Yesterday, four matches were played in the ongoing basket ball tourney of the schools of Thimphu Thromde.
In the first match, Loseling Middle Secondary School girls popularly known as Changjiji school girls played against the Dr Tobgyel team and saw Dr Tobgyel beating Loseling 12-4.
But in the boy’s match, which was again Dr. Tobgyel vs Loseling, the boys of Loseling played good enough in the first quarter to make up for their girls’ defeat.
The second quarter was a draw for Loseling and Dr Tobgyel with 15-15 though Dr Tobgyel’s performance saw impressive improvement. Spectators though very less were expecting that Loseling would hold on with a good start in the third quarter.
But the third quarter was monopolized by Dr. Tobgyel after many time outs . Dr Tobgyal scored 27 leaving behind Loseling with five baskets.
Loseling could score only two baskets in the fourth and final quarter in which one was scored by the youngest player, Tshering Samdrup of Loseling who came in substituting the main player of the team.
