The Accra Basketball League (ABL) Women's Division has opened on a flying note at the Lebanon House Court in Tudu as Fire Service beat Tudu Galaxy 48-27 in the opening game and Braves of Customs went past Ghana Navy 53-41 in the second and final matchup of the round.

Fire stunned league leaders Galaxy with a big win to kick start matters in the division after a near two week break since June 2. Fire Point Guard Carlyn Adjei converted one of two three point shots to bum her side's lead from 15-13 to 23-13 to end the first half.

New recruit and 2016 Ghana Basketball Awards High School Player of the Year winner Juliana Cudjoe started from the bench and made an immediate impact by scoring all three free throws after getting fouled on a three point attempt. She added another pair from the arc to stretch Fire's lead despite the efforts of Galaxy's Selina Quaye who found joy draining jump shots after posting up Fire defenders.

The next game had defending champions Braves of Customs capitalize on turnovers from Navy in the final quarter of the tie to peel away from the feisty opposing team whohad Point Guard Maria Mensah drill four three point shots.

Navy was able to hang around Braves through the first half trailing 9-12 at the end of the first quarter and seven at the end of the second quarter. However, late in the third quarter, Navy consistently gifted possession to Braves who exploited it to stretch the lead. Braves trio Anita Bonney, Belinda Tawiah and Center Gloria Gyampoh did the most lifting on the offensive end.

Both games were played out using the 24 seconds shot clock; the clock will be used throughout the second half of the season.
