Greater Accra reaches home stretch

Week two of the Greater Accra 2012 Indomie Community Dunks sparked scenes of joy and disappointments as eight communities fought with brevity to outclass and outscore each other.

Burma camp continued their high scoring feat on week two in an incredible fashion and clearly put them miles ahead of their opponents.

Their resounding 58-33 victory over Nima-Maamobi has placed them under the spotlight as the huge favourite for the crown.

Coach Raymond Maha’s charges played with a stubborn and very capable resolve. The final scoreline did not only indicate how strong they are, but it also depicted the fact that they are a genuine title contenders.

Even though Burma Camp had the edge 40-23 at the start of the fourth quarter, they kept pushing and pushing to ensure they end the game on a high.

A critical defensive lapse by Nima-Maamobi allowed Burma Camp to drive the basket for far too many to kill of their qualification ambitions.

Two defeats in two matches have sealed their doom, meaning they have missed the chance to play in the grand-finale in Accra.

It was a compelling and dramatic game between rivals Ridge and Cantonments as the two old foes clashed at the CYCC basketball court. Cantonments eventually won 18-15 to secure their qualification to the semi-finals.

Burma Camp and Cantonments have negotiated their semi-final ticket and the right to play in the grand-finale after two wins from two games.

But it is the dynamics in group A that will surely set-up the appetite for a big-time game on August 18.

Both James Town and Labadi have the same points and the same goal difference and their last meeting will determine which of them will join Dansoman in the semi-finals.

Labadi will battle Dansoman while James Town will take on whipping boys Adabraka.

  1. I came to watch the community dunks and i think the kids playing are more than 15 years old, i asked some of the players and they comfirmed they are more than 15 years and the organisers claim they brought their birth certificate to show they are 15, this buffles me alot because this is Ghana, you can tell a persons age without being told. Certificates can be designed every where so Please do something about it, it doesnt speak well of the organisers and Ghana basketball officials there.
