Sports Monday with James “Jah Over All” Adderley

James Adderley

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

The National Male Football Team of Belize kicks off its final series in this round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers on Friday November 11th inside the FFB Stadium against St. Vincent and the Grenadines. While Belize will not make it to the next round having lost 3 matches in a row, it is imperative for the development of the sport that they come up with a good performance. In fact, the fans are demanding a win. At the same time on Friday, Guatemala who have already qualified to move on will go up against Grenada. A 2nd lace finish in this group would positively further Belize’s am at World Class football.

We now head to the MCC grounds where the over 40 tournament is kicking up a storm here in the city. On yesterday’s ticker Plaza faced a strong challenge from Creative tiles. Some 14minutes in, Leinbo Velasquez gives Plaza the earl lead b beating Richard Lopez to this ball and then effectively displaces goalkeeper Marvin Ottley to open the scoreboard. Plaza then looks to make it 2 nil on this press but this time Ottley takes care of big. Around the 23rd minute this hardball inside the 18 provokes a penalty call from the referee in favour of Creative Tiles. Orlando Vega steps up for the conversion and this left foot ties the ballgame at 1 apiece. We’re easily into the 2nd half when this defensive error by Plaza gives possession to, of all persons, Landy Vega and again the left foot push tangles into net as Creative Tiles take a 2-1 lead. 10 minutes later, Mark Gentle gets this perfect feed from the left side—all he has to do is to tap it into an empty goal—he does and we have a 2-2 ballgame.

Now folks, this is a strange play; Gentle beats the goalkeeper to this ball and swings it at goal—Creative Tiles defender, Richard Lopez get there in time but his header crashes into the net for the dreaded auto-goal. Plaza goes on to post the 3-2 big W.

Now let’s check in on the Belize District 2011 championship currently in session at the MCC Grounds. In the U-17 matchup, Devaughn Zuniga unleashes this bomb from atop the 18 to give Smart Brown Bombers a 1-zip lead over Hattieville. Hattieville comes back when Richard Wright with is push out from the keeper and he smacks it home for the 1-1 tie. Nevertheless, Smart Brown Bombers would get goals from Steven Goff and Calvin Young to post the 3-1 Victory. In the U-20 matchup, Complex Admirals FC knocked off San Pedro 3-1 and at the U-15 Class, Rising Stars FC blanked Smart Brown Bombers 2-zip.

In news from the Belize District, female football competition yesterday, Tornadoes blanked Ladyville Orchids 5-zip, Island Stars shook up Untouchables 2-nil while Hattieville Heats defaulted to Millennium.

In basketball news, we caught up with the Belmopan Competition at the Hilltop Court where the 3 game semi finals got off. It’s Campari Blaze in action against Superstars who get rolling when Jarrel Velasquez gets them going with this triple—he would strike for eleven points. Campari Blaze’s reply comes from point guard, Alden Coleman with this runner for 2 of his 14 game points. Coleman then sets up Raul Roches with the alley oop but he banks it off the backboard. Roches will put up a 2 doubles of 15 points 15 rebounds. Jay Chavarria then throws up the underhand for 2 of his 15 points as Campari goes up by 5. At the other end, Alfred Bainton picks up this loose ball, gets the bucket and is fouled—he goes to the line and completes the 3 point play. Bainton would lead all scores with 19 points in this one. Dorian Jones comes right back for Campari Blaze with this left hand for 2 of his team high 17 points. Give Alfred Bainton some props people as he strikes for 3 to make it a 1 point ball game and Superstars would take the lead in the 3rd. However, good passing by Campari blaze gave them the 73-66 Big W.

Western Ballers blew past Phantom 75-48 after getting 16 points and 16 bopards from Kurt Burgess—both game highs. Marco O’brien added 15 points while Shannon Guzman threw up 11 in the Big W. Both temas meet again Thursday night at Capital City to renew hostility so stay tuned.

Jah Over All, I’m James Adderley.
