The Under-15 boys from Cape Coast were flawless at the one-day tournament, tearing their opponent apart with ease to stand tall at the podium with the title.
They managed victories over Greater Accra duo Dansoman and Cantonments and Kumasi-based Asokwa to top group B.
Thompson’s young players continued their impressive performance to virtually destroy highly-fancied Burma Camp 41-12 to cap an incredible feat at the El-Wak stadium on Saturday.
Kawanopado have a famous basketball history in the Central Region and the fact that they beat a determined Kwadaso side to clinch the ultimate diadem bears ample testimony of their stronghold as a great basketball brand in the coastal region of Ghana.
“I told you from the start that we were going to win the cup and our efforts have been rewarded in the most emphatic manner,” Thompson said on Basketball TV
“I was not impressed with the performance of my team from the onset but we continued to improve match after match and you’ve seen it yourself,”
“We want to say that the home of basketball is in Cape Coast. We want to thank our folks back home for the massive support that they have given us all this while,”
“I believe we will continue to dominate for many years. Mark my words.”
The strategy of Kawanopado was simple. The coach expected hard work in practice and in the games itself and the players executed that plan to perfection.
They had good chemistry, won by large margins, yet they showed the ability to pull off a stunning comeback against the Kumasi-based side in the finals.
