YMCA Outdoor Court

KCCA Leopards recovered from their defeat against JKL Lady Dolphins to dispatch new comers Makerere University Sparks.

Ali Mavita’s charges literally broke no sweat on Wednesday to overcome the University side winning the game 93-50.

In the game played at the YMCA outdoor court in Wandegeya MUK Sparks looked like they would put up a fight in the opening stages leading 18-17 at the end of the first quarter.

However when KCCA Leopards stepped up their efforts, MUK Sparks ran out of steam to eventually lose the next three quarters 16-11, 32-12 and 28-9 in that order.

Burundian point guard Cynthia Irakunda orchestrated the damage on the new comers putting up a player of the match performance.

She has 12 points, three rebounds and six assists shooting 5-9 from the field inside her 25 minutes on court.

When Judith ‘Ayo’ Nansobya came on, MUK Sparks struggled further and she went ahead to post a game high 18 points.

Nansobya came off the bench to grab a game high 18 points.

Leticia Awor and Beryl Aoko also had points in double figures for KCCA Leopards scoring 17 and 14 points respectively.

Aoko actually had a double double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Ruth Nangiro Moding and Azida Nabayunga scored 14 points each while Rose Basemera had 10 points, four rebounds and six assists for the Sparks in a losing effort.

This was the second loss for MUK Sparks in as many games after losing to KIU Rangers in their season opener last week.
