DANGRIGA, Wed. Feb. 1, 2017–Secondary schools football

In last week Friday’s do-or-die game from the Dangriga Zone between the males of Ecumenical and Delille Academy, after 60 minutes of serious, hard, competitive action, the match ended in a 3 to 3 draw. It was a must-win for Delille Academy males. Ecumenical males only needed a draw, since both schools were tied in points, but Ecumenical was up by a 1-goal difference.

That draw sent Ecumenical males to the District Regional Finals along with Delille Academy females from the Dangriga Zone this Saturday, February 4, hosted by George Town Technical High at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium in Independence. From the Independence Zone will be George Town Technical High males and females, along with Independence High males and females.  From the Toledo Zone will be Julian Cho males and females.

The Regionals start at 9:00 a.m. this Saturday.

NEBL basketball

It was an 8-point loss for our home team, Dangriga Dream Ballers, last week Friday at Ecumenical Basketball Auditorium against the Cayo Western Ballaz.

That was a big, huge turnout, with basketball fans from all over Dangriga and surrounding villages who came out and supported their home team, Dangriga Dream Ballers.

The feedback from all the fans down south is positive. Everybody loves their team for this season, and are ready to support all the way to the very end.

Big-up to all the young players and our two imports from the United States of America, one from California and one from Nashville, Tennessee.

Big-up to our executive body for the Dangriga Dream Ballers, who all came up late and took control to keep this franchise in the culture capital of Belize, Dangriga.
