excellence the 101 to 99 victory. Stephenson would bat in 28 runs.

Finally in cycling news, 25 riders lines up for the Weekend Warriors A Class Cross Country which travelled from Loma Luz in Santa Elena Cayo to Leslie’s Import here in Belize City and here’s the start. At Ontario Village a lead pack of 5 have an 11 second lead over the peloton featuring Preston Martinez, Kent Gabourel, Robert Mariano, Daniel Cowo and Kariem Flowers. It’s Kent Gabourel of Kulture Tours who steps out to grab the premie at Garbutt gas Station in Roaring Creek. The lead 5 remains intact through to Hattieville. Around mile 11 Daniel Cowo is the sole leader aster extracting himself around mile 13. These 2 riders, Kent Gabourel and Robert Mariano are in hot pursuit. Folks we apologize to the winner Kent Gabourel of Santino’s and to Robert Mariano of Digicell 4G who gave him a run for his money at the tape – I’m afraid we had camera problems. They were clocked at 2 hours, 44 minutes, 45 seconds in the 68 mile ride. Kent Bob Gabourel of Kulture Tours rolls in uncontested for 3rd place. Kareem Flowers of Santino’s jumped out of the 4 man pack to grab 4th place, Preston Martinez of Kulture Megabytes finished 5th, Gilroy Robinson and Isaiah Willacy finished 6th and 7th respectively. In the B Class which for 48 miles Ryan Willoughby of Smart took top honors, Santiago Castillo of Santino’s finished 2nd and Steven Robinson of Caribbean Tires rounds out the top 3. While in the C Class Edward Plank of Stationery House grabbed the win in the 40 miles ride in 1 hour 53 minutes and 12 seconds, Gerald Humes of Digicell 4G took 2nd and Morales of Caribbean Tires 3rd.

Football and Basketball Stats with James Adderley

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

The 4 team playoffs in the PLB Closing season got off with a bang on Saturday with all 4 teams seeing action. At the Isidoro Beaton Stadium the Belmopan Bandits hosted the surging Belize Defense Force in game 1 of a 2 game series that takes one of them into the championship round. We continue to marvel at the best venue in Belize. In money time the game of football goes to the next level. Humberto Requena sends this ball into the danger zone and BDF’s keeper Tevin Gamboa is forced to give up his body to make a needed intervention. Elroy Smith of the bandits is next to get shaken up in this midfield lash with Raymond Ramos and all we can say is ouch! Folks the military with its first legit chance to open the scoreboard when this weak defensive clearance gives Shane Flores the opportunity to unleash this diving bomb that’s not far off and the defensive attempt to clear almost creates the auto goal forcing goalkeeper Shane Orio to preach caution. This awakes the home team. Khallil Velasquez unattended lets loose the left foot atop the 18 and isn’t too far off from the target. 17 minutes in Jordy Polanco picks out Kevin Johnson and the left side who fires from inside the box. Tevin Gamboa should have handed this one. He didn’t. Belmopan Bandits take the 1 – zip lead. In the meantime Khalil Velasquez’s corner kick is right on the money. Ian Gaynair cometh with the header and Belmopan grabs the 2 – zip lead at the 27th minute. We’re in the 2nd half play when Marlon Mesa volleys this all and goal only to see it rise over the crossbar. The BDF then gets this chance to finally move the scoreboard when Paul gets this open look but the ball doesn’t bend enough to cause Shane Orio too much problem. Folks this long distance set piece launch by Captain Elroy Smith is a beauty but it’s not good enough to give the Bandits a 3 – zip lead. It’s more Belmopan when Khalil Velasquez gives Kevin Johnson the opportunity to double his total only his turn on the ball is hindered by the defensive effort from Tevin Gamboa. Hey you football fans this is as majestic a goal you will see and it comes off the boots of Rickey who hands it from an acute angle to get the BDF on to the scoreboard. Meanwhile Paul Nunez is the fortunate pone with the chance to square the score at 2 a piece but close power over placement. Belmopan Bandits hang on to the 2 – 1 big W but this playoff is being staged under CONCACAF Championship rules which makes this score a technical draw due to the away goal. Game 2 of the series comes to the MCC Grounds this Sunday 3:30 PM. Two teams enter on team makes it to the championship round even if we must go to penalty kicks. In the other semi-final match Police United travelled to Placencia on Saturday and walked away with a 3-2 big W over Placencia Assassins. The Assassins will have its work cut out in game 2 inside the Norman Broaster Stadium facing a 6 – 2 deficit. Game time is 4:00 PM. By the way guys Police United gets all 3 points from last Thursdays disputed win against Placencia and it propels them to the CONCACAF Championship series. We say congratulations.

