Everything that has a beginning certainly has end and truly it ended in style in the women’s series of the Greater Accra basketball series on Saturday.
The Ghana Police Service reaffirmed their dominance in the series by clinching the championship for the second time in row in a ground breaking victory over nemesis CEPS at the Prison’s court.
They beat their foes 52-46 on Saturday to end the challenge and dream of Coach Braimah Lawah’s side who came into the final day with so much optimism and fortitude.
The championship was decided on the final of competition after both CEPS and Police went unbeaten prior to their clash over the weekend. The match lived up to it pre-match hype with both determined to outclass each other.
Both teams showed so much ferociousness and firepower but in the end it was the defending champions who kept their heads above waters to triumph on the day.
The defending champions took the game to their opponent with some fleet flowing game coupled with some transcendent piece of skills and dexterity on the court to ensure they go home and dry thereby increasing their silverware stock.
Turbo Jets ended the championship on a high following their 50-46 victory over Holy Family in the first game of the day. It was quite a shocking result for Holy Family who went into the final game buoyed by their Wednesday’s success over Magic at the Lebanon court.
Ironically Magic bounced back from their Wednesday blip to record a narrow 43-30 win over Reformers.
So another season in the Greater Accra basketball series is gone – in a competition which was fraught with some amount of controversy and power play.
The attention will now be shifted to the annual Thommy Cabalan championship which jump ball on August 7.
