Tema Community 2 held the game’s lead against Nungua Coldstore in the final minutes of the 2019 BetWay Hoops Tournament but ended up on the losing end.

Community 2 lost 25-27 to miss out on winning the competition despite holding a 25-24 lead thanks to back to back baskets from Prince Owusu in the paint.

Coldstore Shooting Guard Emmanuel Wolff was left wide open out in the corner and hit an uncontested three point shot that moved Coldstore into a 27-25 lead.

Point Guard Kofi Attafuah had a chance to send the game to overtime after getting fouled on a drive to the basket. However, the crafty Guard missed both free throws handing the win to Coldstore.

Earlier in the second half, Richard Afedzie was ejected for dissent towards game officials but his replacement Owusu got his side back in the game and in the lead prior to the collapse down the stretch.

Community 2 placed fourth in last year’s Tema Community Basketball League.
