Assistant coach of Legon, David Bamfo Agyeman, has charged his age band of players to make their community proud by defying all odds to be triumphant at Community Dunks for the first time.

The host won their opening game against James Town last weekend- setting the tone for what is expected to be the most keenly contested championship in recent memory.

Bamfo Agyeman’s youngsters played some delectable basketball showing off their skills and zeal in front of their home crowd who kept their voices at bay during the opening game.

They won 25-16 to set their title ambition on a positive note but must now tackle Kaneshie in the final game of match day 2 on Saturday September 18 at the University of Ghana basketball court (18hrs GMT).

Agyeman, who has been directing affairs in the absence of substantive coach Emmanuel Wobil, who is recovering from an accident he suffered some weeks ago, wants the players the players to build an affirmative mental fortitude.

Their next game against Kaneshie will be pretty tough spanning from the fact that Sam Tagoe’s charges also negotiated their tie against highly fancied Ridge and so that place a lot of emphasis on the game.

But Bamfo Agyeman told basketballghana on Wednesday: ‘Kaneshie may have won against Ridge, but they will be no match for us on Saturday’. he said

‘We’ve not been given much chance in this year’s tournament and those who have ruled us out of the title race, will be chewing back their words’.

He added: ‘We’ve been training seriously after our first day of victory, still focused and ready to teach Kaneshie basketball lessons on Saturday’.
