Kenya Ports Authority teams were beaten in their crucial men and women's Kenya Basketball Federation Premier League play-offs final Game Three matches by their respective hosts at Nyayo National Stadium Gymnasium on Saturday. KPA men's team chances of recapturing the league championship in a clean sweep went up in smoke when red-hot hosts Co-op Bank defeated them hands down 79-57 in Game Three of the best-of-five series. The dock men had easily won Game One and Two in Mombasa and only needed the third consecutive win to be declared the new Premier League champions. Game Four will be held today at Nyayo. Co-op Bank are already motivated and another victory in Game Four will lock the series 2-2.
Co-op Bank, who train at the Nyayo court took KPA head-on through James Mwangi (198-PF-89), Job Bryron, Fred Odongo (196-F-78) to lead 19-12 in the first quarter. KPA head coach Anthony Ojukwu and Sammy Kiki opted to rotate players, a strategy which saw the coastal team threaten their hosts. Co-op Bank led 35-29 at half-time. Co-op Bank run riot with little known William Sharnupi, Job Bryron and Titus Musembi outscoring their opponents to built a 15 points difference at 45-33 in the third quarter. It was James Khaemba, Byron and Felix Odhiambo, who carried the day for Co-op Bank as they went 22 points clear at the final whistle. Felix Odhiambo scored 14 points, William Sharnupi hit 12 while James Mwangi and Job Byron each added 10 for the winners. Evans Leting was the only KPA players who scored in double figures with 10 points. Co-op Bank coach Carey Oketch said: "We are still one game down 2-1 and their is nothing to celebrate until we force a 2-2 tie tomorrow to throw the title wide open." "We had a bad day and played poorly in offense and defence making it difficult to win. We need to correct the mistakes to win Game Four to be declared champions," KPA head coach Anthony Ojukwu said. Equity Bank rallied from behind to deny KPA victory in the last one minute nine seconds left. KPA, who led 24-18 at the break, had Betty Kananu's three-pointer locking the exciting duel 52-52 in the last 26 seconds. International Hilda Indasi was fouled by Celine Okumu in the dying seconds. Indasi hit the two winning free-shots as Equity Bank players and fans broke in celebration with a 54-52 victory.
