Stars of Asha makes a return to the Handball court on Saturday, May 12 against Mawuko after their defeat to TERESCO on March 31.
Currently with no point and 3rd on the female table (due to the pull out of EPUC), the only community handball club will play 2nd place Mawuko Girls SHS at 12:00noon at the Ho Sports Stadium. The two sides have met twice in a Gala which preceded the maiden league in November, with SOA winning all.
Mawuko have however had much preparatory/ games in the past few months, winning the ultimate of the Central Zone Sports and successfully representing the zone in March. Their improvement can disturb their opponents, come tomorrow.
A win for either side will boost their chances of challenging TERESCO for the league title as the latter still lead with 6 points, awaiting the beginning of the second round.
Stars of Asha will however, play their last match in the first round against Mawuli and can secure points there.
Their male side will also engage Mawuli who were also champions of the central zone’s handball competition at 3:00pm but after Ho Technical University (HTU) lock horns with St Proper’s SHS (PROSCO) at 1:30pm.
Unlike the female category, SOA, HTU and PROSCO are all with 2 points each due to the withdrawal of SOSTECH and EPUC. Mawuli, who had a tough game with HTU last week but lost, will fight for their first 2 points as they come face to face with Stars of Asha.
As the league nears its first round, the executives of the Volta Regional Handball Association plan a Gala to select players for the national Sports Festival in July/August.
The Association also seeks sponsorship for the league and their participation at the National Sports Festival, as they anticipate doing better than their 3rd place achievement last year.
