Ridge who were bridesmaid last season were a pale shadow of their former self and Saturday’s defeat to Sam Tagoe’s charges has given them a rude awakening that their quest to go a step further in 2010 will not be achieved on a silver platter.
This year’s tournament has rather turned out to be one for the underdogs. Cantonment were shocked by debutant Teshie-Nungua and one hardly expected Ashaiman to negotiate their tie against highly fancied Maamobi CYCC.
The opening day phenomenon has placed so much at stake on Saturday when the second round fixtures in the group stages takes centre stage and the veteran coach who also doubles as the technical head for Greater Accra champions CEPS, expects his young players to keep their heads above waters on September 18.
‘It’s a shame we lost the opening game but the boys must understand that you can’t play such games as is if there is nothing at stake and imagine to win the championship’.
‘We didn’t take our chances and think we need to work on our defensive network before the next game. We’re obviously disappointed with the result and we’re going back home to do our home work well and hopefully we would get a positive result Saturday.
Ridge’s next game in season -2 of Community Dunks is against James Town who also lost their opening game against host Legon.
