Football and Cycling Over the Weekend

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


Verdes FC begins its sojourn into the 2015 CONCACAF Champions Tournament tomorrow, Tuesday, with a home stand against the Mexican professional team, Gallos Blancos de Queretero inside the F.F.B. Stadium at 8 p.m. Verdes is grouped with Queretero and San Francisco in a 3-team race for a spot inside the 8 team quarter finals. Head coach, Marvin ottley was pretty upbeat about Tuesday’s match against the Mexican visitor. National Team player, Deon McCauley looks forward to a good performance by Verdes. But here’s what we know about Queretero. They defeated the Panama’s San Francisco at home in the series opener 2 to nothing and they utilized a 4-5-1 formation. Here’s a peak at that August 4th outing…Emmanuel Villa climbs the ladder to give Gallos Blancos the 1-nil lead at the 60th minute. And thenVictor Milke pounces on this loose ball inside the box for the 2-zip victory. Besides these 2, Verdes will have to mark midfielder, Danilinko, the left winger Camilo Sanvesse, #10 Sinha and William – both play in the middle. This Saturday, Belmopan Bandits will be at the F.F.B. Stadium facing Wagiya while at the Michael Ashcroft, Placencia will host FC Belize—both at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, the B.D.F. takes to the MCC against Verdes at 3:30 p.m.

In other football news, play in the PLB 2015/16 Season got off over the weekend. On Saturday, Verdes was held to a 1-1 stalemate by Placencia at the Norman Broaster and at the Michael Ashcroft, Wagiya opened by bombing the B.D.F. in a 5-1 blast. Meanwhile, the match between Police and the Belmopan Bandits has been pushed forward to Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. inside the F.F.B. Stadium. We also took in yesterday’s Cayo 1st Division clash between Universal hardware and Lower Dover FC. Some 20 minutes in, Jared Rudon sinks this ball behind Allen Molina in the Lower Dover goal to give Universal Hardware the 1-zip lead. Folks, we’re at the 50th minute when this set piece finds Alejandro Aguirre and his header doubles the Universal lead.

Collin Burgess tries to pull one back for Lower Dover off this set piece only to see the launch inch over the crossbar. Meanwhile, give Noel Hyde the assist when he heads this ball to Melvin Calderon who buries it into the net to get Lower Dover on to the scoreboard. Emerson Orellano restores the 2 goal lead at the 65th minute for Universal when he outruns the defense; there’s nothing Allen Molina can do. It’s a 3-1 score. Make it 4 to 1 when Orellano finds Gregorio Lima who makes the tap in look easy. Noel Hyde gets on to the scoreboard with this individual effort but it wasn’t enough as Universal Hardware FC takes the 4-2 big Win. In the other feature over the weekend, Heartz FC doused Flame FC in a 5-4 squeaker. Looking to Friday, Bullet Tree aims at Westrac while on Saturday, Quintas FC takes on Penarol and Astros will battle Olympus.

Checking the C-Ray Youth Summer Races: Jayden Tillett won the 3 to 5 years race beating out Khamani Morrison and Jadah Muschamp. Raymond Singh continues to shine in the 6 to 8 years class winning again. Damine Myles is 2nd wile Devin Major finishes 3rd. at the 9 to 12 category, Derrick Brown wins in uncontested fashion, while Kenyon Stanford rolls in for 2nd and Jahmai Scott pulls up in 3rd place. In the 13 to 15 years race, Gian Lino and Sherwin Requeña both posted the same time, but Lino gets the nod. Joshua Fuller settles for 3rd place. now here’s the start for the 12 laps featuring 16 to 18 year old riders and it’s quite an impressive field. It’s a 5-man sprint for the big W and Kaydine Pinelo is the clear winner and he leaves no doubt. Stephen Cabral is 2nd and Sherwin Requeña is 3rd. Dylan Belisle won the 3 man mountain bike/beach cruiser race. Erion Brown took 2nd and Christian Smith pulled up 3rd.


Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
