Trio clinch first wins in 2018 Tema League season

Rifles (green and black) stormed to a win over Rockets.
Three teams clinched maiden wins in the 2018 Tema Basketball League season in the second week of games played at Tema’s Community 4 Court over the past weekend.

2016 League Champions Nungua Coldstore won its maiden game in the young season by beating Francophone Stars 50-48 after overtime.

Coldstore lost its league crown to Tema Community 4 last season but got the 2018 campaign off to a great start after getting past a standout Francophone side.

Teshie Vikings grabbed its share by topping Teshie Rangers 60-43 in the all Teshie matchup; the tie opened the latest round of games.

Vikings are making their debut in the Tema League; the team lost in the opening round against Francophone Stars.

Akatsi Rifles clinched its first win of the season by coming from behind to beat Tema Rockets 38-37 in what looked like an easy win for Rockets for long stretches in the game.

After losing to Community 4 in Week One, the late go ahead three point shot proved decisive in the win.
