Akatsi Rifles will play against Tema Heat in the 2019 Tema Community Basketball League games on Sunday, November 3 at Tema’s Community 4 Court.
The big matchup takes places exactly a week after Rifles bagged an easy win over Teshie Rangers in the previous round at the same venue.
Rifles won 20-0 after Rangers failed to show up for the matchup; it was Rangers second loss via forfeiture in a row and signs point to the team giving up on a lost season.
On the other hand, Rifles are in a tough battle to make the playoffs this season as the team ranks eighth in the 12 team standings with 25 points.
Akatsi and four other teams including Heat are just a loss from dropping into the bottom three once the upcoming league games are honoured.
Heat is a point and position better off than Rifles and the matchup is the second of four games arranged for the weekend in the league that has Tema Community 2 taking on defending champions Nungua Coldstore.
