The heat is bubbling up ahead of the 3rd edition of the Eastern regional qualifiers of the 2012 Milo Junior Ball at Koforidua on Saturday.

Preparations towards the big game at the main basketball court of the Koforidua Secondary Technical School has reached a fever pitch with serious training among the participating schools.

Over sixteen schools have confirmed their quest to play in the prestigious competition for the second year in a row with an eye to unseat champions Anglican Junior High School top of the agenda.

The major threat to the Betom-based school will be their sworn-rivals Roman Catholic whom they beat back-to-back at the finals last year at the same venue.

But the dyanmics and the permutations are different this term with most of the teams putting in better preparations than they did in their debut season.

Fans favourite and St Dominic’super star Joseph Keteu has to watch in frustration as his side lost their semi-final battle against team Anglican.

Make no mistake, the 14 year old remains a key man in the St Dominic set-up withe championship just days away.

He has been indispensible for the boys in green and will prove their biggest asset on February as they chase the title and the right to represent the region in the grand finale on April 13, 2012 at the El-Wak stadium.

But St Dominic will be watching with key interest the exploits of Pentecost, Seventh Day Adventist, Roman Catholic and Kovoc.

The battle lines have been drawn and the quest for supremacy and revenge will highlight the weekend’s big fixtures in the Eastern coast of Ghana.

You cannot afford to miss every move, drill and skills on the court.
