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 7˝ 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.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

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 Requeńa 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.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
