MAKERERE - Kololo Secondary School defied all odds of not having a facility – after part of their play ground was sold off to investors, and also being poorly facilitated – to go on and whip schools rugby powerhouse Namilyango College 33-0 in the Schools rugby league semi-final at Makerere rugby ground on Sunday.

Kololo team captain James Ijongat provided much more than inspiration to his side by scoring four out of five conversions.

Nobert Okenyi and Juma scored two tries each while Edgar Sseruwagi added one in a contest dominated by Kololo.

In the other semi-final, which was the first, St.Mary’s College Kisubi (SMACK) were edged 8-0 by defending champions Hana Mixed School.

Kevin Keremundu and Steven Alul scored a try and penalty respectively for Hana in the clash.

“We played well and dominated the game but failed to execute,” admitted SMACK games teacher Ronald Mutebi.

In the junior categories, Namilyango and SMACK qualified for the U-16 and 14 final respectively by a toss of a coin.

In the U-16 Namilyango drew 5-5 with Kyambogo in normal time and had to go for drop kicks where each scored, forcing a toss of the coin that went in favour of Namilyango.

In the second semi-final Hana defeated SMACK 3-0 to book a final encounter with Namilyango.

In the U-14 category, Namilyango were gifted a 28-0 walkover after  London College failed to turn up for the fixture, while SMACK won by a toss of a coin after leveling 0-0 in normal time of play and 1-1 in drop kicks.
