Two-time Uganda Secondary Schools Sports Association (USSSA) Football Champions Buddo SS have been drawn in the same group with Blessed Sacrament Kimaanya.

In the draws for this year’s Championship conducted on Wednesday at MTN Arena Lugogo, the two power houses were pitted in the same group.

It should be noted that the aforementioned schools played in the final of the 2018 edition in Mbarara at Kakyeka Stadium.

Buddo SS lifted the trophy courtesy of Frank Ssebufu’s solitary goal.

Notably, Kimanya under the stewardship of coach Brian Ssenyondo played the entire tournament with 13 players.

The two will now face off at the Group level this year and have been placed in Group E alongside Mbale Progressive School, Mityana SS, Alere SS, Fort Portal SS, Victoria High School and Amus College.

Defending Champions St. Mary’s Kitende are in Group A alongside Tororo Town College, Jinja Comprehensive, Latifa Mixed, Teso Progressive, St. Henry’s College Kitovu and Nakaseke International.
