By Aaron Humes: Last week’s edition of the 2022 Sprite “Live Life” Youth Basketball Tournament was postponed due to rain but returned to Hattieville, Belize District on Saturday.
One game was canceled, but in the other five games the Mayflower Bombers defeated Ebony Lake 34-30; Police stopped Freetown Hitters 36-30; Dan One eliminated the Mahogany Heights side 25-22; Complex Titans beat Ladyville Big Dreams 60-58 and hosts Hattieville Underdogs toppled Pinks Alley 34-19.
But the scores take a back seat to the real purpose of the tournament – according to the police department, “rival groups hanging out together peacefully, reasoning with each other, communicating with each other positively…competitiveness of heart and soul.” disciplined soul, sportsmanship, leadership and control behaviors displayed on and off the Hattieville Village community basketball court.
The Department thanks all those involved and all those who contributed to its realization. The action continues this week in the Yabra region.
