What’s Happening in Local Sports?

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

Pressing engagements made Monday’s appearance impossible and we extend our heartfelt apologies to all our supporters and fans. Now, to the business at hand. The CSK Invitational Anniversary Karate Championships took center stage inside the BES Auditorium featuring 2 Belizean teams from the Cayo Dsitrict, the Kazoki, Karate Dojo, a team from Guatemala and one from El Salvador to make it an important international event as the Cayo Shotokan Karate Club celebrated its 24th anniversary. Of the 60 athletes, Siyah Casey of the CSKL Belmopan with the red belt was the first to catch our eye in the finals of the 12/13 years female category against a game teammate, Drewyan Harrison to win gold. Guatemalan Hansel Samayoa in the blue corner beat his fellow compatriot, Nelson Can in the 14 to 15 male finals.

Caesar Dyck of San Ignacio got the judges nod in a tightly contested faceoff in the finals against Belmopan’s Basil Brown. Rafael Quinterio of Kazoki Shotokan Karate Dojo with the blue belt got the win over teammate Christian Harrison in the 12 to 18 class at 67 kilograms. Rene Flores of El Salvador edged out Deveroux Carillo of Belmopan in the 13 to 18 male class at 67 kilograms. Nevertheless, it was the Cayo Shotokan Karate Club of Belmopan to emerge with the most medals grabbing 11 gold, 12 silver and 16 bronze for a grand total of 39. CSKC of San Ignacio was 2nd with 6 goals 4 silvers and 2 bronze which adds up to 12. Guatemala picked up 3 gold 3 silver and a bronze for 7; El Salvador was next with 2 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze for 7 and Kazoki Shotokan karate Dojo picked 1 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze.

Turning to the football scene, Saturday match up in the Cayo 1st Division Season matched up Westrac of Spanish Lookout and IRKA of Benque Viejo hosted at San Ignacio. Elvin Lario of Westrac comes up with this loose ball only to fire this right foot that strays wide of goal. It’s more Spanish Lookout when Elmer Herrera gets this good look at goal but is foiled by goalkeeper Henry Garcia. Nevertheless the 1st goal comes off this IRKA spot kick that rebounds off the keeper to Salim Alfaro for the 1-zip lead. Westrac immediately looks for the equalizer but this left foot offering bounces off the crossbar. Some 2 minutes later, Fredy Herrera launches this right foot in traffic that ties the ballgame at 1 apiece. So we’ve got a new ballgame.

A few minutes later, Christian Mena takes down Elvin Larios inside the box. He is promptly chased off the field and the referee rules penalty. Elmer Herrera steps up and he gives Westrac the 2-1 lead. So we go to 2nd half and immediately into the restart IRKA goes offensive with this center that allows Elvin Larios to heed at goal, it’s swatted out by the keeper and eventually reaches Elvin larios who ties the ballgame at 2 apiece. Folks this is a big time save by the Westrac keeper when Elmer Herrera looks for his 2nd goal of the match with this power strike. Nevertheless, here comes the game winner and it’s this set piece launched by Fredy Herrera and it beats Henry Garcia and yes, Fredy you deserve a free shine. Westrac goes on to post the 3-2 big Win over IRKA of Benque Viejo.

Finally, in cycling news, here’s the start to Sunday’s race from Leslie’s Imports that heads to the Boom Village Junction and would swing back to finish 40 miles later. And it’s Mark Gentle of FT Williams standing in the winner’s circle with top honors in the A Class. James Frampton of Santino’s takes the 2nd place win and he received the medal for Wilbert Jones of Benny’s who finished 3rd. Barney Brown of Scotia Bank places 4th and Jack Sutherland of Digicell 4G rounds out the top 5. In the B Class, it’s Chris Coye of Stationery House/Medina’’s with the big win. Dean Boyce of FT Williams is 2nd and Ryan Willoughby of Stationery House/Medina’s rounds out the top 3. In the C Class, it was Manuel Esquiliano of Truckers grabbing top honors. Denys Barrow pulled up 2nd and that’s nig while Valentino Sosa of Truckers rounds out the top 3.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.

