The three Belikin Cup matches advertised for Sunday, twenty-seventh October were among the victims and will be stages Wednesday at 7:30 P.M. Paradise Freedom fighters will host Police United at the Toledo Union. San Ignacio United gets a visit from the BDF while F.C. Belize will be at the M.C.C. to face Verdes F.C. weather permitting of course. Looking to week six we find three matches scheduled for 7:30 P.M.   on Saturday. Police will face F.C.

In basketball news Game II of the BDBA Firms 2013 finals scheduled for Friday night at Bird’s Isle was also rained out and the Association has confirmed that this game comes up this Friday, November first. In the meantime, the junior exhibition match up between Team Truckers and SJC on Friday’s undercard was completed before the rains fell. In an exciting match that went into overtime, Truckers rolled past SJC in an 80-76 final score.  Meanwhile folks, only the CSSA Volleyball Competition completed its schedule of ballgames.