In other football news, play in the Orvin Stud Hendricks Tournament say Sinbad double Barrio Boy 2 to 1 at the Trial Farm Football Field. Looking to April 17th a triple header is on the schedule. Progresso faces Trail Farm New Site, Barrio Boys take on Untouchables and Trinidad Levis take aim at Trail Farm Uprising.

In Table Tennis news Latrell Solis overcame Carlos Cui to take the A Division title in the 2016 RFG National Ranking Tournament staged at BES Auditorium yesterday. Taye Perkinson snatched 3rd place. Amiri Hoare emerged the B Division champion after rolling past Joshua Gegg with Taye Perkinson again settling for 3rd place while Kevin Chun beat Robert Pagaranic to win the C Division title and Tarique Reyes finished third.

Turning to the NEBL scene, a deadly serious San Pedro Tigersharks arrived at Big Birds Isle o face the Belize City No Limit and they went to work immediately. Gene Myvette deals to Caleb Sutton who stays with the interception and deals to Paul Roches who strikes for 2 of his 13 game points and would also pull 9 rebounds. Gregg Rudon stops the bleeding going left to the glass for 2 of his team high 15 points, leading his team in efficiency rating with 14. At the end of the 1st the visitor leads 18 to 10. Gregory Rudon starts off the 2nd with this triple but would go 3 for 12 from beyond the arc. Marcel Orosco would cut the deficit to 4 in the quarter with this effort. Hitting the shot on the foul, but misses the and 1. The score shows 19 to 15. It would be the closest No Limit would get. Jamal Kelly looks up to find, Gene Myvette unattended. Myvette would get the easy dance and would lead all players with 5 assist, pull 10 boards and sink 6 points and would lead all players with an efficiency of 20. Douglas Valley spots up for the triple and hit it and would put up 9 points, going 3 for 9 beyond the arc after hitting 3 in a row. At the half San Pedro leads by 9. In the 3rd the visitors extend the lead to 22 – Gene Myvette finds Caleb Sutton and he banks it for 2. Caleb would lead the Tigersharks with the game high of 20 points. Myvette intercepts this pass by Danny Reynolds and goes all the way to slam it home. Raul Roches would cap a run of 13 unanswered points with this in your face dunk by Raul Roches for the 22 point lead. Gregory Rudon leads the charge back by No Limit with this triple. Keith Acosta also dialed long range and would score double digit 10 points and pull 7 boards. Kevin Domingo then gets into the 3 point barrage with this offering for 3 of his 6. At the end of 3 San Pedro lead is 13. The defending champion San Pedro goes on to post the 68 to 55 final score and are into the playoffs as the #3 seed after crushing OW Running Rebels 89 – 49 in the end of a back to back. Of course the Smart Belize Hurricanes are the #1 seed with, Dangriga Warriors 2nd and Belmopan Bandits makes it in at the 4th spot. As soon as we get the post season schedule we’ll pass it on. There are a couple ballgames to compete the season. On Friday Smart Belize faces Belize City No Limit; San Pedro Tigersharks travels to Belmopan Bandits and Cayo Western Ballaz take on Orange walk Running Rebels. On Saturday Belmopan Bandits goes on to face Independence Thunderbolts and the Running Rebels travel to San Pedro. On Sunday Independence come to Belize City No Limit and Dangriga Warriors take on Running Rebels at Orange Walk. We must mention that while the 4 playoff teams have emerges these ballgames could affect the seedings. In other scores from over the weekend Smart Belize Hurricanes beat Independence 92 – 64 and then hurt Orange Walk Running Rebels 72 – 59 who were also defeated 89 – 49 by San Pedro.

