Carlos Perdomo, Caribbean Shores Area Representative; Lee Mark Chang, standard bearer for Freetown; and Belize Healthcare Partners Limited is in its final stages this week.

 In the U-15 Category, the Belize Bank took first place honours as they won over the Freetown Hitters in a nail bitter 61-58 to take the best of three finals. Kachief Thomas and Sherwin Garcia poured in 23 and 18 points respectively for the Bulldogs, while Raheem Staine and Raheem

Mariano threw in 24 and 14 points in the losing effort for the Hitters. West Landivar Ascension took third place and Button Wood Bay Jaguars ended up in the cellar in this category.

In the 16-23 category, it was Seh Sorry defeating UB Jaguars in the best of three finals to take top honours in this category. In the final match, Seh Sorry finished the season with a 6 and 1 record, defeating a short-handed UB team 52-44. Ervin Orosco led Seh Sorry with 16 points while Travis Lennan led UB Jaguars with 10 points. Sea Shore Bombers took third place in this category and we say congratulations to all teams for a good show.

In the O-23 category, the regular season wrapped up on Monday 27 July and the finals began on Tuesday.  In the regular season, it was Police clinching the top seed with a 5-1 record as they defeated No Limits out of Belama by a score of 43-37.  Police was led by Chester Noralez who scored a game high 16 points while Steve Bonnel led No Limits with 12 points.  No Limits closes out their regular season with 3 wins and 3 losses.  Coming in a close second with a 4-2 record was the Young Money team who defeated Seh Sorry by a score of 44-38. In the early part of the game Seh Sorry took a 17 point lead, but stifling defence and solid inside scoring from Ernest Broaster and outside gun from Dave Polonio who each scored 15 points brought back the Young Money and granted them another victory.  Seh Sorry’s lead scorer was Marvin James with 14 points.  Seh Sorry closes their season without a single win.

In the U-23 finals, No Limits will be battling Seh Sorry for third place honours while Young Money and Police will do battle to see who the true champion in their category is. 

On Thursday night, all roads lead to Buttonwood Bay Park as the Hon. Carlos Perdomo and Lee Mark Chang along will be on hand to issue trophies, medals and prizes to all the winning teams.  Official ceremonies begin sharply at 7:00 p.m.
