It is without doubt that Kawanopado’s captain Benjamin Sagoe belongs in the realm of champions.
With a Central Regional and national Junior High Basketball title under his belt, he knows no bounds as he thrilled fans at the El-Wak stadium during the finals of the 2012 Indomie Community Dunks.
The Aggrey Memorial student was arguably the most devastating player on the court with riveting performances that awed many local fans.
He combined effectively with Anthony Duodu, tearing their opponent apart in a tournament that they had to win by the scruff of the neck.
But their semi-final game against Burma Camp belonged to the talented power forward as his individual brilliance coupled with the agility of Duodu, Kingsley Whyte and Daniel Owusu condemned their Greater Accra-based opponent to a massive 43-12 defeat.
But Sagoe refused to take the plaudits for his man-of -the tournament display.
“It is not about me but about the collective effort of the team. I trained hard for this finals and I thank God it went well for us,” Sagoe said
“Like I have said in previous interviews, Cape Coast is the home of basketball in Ghana and we have proven that beyond all reasonable doubts.
“We hope to continue with our performance next season. We are not going to rest on our owls and sleep thinking all is home and dried.
“We want to dominate this competition for many years and that’s the grand plan.
He added: Our coach has been fantastic and his tactics worked to perfection. The dream is certainly on course.”
If Kawanopado Raptors fly their flag, many will surely adopt coach Claudius Thompson’s young charges as their second favourite side.
