D-Rockas is one of three female teams comprising mostly of young female athletes. The team made its debut last season and has shown promise since then.
The young team this season had an upset win over Vision Angels to the surprise of many. That has been their only win this season, for now.
They also lost narrowly to Hoops Angels which to some was also consider an upset.
These three teams mentioned above are the future of female basketball in Liberia, no doubt!
Going up against Desert Ladies is a hurdle for these young players. Desert Ladies, coming out from a blow out lost to Commissioners(f) needed to get their act together. On paper they were clear favorites.
The first quarter showed sign of promise as they were able to hold the Desert girls to a single point lead at the end of the quarter.
Supremacy settled in in the next quarter and Desert Ladies began to pull away.
Joyce K Baar scored seven points to go along with 7REB. With not much help from other team mates, it was a herculean task holding on to the fort as Desert Ladies came after them wave after wave of attacks.
Dearest Johnson was active on the boards. She had nine rebounds to go along with 4PTS.
Desert Ladies on the other hand, wasn’t ready to be on the receiving end of an upset.
Agnes S Yarba had a double double with 12PTS, 10REB. She also received help from Elizabeth Ocquaye who chipped in seven points to go along with seven rebounds and two blocks.
The victory currently has Desert Ladies sitting comfortably at the third position with three wins and two loses.
D-Rockas are 1-4 so far this season having completed all of their first round matches.
The fixture of the second round will be out soon and we wish them a better outing in the next round.
