The Department of Livestock closed out the 2019 RNR Men’s Basketball finals with a close win against Haa Fishery in Thimphu yesterday evening (21 August 2019). It was a night of firsts at the swimming pool complex as the DoL team in the history claimed the first-time basketball title organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forests.
DoL team was met by an energized Haa Fishery team who quickly took an early lead, and their relentless lead had it tough for DoL Gonors to overcome. Just before the close of fourth quarters, boys in yellow (DoL) had it equalized to take it into 5 minutes extra play. The DoL turned it up a notch in last minute to lead by one basket (58-60) and won the championship.
Six teams from various technical departments under MoAF took part in the tournament.
