BELIZE CITY, Wed. June 6, 2018– Greetings from the Belize National Cricket Association (BNCA)!

Old Youth was a no-show for the Saturday match between themselves and Summer Fever in Bermudian Landing; the weather was a little rainy.
The Sunday match between Old Youth and Easy Does It was not played due to inclement weather. According to the President of the BNCA, Old Youth has given away both matches, and they will not be rescheduled.
The matches for this weekend are as follows:
Saturday, June 9
Summer Fever vs Police in Belmopan
Rural Mix vs Western Eagles in Rancho
BDF vs Sunrise in Lords Bank
Sunday, June 10
Berlan vs Wicked 11 in Flowers Bank
The results of some of these matches will determine the position of teams entering the playoffs; there may be some tie-breaker matches to determine playoff positions.
The picture above features Aaron Muslar of Easy Does It, who scored his first century (103 runs) for the 2018 season on Saturday against Western Eagles. Very nicely done, Mr. Muslar! Keep it up! This guy has been playing cricket from he was probably two years old, I believe – one of the best wicket keepers and an excellent batsman! He has won three back-to-back-back championships with the Easy Does It Cricket Team (2014, 2015, 2016), and is now working hard towards getting the 2018 championship. Once again, congrats to Aaron!
