REFORMERS THRIVE, GALAXY FALLS TO BRAVES - May 24, 2016

Reformers of Prisons made a perfect comeback following a 22-28 loss to Galaxy Ladies by beating Navy 51-43 in Week Three of the Accra Basketball League (ABL). The game which played at the Lebanon House in Tudu in Ghana's capital, Accra, had Reformers head into the third quarter with a 22-17 lead. Navy threatened to erase the deficit with a strong showing in the opening minutes as Point Guard Marian Mensah scored successive layups. Navy's run was halted with the introduction of Promise Ofori and Elizabeth Atobrah as the pair combined for the team's 29 points in the second half.
The final game of the day had Braves of Customs take on Galaxy with both teams registering no loss in the league thus far. Braves started out slowly as the team found it difficult to compete with the taller Galaxy side and unsurprisingly fell 6-11 in the first quarter. Galaxy's Naa Shika Moffat had a field day gobbling rebounds. The introduction of bigs Gloria Gyampoh and Matilda Gordon changed the scope of the game as Braves began to find more joy and points in the post. Gordon and Gyampoh's strong post attracted lots of attention from Galaxy who in turn got punished on the perimeter by Braves Guards Grace Doe and Afia Agyeman.
Braves will take on Navy as Galaxy play University of Ghana in what will be the latter's debut game in the season.