Sports: Football, Basketball, Cricket & the Strong Man Competition

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

It was always going to be a tense affair inside the   MCC Grounds for Game 2 of the PLB semi-finals as both combinations came in yesterday tied in goal aggregate after Belmopan Bandits got a 2-1 home win against a competitive Belize Defence Force. For the B.D.F. a draw would not do while Belmopan would be quite content with a stalemate which would provide them the ticket to the championship round. Belmopan Bandits take control of the action early as Humberto Requeña looks for the far corner of the B.D.F. goal with this right foot splice that forced a necessary touch from goalkeeper Tevin Gamboa. Elroy Smith then launches this set piece into the danger zone and it does provide some work for Mr. Gamboa. The bandits continue to dominate and this left foot launch from last week’s goal scorer Kerwin Johnson almost opens the scoreboard. He’s disappointed and should be. Captain Elroy Smith looks to get the necessary away goal off this set piece but puts the ball too close to the wall. Folks here’s a bad decision by goalkeeper Gamboa. He comes off his line and takes down Jerome James inside the box and the referee rules penalty. Tevin gets the opportunity to neutralize his error when Elroy Smith steps for the penalty kick. It’s not a well placed penalty and Gamboa does get his mitts on it but it’s not enough to deny the Belmopan Bandits a 1 – zip lead at the 45th minute. Not unexpectedly the Bandits go defensive after intermission. The B.D.F. begin to press and this effort from Leon Cadle almost pays off but the Belmopan defense get a lucky break. On the next press Cadle somehow finds Ricky Ricketts who squanders a golden opportunity. For sure Leon Cadle came to play and when he is presented with this chance to score he makes the most of it beating Shan Orio to make it a 1 – 1 ballgame at the 78th minute. This forces the Bandits to go offensive and now Jerome Jenkins fails to double the Bandits lead is a mystery. In the meantime Ian Gaynair is not too far off with this header in an attempt to secure the Bandits win. Kerwin Johnson then sets up Marlon Mesa perfectly and Mesa misses from pointblank range. Nevertheless Belmopan Bandits move on with the 1 – 1 tie after defeating the B.D.F. in game 1 last week. The Bandits will face Placencia Assassins for the 2016 Closing Title who came up with a remarkable game at the Norman Broaster Stadium yesterday against the heavily favored Police United. Placencia came up with 3 – 2 win to match the Police win in game one forcing the match into overtime. In fact the series was decided on penalty kicks – both teams after missing the 1st penalty kicks went for 7 straight. The Assassins scored the 9th while the Police missed and we congratulate Placencia Assassins who will now face Belmopan Bandits for the title. Game 1 is set for Saturday night inside the Michael Aschroft stadium, Independence.

In other football news U-13 action at the Orange Walk technical on Saturday saw Tillett Young School beat Black Water 1 – nil, Orange Walk Central Stars got past Corozal Rising Stars in a 1 – nil affairs and Maggie’s Vibes Alive routed Trial Farm Black Water 5 – zip.

Now let’s check in on the strong man competition staged yesterday at the B.T.L. Park which attracted a throng of fans. Oyinkro Akpobador was truly impressive in the show of strength and he certainly turned heads. Victor Valencia was able to hang on to 2nd place and James Jones settled for 3rd. In the female side Cricel Castillo took 1st place over China Alvarez. Only 2 females answered the call.

In the meantime the 5th annual Ariel Rosado Belize Ride left Galen University at 6:00 AM on Saturday and finished at 1:00 PM at the Hour Bar here in Belize Coty. Ariel Rosado was a rising star on the cycling scene when his life was cut short in a motor vehicle accident.

Listen people this will be a most interesting pair of ballgame. Meanwhile on Friday night in Belize City the #4 seed Dangriga warriors will take aim at the #1 see Smart Belize Hurricanes and then travel to Dangriga for game 2 on Saturday night. Hurricanes are the favorite going in but it’s never over till it’s over. The 2 series winners will then move on to the championship round. Enjoy.

Football and Basketball Stats and More with James Adderley

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

We take you out to the Michael Ashcroft Stadium at Independence where game one of the PLB Closing Season champion series got off with a bang on Saturday night. Folks we’re pleased to see the next generation of Belizean footballers incorporated into the opening ceremonies and it could well signal we’re coming of age. Immediately into the ballgame, the host team, Placencia Assassins give notice to the Belmopan Bandits that they’re in it to win it when Ashley Torres forces Shane Orio to provide a necessary touch on this long distance punch. The Bandits reply 7 minutes later when Ian Gaynair floats this ball into the mouth of the goal to find Jerome James who is denied by a spectacular intervention by Assassin’s keeper, Anthony Williams.

