- KPA 108-35 Gondar
Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) didn’t need the services of Desmond Owily as they eased past Gondar City with a 108-35 win in their opening game of the 2017 Zone V Club Championship in Kampala.
The former UCU Canons center is yet to be cleared by FIBA but was barely missed as Ariel Okal, Ramadan Arou and the rest of KPA cruised.
Gonder scored the first six points of the game but only added two to end the quarter with a meager 8 against KPA’s 28.
The second quarter was even worse for Gonder as they only managed only 3 points to trail 11-61 at half time.
Former City Oilers’ forward Arou scored a game high 18 points while Antony Matongolo and Okal had 17 and 15 points respectively.
Arou registered a double-double with 10 rebounds to accompany the 18 points while Samuel Ochola picked 11 boards.
For Gondar City, only Lionel Mena, with 10 points, clocked double figures on the score chart. Reat Tut had 2 points and 10 rebounds as Gondar were subjected to rough start by the Kenyan giants.
Both Gondar and KPA will have to face Betway Power as they are pooled together in Group B.
