Sam Tagoe and his counterpart Abeiku Solomon negotiated their respective ties on Saturday and must now come up against the new comers, Teshie-Nungua and Legon on Saturday to settle for placement in the grand finale on Saturday.
Whipping boys James Town put up a brave fight over the weekend at the University of Ghana basketball court but that wasn’t enough to hand them a place in the knockout phase.
Kaneshie must now beat Teshie –Nungua to be guaranteed a place in the finals.
Sam Tagoe’s boys from the start of the tournament have been extremely superb but their last meeting against the James Town showed they could be brought down to earth after all. James Town made a huge surge in the final quarter and nearly dotted the impregnability of their opponent.
The second semi-final game involving Maamobi-Nima and Legon is one that has been described as ‘fit for the gods’ as both teams attempt to win and play in the grand finale.
Legon’s victory over last year’s bridesmaid Ridge was fraught with confusion in the run up to the match as they arrived late for their fixture. Veteran coach Braimah Lawah and his technical staff had almost threatened to pull the plucks on the match but for the timely intervention of authorities who persuaded them to play.
The University of Ghana basketball court will be the centre of attraction when the final pairings are rolled out on October 2 2010 and we can’t certainly wait for the cliff hanger.
