Warriors suffered an unlikely loss to JKL Dolphins in their last game of the first round. This discontent with their performance was visible across the board.

On Sunday evening, the two-time champions bounced back with a dominant 72-41 win over Ndejje Angels at YMCA.

Despite being without Mark Opiyo, Jonathan Kambala and Michael Otieno as well as head coach Ronnie Mutebi, Warriors turned the two-point first quarter lead into a 31-point blowout win.

Michael Buzangu led the way for Warriors with 15 points, Chris Omanye added 13 and dished out 5 assists while player of the game Daniel Gaaki contributed an efficient 10 points.

Innocent Ochera (15 points) led Ndejje’s abysmal performance in which they shot a disappointing 15-of-60 from the field and committed 18 turnovers.

It was Ndejje’s fifth consecutive defeat since beating Our Saviour 94-63 on May 19. They have since twice lost to Warriors, fallen to Power, KIU Titans, and City Oilers.

Next Games

Ndejje returns to action on Wednesday, June 12 against Kampala University while Warriors will take a long break before facing KCCA Men on Wednesday, June 19.
