Power Failure Obstructs LBA Night Game
Power failure has interrupted the smooth continuation of the national league of the Liberia Basketball Association (LBA).
On Monday, games between Supreme Brothers and D-Rockas were abruptly called-off after the only generator supplying the Sports Commission developed a mechanical fault at the end of the last quarter.The score was 49 apiece with Supreme having made a three-point basket good. The C/Deltas and Commissioners match was also postponed. Earlier, Harbel Pointers lost to Fiamah United Brothers (FUBBA) by 39 to 44 points.
Over the past week, Ducor Magic defeated Uhuru Prince 86 to 80 points in an early kickoff but power failure again prevented the SOS Trotters and Commissioners game from taking place.
LBA Secretary General Allen Goodrich Wednesday told sports reporters that the game will be replayed but didn’t say whether it will start with the five minutes extra time. He said the problem of power failure was beyond their control.
“We have been doing everything to ensure that we play our leagues at night. We service the generator daily and we even bought new spare parts, but we don’t know why things are happened this way,” he said. The association has been running its league with a single generator.
Meanwhile, the LBA said its first phase will hopefully end over the weekend.blog comments powered by Disqus
