Akatsi Rifles celebrated its first win of the 2018 Tema Basketball League season in style by throwing a buffet party for team members.
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.
