Sporting Highlights with James Adderley

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


We caught up with Saturday night semi-final showdown in Firms Division Basketball as BWSL and the Belize Bank/Airport faced off in game II for the rights to move on to the championship round. On Friday night the Bank/Airport combination had ran over BWSL 60 to 46 for a 14-point big W. Thus BWSL got off to a fast start Saturday night as Brian Lewis dishes to Ashley Hemsley who knocks down the triple and would finish with 7 points tonight. Vince Lamb the postman keeps his team in the hunt by sinking this triple and would record the game high of 17 points while hitting 4 for 4 from the charity stripes. Nevertheless at the end of the 1st its BWSL with the 13- 5 lead. In the 2nd Chris McGann comes up big defensively handing Luis Barcelona this cruel rejection slip and he would chair the boards with 7 rebounds. However BWSL i8n control. Akeem Trapp works his way through traffic to land the left for 2 of his 6 game points. Barcelona then dishes to Lawrence Young who sinks the triple and would lead his team with 9 points and at the half BWSL has extended its lead to all of 20 points.

So the Bank/Airport goes to Charlie Dunk Armstrong and its Tarique Gabb who threads the needle to find him. Charlie would finish with the game high of 17 points. Still tonight BWSL is an unstoppable force. Lawrence Young misses the reverse lay but Luis Barcelona is there with the put back for 2 of his 5 game points. Off the throw in Kareem Thompson pulls the trigger and would put up 8 points. At the end of 3 BWSL is still up by 20 points. Belize Bank/Airport make a turn in the 4th. Tarrique Gabb comes up with the loose ball and provides the finish for his 8 points. Charlie Dush finds Vince the Postman and the triple lands. Can you believe it folks BWSL would be out-scored 21 to 4 in the 4th quarter wining 60 to 46. It’s important to note because the 2 game series is settled by the aggregate score from the 2 games The Belize Bank/Airport totaled 106 points while BWSL totaled 97 so it’s the Bank/Airport combination that moves on. They’ll face Complex who easily disposed of Central Health 68 to 56 and 75 to 69.

Turning to the Softball scene, B.T.L. routed Beacon 23 to 5 in game 2 to tie the semi-final 3 game at 1 apiece but Beacon came back to scorch the set 13-12 Wednesday night at Rogers to get into the Championship series against Belize Bank Blazers. So we go to game I and we’re in the bottom of the 2nd with 2 on base when Marsha Wills doubles off Verona Garbutt to bring in Ashley Lucas from 3rd and Keri Lizano from 2nd to make it a 3 – zip score. In the top of the 3rd  Ashley Lucas strikes out Hortense Thurton and would not concede a run. So we go to the bottom of the 3rd. With a runner on 3rd and 1out Lisa Jones comes up with this long fly to center field which is caught but it is enough to make it a 4 – zip score. In a pitcher against pitcher fuel Ashley Lucas powers this ball to the outfield as Fiona Peters scores from 2nd. Belize Bank Blazers would go on to post the 7 – zip big W in Game I and Game 2 is scheduled for Friday night at Rogers Stadium where Beacon faces a must win situation.

In Weekend Warriors Cycling news Warren Coye of Santino’s won the A Class 12 mile individual time trial in 28 minutes 33 seconds. Daniel Cano was clocked at 29 minutes 12 seconds for 2nd place. Stephen Bissett finished 3rd in a time of 29 minutes 25 seconds. At the B Class it was Ray Cattouse of Median’s/Stationery House first with a time of 29 minutes 4 seconds. Matthew Hughes of Big Blade finished 2nd in 29 minutes 35 seconds and Clarence Cassiam in 31 minutes 48 seconds. At the C Class Ingmar Perrera took top honours in 33 minutes 16 seconds with Glen Shepherd 2nd in 34 minutes 28 seconds and Manuel Esquiliano 3rd in 34 minutes 37 seconds.
