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.

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.

Football, Volleyball and Softball News on Sports Monday

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

Undefeated FC Belize took on a surging BDF team yesterday as the Premier League of Belize season heats up. Ryan Simpson looks to give FC Belize off this set piece launch only to see goalkeeper, Glenford Chimilio come up with a routine save. Jorge Aleman then unleashes this right foot shot that screams past goalkeeper Chimilio, but the far upright proves to be the goalkeeper’s best friend. At the other end, Paul Nunez fires from point blank range; it’s right at the keeper, Rodrigo Vasquez who makes the initial stop and Francis Arana completes the save. Here’s the big question at the 55th minute of play – did goalkeeper Chimilio put a hurt on Ryan Simpson? Well the referee points to the penalty spot. Oliver Hendricks gets the call and he squeezes it past the near upright to tie the ballgame despite a gallant effort by the keeper. Nevertheless, the real controversy comes when Hubert Baptist pushes Mark Arzu – it’s a 50-50 call. Oliver Hendricks cannot contain his opposition and must have said something that causes the referee to red card him off the field. The man in the middle is then surrounded by upset FC players and we’re thankful the moment passes. The BDF tries to capitalize on the numerical advantage. Jeremy Gentle sends this set piece into the danger and it might have been Mark Arzu who gets off this header that forces Rodrigo Vasquez into a necessary save.

In CONCACAF Champions League news, Police United completed its schedule Thursday night at Belmopan with a 5-1 loss to Olimpia of Honduras. Well, on a goal from John King. We got a goal and took 23. Look at the bright side; we got a goal.

The fans were out in massive numbers Friday night to support the national male volleyball team in its effort to win a 1st medal at this level. The hurdle to get past was the national team of Honduras in the World Championship qualifying tournament. It was a great start for our boys in the opening as they quickly ran to a 25-16 victory over Honduras in the race to see who would secure the 1st 3 wins. Now let’s go inside the pivotal set. We’re tied at 15 apiece when this defensive effort of Elton Anderson and Ean Galvez gives our team the lead. This power smash by Brighton Codd pushes the lead to 3. Honduras comes back to take the lead so the set up goes to power puncher, Karym Coleman, who hammers home to tie the score at 20 apiece. Talk about hammer, this is what makes Karym Coleman exceptional as he increases his points count. Brighton Codd shows perfect timing to tie the score at 24 apiece. And then he finishes the 2nd set with this nice placement touch as Belize rallies to 26-24 win to break the back of the Honduran team. It’s hard comeback from 2 down in a race to 3. Naturally, the 3rd set was cool runnings and Marlon Salazar comes up with this massive smash to get Belize within 1 point of the bronze medal. Under this pressure, Honduras gives up the win on a giveaway off the serve. Belize wins its 1st ever medal in 16 years of international volleyball and we say congratulations.

In softball news, the 2 bitter rivals were at it yet again as Belize Bank Bulldogs and BTL emerged to face off in the finals of the National Softball Tournament yesterday. BTL arrived with a clean sheet which forced Belize Bank to come up with back to back wins and they did. They took Game I, 12 to 7, and in the decisive Game II, they beat BTL 9 to 2 to win three consecutive national titles in a row. Sharette Vernon of the Bulldogs emerged as MVP.

Monday Sports: Football, Cycling, Bodybuilding and Basketball

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

PLB Football found Police United FC hosting its bitter rival Belmopan Bandits inside the Norman Broaster Stadium yesterday in the west. We’re 22 minutes in when Elroy Smith powers this set piece at goal; Amin Guerra’s defensive stretch slices the ball away from Jose Mil Dos Santos and the Bandits take a 1-zip lead. John King looks for the equalizer for the Police with this header only to see the ball bouncing past the near upright. At the other end, Aloisio Teixera gets the chance to double the Belmopan lead but this time, Santos comes up with a necessary save.

