Later today at the Prisons Court in Cantonments, Ghana Fire Service takes on Adenta Leopards in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men’s Division I to determine the winner of the third place spot in the 2021 Season.
The matchup is due to tip off at 16:30 GMT in the immediate aftermath of Game 2 of the Women’s Division Final between Ghana Police Service and Reformers of Prisons; Reformers topped Police 68-56 in Game One.
Fire beat Tema Youth 74-64 to clinch third place in the 2019 league season in the Women’s and Men’s Divisions respectively but the 2020 season was lost to the COVID 19 pandemic.
Despite a solid run in this year’s Regular Season, Fire missed out on progressing to the final after losing 46-63 to Reformers of Prisons a couple of weeks back.
Like Fire Service, Leopards consolation for missing out on a second league final in a row lies in bagging third place in the league. The team lost 44-59 to defending league champs Braves of Customs.
