In the final game, Tema Wildcats put its 30-36 loss to Tema Community 4 in the previous round to clinch a 36-31 win over Akatsi Rifles.

The exciting matchup had the young Wildcats match Rifles intensity and size to overcome a first half 13-17 deficit to seal the win on the back of an impressive shooting performance three point range.

All four games were played at the Tema Community 4 Court earlier today.
