National Handball League
By David Isabirye – Entebbe
” This is a sweet victory and i thank God who has enabled us finish the league on top given the fact that we missed the first round game against Nkumba due to financial constraints”, remarked the veteran Badaru with a wide smile across her face. Prisons finished top of the ladies’ league on 16 points while Nkumba University claimed the runners up slot on 14, UPDF (13), Police (8) and Ever Green (4) followed in that order.
In the other games played, Ever Green suffered a double loss against UPDF and Nkumba with 19-28 and 32-26 respectively in the ladies category while Prison Arrows edged Police Metro by a point margin (31-30), Ever Green beat Police Metro 26-21 and Prison Arrows were 40 to 36 victors over hosts Nkumba University in the men’s category.
