LONDON College Nansana were on Monday left facing elimination at the group stages of the ongoing National Ball Games at Lango College in Lira, after losing 3-0 to Ankole region giants Citizen High School Kaberebere.

The result put London College in third position of Group E with four points from three games, while Citizen High takes command of the group with 7 points from three games.

Citizen High, remembered for eliminating fancied Masaka SS in the second round of last year’s edition, will now need one win in their last two games to be sure of reaching the next round.

In Group B, last year’s finalists St. Mary’  Katende proved their might over Old Kampala, by walloping them 9-0, the highest score registered in the games so far.

In Basketball, last year’s finalists Lubiri SS beat Rock High 35-17 while former national winners Mengo SS continued being a shadow of their former selves since winning the championship in 2009, by losing their opener 29-20 to St Michael High School Sonde.

In the girls’ category, defending champions St. Mary’s Kitende started on a high with a 24-14 win over Lubiri High School while record champions Nabisunsa beat Nabbingo 31-6 in another one sided game.

In rugby, Namilyango College showed no mercy to Kiira College Butiki, by walloping them 65-12 in a one sided encounter.

The games that started on Sunday, have attracted participating schools in different sports disciplines of girls’ football, Rugby, Basketball, Lawn Tennis and Hockey.
