Fire Service has called the bluff of Tema Youth Forward McMartey Lawer by delivering a stunning 87-83 win over Tema in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I latest round of games that took place at the Lebanon House Court.
Lawer , in an interview with Basketballghana.com stated his side was going to win all games this season but in its fourth game of the current campaign, Youth lost.
Tema was on a three game winning run at the time he made the statement; the side had recorded impressive wins including an epic 84-78 win over defending league champions Braves of Customs.
The tie was billed as a battle of the unbeaten’s as neither had recorded a loss this year and were the only two sides with that record; by virtue of the close win, Fire is the only side in the division to maintain the run.
Tudu Magic compounded the woes of Adenta Leopards with a 52-43 win over the division’s new boys in the second game of the round.
