Riham Warriors 83-87 Falcons (Falcons win series 3-1)
Dmark Power 68-72 City Oilers (Oilers win series 3-1)
Not many of us saw this coming after City Oilers going down quite easily in the first game against Dmark Power. The response to that loss has been winning three successive games to clinch a spot in the finals in their first season in the premier division like they did in the lower divisions.
Arou Ramadhani scored team high 17 points and picked 10 rebounds as City Oilers beat Dmark Power 72-68 at the MTN Arena. Jimmy Enabu added 15 points including a free throw with a second to the buzzer that put the game out of Power’s reach. Kami Kabange contributed 9 points, hauled in 15 rebounds and blocked 2 shots.
After a promising start from Power, the five-time champions were limited to 7 points in the second quarter as Oilers took control of the game. Former MVP Ben Komakech fought valiantly throughout, trying to keep Power in the game with a flurry of threes piling up game high 29 points but got no significant contribution from the teammates and had his big night in a losing effort. Paul Odong added 18 points and no other power scored more than 5 points.
City Oilers will face the six time champions – Falcons who held on to beat Riham Warriors 87-83 in the first game of the evening. Steven Omony stellar post season continued as the forward netted game high 22 points and picked 7rebounds to lead the way for Falcons.
Abdulahi ‘dulah’ Ramadhani added 19. Serge Kabangu who has been big in that key since returning in game two chipped in with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Philip Ameny contributed 10 points and 8 boards.
Ronnie Kasewu paced Warriors with playoffs high 20 points and 9rebounds. Jude Ochen added 19 points including a 3-pointer that brought Warriors within 82-83 with 30 seconds before Steven ‘Duxx’ Tumwesigye’s free throws dumped Warriors. Henry Malinga contributed 17 points and picked 8 rebounds. Sam Gombya game high 15 rebounds went along with 9 points.
