Air Force win puts the side back in second place behind division leaders Braves of Customs in the standings. Playing against the winless Navy was never a daunting and the side proved this rightly by dominating for long stretches in the game.
Air Force destructive trio of Annabel Dsane, Grace Yinamyah and Memuna Mumuni aging delivered for the side as they combined on both ends of the court to secure the win. Their combination was necessary to fizzle out Navy’s strong finish.
