Like one of the fans put it, 'Yessssss, revenge is a meal best served cold.' Pemba Warriors inflicted another 72:68 loss to City Oilers in the big game on Friday night at the YMCA court in Wandegeya. Starting off the blocks so slowly, Warriors looked to play catch up from the starting whistle, and most of the first quarter saw City Oilers run rampage with a 13-7 scoreline to finish the first quarter on top. But the second quarter was a different ball game with Warriors coach Sam Obol outclassing his counter part Mandy Juruni with good rotation of his players. Mixing the new and the old guards helped Warriors put on a good display to claw their way back with an 18-12 scoreline in the second quarter, thus drawing the first half of the game 25 points a piece, and thus paving way for a scintillating second half. Most of these big games are usually won in the third quarter, and both teams squared off convincingly, cancelling each other in the best way possible. Warriors Obol had a masterclass rotation of his squad to peg down a very focused City Oilers. Both teams had a good display in this quarter, but it was Warriors that emerged on top with a 22-18 scoreline, with the scoreboard reading Warriors 47-43 City Oilers. This scoreline paved way for another good fourth quarter, one that Juruni had always mastered. When these teams met in the first half of the season, the game had to be won in the over time, and this is where this game looked to be heading. Warriors this time round looked so focused to see this game end in regular time and that is what transpired. Both teams again rallied to get this win, but Warriors didn't allow Oilers get ahead of them in points. The game changer was when Warriors Jude Ochieng sank in that big 3 pointer that brought YMCA down. The last quarter ended with both teams putting on 25 points apiece, with the game ending 72-68. Even without starting in the first five, Kami Kabange (201-F/C) had the highest score for Oilers with 19 points, with only Ndikumana Landry the other Oilers player in double figures with 11 points. It was a field day for Warriors players Cyrus Kiviri, Philip Ameny, and Mark Opio who put on 20, 17, and 15 points respectively.