When Kareem Haylock floats this ball into the Bandits defense area, the Placencia team hollered for a penalty as Humberto Requena hand the ball, but a closer look shows that Delon Torres had hit the ball with his hand. It’s all good no call by the referee. This next sequence from the Assassins can only be described as a raid – Kareem Haylock grounds this ball to Delon Torres who fails to connect, giving Luis Torres a chance with the right foot push which beats Shane Orio who is rescued by Khalid Velasquez and the Placencia team comes up empty. At the other end, Kerwin Johnson gets the chance to put the Bandits up 1-nil only to be failed by Anthony Williams who comes off his line to get the ball out of danger. In 2nd half play, Brandon Cacho is on the move for the Bandits until Colin Westby intervenes. Fresh off the bench, Ashton Torres ventures into the 18to fire this at the Bandits goal, but he’s off target. Folks it’s a hard fought ballgame but this move by Khalid Velasquez on Delon Torres draws a 2nd yellow card and the ejection leaves him out of game two of this championship series.

Finally, we slow down this picture for you to determine if Jerome James’ hand or face was hit by the ball. The referee says it’s his face and his decision is the only one that counts as the whistle closes the show in a scoreless ballgame. Game II is set for this Saturday night at 7:30 inside the Isidoro Beaton Stadium. This time, however, someone’s got to win and someone’s got to lose, even if we have to go to the penalty spot.

In other football news, play in the Smart Mundialito on Saturday saw Reality Youth and Lacey of Belize battle to a scoreless draw. Collet Strikers blanked Ladyville Jaguars 2-zip; City Boys burned Rising Stars 1-zip; Heights FC and Carlston settled for a nil-nil score while Young Warriors and Hattieville Riverside finished with that same score. But in the Simeon Lopez Youth Football Tournament, yesterday saw YWAM Valencia and Spanish Lookout battle to a 2-2 stalemate. Central Site Bandits doubled San Martin Medina 2 to 1 and Salvapan beat Mountain View Revolution 1-zip.

Turning to NEBL basketball, the 2 finalists emerged over the weekend so we take you to the BES Gym here in Belize City where the #1 seed, Smart Belize Hurricanes hosted the #4 seed, Dangriga Warriors Friday night. Darwin Leslie got the Hurricanes going early with this triple from the right side and would put 13 tonight. However, Dangriga’s Daniel Nolberto was a man on a mission Friday as he banks in this bucket to keep his team in the fight. You think Mister Nolberto was playing, watch this spots up to sink this shot from beyond the arc. Daniel would lead Dangriga with a team high 26 pts and would obtain the 2nd highest efficiency rating of 30 in this ballgame. At the end of the first, we’re knotted at 20 apiece. Down by 8 in the 2nd quarter, Jamir Flores strikes for 3 to get the Warriors jiggy and put up 11 pts in this one. Hey folks, at the half, the Hurricanes lead is 3. In the 3rd quarter, Griga makes a run….Edgar Mitchell pulls up for 3 and would finish with 14 pts.

Jamir Flores who gives the Warriors the first lead of the night with this bucket; Jacob Leslie answers with 2 of his 18 pts. And then comes back with this triple. At the other end, the American James Erving is well positioned for the easy bucket but he would finish with an impressive 25 pts. And now he takes Farron Louriano to school to give Dangriga a 66 to 62 lead at the end of 3. Farrom Louriano gets revenge in the 4th as he slams one past Events. Louriano come back with this monster slam and would put up some impressive numbers like the game high 34 pts, the game high of 15 rebounds, shooting 100% from the free throw line and the highest efficiency rating of 44.

Clancy Lopez also got busy driving through the heart of the Griga defense to sink 2 of his game 14 pts. Yes it is all Hurricanes in the closing moments, but it ends on an ugly note. Daniel Nolberto is victimized by a flagrant foul from Darwin Leslie and there’s no excuse for this kind of play. Nolberto would take at least five minutes to recover his consciousness and could return. Puppy Leslie is my boy, but he’s just wrong and should have been ejected. Smart Belize Hurricanes goes on to win the game 93 to 82. Smart Belize completed the sweep on Saturday at Dangriga in a 79 to 72 final score and move to the championship round. We say congratulations. They’ll meet the 2-time defending champion, San Pedro Tigersharks who posted a 58-55 victory Thursday night at the capital city and then swept the Belmopan Bandits out at the Island, Saturday night 70 to 55. Game I of the 3-game championship begins Friday night with the Hurricanes hosting San Pedro Tigersharks and on Saturday, the Hurricanes face their opponent out on the island. Should a game three be necessary, it will be staged at the BES Gym here in Belize City.

