The cliffhanger on the day was the basketball women game between UCC and UG considering the fact that they played second and first respectively in the last GUSA games hosted by UCC. They are the two most outstanding teams at the ongoing 24th GUSA games in UEW and a win for either side would be a step closer to the gold medal.
The white and red women from the University of choice took the game to the women in blue and yellow from the premier university right from the blast of the whistle and led 24:12 at the end of the first quarter.
The women from UG tried to regroup but nothing worked for them and UCC grew in confidence as they took total control of the game without removing their legs on the paddle and really suffocated their opponent till the end of the game as UCC won by 53 :35.
In soccer men, impressive UDS came face to face with the defending champions and current leaders, UCC who so far won all their four games during regulation time and also yet to concede despite the fact that they lost their number one goalie to injury during the second game against the host, University of Education, Winneba.
It was a very tight game since the two sides decided to play with caution.
Some few chances were created in the first half but both sides failed to utilized them to their advantage till the half ended goaless.
Both teams came into the second half with the intention of getting an early goal to unsettle their opponent but as usual, they were both very profligate on the day till the referee brought proceedings to an.
UCC won 8:7 on penalties to top the table with 14 points and still yet to concede a goal in the competition.
