James Adderley’s groundbreaking sports update

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


The Volleyball Community convened inside the Belize Elementary Auditorium on Saturday in an effort to produce the 2012 Champion in both male and female play. Today, we start with ladies first as Lady Jaguars and Moen Stars clash in Game II of the 3 game championship series. Down a game, Moen Stars come out blazing as Sherlene Johnson skillfully finds Emma Horra who sets up Shelmadine Cacho for a monster smash. Horra and Cacho again combine their skills for this masterful touch that leaves Lady Jaguars looking when Taheera Ahmad returns this smash from Jasmine Anderson. Moen Stars grabs the 1st set in Game II in a 25 to 17 decision. Set 2 brings a keen struggle between these 2 teams and it’s Lady Jaguars with a 24 – 22 lead when Sherlene Johnson’s serve forces an easy point for the 24 – 23 score. However, Tichele Solis might have taken too long to serve, but the referee reverses himself after consultations and Lady Jaguars evens the game at a set apiece with the 25 – 23 finish.

Set 3 also proved to be a nail biter and we’re again tied at 23 points apiece when Solis’ return causes some miscommunication among the stars. And then Kelsey Balderamos mishandles this serve from Tanesha Encalada to hand Lady Jaguars a 2 – 1 lead. Folks, set 4 might have found a discouraged Moen Stars who feel easily in a 25 – 10 final score. Here’s the final point of the match as Sherylee Young-Thurton’s tap over the net is misplayed by Taheera Ahmad to give Lady Jaguars the 25 – 18 win and they grab the 2012 Female title. We say good show Lady Jaguars.

So we go to Game II of the Male Championship with Jaguars coming in with a 1 game lead over Rebels. Jaguars show a 21 – 19 lead when Elton Anderson sets up Arnie Augustine for the smash but the hitter has to relinquish the point for touching the net. On this point, Orel Leslie fails to handle the ball properly for the Rebels which allows the Jaguars to lead 24 – 19. And then he gives the opening set to the Jaguars with this poor serve as the Jaguars win 25 – 21. Folks, the Jaguars might have been guilty of complacency because they would not win another set. Off this serve, they show good team defense as Tarike Campbell and Elton Moore combine to return this smash from Shane Gentle for a 7 – nil score. Make it 11 – 2 when Jaleel Lino goes for power instead of accuracy on this smash. Rebels would go on to even the set at 1-apiece with the 25 – 13 score.

In cycling news, the Weekend Warriors Line trials was staged on Sunday mostly on the Boom Circuit. Shalini Zabaneh of Cayo Rentals won the 10 mile Master A Class in 23:03—the best time delivered overall. Perry Gibson of AAA prevailed in the Masters B Category with his time of 25 minutes 17 seconds. Stephan Bissett of BNE posted a time of 23:48 to win the Veteran’s A Category. Chris Berry also of BNE took the Veteran’s B Class in 27:38, while Earl Thompson of Cayo Rentals won Category C in 28:35. The next event on the Weekend Warriors Calendar is the National Road Championships.

Turning to the Table Tennis scene, the 2nd RF&G Biannual National Ranking Tournament was staged at the BES Auditorium over the weekend. Matthew Usher won the 15 and Under Cadet Class with Misheln Musa finished 2nd. Wen Te Chen beat Aaron Stock to capture the C-Division. Tyrone Tun was able to stop Hector Lopez to grab the B Division, while Nicholas Martin dispatched Tyron Tun to become # 1 in the A Division.

Finally in basketball news, interoffice play at Big Bird’s Isle Friday night saw CYDP blowout Telemedia 71 to 43. Marcel Orosco led the way with 20 points including four 3 pointers while Orwin Orosco added 15 points. For Telemedia, Ashley Hemsley hit 12 points; Kareem Thompson scored 8 points and pulled 7 rebounds in the loss.


Jah over all, I’m James Adderley.
