Host Ghana Senior High (Ghanasco) are relishing the prospect of making it double joy after both their boys and girls negotiated their respective ties in the 2010 Northern regional Sprite Ball Championship.
It was a sweet flowing and attacking game from the boys who managed to beat their highly unfancied Dabokpa Vocational Technical 21-6 while compatriot strolled past Kalphonin 8-1 in a one sided game in front of a demanding and charged atmosphere.
Ishmael Ayiwole has been the key figure for Ghanasco with some sublime piece of skills and individual brilliance that propelled them to their first victory. Their opening day performance will not go unnoticed and have clearly emerged as one of the forces capable of lifting the trophy in the region.
Ayiwole combined effectively with Prince Owusu Ansah, Dickson Adrago as they strolled past their opponent with so much attacking proficiency.
The game in the boys division has been electrifying and mind blowing as teams continues to exhibits skills and chemistry to the admiration of fans who are here in their numbers.
But that cannot be same scenario in the girls division. The quality of play from the young girls has been far from convincing. Almost all the girl teams have resulted to transition basketball which has culminated in low percentage shot.
Nyaaba Modesta, Kpaga Salonie and Banono Severa have been impressive for Ghanasco girls.
