Kenya Ports Authority continue to struggle in the Africa Champions Club for Women losing their second match 49-93 to two time champions Nigeria’s First Bank Monday at the indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium Lagos.

The 2010 Kenyan Basketball League Champions had lost their opening match of the six-team tournament by an equally big margin to the tournament defending champions Interclube from Angola 81-33 on Sunday.

No Kenyan player attained double digits with Evelyn Akoth’s 7 points which included one three-pointer- the highest against Interclube’s Vicente Tumba’s top score of 19.

KPA were totally outclassed yet again in their match against First Bank as their seasoned players failed to make a mark in both games.

Interclube led the first three quarters(23-07, 17-04, 26-07) before KPA managed to draw the last quarter 15-15.

KPA now lie fifth with two points ahead of Cameroon’s INJS with Interclube taking an early lead of the 17th edition of the Champions Club after defeating their fellow Angolan side debutantes Maculosso.
