2019 Tema League Champs Coldstore

Nungua Coldstore has recorded another big win over Tema Rockets in the semifinals series of the Tema Community Basketball League Playoffs.

Coldstore beat Rockets 56-38 earlier tonight at the Tema Community 4 Court in Game 3 of the series to progress to the finals. The team is scheduled to play Spintex Knights in a fortnight at the same venue.

Defending Champions Coldstore won the series (2-1) after overcoming a 42-46 loss in Game One to score a dominant 71-43 win in Game 2.

The early exchanges highlighted Nungua’s depth of scorers as Emmanuel Wolff, Joel Tham, Kwaku Arhin Twene scored for the team with Rockets Center Baba Ibrahim bagging a pair of jumpers and Enoch Borsah hitting a three point shot.

The highlight moment early on in the game came via a strong dunk inside the paint from Coldstore Forward Kwame Boamah Djan who got fouled in the process.

A pair of three point shots from Emmanuel Wolff and one from Jonathan Walker in the second quarter put Nungua ahead 38-16 and set the team up for the big win.

Rockets didn’t help matters by turning the ball over on multiple occasions and giving up offensive rebounds to Coldstore.