Sports Monday with James Adderley

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

The 24th Women’s National Softball Championship reigned supreme insdie Roger’s Stadium yesterday. 7 teams had started the campaign but in money time, it was the Belize Bank Bull Dogs and Roaring Creek Grace Kennedy battling for the 2014 crown. We go to the top of the 2nd inning with Ashley Lucas facing Myralee Ho while Shadalee Ho looks to score from 3rd. Myralee hits to 1st base but is thrown out but Shadalee nevertheless scores the 1st run of the ballgame to give Grace Kennedy the 1-zip lead. In Grace Kennedy’s turn at bat, Marsha Will smashes Leandra Guy to left field with Nicole Arnold at 3rd base; the ball is caught but we have a 1-1 game at the completion. When Ashley Lucas stikes out, Sharine Reyes in the top of the 3rd, she retires to the side without a runner reaching 1st base. In the bottom of the 3rd wit hthe bases loaded, Ashley Lucas pinches this ball to the Grace Kennedy shortstop who mishandles the ball and Marsha Will makes it a 2-1 Bulldogs lead with the only run of the inning. Meanwhile, Ashley Lucas breezes through the 5th inning; Myralee Ho easy out. Shadalee Ho suffers the same fate against the right hander and this blast from Samatha Orellano is snared by a diving Lisa Jones for the 3rd out to preserve the 3-1 lead.

In the bottom of the 6th, Belize Bank Bulldogs break the game wide open. Lisa Jones double brings Sharette Vernon home all the way from 2nd. Ashley Lucas benefits from this errant throw to 1st base as Lisa Jones makes it a 5-1 Bulldog lead. Up steps the left hander, Nicole Arnold, whose hit to the outfield brings home Ashley Lucas. Pinch runner Miss Hilton replaces Nicole Arnold at 2nd. Miss Lucas then punches this ball to right field; the throw to 1st is errand and Hilton comes in to make it a 7-1 score. In the top of the 7th, Grace Kennedy would muster 2 runs, but the Belize Bank Bulldogs go on to post the 7-3 victory to claim 2014 Women’s National Softball Championship and we say congratulations. Belize Bank pitcher, Ashley Lucas, emerged with MVP honors and tie for most wins with Leandra Guy of Roaring Creek who got the most strikeouts. Lisa Jones took home the Best Batter Average of .638 and Shadalee Ho had the most runs batted-in with 20.

Turning to the football scene, we head to the Norman Broaster Stadium for Saturday’s shootout between Adventures FC and Quintas in the Cayo 1st Division Competition. Some half an hour in, Joel Guzman deals to Nigel Carbajal who finds the far corner against goalkeeper, George Cocom and Adventures FC goes up 1-zip. 10 minutes later, Gareth Bermudez dances his way past the Adventures keeper who takes him down inside the box and the referee rightly rules penalty, plus the keeper is ejected. Cyril Simmons steps and makes it look easy as he ties the ballgame at 1 apiece. So we go to the 2nd half and Quintas look to take the lead as Byron Gonzalez looks to center across the goal when Adventures keeper punches it out to Gareth Bermudez whose header should have been better. At the other end, Joel Guzman finds Dennis Pinelo who powers this right foot over the crossbar. On this press, Quintas look for the Win when Gilbert Carillo unleashes this potent right foot that only goes to prove that sometimes the horizontal bar is a goalkeeper’s best friend as the game concludes in a 1-1 draw.

In international football news, the format for the 2018 World Cup Qualifier should be set in March and June 2015. The UNCAF draw will be staged at Miami on February 5th and our national team should begin preparing today.

In cycling news, yesterday’s weekend warriors race travelled for 50 miles from Leslie’s Imports to the Northern Highway and turned at the Boom Road junction as it heads to Hattieville. And here’s that turn featuring a three-man lead enjoying only about a 5 seconds advantage. At the Hattieville junction, the 3-man lead of Shelton Graham, Daniel Cano and Kent Gabourel remain on the pace with the chase bunch still in the hunt. We fast forward to the finish line and it is Kent “Bob” Gabourel of Benny’s Megabytes grabbing the Win uncontested in 02:16:50. Shelton Graham rolls in on a solo flight for 2nd. Daniel Cano of Digicell 4G is 3rd and then Warren Coye of Santino’s and Glen Mehia of FT Williams round out the top 5 in that order respectively.

In the B Class, 40 miler, Salvador Alvarado of FT Williams emerged with top honors; Santino Castillo pulled up 2nd and Mike Phillios of Santino’s round out the top 3. In the C Class, the win went to Ingmar Perera of Stationery House/Medina’s; Camile Solis finished 2nd and Glen Sheppard of Big Blade, 3rd.

