Friday fixtures in Lugogo
Women: VVC vs Ndejje – 6PM
Men: Sport-S vs KAVC – 8PM
Not the final many expected to see, but both KAVC and Sport-S are in the finals of the NSSF Volleyball League on merit. KAVC and Sport-S defeated Nkumba Navy and Nemostars in the semifinals respectively.
Their meeting in the final puts them in contention for a record fifth league title after both sides have won four on the road. KAVC’s coach Shila Omuriwe is not under pressure, the attitude that has got her this far in her second tenure as coach of KAVC.
We are going to play like we are playing any other game, get the guys focused and we will see how it goes. Everyone will play their part, we should be fine I know they boys are ready to fight and play good volleyball.
Her Sport-S counterpart Mugisha Benon is guiding Sport-S in the finals for the first time since 2011, when they lost to Nkumba. Though Mugisha prefers to keep lip tied as he faces the highest hurdle in his young coaching career, skipper Andrew Wandera is optimistic his side can come out on top.
KAVC is a tough side, but we are also not in the finals by mistake, we are definitely going to give our best. We have been at this stage before and maybe it has been a while, but we know how to handle ourselves in such situations and we should be able to come out on top.
The finals will be a best of five series and whoever wins three of those will be declared champion. Ndejje Elites and Vision Volleyball Camp will face off in the women’s finals in the MTN Arena in Lugogo.
