Ecumenical Basketball Auditorium will be one of the number one spots this weekend in Dangriga, as the home team from Dangriga, the Griga Dream Ballers will bounce back for their home this Saturday night at 9:00 p.m., as they take on the Belmopan Bandits. This will be a big game for the entire basketball fans, because Griga Dream Ballers defeated Belmopan Bandits in Belmopan. Gate opens at 8:00 p.m. Huge half-time give-aways! All are invited.
Our PLB home team, Wagiya, who is really, really struggling in the PLB Closing Tournament, went to the MCC Grounds last Sunday and lost in a close margin, 2 goals to 1. They will defend their home turf, Griga Carl Ramos Stadium, on Sunday at 4:00 p.m., as they take on Green Machine Verdes. The young, running Wagiya plays well at home.