Weekend Sporting Events with James Adderley

Good evening I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday. The Cayo first division football competition is heating up so we took on Saturday’s big time matchup inside the Norman Broaster Stadium as Westrac took on Hillview. It’s easy in the ballgame when Hillview goes to the set piece and this header by Noel Hyde certainly needs a secondary touch by Hugo Wilson to open the scoreboard. At the other end of the Norman Broaster, Omar Villalta’s left foot is menacing but fails to dip in time as it screams over the crossbar. Noel Hyde then gets a shot at redemption only to squander a golden opportunity with a high riser. Simon Bateman beats 2 in heavy traffic to launch an uncontested left foot that can accurately be described as disappointing and at half neither team has done enough to deserve a goal. So we got second half and this corner kick launched by Douglas Menjivar is mishandled by the goalkeeper, unfortunately the scoring opportunity finds the goal for Hillview. Hillview nevertheless remains the protagonist and this right foot slice by number twelve almost gets the job done. And yes Noel Hyde should have gotten a yellow card for this foul on the keeper. It’s getting late when Wetrac’s Elvin Larios launches this left foot sinker that forces Albert Welcome to come up with a necessary save. In the end this ballgame screeches to a scoreless stalemate as both teams share a point each from this ballgame.

Turning to women’s President Cup 2014 Sundays match-up between Smart Millennium of Belize City and DFC Gentle Touch played at the Norman Broaster Stadium descended into an ugly incident that led to its untimely demise. However, first things first. Some twenty minutes into the affair Shanell Gentle spits Alicia Avila off her line and powers this beauty over the head for the 1 0- zip lead. Five minutes later Elthene Gentle powers this left foot past goalkeeper Avila for the 2 – zip score. On this press Debbe Halliday hooks up with Kimberly Perez who makes it a 3 – nil lead for Gentle Touch. Folks it all Gentle Touch and if you don’t believe Shanelle Gentle has power – well her first attempt at the shot takes down Shaneika Franklin and her second launch make it a 4 – nil ballgame. So she celebrates. In the second half action Cynthia Salazar fires, the ball reached Abbi Halliday and it’s a 5 – zip Gentle Touch lead. The Gentle Touch rampage continues when Julie Ponce raises this ball top Cynthia Salazar whop scores for the 6 – zip lead. We are into the wining moments of this ballgame when quite unexpectedly violence breaks out. It starts on the left side between these two players and then it turned into a free for all despite the intervention of the referee and the presence of the police. The game was called with two minutes remaining, 4 r3ed cards were issued and subsequent report of their unfortunate incident in the Women President’s Cup 2014.

In Cycling news Jim Scott of Santino’s took the Saturdays Weekend Warrior 40 mile race that ran from TIDE Compound to Big Falls Maya Ruin in 1 hour 52 minutes and 10 seconds. Clarence Tesecum of FT Williams finished 2nd and Santino Castillo 3rd. In the B Class, which rode from TIDE Compound to Mafredi Village for thirty-two miles Santino Castillo took top honors in 1 hour 46 minutes and 24 seconds, his teammate Shelton Graham finished 2nd and Jim Scott made it a Santino’s sweep with 3rd place. In the twenty-six mile C Class Lawrence Craig if Truckers Posse won that race in 1 hour 25 minutes and 57 seconds, Glen Sheppard of Big Blade took 2nd and Dennis McKoy of Truckers Posse finishes 3rd.

Premier League of Belize kick-off on Sports Monday

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

The 2014 PLB Belikin Cup kicked off over the weekend, but was only able to stage 3 of the 4 scheduled matches due to inclement weather. We caught up with the monster showdown between the Belize Defense Force and FC Belize inside the People’s Stadium yesterday and it turned out to be a monster show. It’s FC Belize looking to open the scoreboard off this set piece launched by Augustino Mendez that forces the B.D.F. to scramble on defense. FC Belize continues to push forward and Oliver Hendricks should have done better with this open look at goal. The B.D.F. responds with this acrobatic launch from Harrison Rasher, but it failed to hit the target.

