DC Dynamics Captain Dennis Boateng laments his side’s 59-65 loss to Prisons Reformers over the weekend is a tough one for the team. The loss extended Dynamics winless run in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) 2016 season following a 50-52 loss to Teshie Rangers in the opening round.
Speaking to Bsketballghana.com, Boateng was disappointed with the outcome of the game particularly when Dynamics went into the second quarter with a healthy 20-4 lead. He said:
“The second loss is always a tough loss. We lost our first game we did our homework, we came back and things didn’t go out well for us. We had the game throughout the first three quarters but I think we blew our lead due to some lapses”
He also voiced his opinion on officiating in the game which attracted lots of attention.
“Officiating is just like anything else. We just expect consistency on both sides on offense, on defense. I think some calls went against us but anyway that’s the game so we take what we got”.
The exciting game which showcased brilliant ball movement from last season’s Division II Champions and great shooting from Reformers will be most remembered for the controversial calls made particularly in the latter stages of the fourth quarter.
David Maja was called for a travel violation in the post and Emmanuel Mensah was deemed to have fouled Reformers Andrew Ayienab when defending him close to the center circle which caused Dynamics Coach Feranmi Olulonyo to lash out at officials.
However, Reformers capitalized on Dynamics foul troubles to seal the win by converting shots from the free throw line.
