City Boys make it to the championship round in Belize Bank Football League

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and this is Sports Monday. The stage was set yesterday for City Boys to take its destiny into its own hands as it hosted Hattieville F.C. yesterday at the M.C.C. in a bid to make it to the championship series. Knowing that they would have to get at least a point out this ballgame, City Boys get to a fast start when Raymond Gentle fire this corner kick into the danger zone at the eighth minute and Jack Dawson comes up with the conversion for the 1-zip lead. A few minutes later Shannon Flowers in defense for Hattieville today, makes this error going back to the goalkeeper that allows Dalton Cayetano to pounce but the push bounces off the near upright. Meanwhile, despite being out of the championship picture, Hattieville was not about to go down easy so Leon Jones bears traffic and fires this grass head burner that inches outside the sticks and at the half it’s still a 1-nil City Boys lead.

So we go to the second half and immediately Jason Young fires this bouncer that chips off the rear upright as William Johnson dodges a bullet. Jarret Davis, voted the best forward in the 2010 Super League, then fires this long distance spot kick that beats Charlie Slusher but travels outside the sticks. A few minutes later Dalton Cayetano forces the league’s best goalkeeper to make this stop. The rebound reaches Raymond Gentle who beat William Johnson only to fire a high riser when he should have scored. We’re at the seventy-eighth minutes when Raymond Gentle makes amends when he picks up this pass from Jason Young, eludes the keeper and fires into the far corner to give City Boys a 2-zip cushion. Jason Young then gets his turn to score off this feed from Diemery Pierre but Johnson comes up with a save he knows very little about. Meanwhile, for the second time in the ballgame Tyronne Mushcamp is taken down inside the eighteen, this time by Jarret Davis and referee Rommel Carballo rules penalty. Diemery Pierre and he beats Johnson early to make it a 3-zip City Boys lead. In the dying moments of this ballgame, Johnson fires this left foot bomb that bounces off the crossbar to Tyronne Muschamp who makes it a 4-zip big W for City Boys United and they’re off to the two game championship series inside the Belize Bank Super League.

In the other Super League match-up yesterday inside the Ricalde Stadium, Nizhee Corozal emerged as the other finalist by handing Placencia Assassin a 1-zip blast.

Thus the championship series begins at the Ricalde Stadium this Sunday with Nizhee Corozal hosting City Boys United in game one.
