Highlight of Weekend Sporting Activities with James Adderley

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

The struggle for the lead in the PBL football season intensified in week 8 as 5 ball clubs went in positioned to grab a place in the top 4 of the standings.

Placencia Texmar Assassins rolled into the Norman Broaster yesterday with high expectation to come away with their share of the lead against the host team San Ignacio United who had notched only 1 season win in 7 tries going in. The Assassins look for 1st blood when Ashley Torres deals to Louis Torres who unleashes a wonderful left foot strike that beats the keeper but not the far upright. We’re 14 minutes in when Erik Guzman fires at goal, the bouncer is deflected to the big man, Torben Bhrens and left  foot guides it into the far corner and yes, San Ignacio takes a 1-zip lead would they hang on to the lead.

Norman Pipersburgh tries to find the appropriate response with this on the run left foot effort that finds Dudley Smith almost assisting the Placencia team with the   auto goal—with almost being the operative word. Ashley Torres then deals perfectly to Dellon Torres and in a one on one confrontation fails to get the right foot splice past Elmer Calderon who does enough to allow his defensives make the necessary clearance.  And guess what? At the half, San Ignacio United still 1-zip lead. In 2nd half, a desperate Texmar ratchets up the pressure.  Norman Pipersburgh fires to Louis Torres in front of the goal and he disappoints with a high riser. A few minutes later, Pipersburgh launches this header only to be fouled by a well-timed effort from goal keeper, Elmer Calderon. Next Assassin to attack the San Ignacio is head bandaged Dellon Torres who fires at the far corner and again Calderon comes up big.

Norman Pipersburgh reappears behind the set piece and bends it over the wall. It’s technically sound but backs power and Calderon remains unfazed. At the other end, this set piece launch targets Cyril Simmons and is hampered enough to deny him the attempt to double the San Ignacio lead. Against the run of play, Joel Guzman comes up with the steal and goes all the way up field to unleash this right foot that could have secured the 3 points, but its right at Jesus Urbina. Folks we’re into the last minute of extra time play, Zerrick Torres gets this floater to Gilbert Rivas who heads to Ashley Torres and he is forced to come back to Mister Rivas who breaks San Ignacio United’s heart for the 1-1 tie. Just goes to show it’s never over till it’s over.

We head over to Bird’s Isle to grab a look at the lead in the 2 game championship series for the Central Secondary Schools female title. On Friday night, we pick up the action with Tyra Morreira tying the ballgame in the 4th quarter at 11 pts a piece. Briana Jex answers with this undivided effort going glass for the go ahead bucket. On the next SCA possession, Indie Dixon misfires for 3 but Tricia Jefferies picks up the rebound for the uncontested put back. And SCA wins the national female Central Division title and we say congratulations. We also say kudos to Tricia Jefferies who emerged with MVP honors.

On the male side, SJC had its way with Sadie Vernon Tech in game one of the championship series Wednesday night in an 80 to 55 blowout. So we go to the opening quarter Friday night and it’s Darnel Galvez with the put back off the Clancy Lopez miss to give Sadie Vernon a 1 pt lead. Galvez would put up a double digit 13 pts. The leader scorer for Sadie Vernon and here he beats everybody down court for 2 of his game high 33 pts. Defensively he ain’t no slouch either as he times his moves perfectly to deny Dudley Erskine what should have been an easy deuce. In the meantime, this nice finish by Darnel Galvez gives Sadie Vernon a 24-16 lead at the end of the 1st quarter. In the 2nd quarter, Galvez gives Sadie Vernon a 13 pt lead with this penetration and left hand finish. But here comes St. John’s College Sydney Bradley streaks down court and gives left for 2 of his 16 game pts. Bradley comes right back and this time uses the right hand for 2 off the glass to earn 3 the hard way. Stephen Cabral then slices through heavy traffic to keep the SJC momentum going with a big bucket. And then Dudley Erskine with the nice move banks it for 2; Erskine would lad SJC with 21 pts. Stephen Cabral then hits 2 triple in a row both from the same side. This bucket by Dudley Erskine gives SJC 1st lead at 42-40 after the big comeback. At the half, SJC leads 46-40 outscoring Sadie Vernon 30 to 16 pts in the 2nd quarter. All pumped up Dudley Erskine gets real busy. Everybody on SJC gets into the action…Johnson Phillips off the glass for 2 off the steal by Sydney Bradley, Erskine benefits for an uncontested 2. Llewellyn Gentle grabs the rebound off this missed triple from Stephen Cabral beats his man and sinks the put back. at the end of 3, SJC is up by 24 pts. Folks, this is the moment the long whistle peaks to declare…St. John’s College the Male Central Division Champions in 2014 and that’s big with a big win in an 86-65 final score. Big congrats to Dudley Erskine who emerged with MVP honors.