Again, FC Belize attacks off the corner kick and again it’s a good one from Augustino Mendez and again FC can’t come up with the breakthrough. Now folks, you make the call…the B.D.F.’s Jessie Smith has possession, here comes Floyd Jones with the challenge inside the box. Jones protest the referee’s penalty call much too vehemently and escapes with a yellow card. Vallan Symms beats goalkeeper, German Grajales to the near corner as the B.D.F. takes a 1-zip lead at the 30th minute. The B.D.F. looks for more when Shane Flores attacks off the left side, but Grajales comes up with a necessary touch. Andrew Allen then fires this left foot at goal, the tip by Grajales could have given Osmar Duran his goal, but he does not come up with the connection. Just before intermission, Andrew Allen deals to Shane Flores whose right foot punch beats Grajales for the 2-zip B.D.F. lead at the half. 5 minutes after, the action resumes. Oliver Hendricks provides nicely for Christopher Hendricks who manages to hit the near upright. At the 65th minute, Ricky Richlets comes up with this illegal challenge inside the box and the referee rules penalty. Oliver Hendricks gets the call and Fermin Gamboa is beaten as FC pulls on e back for the 2-1 score. The B.D.F. would hold on to the 2-1 big win.

In other action around the league, Verdes FC doubled San Ignacio 4 to 2, Wagiya picked up a road win by blanking Paradise Freedom Fighters 2-zip while Saturday’s match between Belmopan Bandits and Police United was rained out. this match is now rescheduled for Wednesday, October 22nd inside the Isidoro Beaton Stadium. Looking ahead to Week II, Saturday, 7:30 p.m., Placencia Assassin plays host to Police United at the Michael Ashcroft; 3:30 on Saturday, FC Belize faces Verdes at Louisiana Field. On Sunday, Wagiya will get a visit from Belmopan Bandits and Paradise Freedom Fighters will host the B.D.F. Both matches kick off at 3:30 p.m.

Turning to the softball scene, we caught up with the clash between Caribbean Queen of Carmelita and Orange Walk Jada’s inside the People’s Stadium on Satuday. We’re in the top of the 2nd when Kira Palacio comes up with runners at 2nd and 3rd. She pops up on the infield, but the attempt to out the runner at 2nd base allows the 1st run as Jada’s take a 1-zip lead. In the 3rd, OWJada’s come up big. Anna Gillette makes it a triple with this swing against #47…don’t blame us. The Jada’s pitcher’s name was not on the list. Linda Conorquie brings her home and reaches 1st base on the decision to try for the out at home plate.

Folks Conorquie then comes up with this in the park homerun for 2 more runs as Caribbean Queens take a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the 3rd. in the top of the 4th, Kira Palacio smashes this double to centerfield bringing home Claudette Lawrence and Kimberly Williams to tie the score at 4 apiece. In the bottom of the 5th, Yvette Flowers comes up with 2 on and benefits on the error at shortstop to bring the runner home from 2nd. Janice Conorquie comes up in the 6th with this hit that brings Linda Conorquie home. Janel Conorquie unleashes this monster hit to bring home Janice Conorquie and Elizabeth Ico. Unfortunately, Janel would hurt herself on the way to third and would not continue. Nevertheless, Carmelita Caribbean Queen goes on to post the 9-6 win over Orange Walk Jada’s to take game 1 in this best of 3 Championship Series. In the CSSSA Volleyball, Friday’s results saw Wesley College beat Sadie Vernon in 2 straight 25-5, 25-10; Belize High School defeated ACC 25-11, 25-3…that’s in female play. On the male side, Belize High School got the win over Wesley College 25-18, 25-20.

Finally in cycling news, here is Wilbert Jones winning the Weekend Warriors 40 mile A-Class race staged yesterday…pulling out of the crowd to win in 1 hours 58 minutes 24 seconds. Barney Brown of Scotia Bank outsprints the pack to take 2nd place with Jack Sutherland. Warren Coye and James Frampton rounding out the top 5 in that order. Jim Scott of Santino’s won the B-Class ride and we say good show Jim. Ryan Willoughby of Stationery House/Medina’s edged out Santino Castillo for 2nd place; Salvador Alvarado took 4th and Coye 5th. Ingmar Perera took the C-Classwith Sheffield Eck 2nd—both of Stationery House/Medina’s—and Lawrence Craig of Truckers took 3rd place.

