This year’s competition commenced earlier today with big wins for defending champions Osu-PRESEC in the Boys Division and Kumasi Girls Senior High School in the Girls Division.
POJOSS clinched a hard fought 39-31 win over Prempeh College in Group B which puts last year’s bronze medal winners-POJOSS- in a good position to qualify to the quarter finals.
A poor start harmed Prempeh’s chances of clinching the game’s win as the side trailed 6-14 early on in the first half.
The team fought back gallantly to reduce the deficit to six (17-23) at half time but couldn’t complete the comeback to lose the opening game.
Prempeh College must win its matchup against West Africa Senior High School to have a chance of progressing to the next stage.
On the other hand, St. Louis completed the comeback against two time silver medalist Accra Wesley Girls High School with a 13-11 win after trailing 3-5 at half time.
