Goldengate Int’l College men’s team reached the final of the KCM Basketball Bash 2017 in the expense of Himalaya College.
Last year’s losing finalists, Goldengate once again reached the final with the defeat of Himalaya College at the first of the men’s semi-final Wednesday.
The match was delayed by torrential rain as well as the confusion over whether to postpone the match. Eventually the organisers gave the green signal for this match and with time short…the second semi-final between the hosts and SANN was postponed.
There wasn’t much between the two in the first two quarters….scores tied at 25 a piece at half-time. But Goldengate came back from the break and did most of the damage opening up a margin of 11 points.
Himalaya men tried to catch up in the fourth quarter but to no avail as Goldengate held on to their lead.
Final score: Goldengate 64-53 Himalaya (13-10, 12-15, 21-10, 18-18)
This is the second year running that Goldengate Int’l College have managed to reach the final in both the men’s and women’s category of the KCM Basketball Bash. Goldengate women’s team reached the final on Tuesday after defeating Xavier Int’l at the semis.
