Basketball: Al Ahly down Zamalek in league action

Ahly basketball

Al Ahly comfortably beat arch-rivals Zamalek 76-56 in Egyptian Premier League action on Thursday.

The Reds dominated the match from the very beginning and managed to maintain their healthy lead throughout the quarters, ending the match with a 20-point difference.

The first period ended 39-26 to the home team, and by the end of the third period the margin had increased to 54-39.

Al Ahly then added a further five points to their cushion in the final quarter, as the game ended 76-56.

The historic rivalry between the Cairo giants has not been limited to football; and Al Ahly headed into the match wanting to avenge their handball team’s recent loss to the Whites.

Al Ahly joins Al-Ittihad, El-Gezira and Sporting on 14 points, while Zamalek reached their 12th point.

A medical student who loves football. Any free time I have is usually dedicated to football. I support Al Ahly and Real Madrid (Al Ahly comes first of course). Contrary to popular belief, I believe that females enjoy football as much as males do; I am a living proof :D Proud that I am writing for King Fut.
