Moffat with ball

The fifth day of competition in the CAP 7 Memorial Basketball Tournament had a pair of exhilarating games played out at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu earlier tonight.

In the Men’s Division, Tudu Galaxy lost 30-34 to Navy Warriors in a very closely fought contest that had the game’s lead change several times.

It was pretty much the same in the Women’s Division game between Galaxy and Ghana Fire Service which ended in a 38-34 win for Tudu.

This is Galaxy’s first win in the tournament after falling 21-35 to Ghana Police Service in its first game. Fire on the other hand, has lost twice in two games.

The score at the end of the first quarter was tied at 13 as Galaxy battled back from a 6-13 deficit early on in the matchup.

The second quarter ended in a 23-22 lead for Galaxy as Nafisa Iddrissu missed the chance to tie the score as she converted one of two free throws in the final act of the first half.

Galaxy got off to a quick start in the third quarter to take a 29-23 lead but Fire trimmed the deficit to a point (30-31) with 3:12 remaining after a three point shot from Iddrissu.

Naa Shika Moffat extended Galaxy’s lead on a layup after grabbing her offensive rebound. Maria Mensah drained a big three point shot. Fire scored two quick shots but run out of time to fall 34-38 to Galaxy.