Softball and Football Stats on Sports Monday

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

We start off with Saturday’s big clash in the Cayo 1st Division Football Competition as Bullet Tree battled Westrac inside the Norman Broaster Stadium. Folks, we’re only some 5 minutes into the action when Luis Arevalo fires this right foot shot just inside the box and goalkeeper, Robin Rodriguez, botches what should have been an easy save as Westrac take the 1-zip lead. 4 minutes later, Westrac defender, Carlos Rosales, hands this call; it might have been inadvertent bt that decision belong to the referee and he ruled penalty for Bullet Tree. Elvis Pinelo gets the call and he doesn’t disappoint beating Ayel de la Rosa rather easilt to knot the score at 1 apiece.

Westrac then looks to retake the lead on this outside bomb from Mario Herrera but Robin Rodriguez handles the launch. At the other end, Elvis Pinelo does everything right until he pulls the trigger to unleash a shot that had no legs.

It’s Westrac again on the move off this set piece that forces the goalkeeper into a tough save and at the half we have a 1-1 tie. Meanwhile folks, a minute into the resumption of play, Luis Arevalo fires this grounder at goal; Rodriguez intervenes but the rebound reaches Fredy Herrera and Westrac takes the 2-1 lead. Herrera wants more so he fires this potent right foot that rises over the crossbar. Nevertheless, it’s Fredy Herrera who puts the game out of reach with this screamer that crashes into the net as Westrac gets the 3-1 Big Win.

In the meantime, we made a push into the People’s Stadium at OW on Saturday for the advertized match between FC Belize and Verdes FC only to find the schedule was rained out. this match now gets underway on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at at the People’s Stadium.

Chi gets out of the inning when he forces Willard Jones to pop up to centerfield and #8 Robert Crawford makes the catch. In the top of the 5th, Ray Chable comes up against Damian Chan and he flies to the outfield and its deep enough to allow John Majarrez to score from 3rd and tie the ballgame at 1 apiece. We’re in the top of the 7th. Kos Majarrez steps up against Milton Flores who replaces Chan on the mound and he unleashes a pass ball that triggers 2 throwing errors. Willard Jones scores all the way from 1st to give Jada’s Male a 2-1 lead. Later in the inning, Flores is again victimized by a pass ball and player # 3 scores from 3rd to give Jada’s the 3-1 lead.

In the bottom of the inning, this batter beats out the bunt and Carlton Flores scores from 2nd base to make it a 3-2 score. Mad Ball is down to their last out when Shaquille Moody grounds this ball to 2nd base whose throw gets Moody and Jada’s Male hang on to the 3-2 score to claim the Orange Walk Male Softball Title.

Boxing, Basketball and Cycling in Sports Monday

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

Let’s jump in quickly to the Belize City High School Basketball Torunament so we head to Bird’s Isle where on Saturday night Nazarene High took on Maud Williams High School. Ajahn Williams comes down court and dials the bank fro a big time 3-point launch that keeps Nazarene High with a 7-point lead. At the other end, Selvin McDonald goes all the way through traffic to hit 2 of his 121 pts for Maud Williams. Nevertheless, Chervin Tench comes right back to answer with this jumper just outside the paint but at the end half, his team still trails Nazarene High 18 to 23.

In the 3rd quarter, Tench comes up with this steal to find Kenard White who goes glass for 2 of his 9 game pts. Now meet Kenroy McKoy—he has game as he demonstrates as he slices his way through the Nazarene defense for 2 and would lead all players with a game high 15 pts. Here’s another look at McKoy who displays his jump hook as Maud Williams continue to surge. And then this nice pass from Kobe Dyer finds Jamal Perry who makes it a 33-36 score going into the 4th quarter. With 3 minutes to go Amin Ramos gives Maud Williams its first lead of the ballgame and would finish with 8 points. However, Kenard White comes right back with the left hand to regain the lead for Nazarene. Keenan Castillo gets this look shot fall but Nazarene High School nevertheless hangs on to the 45-43 big Win and we say congratulations.

