Delta Force slumped to their first defeat at the ongoing Women Basketball League National Final 8 with a 42-67 points loss to First Bank.
Delta Force tried all they could against First Bank but their offensive prowess was put under check from the determined First Bank players who had a total of 25 defensive rebounds.
Okoro Ifunanya with 14 points, six assists and four rebounds and Regina Iornumbe with 14 points provided the platform on which the Elephant Girls built their success.
In the second game of the day, which was a local derby between two Abuja based sides, Air Warriors defeated Black Gold Queens 87 to 58 points.
The scoreline did not reflect the stiff competition between the two sides due to the wastefulness of Black Gold ladies inside their opponent’s paint.
Experienced Blessing Kasham was the highest scorer for the Warriors with 31 points, seven rebounds and two assists.
As expected, the game between MFM and Dolphins went down to the wire, which was decided in the last few seconds of the game.
At the end of the third game of Match Day 2 at the ongoing 2019 Women Basketball League National Final 8, Dolphins won 56 to 51 points in what seems to be a revenge following their bitter one point loss at the conference phase in Ibadan.
With the victory, Dolphins have won their second game on the trot as MFM continues the search for their first win of the 2019 Women Basketball League National Final 8.
Gbihi Cynthia once again came through for Dolphins with 17 points, two rebounds and three assists.
Odiowei Susan managed 10 points and one rebound for MFM, which was not enough to secure a win.
It was a blow out for Custom as they recorded 69 to 34 points victory over Plateau Rocks in the last match of the day.
Joseth Anaswem was the man of the match with 15 points, three rebounds and three assists.
In group A, Plateau Rocks will come up against First Bank who are yet to lose a game, while Customs face Delta Force.
In group B, Black Gold and MFM Queens will clash as both teams search for their first win of the competition while Dolphins will play Air Warriors in a match that will decide the group leader.
