ADISCO HAUNTED BY MFANTSIPIM’S DOMINANCE

It sounds crazy and possibly weird but it may take more than determination and team chemistry for Adisadel College (Adisco) to halt the incredible run of Central regional Champions Mfantsipim in the Sprite Ball Championship.

The two perennial rivals have been at each other’s throat for the past three years in the most prestigious basketball competition amongst high schools in the region but the oldest Senior High School in Ghana has won the battle for pride and in return lifted the trophy for the third consecutive time.

Mfantsipim once again underlined their status as the most successful and ‘feared’ basketball team in the region with a swash buckling performance to silence the hundreds of Adisco fans who had gathered at the Schools and Colleges Park at Cape Coast over the weekend

For once, Adisco thought the exploits of power forward Selassie could inspire them to beat the rivals for the first time in the competition but that was never to be as they suffered another humiliating 17-5 defeat in the boy’s final.

Mfantsipim were technically and tactically superior on the day and the huge presence of the talent on shore-was too much for Adisco to contain as they taught them some lessons in the game.

It’s been the same scenario for the past three years where Mfantsipim have strolled on to become victories with so much ease.  

It’s gradually emerging that Cape Coast Technical Institute (Cape Tech) is rather proving to be strong contenders in the region and for the second time running, they’ve given Mfantsipim a good run for their money.

Buoyed by the death of the 2009 discovery of the year, Martin Hoodbroke who was the pivot around which the side evolved,  only a  momentarily loss of concentration made Cape Tech pay in their opening round robin fixture losing the breath-taking and end to end action 11-10.

Many fans left the venue well-convinced Adisco especially will probably need a miracle to stop the incredible run of ‘Kwabotwe’.
