Tema Youth continued their quest to defend their crown in the Cabalan Thomme championship with a 66-59 victory over Sakumono-Panthers on Tuesday.

It was end-to-end action for both teams as they tried to capitalize on the mistakes of their opponent to punish them.

Youth rallied to a healthy 20-14 in the first quarter and never lost their guard as they kept their composure and focus to hold onto their verve to win by a seven-point margin.

With Bongo dictating the pace from the centre of the court, it was always going to be a daunting task for Panthers to catch them on the break.

Tried as Jake Morrison and Ferrani Olulonyo did to salvage the situation, they fluffed their lines to lose  third game in group A.

The results means, Tema Youth have sealed their qualification to the semi-finals.
