James Town, Labadi to jostle for second spot

The final group games in Pool A will go to the wire as three teams have equal chance of progressing to the semi-finals.

Dansoman top the chart with maximum points from two games, followed keenly by Labadi and James Town with three points from two games with Adabraka rooted at the bottom.

What makes it increasingly tricky and interesting is the fact that both James Town and Labadi are locked on the same points but one with a superior goal difference and victory for both of them in their last games will boil down to the number of buckets scored.

Dansoman are the favourite to top the group but will have to wait to find out which other team joins them in the knockout phase.

James Town will be favoured in every contest on Saturday August 18 as they once again are a deep side to beat whipping boys Adabraka.

Coach Emmanuel Ekow Amoako’s team is loaded and revitalized at every position with elite talent and will be hard to stop- as witnessed by a blow-out victory over Labadi last week.

They will therefore fancy their chances of taking second behind Dansoman thanks to the dynamic Emmanuel Laryea and Robert Oman. But 14-year-old playmaker Ishmael Okine –one of the driving forces to James Town victory last weekend will also be on hand to revive their ambitions.

The analysis in group B is cleared out after both Burma Camp and Cantonments negotiated their qualification to the semi-finals after two wins from two games.

The other teams, Nima-Maamobi and Ridge will only play for pride in their last game.

The fixture between Cantonments and Burma camp will count for nothing as they both sealed their passage to the next round.
