Football, Basketball and Cycling Updates on Sports Monday

Good evening I am James Adderley and this is Sports Monday.


Yesterday’s PLB matchup between the Champions Verdes FC and Police United inside the Norman Broaster Stadium proved to be a nail biter as both teams tried to establish themselves as the team to beat. Orlando Jimenez uses this set piece to get the Police on the scoreboard with a squeeze but Benito Morriera reads the intent. Kafu Roaches then weaves his way through traffic to fire from point blank range and again goalkeeper Morriera is well planted. At the half neither team has done enough to impress the scoreboard. In the second half the action picks up, the Brazilian import handles this center to fire a half volley that isn’t too far off the mark. Verdes continues its hunt for the goal with this set piece launch from Deon McCauley. It doesn’t quite curl which allows Jamie Brook to come up with a comfortable save. Verdes is in the ascendency when Shamir Pacheco triggers this set in front of the goal forcing Jamie Brooks to wish hard for the save. Pacheco comes back to the hunt for goal this time the launch is too high. At the other end Darien Myers punches from outside the eighteen with the left foot only to see the shoot were outside the sticks. Super striker then fires this on the run close range bomb that converts itself into a high riser. Trevor Lennon looks to open the scoreboard for the Police with this grounder from atop the eighteen that just misses the target. Jarrett Davis comes up with a flash of brilliance on this individual effort but the left foot finish lets him down by inches. In the end neither team had done enough to deserve the win so they settle for a scoreless stalemate. In the only other math conducted over the weekend Placencia Assassins wounded Wagiya in a 5 – 2 blast at the Michael Ashcroft Saturday night. The advertised matchup between the BDF and Belmopan Bandits was postponed due to repairs being done inside the MCC Grounds.

Checking the Orange Walk Mundialito we caught up with Saturdays Schedule as Vibes Alive took on Juventus. Vibes Alive grabs the 1 – zip lead when Alex Jose Eco beats the goalkeeper to this ballad slices perfectly. Meet Kale Jones who launches this spot kick like a pro to make it 2 – zip lead in early 2nd half play. Miss Jones then strips the defender and then fires to make it a 3 – nil score. Kale Jones is a talent people and on this play she turns provider dealing perfectly this play to Mark Bainton who knocks it home as Vibes Alive make it a 5 – zip blowout. Meanwhile the nightcap between Belize Team and Centaur Minions was settled by penalty kicks. Justin Lopez the Centaurs keeper comes out to give his team a 1 – zip lead. Aiden Leive to score the only other penalty to give Centaur Minions the 2 – zip lead.

On Saturday Belmopan shook Cayo Interstellas 38 to 9, Benque Power got the default from Belmopan Flames, Panthers beat RCV Stallions 51 to 44 and on Sunday U-23 action saw Mic Roe Light & Peace shut down Warriors 68 to 28. In over 35 play Yabra 63 to Belmopan 30, The Seniors competition Light & Peace Offshore Solutions edged Falcon Ballers 49 to 46.

Looking ahead this Alpha Warriors battle Black Hawks, Belmopan takes on PSU Special Effects and Seniors RCV Stallions face Snipers. On Saturday its Bulldogs against Santiago Juan Warriors, Invaders will tackle Yabra and Panthers takes swing at Light & Peace.

In cycling news, here’s the start to yesterdays Weekend Warriors 40 mile ride from Cotton Tree to Leslies Imports for category A & B riders. Around mile 10 we get a look at the pelathon which remains more or less intact as they streak towards the city. The lead at this point is negligible. At tape time it’s a field sprint and its Robert Mariano of Digicell 4G raising his hands in victory; Kareem Flowers of Santino’s settles for a close second, Palas Joseph of Lampaz is third, Warren Coye of Santino’s is fourth while Barney Brown of Culture Tours/Megabytes rounds out the top five. At B Class Isaiah Willacy of FT Williams takes top honors with Ryan Willoughby of Smart in second and Francis Cassasola of Santino’s in third. In C Class Elden Hyde of Lampaz grabs the top spot with Alejandro Moralez of Caribbean tires second and Eustace  Telford of Lampaz third.
