Third Quarter the Difference As Power Beat Rivals Warriors - May 18, 2016

Like Pemba Warriors coach Sam Obol said after, his side's game against Power may have come too early to have any serious implication. But if this was a measure of the strides made as both teams seek to regain their past glory that saw them dominate domestic basketball from 2008-2012, then Warriors are miles behind. "The defeat does really worry me because to me it was a case of failing to convert our shots," Obol stated just after his team were blown away 85-57 by their rivals at the Lugogo MTN Arena on Friday night. After matching their rivals for more than half of the game, the two-time champions Warriors imploded late in the third quarter and never recovered. They led 15-10 after the first quarter and trailed by two at the half-way stage before briefly taking a 51-49 lead with a Stephen Okiasi three pointer, then 02:51 was left on the third quarter. Power then went on a 13-0 run to close out the quarter and never looked back. "The defeat raises questions about our fitness. It is a reality check but we should be able to bounce back," added Obol. Joseph Ikong did most of the damage scoring a game high 21 points and Michael Makiadi 12 as Power's transitional game flourished. Isaac Afidra who made a surprise return to Power added 11 with Mark Opio and Phillip Ameny leading the Pemba Warriors. The pair made 19 and 12 points respectively with the latter adding 12 rebounds before being affected by a knee injury. "We adjusted well to defense and it motivated out offense. But I'll take win any way it comes. This was a win for our fans," Power's coach Brian Wathum noted.
