The grand party was staged at the Fiesta Royale Hotel in Accra lasting late into the Ghanaian capital’s night following the win.
Akatsi Rifles piped Tema Rockets 38-37 in one of four games played in the second week of the 2018 season over the past weekend.
Rilfes looked down and out of the tie with the side trailing 13-23 at the end of the first half but an improved second half display changed the game’s outcome.
After reducing the deficit to five points (28-33) heading to the final quarter, Rifles capitalized on slack play from Rockets to score a three point shot to take the game’s lead and win.
Shooting Guard MacBeth Comey was the hero of the day as he calmly drilled a deep shot beyond the arc on the game’s final possession.
Seeing how gallant the players fought, Rifles Patron Dr.Mesrome Senyo treated the team at the plush hotel.
