- MUK Open Final: VVC 3-1 Ndejje | 20-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-15
Vision Volleyball Camp claimed the 2018 MUK Open over the weekend after defeating Ndejje Elites 3-1 (20-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-15) at Makarere University main grounds.
It was the first title for the Ultimates since their return from the African Women’s Club Championship in Cairo, Egypt where they finished 11th.
VVC came from a set down and controlled the rest of the game with Vivian Adeke’s serves proving difficult for Ndejje to break.
Irene Amoding who had early struggles in the game largely because of Ndejje’s net defense started to grow into the game and her precision spiking inspired the Namboole side much to the delight of skipper Maggie Namyalo who says the team can only get better as the season progresses.
“We are all working hard and I feel we are getting better as a team day by day. We support each other on and off court and we believe that with our fans behind us, we shall achieve our goals this season,” Namyalo said as quoted by the club website.
“My appreciation goes to Zaina (Kagoya) and Becky (Logose) who worked hard in rejuvenating our defense in the subsequent sets, they won this for us.”
