Men : KHC Stallions 2 – 1 Weatherhead
Women: KHC Swans 0 – 11 Wananchi
New signing Benjamin Mpaka and Timothy Ntumba’s strikes gave KHC Stallions fans a reason to smile after a 2-1 victory over Weatherhead in the National Hockey League opener at Lugogo on Saturday 17th June 2017.
Having ended the first-half on a barren note, Weatherhead came back strong in the second half and took the lead thanks to Vincent Kasasa’s goal.
But their joy was short lived as Mpaka struck Stallions equalizer and Ntumba’s short confirmed that the hosts walk away with maximum points.
The victory was Stallions second win over Weatherhead in as many as 10 games in the league in the last three years, with the last one coming in the evening of last years dead rubber with only pride to play for.
Elsewhere in the Women’s league, Wananchi blitzed past KHC Swans 11-0 as they kick started off their season in a brilliant style.
Doreen Mbabazi saw the net thrice as Wananchi penned Swans in their own half with Doreen Asiimwe adding a double to end the first-half 5-0.
As if that was not enough, Wananchi through Amia Maggy also added a brace to stretch the lead to 7-0 early in the second half.
Aciro Teddy, Alum Norah, Anyango Topisita and Makoha Peace each added one goal as Wananchi continued it’s dominance over Swans.
