Kings College Budo and Nkoma Secondary School won the boys’ and girls’ respective rugby 15’s titles at the 2023 Fresh Dairy Secondary School games in Mbarara city, Western Uganda.
Rugby climaxed at the Katatumba Academy playgrounds on Sunday, 14th May 2023 with mouth-watering action.
Following a week of intense and aggressive rugby action on the field of play, it was time to celebrate the champions.
Mbale city based Nkoma Secondary School came top ahead of Entebbe’s Airforce Secondary School, an army entity established by the Government of Uganda through the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF).
Kings College Budo needed a clinical 23-21 victory over archrivals Namilyango College to win gold.
Namilyango College had won the semi-final contest over St Mary’s College, Kisubi 19-13.
On the other hand, Kings College Budo defeated Makerere College 16-13 in the semi-finals played on Friday with John Paul Ssentomero running the show.
Brian Makalama, head coach at Kings College Budo attributed the victory to good planning and hard work.
“I congratulate the boys (players), school management and the coaches and everyone who supported us from start to finish. We had a mission which we have accomplished. The players were focused, composed, we planned well before and during the game. There was exceptional hard work from every department” Makalama noted.
His opposite number Ambrose Kakuru cast the loss to a lapse in concentration at the death of the game.
“We had command of the game for long spells but a small lapse in concentration cost us. We shall definitely bounce back stronger” Kakuru remarked.
