Trainer of Ho Kpodzi D Basic School Girls Cricket team, Mawuli Emmanuel Afiademenyo has indicated to this reporter (TalksenseSports), their certainty of lifting the ultimate trophy of the Volta Region School’s U-12 Cricket League in Ho.
Ho Kpodzi Girls, who recorded a 100% winning record in Group A beating Housing, Anglican, Fiave EP and Methodist, will be battling United MA Girls from Group B, in the finals on Saturday, April 6 2019 at the Ho Sports Stadium at 9am.
Mawuli, who is a bit cautious about their opponents who also recorded 4 straight wins in their group games, believes his girls will carry the day.
“We’re playing a tough team whose trainer is much disciplined and well vested in the game. Both teams didn’t get to the finals by chance but through hard work. Believing in my girls, I am confident of a win. Our opponent is a tough side who’ll like to take advantage over a weak side. I am hoping to take at least 3 batters out so my team can capitalise on it and score more runs.”
Ho Kpodzi since the last group matches on March 23 has kept training awaiting the finals.
The 15 over single round robin league which begun on January 19 will also see Anglican Basic come face to face against Mawuli Basic in the boys’ finals.
Anglican, sailed through to the finals from Group A with 6 points after Methodist lost 2 games on a trot, having upper hand to qualify.
Mawuli Basic, with much exposure having former under 13 players, saw themselves in the finals after winning all their matches.
The league which will have officials from the Ghana Cricket Association present is expected to also see other dignitaries including the Sports Director, Kwame Amponfi Jnr grace the finals.
