Both teams are eyeing a place at the semi-final spot and Tuesday’s meeting will underscore their quest to wrestle the right from each other.
The contest bring to the fore the experience and technical know-how of two veteran coaches who have seen it all at the top level in Ghana. Coach Braimah Lawah on one side for CEPS and senior compatriot Mathias Ocloo on the other for CYO.
On paper, the former Enugu Rangers player and coach should triumph on the day with sassy ease against Mr Ocloo. Not because he has technical superiority over the former national team coach, but as a result of the quality of players at his disposal comparable to the ones at the mercy of his counterpart, one should not expects any serious challenge from CYO.
After all, it won’t be news because they beat them in the series last season and so undoubtedly it should be strolled on for them. But hold on!
In the midst of all the overriding features that put CEPS as clear favourite in their tie, point guard for CYO, Felicia Sarpong is refusing to be drawn into the debate and reckons the court will do the talking for them on Tuesday afternoon.
‘We admit they beat us fair and square in the season but this is a different competition with different temperament and so we’re ready to face them squarely this time around’
‘We’ve got lot of respect for CEPS but they are beatable and so we would do our best to prove our critics wrong. It’s a must win game for s and we would do our best.’ she added
