After recording a maiden win in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Women’s division, Fire Service heads to the second round of the season with renewed vigor. The team is set to take on Galaxy later today at the Prisons Court in Cantonments right after home side Reformers of Prisons duels Air Force in the opening game.
The start of the second round finds Fire Service brimming with confidence following a deserved 46-40 win over Navy. Though Navy holds a winless record in the league, Fire showed immense growth in the game.
All through the first round, Assistant Coach Lawrence Nortey complained his side lacked a strong push to close out games. However, the opposite happened, as Fire began to pick up steam towards the end of the first round culminating in a win over Navy.
Tweaking the side’s play by moving Carlyn Adjei to Shooting Guard and playing Nora Asamoah at the point position, has given the mercurial Guard freedom to gun away without hurting the team. Playing Adjei as Point Guard fails to get the best out of her as she has the responsibility to get others involved in offense.
The team will have its hands full when they take on the athletic and bigger Galaxy side.
