Nkumba University Volleyball Club hopes to build on the success in the UCU Open ahead of game two of the national volleyball league playoffs final. Nkumba beat Sport-S 3-1 a result assistant coach and club libero, Tony Lakony says it is a sign of a hungry lion.
“We have just won the UCU Open and we are defending champions of the league, that doesn’t make us failures and we have nothing to be ashamed of,” Lakony said “We are counting on the league to level with other clubs,” coach Albert Gayi added.
It was evident in game one that Gayi and company struggled to keep up with Gharelnabi Hussein and George Apuro’s quick attacks and Louis Mubangizi’s power attack. “We are going to have more centre players on court to deal with their quick attack,” Gayi said.
“Also count on the quick ball, and not so much of the high ball like in game one,” he added. While Nkumba sound more ready to go, Nemo maintain the low profile attitude even though they have an upper hand now.
“We do not want to call it and advantage because if Nkumba win game two it goes back to square one. We will call it an advantage Nemo after we win game two,” Mubangizi said.
We cannot underestimate them (Nkumba) even after beating them twice in the regular season and now in game one,” he added. In the women’s final Ndejje return to haunt KAVC as theformer also look to strench the series after commanding a 1-0 lead.
Michael Kashuku and his Mulago side have an uphill task of fighting for pride against KAVC Cubs in the Serie B both teams are already promoted to the Serie A
