Basketball: Power Cruise Past Wretched Falcons

A few years ago, adiposity games between Power and Falcons were a crowd puller. On game day, arenas would be filled to capacity and the intensity of the game would blow off the roofs.

Fast forward, the current state of Falcons basketball team is disappointing. For a team that signed a huge sponsorship deal with pay TV company star times last season is now struggling and could be headed for relegation.

After struggling in the first round winning just two games in eleven, Falcons tipped off their second round with a heavy defeat to Power on Wednesday at the Lugogo indoor stadium.

Power sought redemption after losing to Pemba Warriors last Friday by easing past wretched falcons 75-44 in an empty indoor stadium. Power took the first quarter 20-08 before claiming the second quarter 23- 12 to take a convincing 43-20 halftime lead.
Power completed the rout after recess to win 75- 44.

Mike Makiadi registered a game high 22 points while team captain Joseph Ikong fetched in 13 points for Power. Francis Karoro had 14 points, a team high for Falcons.

The result means Tiger head power maintain their second position on the log on 23 points one behind leaders City Oilers while Falcons lie 10th on 14 points, two above rock bottom placed charging Rhinos.

In the women’s game played, KCCA overcame a stubborn Nkumba Lady Marines 65-57 to maintain top spot in the women’s division. Martha Soigi who came towards the end of the second round scored a double double (17 points and 14 rebounds) to stretch their run this season to 10-1. Marines’ Brenda Ekon had a game high 26 points.
