Weekend Sporting Events with James Adderley

Good evening I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday. The Cayo first division football competition is heating up so we took on Saturday’s big time matchup inside the Norman Broaster Stadium as Westrac took on Hillview. It’s easy in the ballgame when Hillview goes to the set piece and this header by Noel Hyde certainly needs a secondary touch by Hugo Wilson to open the scoreboard. At the other end of the Norman Broaster, Omar Villalta’s left foot is menacing but fails to dip in time as it screams over the crossbar. Noel Hyde then gets a shot at redemption only to squander a golden opportunity with a high riser. Simon Bateman beats 2 in heavy traffic to launch an uncontested left foot that can accurately be described as disappointing and at half neither team has done enough to deserve a goal. So we got second half and this corner kick launched by Douglas Menjivar is mishandled by the goalkeeper, unfortunately the scoring opportunity finds the goal for Hillview. Hillview nevertheless remains the protagonist and this right foot slice by number twelve almost gets the job done. And yes Noel Hyde should have gotten a yellow card for this foul on the keeper. It’s getting late when Wetrac’s Elvin Larios launches this left foot sinker that forces Albert Welcome to come up with a necessary save. In the end this ballgame screeches to a scoreless stalemate as both teams share a point each from this ballgame.

Turning to women’s President Cup 2014 Sundays match-up between Smart Millennium of Belize City and DFC Gentle Touch played at the Norman Broaster Stadium descended into an ugly incident that led to its untimely demise. However, first things first. Some twenty minutes into the affair Shanell Gentle spits Alicia Avila off her line and powers this beauty over the head for the 1 0- zip lead. Five minutes later Elthene Gentle powers this left foot past goalkeeper Avila for the 2 – zip score. On this press Debbe Halliday hooks up with Kimberly Perez who makes it a 3 – nil lead for Gentle Touch. Folks it all Gentle Touch and if you don’t believe Shanelle Gentle has power – well her first attempt at the shot takes down Shaneika Franklin and her second launch make it a 4 – nil ballgame. So she celebrates. In the second half action Cynthia Salazar fires, the ball reached Abbi Halliday and it’s a 5 – zip Gentle Touch lead. The Gentle Touch rampage continues when Julie Ponce raises this ball top Cynthia Salazar whop scores for the 6 – zip lead. We are into the wining moments of this ballgame when quite unexpectedly violence breaks out. It starts on the left side between these two players and then it turned into a free for all despite the intervention of the referee and the presence of the police. The game was called with two minutes remaining, 4 r3ed cards were issued and subsequent report of their unfortunate incident in the Women President’s Cup 2014.