Finally in Weekend Warriors Cycling News, Warren Cote of Santino’s took the Chief Pawpa, Palas Sunday race yesterday with Preston Martinez of Kulture Megabytes 2nd and Kirk Sutherland of Digicell 4G rounds out the top 3.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

Football and Basketball Stats in Weekend Sports

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

Game 2 of the NEBL Championship series saw Smart Belize Hurricanes confidently sail to scenic San Pedro Saturday night to close out the 3 game series against the two time defending champion San Pedro Tigersharks after that impressive 93 – 84 win last Friday in Game 1. Douglas Valley led San Pedro to a quick 8 – zip run – he sneaks in for this rebound to bank it home and then lands this triple from the left side and would finish with 20 points, 5 rebounds. Farron Lauriano gets fed by little brother Leroy. Farron would work 3 the hard way to narrow the score. At the end of the first piece opening quarter the defending champs lead 34 tp 28. Folks in Game 2 Ashton Edwards finally broke out with a mighty bang as he moved Darwin Leslie out of the way to score this 3 pointer. Caleb Sutton then beats everybody baseline to hammer home 2 of his 8 game points. However Farron Lauriano kept the Hurricanes churning as he grabs this board to execute the put back. Farron would sink 30 points, pulled 6 rebounds and receive the highest efficiency rating of 42. Never the less at the half the Tigersharks show a 53 to 48 lead. In the 3rd quarter Edwards remain hot so he hits the triple, would go 5 for 11 from beyond the arc and would tie for the game high with Farron Lauriano after petting up 30 points. Down by 8 Darwin Leslie gets busy so he streaks in for 2 of his 15 game points. Andrew Ortiz of the Tigersharks also had a good night and here he goes to the finger roll for 2 of his 18 points and would lead all players with 8 rebounds. Jacob Leslie replies with this triple and puts up 9 points for the Hurricanes. At the end of 3 the home team boasts a 6 point lead. In the final quarter it’s all San Pedro as Ashton Edwards pulls back and gets the bounce to loud the triple. Jamal Kelly then sets the table or Andrew Ortiz to rise up to a thunderous two hand dunk. Darwin Leslie keeps the Hurricane in the hunt beating all 5 defenders to the rim. In the meantime when you’re hot, you’re hot; Ashton Edwards misses the jumper but is fortunate to come up with the rebound and the deuce is automatic. Mr. Andrew Ortiz strikes again and Douglas Valley pouts the nail in the coffin with emphasis as San Pedro Tigersharks post the 101 – 88 big W to knot the series at 1 apiece. The decisive game 3 is set for 9 PM Friday, May 13 inside the BES Gym, home of the Hurricanes. Two teams enter one leaves with the 2016 title. Can San Pedro make it 3 wins in a row or will the Hurricanes pick up the title in its first try? Stay tuned!

Turning to the football scene, we caught up with the Belize District ballgame staged at the MCC Grounds yesterday as Lake I Strikers took on Star Academy. Thirty-six minutes in Oscar Usher of Lake I Strikers hands the ball inside the box and concedes a penalty. Steven Baizar steps up and easily seek goalkeeper Giovanni Moody for the 1 –zip stars academy lead. In the 2nd half Whitfield Fisher beats the Stars Academy keeper to this ball centered into the goalmouth to force the 1 – 1 regulation time. Hey guys a number on your jersey is for proper identification. In the other match up PC Elite double Eiley FC 2 – 1. Now let’s check in on the Smart Under-13 Mundialito session Saturday at the MCC Grounds as Ladyville Jaguars took on Face of Belize. Ladyville Jaguar gets the first god look at goal when D’Jon Canelo dances his way through traffic but fails to finish the play. In 2nd half action Kaseem Santos is at the right place to give face of Belize the opener only to be denied by goalkeeper Elroy Arnold. Its late in the ballgame when D’Jon Canelo finally competes the play when he beats one defender and then forces with the left foot to give Ladyville jaguars the 1 – zip win.  The other game saw Brown Bomber when Eldon Byrd force at goal, the ball is misplayed by a Reality Youth defender who concedes the dreaded auto save. Goal #2 come when Eldon Byrd drops the ball into the box; Kadeem Bowen gets there with a header and steers it into the empty net. At the other end Curtis August could put Reality Youth on the scoreboard but this shot is right at the keeper. Jaylen Byrd then mounts this individual effort and beats everyone including the goalkeeper to give Brown Bombers the 3 – nil victory In other results from Saturday, City Boys blanked Heights FC 2 – zip, Young Warriors torched Collet Striker 1 – zip and Carlston FC beat Ladyville Rising Stars by that same score. looking ahead to May 14 Hattieville Riverside Boys takes on Reality Youths, Brown Bombers aim at Heights, Ladyville Jaguars battle Young Warriors, Ladyville Rising Starts go up against Face of Belize and Carlston FC matches up with City Boys.

