Traditional giants fall in semifinals


Traditional rugby schools giants St. Mary’s College Kisubi and Namilyango saw their campaigns come to an uneventful climax at the expense of Hana Mixed and Kololo Secondary School.

If anyone still doubted the class of the new generation schools, Sunday’s National Schools League semi finals should have turned their doubt into belief.

Smack and Namilyango, both, failed to post even a solitary point on board when they lost to Hana 11-0 and Kololo 33-0 respectively.Hana’s Kevin Keremundu touched down and scored a penalty before Richard Odur added a penalty to book their berth in the final.

The game lost some of its spark when Smack captain Ronald Ogwok broke his leg for the second time in two years. “The loss of our captain affected the boys psychologically” said coach Ronald Mutebi.

The highlight of the day was Kololo’s show against Namilyango. The league debutantes exhibited a host of brilliant plays as James Ijongat orchestrated the demolition.

Two tries from Michael Amolo plus one apiece from Juma Ochan, Allan Omoding and Jeremiah Wassawa ensured the game was done and dusted by half time as no points were posted in the second half.“We could have scored more,” said coach Kevin Markmot. But the boys decided to enjoy themselves.”
