As the final buzzer sounded, marking the end of their BAL journey, the City Oilers found themselves reflecting on what could have been. Dreams of glory and triumph had now faded into the harsh reality of defeat. Yet, amidst the disappointment, there remained a glimmer of hope—a resolve to regroup, rebuild, and return stronger.
