LABA/YBG/ Powerade Schools Basketball Championship…


Rain forces abandonment
– Matches on Today

By Joe Chapman
Rain has caused a delay in the conclusion of the Linden Amateur Basketball Association’s organized LABA/Youth Guyana basketball Guyana/ Powerade Linden Regional Under-19 basketball championship.

Initially set for yesterday, the final round of matches will be played today, weather permitting at the Mackenzie Hard Court.
The LABA plans to have the washed out Wisburg Secondary versus Mackenzie high school game on Saturday be played during the morning.

That will be followed by the Wisburg versus the Linden Technical Institute be played in the afternoon to determine the finishing order of the preliminary round play ahead of the semi-final set for tomorrow at the same venue.
Already through with the number one billing is the Linden Technical Institute but the other orders are determinant on the final round.

The only other game which will not disrupt the top four going through is the one between Harmony Secondary and Christianburg Wismar Secondary who are still to record a win in this year’s schools championship.
The LABA will seek permission from the Education Department of Upper Demerara/Kwakwani to have the first game played at 9.00hrs and the other at 14.30hrs.

The Christianburg Secondary versus Harmony Secondary game between the winless teams will not be played because it would not affect the placing of the top four teams.
The top team will face the number four side and the numbers two and three will collide in semi-final action.
