Bodybuilding Champions…James Adderley with Sports News

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


Verdes FC has proven that unless Belizean football travels, we will remain unable to compete at the international level. Last Thursday’s 8-nil defeat to San Francisco FC at Panama mirrors that of their loss to Blanco Gallos at Queretaro Mexico. Here at home, Verdes FC conceded only 1 goal beating San Francisco 2 to 1 and holding Queretaro to a scoreless draw. However, away from the Jewel, they were scoreless and conceded 16 goals in CONCACAF Champion play. Nevertheless, they made history by achieving the first win for Belize at this level. Obviously without investing in travel over football will remain uncompetitive in the big arena. Now let’s head to the PLB Season which is running at full speed again.

Yesterday, inside the F.F.B. stadium, Belize Defense Force hosted Wagiya FC of Dangriga and it proved to be a blowout. 7 minutes in, James Flores takes advantage of poor defensive play by Allen Brooks of Wagiya to set table perfect for James Flores whose header lays the Griga’s keeper, Williams Johnson post for the 1-zip lead. Wagiya looks to reply when Ernest Flores finds Ean Lewis who should have done better with this look. At the 38th minute, Shane Flores mounts this individual off the right side and finished to give the B.D.F. a 2-zip lead. The B.D.F. looks for a 3rd when Shane Flores has this physical clash with goalkeeper Johnson; play continues, Flores can’t capitalize because of tough defense from Kyle Valerio—Orlando Trapp gets a shot at an open goal that veers outside the sticks. However, at the 45th minute, pounces on this nice pass from the defensive area to make it a 3-nil B.D.F. lead with his 2nd goal of the match. The military strikes again this time courtesy of Michael Myvette who beats Johnson as he comes off his line for the 4 zip score. Desperate to get Wagiya on the scoreboard, #15, we must say there’s no such number on the roster, fires a good looking shot that forces a good save from the B.D.F. keeper, Tevin Gamboa. The rout is concluded when James Flores comes up with the hat trick as the B.D.F. marches all over Wagiya with a 5-zip flurry. In other matches completed on Saturday, Belmopan Bandits bombed Police FC with a 4-1 blast. The Placencia/Verdes match was postponed and will be played on November 18th. Looking to week 7, on Saturday Wagiya battled the bandits at Independence –that’s at 7:30 p.m.  Verdes will host the B.D.F. on Sunday 4 p.m. at the Norman Broaster Stadium and Police will play Placencia inside the F.F.B. at 3:30 p.m.

In other football news, Belmopan’s 1st Divisional Tournament play yesterday saw Camalote Warriors double Roaring Creek United 2 to 1 and Duck Run outlasted Las Flores in 5-3 struggle. On the 1st November, Duck Run again faces Las Flores and a win puts them into the finals. Likewise, Camalote Warriors could arrive at the Championship series with another win over Roaring Creek.

Turning to the Belize Bodybuilding Championships staged at the Princess Hotel…we begin with the Novice Class and indeed it’s a display of male muscularity. Okay who is the baddest from among the 3? The judges say Abu Sesay is 3rd—maybe next year guy. Perry Castillo is judged to be 2nd in the gang of 3 while excitably; Majica Haynes with his chiseled body and incessant bursts of energy takes the top spot. We will say the champion is, shall we say, over enthusiastic. In the men’s physique class, Dilfio Arnaldo Toledo settles for 3rd. Andrew Shen took 2nd place and Auriel Lewis emerged the prime time showman in this category. In the welterweight category, Calbert Castillo takes 3rd place; David Requeña did enough work to earn 2nd and in the winner’s circle is Edgar Carballo. On stage he leaves no doubt out it. Michael Buckley places 3rd in the middleweight class. Deon Ortiz has to settle for 2nd place despite his awesome mass because Clayton Greenidge is the big man in the class.

The female athlete’s showdown was a feat for the eyes in the world of muscularity and it must have been incredibly difficult for the judges. Gina Lovell is relegated to 3rd place in this heated competition. Annlyn Apolonio steps up to 2nd place and the new belle of the ball is newcomer Margarita Stastaya. In the lightweight class, Deon Banner steps up to 3rd, Clayton Greenidge grabs 2nd place and Rigoberto Vellos again dominates as champion. 3rd place in the light heavyweight class goes to Deon Banner, 3nd place goes to a disappointed Rigoberto Vellos and the winner is Oyinkro Akpodobor and his win over Rigoberto Vellos simply cannot be disguised. Meanwhile, the battle for the prestigious Mister Belize title is intense. Edgar Carballo completes his routine and winds up in 3rd place. Oyinkro Akpobodor exudes confidence and his catlike moves are impressive; his symmetry is exquisite, but he has to settle for 2nd place. Why? Because he is edged out on points by the chiseled mass of Rigoberto Vellos. And of course, this podium picture speaks a thousand words. Congratulations to the Belize Body Building and Fitness Federation and congratulations to the overall champ, Rigoberto Vellos.

Finally in cycling news, the Weekend Warriors headed to the hills on Sunday for a 40 mile ride from Rockville junction to Busman Arnold hill on the George Price Highway and we find a huge field of A&B riders at the start. At St. Matthews, Kent Bob Gabourel and Preston Martinez has extricated themselves from the pelathon. Through roaring Creek, the duo maintain their dominance and the finish seems destined to be a 20-man duel. And indeed it’s a head on struggle won by Preston Martinez of Kulture Tours Megabytes who edges out his teammate, Kent Gabourel. Isaiah Willacy of the B class ruding for FT Williams rolls in for 3rd place. A class rider, Warren Coye of Santino’s rolls in for 4th place while Digicell 4G teammates Robert Mariano and Jack Sutherland pull in 5th and 6th respectively. To complete the B class, Mark Reid of Santino’s took 2nd and Ryan Willoughby 3rd. the C Class 30 mile ride was captured by Elden Staine Jam Hyde. Edward Blank of Stationery House/Medina’s took 2nd and Alfonso Morales of Caribbean Tires was 3rd in the class.
