Knights celebrate win
Coldstore (Black) v Knights

Spintex Knights have recorded its maiden win in the Tema Community Basketball League at the third attempt over the weekend.

Knights sealed a 66-47 win over Akatsi Rifles in the last round of games played at the Tema Community 4 Court on Sunday, May 5.

Prior to the win, Knights had lost twice in two appearances in its debut season in the league. The team lost 46-47 to fellow newcomers Tema Wildcats.

In the second game, Spintex Knights’ poor first half showing punctuated by a flurry of turnovers cost the side a win falling 37-40 to defending league champions Nungua Coldstore.

The talent side missed several big names for the matchup against Rifles but the absences of the likes of Elvis Pobi-Siaw didn’t cost Knights a win.

The fixture also marked the return of veteran Guard Raymond Maha after missing out on the two games played prior. The loss is Rifles first in four games this season and ends the team’s winning streak.
