Pemba Warriors continued their brilliant start to the 2017 National basketball league with yet another sound victory against fast fading Falcons.
Ronnie Mutebi’s charges did not find any challenge on Sunday as they cruised to an 81-52 victory against hapless Falcons at the Lugogo indoor stadium.

Pemba Warriors who came into the Sunday game on the back of an emphatic win against Betway Power on Friday, remain unbeaten in the league.

Whereas Warriors were cruising, defending champions City Oilers continued with their inconsistence succumbing to a 74-77 to Walker Obedi’s Ndejje University Angels.
Deng Maker and Otienno Michael scored 18 and 17 points respectively for the Angels.
This was Oiler’s third loss after just seven games.
Betway Power returned to winning ways in style scoring 19 points in the last quarter to come from behind and overturn the tables against Our Saviour.
