The battle for honours at the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League second phase has thrown up surprises as Sunshine Angels defeated First Bank 51-44 points to throw the Atlantic Conference open.

The game played at the Indoor Sports Hall of the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba, Delta State saw the first quarter started with First Bank leading 14-10 while the second quarter ended 10-10 with the leader maintaining their four points lead.

Sunshine took the bull by the horn from the third quarter winning it 15-8 points before sealing the win with 13-12 points in the final quarter to secure their first win of the phase.

On the opening day, Sunshine lost 58-45 points to MFM of Lagos while First Bank defeated IGP Queens 70-49 points.

Meanwhile, finalists of the last Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League, MFM of Lagos, yesterday won their second match, beating Dolphins 52-45 points to increase their chances of getting one of the two tickets from the conference.

They will be facing First Bank who suffered their first loss of the Conference on Wednesday in the final game of Day 3 today.

On the other hand, Dolphins failed to make the finals in Lagos later in the month after losing their first two games of the ongoing conference.

The 2015 winners of the league won just one game out of five in the First Phase and now lost two of the Second Phase with three games to play in the current phase.
