The Koforida-based Junior High School produced a five-star performance to beat highly fancied and impressive Akosombo International School (AIS) in an epic final at the centre court of the Koforidua Secondary Technical School.
After their opening 17-12 victory over defending champions Anglican JHS, the sky was always going to be the limit for the physically endowed side as they strolled to successes over KOVOC, Madonna and Pentecost JHS before setting up the final showdown against AIS.
The likes of Selasie Vormawor, Emmanuel Tamakloe, Prince Twumeh, Gilbert Sosa and Frank Owusu are poised for the big fixture in the capital on April 13 and their coach remains confident about their surge in their debut appearance in the grand-finale.
“After my boys went past the defending champions Anglican JHS in our first game by 17-12, they saw the sky was going to be the limit,” Asare claimed.
“This inspired them to win the championship. They’re now waiting for the 13th of next month to receive their crown in Accra.
“I have absolute trust in my young players to bring the cup to the Eastern region. They will make themselves, the school and the region proud.
“We’re very grateful to the organizers for extending the game to the Junior High School level. My humble appeal is that balls should be presented to all participating schools since most of them do not have the balls to train,”
