Shattered Dowuona looks at the bright side of life

Catholic Jubilee’s Charles Dowuona was left dejected after his side failed to defend the 2012 Central Regional Milo Junior Ball Basketball Championship last Friday.

Dowuona, 13, was the side’s brightest spot with sublime performances for the home side as they strolled to an epic defeat against an impressive Mfantsipim side at the Jubilee court at Victoria Park in Cape Coast.

Their confidence reached an epoch stage after they begun the defence of their title on a blistering mood- beating the likes of George Ekem Ferguson and William De-Graft.

They put up a brave performance against Mfantsipim in the finals but in the end the Mauves and Yellows surrounded their title after a nerve-breaking spell on the court which got fans on tenterhooks for the better part of the exchanges.

He was livid with their inability to claw it back-to-back.

“I am very disappointed that we couldn’t win the cup. We were extremely determined to clinch it but things simply didn’t go well for us,”

“It’s was heartbreaking for all of us and hopefully we’ll be in for another chance in the finals in Accra.

“We have to pick the pieces and get to training because we have another opportunity to make amends,”

The youngster could not stop making the headlines with top-drawer performances for his side during the eight-hour competition.

He did what most 13-year-olds dream doing in advanced moments of their careers.

But the Mauves and Yellows star is a premature star. With few years of Milo Junior Ball experience he is a starter for his team and usually puts in eye-catching performances and he’s shown that self-belief is his main trademark.

It was spectacular display against William De-Graft, one of the impressive side’s in Cape Coast at the semi-final contest that sent his name among the toughest defenders in the competition.

Dowuona swatted three shot, including a monumental block from MVP Daniel Owusu that did not go unnoticed.

Surely he will live to fight another day during the grand-finale in Accra.
