The BPFL playoffs are scheduled to continue this weekend with two critical games for three clubs. Big Bad Sagitun and Builders Hardware Bandits are still alive to make it to the championships, but it?s more of life support for the Bandits, who have to win in regulation time to have a chance. For Griga United, Sunday?s home game against Gatorade Juventus has absolutely nothing of importance to them except if they want to play spoiler, or perhaps save face by winning.

If somebody had told you that the Belmopan Blue Devils ?got game,? and you hadn?t seen them in action, you would probably say, ?No, not ?Pan, they?re known for football, not basketball.? And then if you didn?t go to last night?s game, then it?s your loss, but you can and will get another opportunity to see Belmopan run when they return to the Civic Center on Friday, July 23rd, against BTL.
