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 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.
