Sports Tuesday with Sportscaster James Adderley.

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday. Quiet as it has been kept, the Premier League of Belize has been undergoing growing pains as evidenced by the disjointed schedule of the 2015 season. We caught up with the General Secretary of the Football Federation of Belize, Mister Michael Blease.


Michael Blease, Secretary General, F.F.B.

“The PLB Tournament, we got information from the league that they are suspending their tournament for three weeks, for review and tournament amendment. But we have sent directives to the PLB that the tournament revelation is already enforced and we don’t see no reason for the League to have suspended their tournament. From our advantage point is the Verdes management requesting to use all the players that have played in the Champions League which was not approved for our domestic league. Our domestic league states five international players or foreign players and from those five, three can be fielded at any time. And the federation has that enforced. We cannot change that as a club would like during the tournament and so our directive back to the league is that the tournament will continue as of tomorrow with the back-match of week five, which B.D.F. and Belmopan Bandits was postponed due to the MCC Grounds not being playable.”


Folks, we hope this is not a band-aid on a festering wound. So the PLB season resumes tomorrow, Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. at the F.F.B. Stadium with the B.D.F. marching against the Belmopan Bandits. 2 matches are scheduled for Saturday. Belmopan Bandits will host Police United at the F.F.B. Stadium and Placencia Assassins will get a visit from Verdes FC inside the Michael Ashcroft Stadium. On Sunday, the tournament returns to the F.F.B. Stadium at 3 p.m. when Wagiya takes on the B.D.F.

Checking in on the Orange Walk Mundialito, Vibes Alive took on Centaur’s Minion and again its Katie Jones as this punch at goal is mishandled by the Centaur’s goalkeeper for the 1-zip lead. Carlos Canelo then sticks with this play to make it a 2-nil score. Katie Jones kicks her 2nd of the ballgame with this shot from atop the 18th. In the opening minutes of the 2nd half, Katie Hones strikes again for her 3rd with this good looking individual effort. Centaur Minion’s pull back off this long distance dial from Dennis Steves. On this play, David Bobadilla beats his man, deals to Nassil Cocom, who misplays. The ball reaches Katie Jones….she nets her 4th goal of the match to give Vibes Alive a 5-1 big win. In the night cap, between Yougn School and Blackwater Stars, Belarmino Esquivel gives Yougn School a 1-zip lead with this execution from the penalty spot. Menalio Novelo gets his turn at the penalty spot and the left foot finds the target for the 2-nil lead. A few minutes later, Belarmino Esquivel pounces on this loose ball for his 2nd goal of the match. Young School goes on to record the 3-zip big win.

Now here are the results from the weekend play in the CYDP tournament. Los Lagos edged King’s Park Strickers in a 5-4 struggle. Kraal Road ran over Ebony Lake 6 to 2; Lake I Rising Stars blanked Hattieville United 5-zip while Exodus United of La Democracia and Mahogany Heights FC settled for a scoreless draw. On the basketball side, BECOL play over the weekend saw U-21 games. Black Hawks burn Alpha Warriors 47 to 44 and BCV Stallions ran past Snipers 80 to 67. In U-23 play, Mic Roe Light and Rescue pummeled Santiago Juan Warriors 85 to 26. In over 35 action, undefeated Yabra continue to roll with a 59 to 28 rout of Invaders and Panthers scorched Light & Peace Offshore Solutions 55 to 54.

The 1st paddle and pedal competition was staged yesterday featuring an 18 mile canoe race from Henderson Bank to Manatee Lookout and then transitioned to bicycles for the return to the finish line at Henderson Bank. Only 3 teams showed up for the event and at the Boom Bridge, we find Guydis Canoes featuring Chris Guydis and Euken Arnold in the lead, with Adrian Williams and Sergio Lopez of Wateva Boys holding on to 2nd, while Felix Rhaburn and Wilberto Daniels kept the pace in 3rd place. Guydis Canoes held on to the lead at the completion of the paddle stage despite a botched transition. Making chase is Wateva Boys and they would execute the transition as ordained by the rules. It was Euken Arnold of Guydis Canoes heading home on bike in this lead. But the teammates would have to complete the 10 mile ride. And here is Chris Guydis making his move. Sergio Lopez and Adrian Williams looking to chase. At the Boom Cutoff, the 4 riders continue to maintain a steady pace led by Chris Guydis. We fast forward to the finish at Henderson Bank but Guydis takes a wrong turn and has to wait for his teammate. Euken Arnold joins his partner at the finish, but the team is penalized for Chris Guydis’ errant turn and relegated to 2nd place. Felix Rhaburn of Ride or Die makes up lost time on the bike but has to wait for Wilberto Daniels. This allows Adrian Williams and Sergio Lopez to roll in together for 2nd place, which is translated into 1st place. Wateva Boys win; Ride or Die settled for 3rd.


Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