Football, Volleyball, Billiards and Cycling in Sporting Activities

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

The crucial matchup between Police United and the Belize Defence Force took center force inside the People Stadium yesterday as the intense rivalry continues unabated. The B.D.F. immediately look to get things going off this set piece triggered by Vallan Symms who picks out Leon Cadle but the header is handled by goalkeeper Keith Allen. The B.D.F. remains in control of the action as Ismar Duran and Carlton Thomas play to 2 man game that releases Thomas for this left foot floater that rises over the woodwork. The Police finally look dangerous when Amin August Jr. works his way through traffic to fire this left that forces Kevin Gamboa to come up with a scrambling save which rebounds to Trevor Leman who fails on the follow up. It’s more police action when Kafu Roches centers into the lot but Franz Vernon botches the header and at the half we have a scoreless ballgame. We’re into 2nd half play when Harrison Tasher sets table for Carlton Thomas who should’ve done better with this look. Andrew Allen then fixes bomb at goal only to see it inch over the crossbar. Leon Cadle gets his turn to open the scoreboard, so he looks for the fix corner and misses the target. It’s Vallan Symms looking to give the lead to the B.D.F. off the set piece but again fails to get the job done as the ballgame conclude into a scoreless draw. Truth is people neither team did enough to claim this ballgame.

In other action around the league Belmopan Bandits bombed San Ignacio United in a 7 – zip blast and Placencia Tex Mar Assassins scorched FC Belize 1 – zip while Verdes pounded Paradise Freedom Fighters 2 – nil. Thus the standings looks like this B.D.F. leads with 10 points, Verdes FC also has 10, Placencia 7, Police United 6, Bandits 4, Waguya 4, FC Belize 3 while both Paradise Freedom Fighters and San Ignacio are winless and without a point after both team lost all 4 matches apiece.

Turning to the Billiards scene Erwin Woodeye walked through Ernest Rowland, Elder Paredes and Marvin Yam in the semi-finals of the King of the Hills 8 Ball Tournament to take the overall title. 32 players started in the tournament that tested 32 players.

Turning to the cycling scene, Dangriga takes center stage with the presentation of the annual TV Ramos Cycling Classic. The Elite and weekend warriors A & B Class cover 56 miles while the WW C Class, the Masters and the Amateurs rides will do 40 miles.

Turning to the volleyball scene, the National Secondary Schools Sporting Association and Bowen Volleyball Championship was staged at the Orange Walk Sports Complex on the 7th and 8th November featuring 4 female and 4 male champions from each district. The female championship match found 8 time champion St. Catherine’s Academy looking for a 9 straight title focusing on Belmopan Comprehensive High. The defending champions routed Belmopan in the 1st set when Karina Bernard serves up this ball for a rally that concludes when Juel Lewis smashes it across and Belmopan cannot come up with the dig as SCA wins the 1st set 25 – 8. Belmopan had a better outing in the 2nd set – Aliyaah Allen places this serve perfectly to pick up the point and then off her serve Kiwaina Sebastian tries her smash but ___ Clare takes care of that and Kayleen Flowers makes them pay. However the 8 time champ dug in down the stretch and when Kiara could not return this ball SCA takes the 2nd 25 – 20. St. Catherine’s returned to for, in the 3rd set. Juel Lewis handles this serve to find Karen Quan who set up Kiwana Sebastian and she finishes off the action for the 25 -0 8 score. SCA takes the title in 3 straight for their 9th consecutive championship and we say congratulations to Lupita Quan and company. We also say good show to female MVP Mya Musa of SCA. On the male side the Toledo Community College beat San Pedro High School 26 – 24, 25-15, 24-26 and 28 – 26 in 4 sets to claim this year’s National Male title and we say good job to Julio Requena of TCC who emerged with the MVP honor.

