2018 Tema Community Basketball League Champions Nungua Coldstore was far from excellent in its maiden win of the 2019 season over Teshie Vikings.

Nungua clinched a 49-36 win over Vikings on Sunday, March 24 to close out the opening round of the new campaign. Three fixtures were honoured prior to Coldstore’s straightforward win.

Coldstore led 16-11 against Vikings after the first quarter on the back of Emmanuel Wolff’s trio of three point shots. Vikings stayed in contention with points coming from several members of the team including Forward Ekow Abaidor.

A neat interchange of play got Coldstore Forward Gerald Sappor open for a layup to end proceedings in the first half with Nungua leading 22-19.

Nungua Coldstore got crucial baskets late to lead the third quarter after a strong Vikings performance early in the quarter got the Teshie side trailing by a point (26-27).

Coldstore missed a host of players for the contest including Guards Jonathan Walker and Kontor Appiah.
Point Guard Kingsley Quist missed the game for Vikings.
