– Kobra beat Royals in Group B round-robin action
Defending champions Bounty Colts, Plaisance Guardians and Kobras were victorious as action in the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation’s (GABF) National Club Championship dubbed ‘Road to Mecca V’ continued on Saturday night at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH) with three lively matches.
The opening fixture saw the lone Berbice representative in the 12-team competition, Canje knights, being defeated by Guardians 87-68.
The 2016 and 2017 National Champions, Bounty Colts, demolished Raiders 87-63, while in the feature game Kobras trounced Royals 73-55.
The Georgetown based Kobras team who finished third last year showed great ability to achieve a convincing victory against the Linden Champions, while Colts’ victory was nothing less than was expected from the club who have won virtually everything for the past two years.
The East Coast Demerara based Guardians team got a much needed victory after a couple of poor performances to hand Knights their second loss in as many games.
Four more games were contested last night with those fixtures being Kobras versus Pacesetters, Republic Bank Nets against Jets out of Linden, Colts versus Knights, while the feature game contested was Ravens battling Half Mile Bulls. The results of those game will be featured in tomorrow’s issue of Kaieteur Sport.
Mecca V will feature play again this Wednesday.
There is over $2million in Prize money up for grabs with the grand cash prize of $600,000 to be received by the Champions when the competition concludes on April 28th, the runners up will pocket $400,000, while 3rd place will receive $200,000.