Special Edition Sports Wednesday – Football and Softball Stats

Good evening, I’m James Adderley with a Wednesday edition of Sports Monday. You know some days are better than others so let’s jump into the action.

Monday’s Belize City 1st Division Football matchup saw Lake I strikers and Ladyville Jaguars take aim at each other in a hotly contested ballgame. Under heavy pressure, Whitfield Fisher tries to open the scoreboard for Lake I Strikers, but the ball eventually rolls past the far corner. However, Ladyville Jaguars look just as dangerous off this set piece launch that sees two attempts at goal go by the wayside. The real opening for the Jaguars comes when the Strikers left-back commits this blatant foul inside the box and the referee rules penalty. Joel Ottley gets the call and easily leaves goalkeeper Keron Miguel immobile as Lake I Strikers take a 1-zip lead at the 33rd minute. Eight minutes later Lake I Strikers back off this individual effort by Kadeem Myers who escapes into the box to fire a right foot slice that rebounds off goalkeeper, Nigel Grant, right back to the striker and this time, the left foot does the trick to tie the score at one apiece.

In early 2nd half play, Joel Ottley tries for the double off this set piece only to be denied by Keron Miguel in goal. At the 65th minute of play, Whitfield Fisher launches this solo flight to beat all in his way, including the goalkeeper, to give Lake I a 2-1 lead. Fisher comes back looking for more with this wicked left foot launch, but this time, is denied by a tough save from Nigel Grant. Lake I Strikers goes on to grab the 2-1 big win in regulation play. In the other matchup results, West Lake burned Fort George in a 1-zip blast on a goal from Devaun Zuniga.

Now let’s check in on the Smart Mundialito at the MCC Grounds on Saturday as Collet Strikers took on Carlston FC. Brandon Smith beats his man to give Collet Strikers an early 1-zip lead. It’s certainly Brandon Smith’s day because 8 minutes later, he shakes the net again to give Collet Strikers a 2-zip lead. However, Carlston FC comes roaring back on this goal from #9 Linsford Nunez. Brandon Smith looks to restore the 2 goal lead with this left foot punch, but is denied by the crossbar. Jevon Theus then ties the ballgame at 2-apiece with this left foot offering, forcing the teams to share the points.

In the nightcap, Ruben Darius powers this ball into the back of the net to give Hattieville Riverside Boys a 1-nil lead over Heights FC. Less than a minute later, Jose Almendarez skillfully guides this ball into the near corner to give Hattieville Riverside Boys a 2-nil victory over Heights FC.

Meanwhile in other results: City Boys got goals from Kayia Requeña and Rashid Lord to hand Race of Belize a 2-zip defeat. Young Warriors rallied past Reality Youths by that same score on goals.

Turning to the softball scene; perennial rivals Belize Bank Bulldogs and Belize Telemedia Limited faced off yet again on Friday in the Belize City Female Softball Competition. We’re in the 2nd inning when B.T.L. pitcher Martha Rhys runs into trouble—Cindy Joseph smacks this ball through the hole to get Marsha Wills home and would score 3 runs. In the 5th inning, B.T.L. rallies. Ashley Lucas is touched with bases loaded as Earlene Belisle is allowed to reach 1st base on what should have been an out. Lydia Cacho then produces a perfect bunt to bring home Kemani Williams. Norecia Frazer then swings for the fences to bring home Earlene Belisle to tie the ballgame at 3-apiece. In the bottom of the 6th, Mary Flowers is hit by Lynette Staines for what should have been an out. Yuko Tanakgama fumbles and pinch runner Janeka Hilton speeds home. Belize Bank Bulldogs takes the win in a 4-3 score.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
