City Oilers 81-34 Falcons
YMCA Outdoor Court, Wandegeya

The difference between City Oilers and Falcons on Wednesday was evident. It was as clear as day and night.

The defending champions had a field day and a walk in the park against the newly promoted Falcons at the YMCA Outdoor court.

Whereas City Oilers were close to perfection, on the other hand struggled at either end of the court.

In the end, the six time winners managed to win the game 81-34 to register their second win of the season. They beat up Power in the season opener.

Right from onset, City Oilers looked the outright favorites to win… taking a 21-5 lead in the first quarter.

By the time the two teams went for the long break, City Oilers had opened a 17 point gap.

They added 25 and 24 points in the third and fourth quarter respectively while limiting Falcons to only 19 points in the last two periods.

Falcons looked awful on shooting managing 12-57 on their field attempts and could only get two of their 21 attempts beyond the three point arc.

At one time, City Oilers turned the game into a showboating display with Tonny Drilleba and Nigerian Francis Chisoke Azolibe going for slum dunks to the delight of the fans.

Drilleba had a game high 21 points while Landry Ndikumana and youngster Ivan Muhwezi added 14 and 13 points respectively for City Oilers.

Falcons on the other hand had Henry Mbazira and Dickson Asiku posting 13 and 11 points respectively.