Weekend Sports With James Adderley

Good evening I’m, James Adderley and this is Sports Monday. The action remains fast and furious inside the PLB completion and we’ve got proof. So let’s head to the Peoples Stadium for Saturday night standoff between Placencia Texmar Assassins against the mighty BDF. In the early going it’s Dellon Torres with the left foot swing to give Texmar the opening goal only to see the ball travel wide of goal. Its Dellon Torres again with the chance to move the scoreboard only this time he does not get enough of the ball to beat B.D.F.’s Tevin Gamboa and at the half we’ve got a scoreless ballgame. In the 2nd half Dellon Torres decides to turn provider so he picks out Louis Torres on the left side and the floater over Gamboa gives Placencia Texmar Assassins the 1 – zip lead at the 71st minute. The B.D.F. looks to respond when Carlton Thomas deals to Elroy Rawley but the credit goes to goalkeeper Jesus Urbina for his timely intervention. In this oppress Thomas again links up with Rawley and again Urbina’s defensive effort pays off. This might have been the B.D.F.’S best opportunity to equalize but they come up empty. Placencia Texmar Assassins come away with the merited 1 – zip victory to pick up all 3 points. In other action around the league on Saturday night Belmopan Bandits scorched Verdes FC in a 3- 2 blast, while on Sunday Paradise Freedom Fighters got its 1st season win with a 2 – 1 victory over FC Belize while Wagiya doubled San Ignacio in a 4 – 2 finish. Placencia Texmar now leads the league with 10 points from 3 wins and a draw, B.D.F. also shows 10 points but from 3 wins, 1 loss and a draw, Verdes has 10 points from that same record, Belmopan Bandits and Wagiya to show 7 points, Police 6, FC Belize 3 points, Paradise Freedom Fighters also show 3 points and san Ignacio remains in the cellar with no point. Looking to week 6 on Saturday 22nd Police faces Paradise Freedom Fighters inside the Isidoro Beaton, while 3 matches are set for Sunday at 3:30 PM Placencia Texmar will host Belmopan Bandits, san Ignacio United will be at home against FC Belize and Wagiya FC will make a stand inside the Carl Ramos against the Belize Defense Force.

Turning to the Women President Cup, the 2 game championship series for the 2014 title kicked off at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium. Saturday as Triple B’s took DFC Gentle Touch. Well some 5 minutes when Triple B’s Mexican striker Yamili Herrera hammers this set piece through a poorly constructed defensive wall to give her team the 1 – zip lead. Some 10 minutes later Shannel Gebtle launches this corner kick into the box Zandra Wittakers defensive header finds Cynthia Salazar who nods it in for the 1 – 1 tie. This pumps up the Esperanza Team – Kimberly Perez makes this force into the danger zone and her shot under pressure is denied by the goalkeeper’s best friend – the horizontal bar. At the other end Gentle Touch dodges a bullet when Gizel Baiza fires this low rise missile thanks to goalkeeper Myreie Drysdale. Yamili Herrera gets another chance to give Triple B on this set piece launch which travels too close to Miss Drysdale. 1- 1 score would hold up through regulation play, so game 2 moves to the Norman Broaster Stadium this weekend. Two enter one leave with the 2014 Women’s President Cup title.

Turning to the National Primary School Volleyball Championship staged at Birds Isle and Quan’s Gym in Belize City. Holy Angels of Stann Creek got past Belize Elementary 25 – 21, 25- 18 to claim the female title as Kiara Quinomez walked away female MVP Honor. In the male side Church of Christ Primary School of Corozal rolled over Louisiana Government School of Orange walk 25 – 19, 25 – 20 giving Keith Nugent the male MVP award we say good show. Now here is Friday’s result from play in the Central Division of the Secondary School Basketball tournament. Ladyville Technical High defaulted to Pallotti High School in female play. While on the male side Wesley College beat Nazarene High 60 to 50 and EP Yorke got over Ladyville Technical High 75 to 67.

Sporting highlights with James Adderley

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

Stop the press. In week 6 of the PLB Football season, San Ignacio United finally got its 1st win of the semi-pro competition using the home field advantage inside the Norman Broaster Stadium yesterday to pounce on a struggling FC Belize for the 1-zip big W.  Nevertheless, it’s FC Belize with the early momentum as Brandon Jones jumps on this loose ball inside the box to fire a right foot that goalkeeper Elmer Calderon heroically punches out while the 2nd attempt by Julian Maldonado fails to hit the target. FC continues in the ascending as James Bermudez does the dance around Rafael August Jr., and again a flying Maldonado comes up with a necessary intervention.

FC keeper, German Grajalez finally gets tested around the 37th minute with this at piece launch from Julian Maldonado. In early 2nd half action, Maldonado tries the acrobatic shot with the left foot that falls short of expectation. Devan Zuniga looks for the far corner to open the scoreboard for FC Belize but Calderon hangs tough. Now watch this long distance bouncer from Edmond Martinez that inches outside the far upright and German Grajalez castigates his defense for its apparent failure. Folks, if Grajalez is having a bad day then things just gets worse when Torben Bhrens sends this ball at goal which should have been a routine save; Grajalez fumbles and Cyril Simmons makes him pay to give San Ignacio United the 1-zip lead with some 8 minutes to the long whistle. It’s the goal that gives San Ignacio its first win and its first points so break out the champagne and we say congratulations you’ve shut down the doubters.

