Dangriga Boys & Girls Club would like to inform all owners that next will be the U-15 Tournament coming up soon.


The Dangriga Warriors basketball fans would like to congratulate our home team Dangriga Warriors for that big victory in Belmopan on Tuesday night. That game was Dangriga Warriors’ home game that was played last Saturday night at the Ecumenical Basketball Auditorium. This game was in the fourth quarter, when one individual from the Dangriga fans ran on the basketball court and “bucked” the referee, which was unbecoming, that caused all the problems and the hold-up of the game. We want the Belizean people to know that it’s not the entire Dangriga fans who created the problem, but one individual. Dangriga is one of the sweetest places to come and play any discipline of sports. The referee then decided that Ecumenical Basketball Auditorium was getting too hostile, with only a handful of police officers, so they called off the remainder of the game. Home team Dangriga Warriors was up, 60-58, with 6 minutes and 58 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Appeal Committee made a decision on Monday night that the game would be continued at Belmopan UB gymnasium on Tuesday. No fans were allowed at the game. Dangriga also had to pay Belize City Hurricanes’ transportation to Belmopan; pay for Hurricanes’ food; pay for the gymnasium; and pay for the police. With all that, that only made the Dangriga Warriors stronger on Tuesday night. They won the continuation of the game that started from 6 minutes and 58 seconds. Dangriga Warriors won over the Hurricanes, 73 to 68.
All the best for our home team Dangriga Warriors in the playoffs this Friday night in San Ignacio against the number one seed, Cayo Western Ballaz.
