TANZANIA : Jogoo Lose Again to Savio

JOGOO suffered their second successive defeat at the hands of classy Savio in the ongoing Ilala District basketball league. Savio claimed a 68-58 win in the league's second leg match played on Monday evening at Don Bosco ground in Dar es Salaam.
Savio humbled Jogoo 82-75 in the first leg tie at Zanaki Secondary School ground. The win means a lot to Savio, who lost a match to Vijana 'City Bulls' in the first leg of the six-team tournament that winds up on Saturday.
The mighty Savio started very well and led 19-10 in the first quarter, but were down to 13-19 in the second to allow Jogoo to close the gap to 32-29 at the breather.
Savio added 15 points against Jogoo's seven in the third quarter and sealed the score with 21-22 in the final quarter. Mohamed Yusuph scored 14 points, while Amini Mtambo and Romanus Annania added six each.
But it was Jogoo's Haruna Saringo who counted more points -- 21 -- which were, however, not enough to help his team revenge the first leg defeat.
Stephen Mshana and Kayumba Maregesi hit 15 and 10 points respectively. Vijana 'City Bulls' had to fight hard to record a 49- 48 win over Magone in a closely contested match.
The game was totally different to that of the first leg which last year's Tanzania representatives to the FIBA Africa Zone Five basketball championship Vijana easily won 104-73.
This time around, underdogs Magone went head to head against Vijana before losing narrowly with a point adrift.
