Uganda continued their winning run against the Namibia at the SPAR Challenge Tri-Nations series at the Cape Town International Conference Centre on Monday.

The She Cranes beat the Desert Jewels 57-27 in what was the most dominant performance of the three meetings at the tournament.

Uganda dominated throughout, with the Desert Jewels providing no resistance until the last quarter that they lost by just one goal.

For Shaffie Nalwanja who was named player of the match, the focus is on winning their final game against South Africa Proteas who lead the three-match series 2-0.

What we really want to do is to beat the SPAR Proteas in our final game on Wednesday.
