Over-40 apologies; scores without games

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. July 26, 2018– “Once bitten, twice shy,” and we promise not to get caught like this again. In our last report on the National Over-40 football competition, on page 22 of Tuesday’s Amandala, July 24, 2018, we erroneously reported on games that were actually not played; and we sincerely apologize for that error. Being out of town for the weekend, we followed the Over-40 web site reports, and the scores recorded appeared as game results. From our experience, either a game is not played, or a forfeiture is represented as a (3-0) win for the team that showed up. Anything else reflects scores on the field; but we learned something new. With meaningless games for teams out of playoff contention, and referees unavailable, apparently an agreement was arrived at and numbers posted, and we’ll leave it at that. The scores, 1-1 between San Pedro Veterans and Lake Medina’s H.J., and 1-0 for Mango Creek Veterans over Belmopan Veterans, remain as reported, according to the tournament organizers.

According to Over-40 Chairman, Peter Alvarez, the last two back matches are still scheduled for this Sunday; one because it will impact on the seeding for the semifinal match-ups, and the other because the non-playoff teams want to play.

Sunday, July 29
4:00 p.m. – Kulture Yabra Veterans vs San Pedro Veterans  –  MCC Grounds
4:00 p.m. – Dangriga New Site Erei vs Belmopan Veterans  –  Carl Ramos Stadium
