Nam Blazers Pull One Over City Oilers To Level The Series

It is a very hard bargain for City Oilers to have back to back wins. They usually come back stronger after having a bad game and in this case their opponents have to sweat to win.

Over the years, the Oilers have set a certain bar which the didn’t really live up to in the opener. However, the defending champions were going to follow it up with an improved performance.

I’m game 2, the Oilers played real City Oilers basketball in most parts of the first half winning the first quarter 17-14. In the second quarter, they were able to open a double digit lead but the Nam Blazers cut that to go into halftime trailing only by 2, 33-31.

Waves started to shift in the third quarter when the oilers lost control over the game giving their opponents a chance to lead 51-49.

The fourth quarter then begun with the Nam Blazers scoring 5 unanswered points forcing an Oiler’s timeout. When they returned Namuwongo’s Amisi Saidi hit a jumper for a 9-point lead before Oilers got on the board in the quarter.

With two minutes to play in the fourth, Deng and Saidi heated up at the right time with Daniel Minoja’s 6 points coming in handy. At this point, the game had Blazers win and series knotted written all over.

Chris Omanye contributed 8 points to go with 9 rebounds and 4 assists in the win while Ariel Okall picked game-high 13 rebounds and contributed 6 points.

Azolibe (16 points & 10 rebounds) and Mer Maker (14 points & 10 rebounds) had double-doubles in a losing effort. Davis Siagi and Tony Drileba had 8 points each. Game 3 of the series will be played on Sunday at Lugogo.
