Wednesday games at YMCA
Sharing v Warriors
Oilers v Dolphins
KAMPALA - Pemba Warriors and City Oilers return into action Wednesday evening at YMCA against JKL Dolphins and Sharing Youth, respectively.
Last Friday, Oilers grabbed a 72-62 victory over Warriors to subject Ronnie Mutebi’s team to a first defeat of this campaign.
Today, Oilers will meet Dolphins, a rather much less intimidating side, in game two of the day.
Given their poor performance in the league, with several losses and just a single win to brag about, it is only clear that Dolphins will have a lot on their plate against Mandy Juruni’s more skilled side.

Meanwhile, in the first action of the day, Sharing will be out to face the wrath of Warriors.
Having lost their most anticipated game of the league to Oilers, Warriors will be out to recover their losses in a brusing encounter.
Before they fell to Oilers a few days ago, Warriors bragged around as the last team standing, being unbeaten since the start of the season.
Soon, those bragging rights were washed right under the bridge. They will now be looking to pick themselves up with an eighth win of the season.
“Before we went into the game against the City Oilers we had bigger hopes of a good game but that didn’t happen,” said Warrior’s coach, Mutebi.
“However, what is done is done. Our focus is on today’s game and we intend to end the game as victors,” he added.
