After stretching the women’s national Volleyball series to 2-0 at the expense of KAVC, Ndejje University are not only one win away from claiming their maiden league title but also their first double.

The Luwero side triumphed over the 2008 winners KAVC 3-2 (25-16, 18-25, 25-21, 15-25, 5-15). Ndejje defeated the same side 3-1 to win their first national championship early this season, and coach Johnson Kawenyera has a lot of belief in his young side.

“KAVC is an experience side, but if we are conscious, I believe we can be crowned champions in game three,” said Kawenyera. “The girls believe they can do it just like they did in the national championship, there is no better motivation than that,” he added. 

Ndejje skipper Belindah Jepkirui stressed that her side need to keep their focus if they are to shock KAVC. Hannington Nsubuga’s side will have to pray that Sheila Omuriwe gets better ahead of the crucial game three after she sat out game two due to injury.

The flying libero was involved in a car accident on Wednesday that injured her head also affecting her sight in the process, Omuriwe defied doctor’s orders and played game one. 

“Truthfully the game has just began, are we are not letting go without a fight,” said KAVC attacker Maria Nafuka. Men’s defending champions Nkumba showed character when they defeated Nemo Stars 3-0 (25-22, 25-20, 25-18) to level the series 1-1.

KAVC cubs are in the driving seat in the Serie B after they defeated Mulago 3-1 (25-22, 19-25, 25-14, 25-20).
