“You are going to see a totally different power from today on” so Power’s guard Joseph Ikong told Kawowo Sports prior to the Ndejje game on Friday at YMCA. Power ran away with a 20 points victory. 68-48 it ended.

Before the game against Ndejje, Power had dropped two of five games including a 54-66 loss to Vegetarian a couple of weeks earlier and were not as convincing in the wins. “It has been a little bit of indiscipline here and there and complacency but we have put down a few house rules” Ikong said

We don’t need to know the rules and we don’t need to know – may be staying indoors on Saturday nights was one of them but whatever the rules are, they seem to be working. The five time champions followed the beating of Ndejje with their second dominant performance of the season.

They routed new comers Sharing Youths 86-63 at Makerere – Philip Ameny once again providing the spark with game high 20 points backed by Norman Blick and Dullah with 17 points each and Paul Odong contributed 14 points. Kutai Gatwetch and Tony Okello had 16 and 14 points respectively for the Youths.

Meanwhile, forward Eric Malinga was back on the floor for the first time since last season and paced Warriors to a 62-55 win over Vegetarian with 16 points and Joshua Etalu added 12. Richard Ongom and Ben Okumu had 14 and 12 for Vegetarian.

In the women’s league, KCCA beat Nkumba and A1’s struggles continued with a 36-25 loss to KIU Rangers.