Finally in cycling news, Dean Belisle had to turn on the after burners to outsprint Warren Coye of Santino’s and unattached Collet Maheia to win yesterday’s 50 mile weekend warriors race in a highly contested finish. Coye and Maheia finished 2nd and 3rd respectively with Big Mike Lewis 4th while Mike Phillips rounds out the top 5.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

Basketball and Football with James Adderley

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

The final schedule of the PLB Football Competition found Verdes FC locked in a bitter struggle with the Belize Defense Force inside the Norman Broaster Stadium yesterday; bidding to remain the leader going into the post season. Indeed it could have been a perfect start for the host team when Rodney Pacheco looks for the near post off this set piece on top the 18 only to see the ball curve outside the target. 2 minutes later, Verdes gets this good look at goal and this time Victor Moralez sends the keeper over the crossbar. The B.D.F. finally gets some offense going when Vallan Symms uses this spot kick to pick out Stephen Martinez who powers the header over the horizontal unit of the goal.

Jarret Davis then looks to increase his lead in the goal scoring column with this left foot attempt easily corralled by Tevin Gamboa. Meanwhile Marlon Molina could have, should have but failed to apply the power on this launch to beat the B.D.F. keeper. For the B.D.F. fans, hearts pounded when Vallan Symms punches this set piece that gets a deflection off the wall that could have opened the scoreboard. So we’re scoreless at intermission. Folks the B.D.F. fans scream foul when Victor Moralez applies necessary force to wrest this dangerous possession from Shane Flores, but universally a referee will rule this is a shoulder to shoulder clash.

Jarret Davis then looks to take his team on his shoulders and does everything right until he offers a splice too far from the intended target. At the other end, the fortuitous bounce finds Carlton Thomas and the vote is unanimous—he should have done better. Talk about doing better this beautiful offensive move by Gilroy Thomas is only sullied by power instead of accuracy. Certainly was an exciting ballgame but neither team deserved the Win so they settled for a point apiece.

This suited Police United who leapt to the top of the standings with a 6- clubbing of San Ignacio United while Placencia saved face on its way out of the playoffs with a 6-2 bashing of Wagiya FC. We’re not going to say anything about hapless FC Belize except that they assisted Belmopan Bandits into the playoffs by not showing up. Thus the standings that count looks like this: Police finishes with 18 pts, Verdes FC 17, bandits 16 and the B.D.F. 15. The playoffs which features a double round robin format finds Police facing the Belmopan bandits Saturday night at 7:30 at the Isidoro Beaton while Sunday inside the Norman Broaster.

We say congratulations to Harrison “Kafu” Roches who emerged goleador with 8 goals edging out Jarret Davis who stalled at 7.

Turning to the basketball scene. The National Secondary Schools Tournament took center stage at Bird’s Isle over the weekend. We’re in the finals with Muffles College giving St. Catherine Academy a run for its money when Julia Puerto, who scored 9pts, comes up with a crucial steal and finds Yazel Sutherland who deals to Zelita Catzim who strikes for 2 of her 7 pts. At the other end, Andreinae Samuels picks up the rebound off the miss by Indie Dixon to score 2 of her 6 pts for SCA. But Miss Dixon comes right back to seal the win for St. Catherine with this free throw. The 26-23 big win gives St. Catherine Academy the national Secondary Schools Female title and we say good show to the Central Division Champion. Of note, Brianna Jex of SCA was voted Most Valuable Player and we say kudos.

Meanwhile the Central Division Male Champion, St. John’s College looked to follow the SCA lead after arriving at the finals against San Pedro High School. SJC set the tone in the opening quarter behind the hot hand of Sydney Bradley who would put 11 points up in this one. Dudley Erskine comes up with the steal here and he strikes for 2 of his 11 game pts as SJC takes a 16-12 lead. In the 2nd, Zimmer Perez banks it off the glass for 2 of his 6 pts trying to get his team back in the ball but at the half SJC leads 33 to 18. However, in the 3rd, SJC really opened the gap—Raheem Flowers sinks the triple for SJC. Victor Diego sinks this base line jumper off the glass for San Pedro. Diego comeback to pick up the loose ball and strike for 2 more—would finish with a team high 9 pts. At the end of the 3rd, SJC has extended the lead to 19 points. San Pedro makes a run in the 4th ….Zimmer finds Alfic Black and he gets 2 pts. Aain Zimmer provides—this time to Edwin Caballero who would tally 5 pts. Hey guys, here’s a tip when you see the ladies leaving…it’s all over except for the noise. SJC goes on to post the 53-42 big Win and are National Champion 2014 and the Central Division Champion simply looked awesome. We congratulate Kyle Pitts of SJC who emerged with MVP honors.
