Ghana Christian High International School (GCHIS) Male Basketball Team has won this year’s International Schools Association Games (ISSAG) Basketball and Field Hockey Tournament.
GCHIS topped Morgan International School 18-15 in an entertaining game in the Boys Division to win back to back titles in the tournament.
The Charles Adjei-Fodjour led team made a successful comeback after falling 0-6 in the opening minutes of the game played at Ghana International School (GIS) earlier today.
GCHIS’ strong recovery got the side trailing by three (6-9) at the end of the first half. GCHIS carried the momentum to the second half and blitzed Morgan early to establish a 14-10 lead.
Morgan went on a scoring run to tie the game at 14 before GCHIS made a couple of shots late in the game to pull away for the win. GCHIS beat SOS Herman Gmeiner 14-10 in the semifinals.
In the Girls Division, 2018 winners Akosombo International School missed the chance to replicate GCHIS’ success as the former lost 0-3 to SOS in the final game.
The competitive game was characterized by a lot of missed shots from both teams. Despite missing out on the top spots in basketball, host GIS placed first and third in Field Hockey’s Girls and Boys Divisions respectively.
