Reformers and Tema Youth were among the winners of the opening day of the Thome Cabalan Championship at the Lebanon house, Tudu on Tuesday.

Reformers managed a comprehensive 82-56 win over Holy Family in the heaviest scoreline of day -one of the championship.

Coach of Holy Family, Samuel Kweku Jackson, couldn’t find the answers to the blitz of his opponent who played some scrumptious basketball at the facility which was donated by Thome Halim Cabalan twenty –five years ago.

It was an open day delight for Reformers who have began the championship on a positive note and clearly looking into the next games with so much optimism. The win has put them in a good stead in the championship as they get ready to take on subsequent opponent Warriors and Hoops in pool A.

Their next game is against Nima-based Warriors on Thursday while Holy Family battle Hoops in the other encounter.

Coach Abeiku Sagoe must be ruing the lost opportunity following Warriors’ sorry 48-52 defeat to Tema Youth in the other game in the group. It was a repeat of the scoreline in the Greater Accra series where the embattled Tema based side recorded the double over their opponent.

Both sides impressed in the series but it was the relegated side who had the last laugh following a final quarter surge at their counterpart.

Tema Youth have up until Saturday to play against one of the contenders for the title – Hoops while Warrior’s only rest day is on Wednesday before taken on Reformers in their second game.

If you’re oblivious of the news, then the Lebanon court at Tudu is the place to be from now till 20 August for the 2010 edition of the annual Thome Cabalan Championship.
