City Oilers vs Betway Power

Not so many people gave Betway Power a chance against defending champions City Oilers when the two sides made the finals.

Majority of the basketball enthusiasts expected a sweep or an easy ride for City Oilers against Power.

However, http://covintec.cl/wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php the first two games in the best of seven series have proved Betway Power have what it takes to challenge City Oilers for the 2016 title.

After a 78-76 loss in the first game, http://colombiareports.com/wp-includes/class-wp-simplepie-sanitize-kses.php Arnold Lando’s side seemed to have rectified on the mistakes and went ahead to claim the second game 62-54.

The two sides clash in game three on Wednesday at MTN Arena, Lugogo seemingly on the same footing.

Mande Juruni’s charges have struggled in the opening two games including game one which they won.

Kami Kabungu, Landry Ndikumana and Jimmy Enabu have not played to their best ability and will be expected to rise to the occasion in game three.

Power on the other hand have played as a unit with most of the players raising to the occasion.

Joseph Ikong the backbone of the team was sublime in game one despite losing while Paul “McaGayver” Odong was in high spirits in game two scoring 15 points.

Isaac Afidra, Brian Odur, Mike Makiadi and Michael Kojjo have also played an integral role.
