Gulu - Northern Uganda
MATCH DAY Two
Match commenced exactly 13:18 hours with a quick basketball from Gulu who won the first possession on the tip off. KCCA respond instantly making most predict it would be a dog-eat-dog affair. But no! Gulu seemed to have bitter memories of last year’s encounter at Ntare School sighting controversial refereeing and came ready to avoid another slip. The dirt court surfaces did not permit fluidity in movement but the Northern side still attacked the opponent’s hoop in succession ending quarter One 12-6. The referee makes three (3) successive poor calls amidst caution from Gulu coach at the close of First Quarter each time being ignored. A little confrontation ensured between Gulu coach and the infamous referee responsible for last year’s shortcomings. Second quarter resumes and the referee becomes vigilant paying attention to most actions on court and starting making better decisions that both coaches never complained about anymore.
Gulu dominated the second quarter 15-04. Third 04-04 and Fourth quarter 06-06 was however a little tight because the City Lads played stronger defense and mad a few successful baskets.
Ultimately, match ends 37-19. Gulu Wheelchair Basketball Club registers first championship in the Betway donated Blue Jerseys.
Match result: Gulu 37-19 Kampala.