At the 31st minute, John King punch at goal atop the eighteen is poorly handled by Shane Orio; Kafu Roches recovers for the Police and picks out Devon Makin whose header forces the 1-1 tie. 7 minutes into 2nd half, the Police Defense allows Aloisio Teixera to get this touch inside the box; Santos cannot control. Outside of nowhere, Jairo Roches beats all to the ball and Belmopan Bandits take a 2-1 lead thanks to his push that hits the back of the net. Teixera then gets this shot to get on the scoreboard, but his launch is right at Santos. The Police send for Danny Jimenez and he should have done better in this one on one situation against goalkeeper Orio.

Dalton Thomas then gets this chance at the equalizer; Orio couldn’t handle the shot, but is rescued by his defense. Jairo Roches could push the Bandits lead to 3 instead he is upstaged by a great save from Santos. The Bandits would hang on to the 2-1 big win and remain undefeated. In other results from the weekend, the Placencia Assassins marched past OW FC 4 to 1; Verdes FC blanked Freedom Fighters 2-ip on a pair from Jarret Davis and the B.D.F. scorched Wagiya FC in a 1-zip sizzler.

In cycling news, the Belmopan City Council staged a massive cycling race yesterday at the Capital. On the ladies side, Alicia Thompson dominated the 20 laps ride and here she completes her sweep of the station prizes. If that wasn’t enough, Alicia Thompson rode to the finish line uncontested in a time of 51 minutes 25:44 seconds riding for Belize Bank Swoosh. 3 minutes later, Gina Lovell of Digicell 4G beats out Lisa Berger of El Pecador and Taralee Ordonez of Belize Bank Swoosh in that order. While Paulita Chavarria of C Ray rounds out the top 5. Meanwhile, 26 riders suited up for the youths and juniors 20-lap race, but it settled into a 5 man lead. In money time, Ernest Bradley, riding unattached, takes Shawn Codd to the races for top honors and yes, Ernet enjoys the moment.

Gian Lino then rides in uncontested for 3rd place. The weekend warriors also participated in the all day event and 16 riders are off. Without a trace of doubt, Kent Gabourel dominates this event as he takes all 3 station prizes in a sweep. And then its cruise control into taking top honors in the 25 laps. We’ll just have to call him Mister Kent Gabourel of Kulture Tours Megabytes who won in 56:22:20. 2 minutes later, the battle for the runner up spot rages—and it’s Preston Martinez edging out Daniel Cano of Santino’s. Meanwhile, the 40 lap feature brought out 40 of the most talented riders in the elite class and it wouldn’t be a walk in the park for anybody. Byron Pope grabs the 10-lap prize. Orvin Middleton claims the 20-lap premie; Geovanni Lovell of Digicell steps up the 30-lap win and it’s John Borland of Digicell 4G grabbing the 35th lap station prize. Now here comes money time and its Brandon Cattouse riding for Smart with the big win, forcing Joslin Chavarria of Westrac Alliance into 2nd. Geovanni Lovell of Digicell 4G is 3rd. Nissan Arana of Westrac Alliance is 4th, while Byron Pope of bennys rounds out the top 5. Certainly was a good day for cycling.

In bodybuilding news, we say hats off to Oyinkro Akpobodor who represented Belize in the 8th annual NPC?FBB Dayana Cadeau Classic staged at Miami, Florida on October 21st to the 23rd. And with his sizzle to the chisel finished 1st in novice physique, 2nd in open class physique and 3rd in classic physique. Now how do you like them results.

