The University of Buea male handball team have qualified for the quarter finals in handball of the ongoing University games in Dschang,West Region of Cameroon.
The 2015 gold medalist cruised past Institute Universitaire du Golf du Guinea ( IUG) Douala 27 points to 13 in an entertaining group B duel.
The handball boys have risen from the ruins of last year’s expedition in Maroua where they failed to repeat their historic exploit.
They almost went close to dismay this year when they lost their opening game against the University of Youande I 21-26. They also feel to varsity heavy weight Douala 22-24 on day two.
The boys of coach Simon Buchar braved the odds to win their third game convincingly 27-13.
“It was a difficult match. But being the gladiators that we are,we made it.” UB handball boy player Tardine Celestine said to kick442.com.
The University of Buea male handball team have been the pride of the University of Buea and are hoping to make a positive difference this year.
