TUDU, ACCRA
- Tema Youth triumph again. They started the game without the coach who was away on an official assignment.
Coming into this game on top of the league table, Lebanon House was filled with fans who came to watch whether they could still maintain their lead. The game started quite slowly, especially for TY who were trying their best not to make too many mistakes in the absence of their coach. Teddy set things off for Holy Family with a couple of good open shot choices. HF took a quick 4-1 lead with about 4 minutes gone in the first. TY started by playing a lot of ball in the paint and drawing a good number of fouls which took them to the free throw line. But then TY made only 3 of the about 8 free throw opportunities they got. TY were able to quickly draw at 4 made only one more shot until the end of the first.Holy family took the first quarter with 9 points as against Tema Youth's 6.

Tema Youth were a little bit disorganized early in the second quarter. They just turned over too many times. But then they regrouped and played some well organized ball, their point guard took charge and they run their offensive plays better as compared to the first. They "picked and rolled" and "picked and popped out" creating a good spaces for teammates to hit open jumpers. Eventually even creating space for Enoch to hit a three pointer. Holy Family's big man, Gemain worked hard on both ends of the floor; grabbing rebounds and then taking a good number of trips to the hole.

The third quarter very low coring. Both teams managed to make only 6 points apiece. Tema Youth tried their best to stay in control of affairs despite their coach still not showing up. Holy family failed to make use of good opportunities and rather started complaining about bad officiating. Tema Youth coach then showed up in latter part of the third period.
Coach Attipoe of Holy family was eventually ejected from his bench for over complaining and misbehavior towards the match officials. Coach Attipoe after being ejected from his bench Coach Quaye of TY instructing his team

Coach Quaye of Tema youth quickly regrouped his troops they started producing at a wonderful rate. TY once again made very good use of the athleticism and jump. They simply took charge of the last quarter; grabbing rebounds on both ends of the floor. TY ended up beating HF 28 to 10 in the 4th.
All that can be said now is TY simply looks good but can they maintain their lead?
