The enthusiasm of the Greater Accra Handball League bounces back after a week break for the GAHA cup.
This week’s matches spans from Tuesday, October 16 to Thursday, October 18, away from the usual (Wednesday to Saturday), as the President of the Association, Paul Kofi Yesu Dadzie bids farewell to his late Dad in the Brong Ahafo region.
Airforce versus El-Wak Wings will become the second outstanding game to play in the league after Legonite and Fire’s week 18 fixture, as Tuesday 2 pm tie at the Burma camp has been postponed. Air Force, having suffered from Army in their previous match will be having a leapfrog plan for El Wak Wings from the 9th position on the men table till they honour the match.
Meanwhile, bottom side Lekma will welcome 3rd spot Fire to the Teshie Mats court at 3 pm on Tuesday.
Police, after their mixed results in the GAHA Cup final on Saturday, return to the court against Hostac at the Burma camp on Wednesday at 2 pm. Hostac, lying in the lower part of the mid-table will be having a huge game on their hands as Police male chase Prisons for the top spot.
Concurrently, Prisons will host Reniijoe at the Prisons Complex. Prisons cannot afford to lose, as Reniijoe have been unimpressive this season and especially when there is a chase for the title.
The final lap of the matches sees Army battle Asomdwe at the Burma camp at 3 pm, with Cantonment Youth taking their turn against Legonite at 2 pm at the Prisons Complex. Cantonment Youth, whose good run in the second round was stopped by Fire in week 19, would fight for redemption as their women, 3rd on the table, kept their good record intact with a win against Fire.
Army, 6th with 19 points, will be motivated by their previous victory but against an Asomdwe side (16 points behind Army) who doesn’t want to give up.
With few matches to go and with winners of the GAHA Cup known, the chase for the league trophy grows wilder with Cantonment Youth, Fire, Police and Prisons, all in good positions to grab the ultimate.