In other action around the league, Police mauled Paradise Freedom Fighters in a 5-3 finish; Belmopan Bandits burned Placencia Texmar Assassins 1-zip, while on Sunday Wagiya FC used the home field advantage to halt the B.D.F. in a 2 – 2 stalemate. Nevertheless, the B.D.F. marches to the top of the standings with an eleven point showing; Belmopan Bandits, Verdes FC and Placencia Texmar all record 10 pts each in that respective order due to goal difference; Police United remains in the hut with 9 pts; Wagiya is still in the race with 8 pts, while the cellar finds FC Belize, Paradise Freedom Fighters and San Ignacio all with 3 pts apiece in that order. Looking to week 7, the B.D.F. and Belmopan Bandits battle for the lead on Saturday, 7:30 p.m. at the People’s Stadium while Police and Wagiya face each other at the Isidro Beaton in a crucial shutdown and on Sunday, Paradise Freedom Fighters face San Ignacio determine who escapes the cellar and it’s a biggie at the Norman Placencia Assassins when Verdes FC takes aim at Placencia Assassins as both teams battle for a share of the lead.

Turning to the basketball scene, the Anglican Cathedral College and St. John’s College put on an exciting display in the Central Division Secondary School Basketball Tournament Friday night at Big Bird’s Isle. We pick up the action when Sydney Bucket Bradley spots Dudley Erskine on the move beats everybody down court for an uncontested layup for 2 of his game high 26 pts. At the other end, D’Andre Arana finds Antwon Rivero who gets the bounce for 3 pts—he would hit a team high 25 pts including 5-three pointers. SJC jumps to a 4 pt lead when Jahrell Dawson sinks this turnaround jumper for 2 of his 9 game points. Kelvin Hendy comes up with loose ball and lays it in for 2 of his 13 pts to tie the ballgame at 32 points apiece at the half.

We’re late in the 2nd quarter play when Holdane Suazo picks off this pass to streak down court for 2 of his 14 pts as captain for ACC. Meanwhile, Dudley Erskine displays his patented move to appear uncontested down court and Sydney Bradley again finds him as Captain Erskine of SJC lands the freebie and would score 6 unanswered pts to tie the game at 40 pts apiece. At the half, we have a tied ballgame at 2 apiece. Big Kelvin Hendy grabs this rebound and the put back is good to give ACC a 3 pt lead late in the 3rd. b8t this rough move by Dudley Erskine ties the ballgame at 63 apiece to end the 3rd. in the dying seconds of 4th quarter, SJC is down by 2 when Dudley Erskine maneuvers through traffic to knot the score at 63 pts apiece—so we go to overtime.

In overtime play, Keyvon Evans comes up with the put back and would finish with 15 pts. Antwon Rivero then sinks this nice baseline one hand floater as ACC begins to pull away. Big props to Kelvin Hendy with this huge rebound and a gargantuan put back for ACC. ACC goes on to post the 77 to 70 big win and we say kudos.

Changing gears, the determined Avengers Ladies Group presents Hattieville Day 1st Expo Style 2014; this Saturday, November 29th, highlighters by football marathon featuring U-14, U-20 and seniors in action. Coach Lalo at 669-4330 is the contact to get in this all day family affair.

Checking in on the B.N.E. National Junior Championships, Terry So won the 12 and under category with Desiree Amagual 2nd and Shahil Hotchandani 3rd. Latrell Solis took the U-15 class with Jaylen Nicholson 2nd and John Delcid 3rd. John Delcid returned to capture the U-18 category forcing Latrell Solis into 2nd and Luis Bardalez into 3rd.

Finally folks, Byron Pope of Benny’s Megabytes easily won the open elite 10 laps in the 1st Annual 19th November Criterium Race in downtown Belize City. He beat out 2 junior riders of the Smart Team—Patrick Williams and Darien Anderson, in that order. However, Darien Anderson was the big winner in the Junior 25 laps beating out his Smart teammate, Patrick Williams, while unattached Anthony Marin finished a distant 3rd. now give it up for Shelton Graham who celebrates his victory in the open A Class 25 laps with Orson Butler grabbing 2nd place and Mike Lewis of Smart finishes 3rd.

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
