Ball kicking, hoop shooting Sports Monday highlight

Good evening I’m James Adderley and this is sports Monday.


The 2013 PLB playoffs got off to a roaring start over the weekend so we took in game 1 of the home and away series between Police United and the Belize Defense Force inside the FFB Stadium at the Capital City Saturday night.


Folks we’re only 4 minutes in when Amin August Jr. strips the BDF defender Paul Nunez of the ball and then picks out the near corner of goal defended by Frank Lopez to give Police a 1- zip lead.


The BDF immediately seek out the equalizer off this set piece as Vallan Symms picks out Trevor Lennon whose header forces a big time save from Japhet Young.


However here’s the corner kick off repeat save Shane Flores fires at goal but fins Tyrone Pandy ho smacks it into the far corner to the ball game at 1 a piece at the 11th minute.


A few minutes later Shane Flores gets this beautiful pass from Harrison Tasher for this open look at goal and he blows it.


Now here’s a bit of controversy, the BDF keeper Frank Lopez handles this ball just outside the 18 and the referee makes the call. After failing to convince the referee to reverse his decision. Lopez says the wrong thing for which he is promptly chased off the field of play.


Delroy Roaches takes over and the BDF is up to 10 men on the field of play. So we go to 2nd and Andres Makin sets up Daniel Jimenez for this open look which he raises over the cross bear.


Jimenez tries to make amends off the set piece and is denied by only the finger tip touch of the BDF goal keeper. Folks we’re into extra time when this ball rebounds off Shannon Flowers to Amin August and he powers it home for his 2nd goal of the match to give Police a 2-1 lead.


A minute later Jimenez raises this set piece to find Trevor Lennon whose header is mishandled by Roaches and Police United after losing 2 straight to the BDF exact sweet revenge at the right time to post a 3-1 big win take a 1 game lead in this semi- final series. In the other match up in this home and only race to the finals Avian Crawford’s 2nd half goal propelled FC Belize to a 1-zip win over to defending champion Belmopan Bandits.