Turning to the basketball scene, undefeated Jumanji in 25 and under play of Sugar City Hoops blew past Devils in a 24 pt blowout yesterday. Roman Alvarez of the Devils kept his team in the ballgame early, knocking down this triple and would finish with the game high of 14 pts. Shemar White answers for Jumanji with this finger roll finish for 2 of his 11 pts. At the end of the 1st quarter, Jumanji is down by a point. Late in 2nd quarter play,  Flowers gives Jumanji the lead with the overhead lay off the glass. It would be Elias Crawford who sinks this three pointer from the left side to make it a 46 to 33 lead at the end of 3. In the 4th quarter, it’s all Jumanji; Shemar White deals to Michael Shaw off the steal and Shaw has an uncontested bucket. Alvarez continues to play big for Devils, but he needed a whole lot of help. Elias Crawford ranges for another triple and Jumanji would post the 74 to 50 final score.

On the U-17 undercard, Kristan Puerto scored 22 pts and pulled 10 boards to lead East Coast Ballerz to a 54 to 49 victory over Technical High School despite a 38 pt performance from Clinton Shaw.

Premier League Football and Weekend Warriors Cycling on Sports Monday

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

We take you out to the MCC Grounds for week 12 in the PLB Opening Season and it brought quite a contest between FC Belize and Verdes FC here in the city as both teams took to ensure an appearance in the 4-team playoff. FC Belize looks for the opener off the corner kick that Ryan Simpson bends into the goal but Elroy Rawley in the Verdes goal gets on top of it. Again it’s the home team using the set piece to move the scoreboard and while Hector Martinez launches the ball over the wall, it was never going to beat Rawley. So we go to 2nd half and Russell Casanova looks to place it in the far corner of Rawley’s goal and does not quite accomplish the mission. We’re not quite sure what Ricardo Jimenez was thinking, but this take down of Hector Martinez inside the bar at the 78th minute leads to the penalty call from the referee. Jordi Lopez gets the call and freezes Rawley to give FC Belize the 1-zip lead.

This matchup was always a physical affair. Jarret Davis battles Andrew Estell for a strike at goal. Estell appears to beat Davis to the ball while at the other side, Ricardo Jimenez is blatantly fouled – the referee rules Estell is to be charged with a high foot foul. Sorry guys, maybe something is wrong with our picture or we have lying eyes. At the 88th minute, goleador Jarret Davis steps up and he delivers a wonderful penalty that is world class and we’ve got a 1-1 ballgame. Of course, you know the FC Belize team is somewhat furious with the man in the middle but cooler heads prevailed. Hey folks, the referee certainly loses control of the ballgame in the waning minutes and things could have gotten real ugly that he is now unable to make the necessary decisions. So Mark Leslie decides to test the referee with this flagrant foul on Jarret Davis for which he deservedly gets a yellow card which could have been red. I guess all exhaled when the long whistle brought this matchup to an end with the 1-1 tie.

In other results…break out the champagne for OW FC as they picked up their 1st season win with a 4-1 torching of Wagiya FC. The Belmopan bandits stretched their lead atop the league with a 4-zip rout of the once mighty Placencia Assasins and Police United exploded in a 6-3 downing of Freedom Fighters FC. With 5 matches remaining, Belmopan Bandits leads with 29 pts from an undefeated 9 wins and 2 draws. FC Belize is next with 21 pts from 6 wins, 3 stalemates and a loss. Verdes FC shows 20 with 5 matches remaining; Placencia Assassins remains in the hunt with 17; the Belize Defense Force also haws 17 pts and Police United has 14 pts with 6 matches to go. Wagiya FC shows 10 pts and would have to win its remaining 5 ballgames to sneak in. Freedom Fighters with 4 pts and OW United with 3 have been mathematically eliminated.

We also have the Saturday U-17 championship match that saw Hattieville Riverside Boys battling Young Warriors for the title. Early in the ballgame, this crucial left foot from Richard Hines gives Hattieville the 1-zip lead. Give some props to Jaden McGregor who beats the keeper with this magnificent goal to give Hattieville a 2-zip lead. In 2nd half play, Hines gets this chance to double his tally but the shot is direct to keeper Shawn Billary. Kenroy Linarez could get Young Warriors on the board, but is denied by Goalkeeper Jason Cho. The man to get Young Warriors on the board is Kyle Samuels whose left foot tangles in the back of the net. Nevertheless, it’s the Hattieville Riverside Boys with the 2-1 big win and the U-17 Championship and we say congratulations. The best defense was awarded to Michael Robinson of Hattieville. Best midfield went to Dion Cacho of Young Warriors and Jaden McGregor of Hattieville emerged with MVP honors. Good show guys.

