Fitness Zone-Juramas advance to You.C1000 final

Fadhil Yunus

Fitness Zone-Juramas became the first side to reach the final of the You.C1000 Cup after they defeated TK Teahouse 96-78 in the last four at the Brunei Basketball Association Court in Batu Bersurat last night.

Fitness Zone had the upper hand in the first quarter though TK Teahouse clawed their way into contention after trailing only by five points.

With Goh Kiat Chun and Alvin Goh running the show, Fitness Zone was firmly in control but TK had their moments early on illustrated by fine teamwork moves in attack. These promising signs led them to within touching distance of the pre-match favourites in the opening quarter.

Fitness Zone finished strongly in the opening quarter and they continued their momentum until the final buzzer.

They will meet the winner of the second semi-final match contested by Easyway and YTE in tomorrow’s title decider.
