Weekend Results (Lira-Rhinos not confirmed):

Entebbe Mongers 7 – 39 D’ Mark Kobs

G4S Pirates 13 – 35 MTN Heathens

Mutoni Warriors 9 – 50 Toyota Buffaloes

The Kampala Legends rugby based outfit D’Mark Kampala Old Boys (KOBS) closed down on their chances finishing top of the regular season Nile Special National Rugby premiership with a hard fought 7 – 39 away victory over a cold and hot unpredictable Sadolin Mongers side at the usually dreaded House of pain arena in Entebbe on Saturday.

The ever improving Oscar Kalyango had a brace of tries that were complimented by further touch downs from Scott Oluch, Entebbe bred talent, Lawrence ‘Onchi’ Wakabi, Brian Odong and Edmond Tumusiime to which Aredo, and James Ijongat had successful conversions.

Mongers’s back room tactician cum player, Kigongo Ssebalamu registered a rare match day try late in the game whose first half ended 0 -22 in favour of the visitors.

 Kigongo’s effort only tainted the score line a worthy second look and the resultant conversion was as usual a success from the kicking boots of the left footed twin, Adrian Wasswa, brother and teammate to prop, Herbert Kato.

At the Legends club in Kampala, Brian Jjembe, Kevin Macmott and Matthew Egeru had a try apiece for the fast fading G4S Pirates who are now desperately fighting the relegation monster but an Arthur Mukama inspired MTN Heathens had the last smile with that 35-13 final score line.

Benon Kizza’s kicking succession for the yellow boys reaped eminent dividends succession and the final 13 – 35 result told the story in bold.

The earlier Legends fixture witnessed James Odongo stage a man of the match performance with a hat trick of tries for the Toyota Buffaloes who led 28 – 3 by the half time whistle.

Despite having Era Aredo sent for an early shower and Emmanuel Esau sin binned for unsporting and dangerous play respectively, the Buffaloes played like true wounded buffaloes the animals and stage managed a convincing 50 – 9 score line by full time that leaves them well in contention for that crucial play – off slot.

Buffaloes’ Kassim Buyondo also had a decent evening at office that condemned the Warriors to yet another defeat in as many games played.

The weekend was a bright one for several lucky fans who won various freebies courtesy of the sponsors – Nile Breweries. The luckiest were the duo of Keith Karunda and Alfred Rwothmi, who scooped return air tickets to the Kenyan capital of Nairobi for the annual Elgon Cup slated for March.

Meanwhile, the league returns this coming weekend with another round of eye catching fixtures on card.
