Belize Continues Participation at Central American Games

Richard Troyer

There are no medal victories to report yet, but Belize is holding its own on day-two of the 2017 Central American Games. In basketball, Belize looks for another win as they are presently taking on El Salvador, while in football; the under-twenty-one is to face off with hosts Nicaragua at the National Stadium in Managua, kicking off tonight. In our update tonight, we hear from the beach volleyball team which narrowly lost to Honduras and a member of the national basketball team which beat Costa Rica on Monday.

 

Richard Troyer, Captain, Belize National Basketball Team

“I think we’ve just got to believe in each more. We played more relaxed and took care of the ball more. I think that’s the one big thing we did. And we just believe in the system that Coach Milton Palacio has been implementing and trust in the defense and trusted one another and came together and played as a cohesive unit. And it worked out as a win.”

“So what you do you have planned for tomorrow against [El] Salvador?”

“Hopefully we can just build on today and play even better. Just play together and play defensively sound and offense will come.”

“In the first set we started off a little slow, [inaudible] and then we did some errors, and that’s when they pushed us to our limit. We lost the first set twenty-one to fifteen and the second set twenty-one to sixteen.”

 

Reporter

“So what did you feel most difficult about the game?”

 

Gabriel Nunez

“Most difficult that we just don’t have as much experience as those other players have. This is our first time being in the tournament, but in the future we’ll fix our mistakes and do better.”

 

Reporter

“What can you tell us about your future games?”

 

Gabriel Nunez

“We have El Salvador and Panama. Against Panama we should definitely try to win because this is their first time here and we know we could beat them.”
