Opening of Pok-Ta-Pok World Cup in Orange Walk

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Three-time World Champions Ek’ Balam Belize won their first two games in the Pok-Ta-Pok World Cup which started on Friday at the Orange Walk Multi-Purpose Complex.

Ek’ Balam Belize, playing in the Black Group, first demolished Guatemala’s Ajpopab Tzutujil 108-0 and then dropped  El Salvador’s Kuskatan 2 50-34.

Ek’ Balam Belize is done for the day. They will play three games on Saturday. Initially they were scheduled to play three games on each day but Panama’s two teams didn’t come, so the Black Group was reduced to six teams and the White Group to five.

In the other matches played so far in that the Black Group, Mexico Black beat the United States’ Ixiin Kaak 88-25.

Guatemala’s Ajpopab Tzutujil defeated El Salvador’s Kuskatan 2 95-9, Mexico Black won over Honduras’ Gualcarque 111-23 , and the United States Ixiin Kaak doubled up on El Salvador’s Kuskatan 2 60-29.

Guatemala’s Ajpopab Tzutujil won their second game defeating winless Honduras’ Gualcarque 44-28 in the seventh and final game of the day.

The Men’s White Group and the Women’s World Cup are being played today at the Orange Walk People’s Stadium. Belizean representative Kinich Ahau reportedly won their first two games as well, but details aren’t forthcoming yet. The Women’s Kinich Ahau reportedly lost their first game.

The first round ends on Saturday. The groups will switch venues.

The semifinals and finals will be played on Sunday.
