Football News in Sports Monday

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

 

The pressure filled home and away series for the 2015 PLB Tournament title kicked off inside the Norman Broaster  Stadium Sunday as Verdes FC hosted Police United. The police get going early with this nice work of penetration by Byron Chavez whose left foot launch locks the finish to beat Yusef Guerra in the Verdes Goal. It’s more police when this strike by Devon Makin is deflected pass the keeper, the Verdes captain Rodney Pacheco clears.  The ball only reaches as far as Harrison Kafu Roaches who fires the left foot and goalkeeper Guerra owes Pacheco who saves him in consecutive fashion. Some 22 minutes in Verdes finally gets some offense when Gilroy Thurton fires this left foot from point blank range only to come up with an embarrassing miss. Gilroy Thurton looks for redemption and this time it’s a power low cruise missile from inside the penalty box only to be denied by a magnificent save from Jamie Brooks. Folks Brooks shows determination to make his former team rue the day they traded him because this potent strike from Yoras Silva is made to look like a routine save by the former Verdes keeper.

In the meantime we’re 7 minutes into the 2nd half when Danny Jimenez’s mean service into the danger zone finds his brother Orlando Jimenez and the left foot strike gives the law a 1 – zip lead. Orlando had certainly risen up his level in the playoffs scoring his 3rd goal in 2 critical outings. The police continues in the ascending when Danny Jimenez cranks up this monster blast off the set piece that crashes against the crossbar and would have beaten the flying Guerra. Hey Carlton Thomas when you take flight in the danger zone please open your parachute and we’re flying happy you hit the successful landing. Folks we don’t know what Devon Makin was thinking on this defensive effort against Ricardo Jimenez because there’s no doubt this one is an easy penalty call. Everyone wants to take the penalty so Captain Rodney Pacheco makes the decision for Deon McCauley. Folks Belize’s best striker blows the nig moment. Maybe he was distracted by the movement of Jamie brooks who comes with the biggest save of the ballgame. In the final moment of the ballgame Gilroy Thurton get this chance to tie the score, he misses the target. Police holds on to the 1 – zip big W.

Game 2 of the series comes up this Sunday at 3:30 PM at the FFB Stadium.  Police in the role of host needs just a draw to return to the pinnacle. Of course Verdes is not out yet. Why? Because it’s never over till it’s over.

Meanwhile Belize’s Woodrow West goalkeeper for El Progress Honduras, won the National Honduran title Saturday night at home after going to penalty kicks. El Progresso drew 3 – 3 in fame 1 and game 2 as you see went to a 1 – 1 tie. In the ensuing penalty kicks West conceded only 1 goal as his team rallied to a 4 – 1 score on penalty kicks and we say congratulations to Mr. Woodrow West and El Progresso.

 

Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
