Kulture Yabra beat Corozal F.C. 3-0

Story Picture
Good evening I’m James Adderley and you’re locked into another version of Sports Monday. The wait was simply intolerable for football fans across the nation, but semi-pro football finally presented its annual season yesterday. Matches at Dangriga and Belmopan were hastily cancelled due to inclement weather, which left only three outings on the weekend schedule.

Sports Monday caught up with the action at the M.C.C. Grounds where the defending champion Kulture Yabra played host to Corozal Football Club, just back in the Regent BFL season. And as they take the field, this procession is led by the three officials working game.

The first scoring opportunity comes off this defensive error by Corozal, but Norman Nunez can’t quite catch up with the pill. At the other end, Corozal looks for the lead with this ground pass off the left wing, but there is not enough on the shot to really bother Shane Moody.

On this press, Norman Tilliman Nunez feels he deserves a penalty kick after this takedown inside the area by Pablo Madrid. Maybe Tilliman and Pablo Madrid used to be team-mates or friends in the past, but this elbow by Nunez of Madrid’s forehead says that time is past. Madrid bleeds while Nunez gets a yellow card, which could easily have been a red.

Nevertheless, it’s still Yabra in command when Nunez deals to Lennox Mejia, who should have come up with the conversion here. So Yabra replaces him with Ervin “Bird” Flores and he creates excitement with his first touch, but there’s no goal to show.

The first goal of the ballgame comes four minutes from the half when Tilliman serves this beauty to David “Manu” McCauley and he gives Yabra a 1-zip lead to take to the locker room.

So we go to second half and immediately Yabra goes offensive as “Bird” Flores gets off this sliding shot, but the CFC keeper makes a brilliant save.

This centre from Serano is a beauty, but Yabra simply can’t take advantage of the situation. But back to the Nunez/Madrid vendetta, Madrid might have gotten away with one here–but apparently, all is fair in war and football.

At the other end, this corner kick provides Corozal with one of its few scoring opportunities, but they can’t come up with the conversion. Yabra now looks for the insurance goal off this centre, but the header misses the target.

Downfield, this header from the CFC frontline carries hopes of the equaliser, but it fails to get the job done. For Pablo Madrid, the unthinkable happens when on this defensive play he comes up with the dreaded auto goal for the two-zip Yabra lead.

Of course, this breaks Corozal’s resolve, so a minute later Deon Flowers fresh off the pine, comes up with goal number three as Yabra kicks off the new season with a 3-zip big W.

In other Regent match-ups, yesterday Juventus jolted newcomer Jacintoville of Toledo 2-zip at the People’s Stadium and Acros Verdes got pass Acros Bombers 4-2 in what could be termed an intramural affair.

Of course, the focus in Belizean sports remains on the Central American Games, which gets off in Guatemala on November twenty-third and extends to December tenth. Already the male and female football team has emerged, so has the softball team, cycling has already selected its male and female teams and we hear basketball is on the move.

But as we go inside the Central American Games Belizeans, we must remember that we must uphold our national dignity. That’s it, thanks to our cameraman for their great work over the weekend. Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
