James Adderley breaks down the weekend sports stats

Story PictureGood evening, I’m James Adderley rolling into your living room with this thing we call Sports Monday.

The Belize Premier Football League provided evidence of still being alive this weekend with the actual completion of a double header package. Upon checking we found out that of the seven teams that started the 2009 season only fie remain. The 2007 champion Llagulei of Dangriga departed because of a lack of sponsorship while the defending champion Nizhee Corozal left in a huff after an on field altercation with Hankook Verdes and of course you remember the B.P.F.L. also lost its sponsorship going into the season.

Okay, so now we’re off to San Ignacio where Hankook Verdes hosted the Belize Defence Force as both teams continue to dream of international football play. However, it’s the military firing on all cylinders early as David Trapp tries to force this grounder past the keeper who does well. In reply, Verdes goes to the set piece triggered by Norman “Tilliman” Nunez that reaches Marlon mega who fails to get it past the goalkeeper. On this B.D.F. push, Denis Serrano gets a look at goal only to expose a left foot that needs to go to school. At the other end, Daniel Jimenez lets loose this right foot with bad intentions that veers way from the target. In the meantime folks, this corner kick from Serrano does find Gilbert Swaso whose header inches outside the sticks.

Were in early second half play when Danny Jimenez turns on this ball outside the eighteen that sails just an inch too high to produce the intended results. Meanwhile folks, the B.D.F. again goes to the set piece in search of a goal and this delivery by David Trapp is good but William Luna comes out of goal to shut down that threat. Folks, I do believe Paul Nunez should have put the B.D.F. on the scoreboard on this look that sees his header sail over the crossbar. It’s getting late so Norman Nunez steps up to look for the game winner. He gets a look but it’s right at Woodrow West. Folks, not all competition matches are entertaining. So we’ll add this low to the mix as Danny Jimenez is clipped hard on the ankles and there’s not a card issued by the referee. Danny was taken directly to the hospital where it was found out that no bones were broken. For sure people neither team deserved all three points in this matchup and they’re pretty satisfied with the scoreless draw.

In the other match concluded yesterday under the B.P.F.L. banner, the San Pedro Dolphins jerked F.C. Belize 1-zip. Thus after week seven, Hankook Verdes leads with nine points on difference since FC Belize also has nine. Wagiya of Dangriga shows six, the B.D.F. five and San Pedro four. This weekend’s schedule finds Wagiya hosting San Pedro and FC Belize will battle the B.D.F. at the M.C.C.

Turning to the Belize Bank Super League, here are yesterday’s results. Texmar United edged Paradise Freedom Fighters 3-2, Placencia Assassin stopped san Felipe 2-1, Valley Renaissance bombed Santa Elena 4-1, Hattieville handed San Pedro a 1-zip blast and Kraal Road mashed Cayo South 6-2. Week eleven begins on Saturday with Cayo South sailing to San Pedro while Texmar will host Valley Renaissance. On Sunday Kraal Road goes to San Felipe, Santa Elena heads to Placencia and Hattieville FC heads to Toledo for a bate with Freedom Fighters.

In other football news, two juvenile matches were staged at the Yabra Field yesterday under the Health and Sports Programme being presented by the Embassies of Venezuela and Cuba, with the Hugo Chavez trophy at stake. In the under fifteen play, Poor and Famous and Yabra battled to a 2-2 stalemate while at the under thirteen class, Poor and Famous and Yabra settled for a 1-1 tie.

In table tennis news, here are the results from Sunday’s play in the 2009 Table Tennis League. Racqueteers beat Suga City 5-3, ACG got past Team Usher 5-2, Suga City defeated Team Sukhnandan 5-zip. Team ACG leads in the standings with a 4 and 1 showing while Team Racqueteers and Team Suga City both show identical records of 3 wins and one loss at this juncture. Stay tuned.

In cycling news, we take you to the fifth Bypass Criterium presented in OW by the Belize Cycling Association yesterday and this is the final turn around in the Elite event and the numbers do look encouraging. And this is a look at the massive crowd awaiting the arrival of the big finish. Here it is people, Jairo Campos is the first to pull the curve and the chase begins. Campos is riding for Team Typhoon hangs on to take top honours, Giovanni Choto of Suga City Stars pulls up second while Byron Pope of Benny’s Megabytes pulls up third. At the masters level, Wilbert Jones of Pediatrics is the big man as here he forces Luigi into second and Phillip Dawson into third. In the Junior Class, Geon Hanson of Indeco is unreachable as he takes top honours, Edward Reyes of Smart gets second and Christopher Andrews of C-Ray pulls up third. Joel Borland riding for Indeco takes the top prize at the tiny mites level as he beat out Brandon Morgan riding unattached and Christopher Andrews of C-Ray in that order. In the meantime, big respect to Shalini Zabaneh who grab female class in uncontested fashion. Gina Lovell of Team Lovell pulls up second and Jane Usher settles for third place.

Finally folks, the Belize Cricket Association and the National Cricket Association have agreed to a recreational management game and we have Alburn Rivero, one of the coordinators, to fill in the details.

Alburn Rivero, Organizer, Recreational Management Game
“Just last week the management of Excellent Cricket Club and the management of Sunrise Cricket Club sat down and came up and agreed on a friendly recreational management game. These games will be played—the first one will be played in Double Head Cabbage on the twenty-first of October and the second one will be played in Lords Bank on the twenty-fourth of October,”

Cricket fans, we don’t want you to forget that the games between these two teams will be massive. You don’t want to miss it so I remind you stay tuned.

Hey, that’s our show for today. We invite you back same time, same place, next week. Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