In cycling news, former Cross Country Champion Collet Maheia celebrated his birthday with the presentation of race yesterday. And here is the man himself suited up for action in the Weekend Warriors classification. And as we pan the starting line, you will see a few familiar faces and you had better believe it…the Weekend Warriors are dead serious. And so they’re off. This race leaves from Maheia’s United for the 44-mile ride to mile 21 on the Phillip Goldson Highway and will finish where it started at Maheia’s United. At the turn around point, it’s George Abraham leading the peloton which remains a cohesive bunch. On the way back at the Hattieville roundabout, some 10 riders have broken out of the pack with an 18-second lead over the chase. The amalgamation splinters around mile 10 when Kent Gabourel, Warren Coye, Kenroy Gladden, Ras Gentle and Isaiah Willacy make their move. Folks that solitary figure in front of this trio mounting a chase is Kenroy Gladden going to the tape. Gladden is joined by his teammate Kent Gabourel and the show of unity of the Kulture Tour Megabytes is memorable. Both were timed at 1 hour 52 minutes. Isaiah Willacy of Santino’s moves out of the pack to grab 3rd place. Ras Gentle of FT Williams is 4th and Warren Coye of Santino’s rounds out the top 5. We’ll extend the winners circle to 6 to accommodate the birthday boy, Collet Maheia. In the junior class, Joshua Fuller took top honors. Carlton Robinson is 2nd and Darnell Augustine is 3rd. The C Class Weekend Warriors was taken by Steve Gill of Smart; Edward of El Pecador took 2nd and his teammate Lisa Berger round out the top 3.

Finally folks, the UWI Open Campus Belize presents Barbara Cleland Day of Races on November 6th beginning at 1 p.m. on the Chetumal Boulevard circuit. There will be categories from primary school to the elites of the sport. It will be big – check it out.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

Football Winds Down on Sports Monday

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

Two bitter rivals came into week 16 looking to secure a berth in the advent of the 4-team playoffs of the PLB Opening Tournament at the MCC Grounds as the Belize Defense Force and FC Belize clashed in a major showdown. Some ten minutes in, Osmar Duran fires this bouncer….Rodrigo Vasquez fumbles the same to Treimayne Harris who gives the B.D.F. a 1-zip lead. Russel Casanova gets this half a chance to equalize but his turn fails to deliver the goods. It’s more FC pressure when Floyd Jones delivers this corner kick; the defensive header forces Glenford Chimilio into the save. Jordi Lopez bodies him to the ground for which he gets a yellow card. Folks the effort from Orlando Trapp puts the game out of reach as he beats Vasquez with the pace of this punch from inside the box. The Belize Defence Force assured a berth to the playoffs with the 2-zip victory. With 30 pts the B.D.F. is in 2nd place behind the amazing Belmopan Bandits who with a record of 12 wins and 3 draws for 39 pts would finish an undefeatable season. The Bandits conclude its schedule this weekend when they host the B.D.F.—win, lose or draw, they are number 1.

Turning to the cycling scene, the Chief’s 7 Seas Thanksgiving 45 plus category race proved to be a big thing yesterday with a race that rode for 50 miles from Leslie’s to the northern highway and back. we take you to the start where we find a whopping 766 riders competing in the elite, juniors and weekend warriors class. however, the big focus is on the 23 riders in the 45 and over category. In money time, Warren Coye of Santino is the big man forcing Digicell’s Robert Mariano into 2nd place while Isaiah Willacy of Santino’s, the only man to bridge the gap, settled for 3rd.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
