LUGOGO – Our Saviour will look to build on their Saturday victory over UPDF, when they face off with Charging Rhino at the MTN Arena in Lugogo.
The team defeated UPDF Tomahawks 74-42 to end their six game winless streak. Their last victory before Saturday’s dates back to 9th June in a 51-36 win over Pemba Warriors.
They have played 15 games so far this season and seat 9th on the 12 team log with a 7-8 record.
For Charging Rhinos, they have only four victories from their 17 games so far, and they come into the YMCA clash at the back of a four game losing streak.
They have lost to Betway Power, Ndejje Angels, UCU Canons and UPDF Tomahawks in that spell.
Rhino’s last league victory was a 64-58 win against Sharing Youth on July 8th. The other three victories of the season came against KCCA, UPDF and JKL Dolphins.
Rhino will rely on Abel Omomgin, Swaib Kalungi and Sam Wacha to try and end the losing streak.
Our Saviour on their hand will look to the services of Joseph Wacha and Pirwoth Wilberforce for maximum points on the evening.
This is a game that can go either way; however, Our Saviour will be confident they can take the honors just like they did in the first round tie which they won 66-59.
In the ladies game, Javon Ladies who are second from the bottom will take on Magic Stomers.
Javon have only managed two wins this season, a feat that leaves them as string favourites for the drop.
Also, all is not well for the Stormers, a team that majorly comprises of Buddo SS girls. The side will be in pursuit of their fifth league victory.
Magic has had an upper hand in this tie whenever the two sides meet. They won 47-44 in the first round. Won both regular season ties last season – 73-62 in September and 59-68 in June last year.
