Community 12 falls short of win in gallant display

Reformers (green) easily wiped out C12 in a previous encounter.

Tema Community 12’s loss to Nungua Coldstore is to be honest quite expected in the 2017 Tema Basketball League regular season since the side is one of the poor performers in the campaign.

Coldstore are the defending champions,lead the standings in Group A and was expected to win the fixture without any fuss like it has done this season; a shock loss to Junior Reformers remains the sole blip on the team’s record.

However, C12’s performance over the weekend against Nungua was very commendable as the side lost 36-37 to Coldstore who were making their first appearance in the league after four weeks of inactivity.

Perhaps the long layoff affected the team’s play overall but credit must be given to the Community 12 for putting up a good fight despite having a poor record to show for its efforts.

The round of games had Community 2 beat Tema Heat to claim another win in a headline game after recording similar wins over Group B contenders Ghana Navy and Community 4.

Navy beat Akatsi Rifles 30-28 but Tema Community 5 failed to show up for its game against Junior Reformers of Prisons in Group A leading to the former earning two points and a 20-0 result for teh forfeiture.
