One sportscaster; amazing Monday night sports highlights

James Adderley

Good evening, I’m James Adderley and welcome to this portion of Sports Monday.


Week thirteen of the PLB Season found FC Belize needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive as they hosted Juventus of Orange Walk inside the MCC Grounds yesterday. Thus it’s no surprise that FC Belize roars out of the starting blocks in search of the three points and it might have been a perfect start when Michael Hernandez fires this shot at goal. Amir Leiva punches it out; the ball bounces onto the crossbar and comes back to Khambril Blease who smacks it home but the referee rules for corner kick instead. At the other end of the field, Norman Tilliman Pipersburgh fires this bouncer at goal only to see Glenford Chimilio make the stop. It’s Tilliman again; this time looking to score off the set piece but it’s right at the keeper, Glenford Chimilio. At the fortieth minute, Avian Crawford picks out Christobal Gilharry who controls with a chest kill and then fires a right foot volley that gives FC Belize a 1-zip lead. Juventus looks for the equalizer off this corner kick; Jian Tech keeps it alive off the defensive header to Osman Duran who misses the target from close range.


In the second half action, Michael Hernandez outruns Gilardo Cervantes to fire this left foot which inches outside the far upright. At the seventy-fifth minute, Avian Crawford again works his magic to set up Michael Hernandez who smashes it home for the 2-zip FC lead. Khambril Blease then gets two chances on this press to make it a 3-zip lead for his team but is first denied by Amir Leiva and then by Jian Tech. John King also gets the opportunity to extend the lead but is failed by the final touch. FC Belize gets the 2-zip W to keep their playoff hopes alive.


In other results from the weekend of play, Placencia Assassins crushed Verdes 4-zip, Police bombed RG City Boys 4-1, the B.D.F. doubled San Pedro Sea Dogs 2-1, Belmopan burned San Felipe Barcelona 1-nil, Paradise Freedom Fighters got the 1-zip W over San Ignacio.

The victorious national team returns tomorrow, Tuesday at ten a.m. Good show guys.


Turning to the UWI Day of Races; it proved again to be a smashing success so let’s get busy. In the primary school male class, Andrew Bennett rode in unchallenged for top honors, Derrick Chavarria takes second and Joshua Gillett third. Paulita Chavarria prevailed in the female class and Diane Cleland rolled up for second place. Derrick Chavarria easily won the next primary school race as Juan Medina finishes second and Derrick Brown, third. Meanwhile, Derrick Chavarria took top honors in the Open Kids Male event beating out Andrew Bennett while Charleston Cleland finished third. In the open female ride, Paulita Chavarria looked impressive as she forces Diana Dailey into second place. At the Masters level, the big W boiled down to a two man sprint as Raymond Hyde of Santino’s prevailed over Barney Brown and then Preston Martinez rolls in for third. Joel Borland of Telemedia Cycling beat his teammate Giovanni Lovell for the Junior Class while Delawn Abraham pulls up third.  In the Open Male Class, the finish saw a three man sprint and the win goes to Erwin Middleton of Capital City cycling who beats out Giovanni Lovell and forces Barney Brown into third place.

To Mrs. Jane Bennett and the entire UWI Staff, we say good show and let’s do it again.


Meanwhile folks, the elite riders might not have participated in this UWI event because the election of officers to the BCA, which should have occurred on Saturday, but was aborted. The National Sports Council refused to sanction this vote because they deemed the format unconstitutional. So we now look to December eighth when the general assembly of the Belize Cycling Association will decide which constitution to uphold so stay tuned.
