Opoku Ware School Point Guard Emmanuel “Ghost”Agyapong has been injured in the aftermath of the team’s game against Prempeh College in the Ashanti Regional Qualifiers for Sprite Ball Championship.

Emmanuel Agyapong was phenomenal in OWASS’ win.

The electrifying Guard was caught in a physical exchange involving some members of both teams after the game was halted for the second time in four days.

Following crowd trouble induced delays on Friday in the first game at Opoku Ware’s Court, the second game was moved to Toase Senior High School to neutralize the threat.

However, rain halted the game in the third quarter with Opoku Ware leading 24-21; the score was tied at 16 at the end of regulation time but overtime was abandoned due to poor visibility.

With the game abandoned due to rain, scuffles broke out involving players and some supporters which had Agyapong hurt his hand in the exchange.

His injury got attention immediately from staff and health workers at the venue before further treatment requiring extensive stitches were administered at the Community Hospital at Afari, a suburb of Toase.

A member of Opoku Ware’s winning team in last year, Agyapong will be counted on for his leadership, scoring amd playmaking skills.
