Police United wins PLB Championship

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and here’s our closing show for the year 2015.


It was 2 days after Christmas and football was at its peak. The best 2 teams in the PLB Tournament were set to meet. Fans would come from far and near…Verdes FC and Police United to greet. Expectations would run high and for the 2015 Championship title, both clubs would try. Well, we’ve got yesterday’s showdown inside the F.F.B. Stadium as 2 entered; 1 would leave with all the glory.  The Police comes in showing a 1-zip lead in the 2-game series having edged Verdes FC by that score inside the Norman Broaster in game 1. So it’s Verdes FC off to the fast start as Gilroy Thurton should have opened the scoreboard. At the other end, Devon Makin’s center forces this defensive header that finds Carlton Thomas who fails to find the target.

In the meantime, Danny Jimenez’s long distance screamer displays the velocity but not the accuracy. The Police continues to search to extend its precarious lead with this offering from Darien Myers that it swatted out of danger by Yusef Guerra in the Verdes goal and at the half, we’ve got a scoreless ballgame. Early into 2nd half action, Harrison “Kafu” Roches picks out Trevor Lennon with this nice curler; he beats the keeper to the ball, but El Capitan Rodney Pacheco digs it out with his head. Lennon thinks the ball has crossed the goal line, but the call stands. Hey referee Culroy Thurton takes down Devon Makin near the sideline and he proves lucky on 2 accounts. Makin is restrained and the color of the card is yellow. It’s getting late and the Police keeper Jamie Brooks sacrifices his body in the struggle for possession with Ricardo Jimenez. Carlton Thomas then gets this chance to open the scoreboard late in 2nd half play; the left foot push is handled by Yusef Guerra.

This set piece launch fives Deon McCauley a chance at the volley, but it’s right at Jamie Brooks. The Police gets another chance to add insurance to their title hopes only to see Darien Myers unleash a high riser just inside the 18. In the meantime, the dance into the danger zone by Kafu Roches is brilliant, but devalued by the finish. It’s Deon McCauley now trying to get Verdes going when he’s whacked by Amin August Junior. This corner kick by Verdes demonstrates the tension going down to long whistle as the attempt from Nahjib Guerra crashes into the stomach of his former teammate, goalkeeper Brooks. The footage shows it’s a no look and save Hollywood all rolled into one. And with the long whistle, Police United claims the 2015 PLB title with its one goal difference. We say congratulations. So let the fireworks begin.

Yes, the law rules again. they’re number one in the land. Checking in on the awards ceremony, Jamie Brooks of Police United took home the Best Goalkeeper award. Deon McCauley’s 9 goals gave him the Golden Boots. Darien Myers of Police was voted best young player. Dalton Eiley of Placencia Assassins won the Best Defender Award. Denmark Casey emerged with the Best Midfielder Trophy. Big up to Louis Torres of Placencia Assassins who walked away with MVP Honors and Hilberto Muschamp of Police United was deemed to be the Best Coach of the Year. And now it’s Berger time, Trevor Lennon of the Police is the big man of the playoffs. He is the MVP. Yo Big Mister Man.


Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
