The teams pose with the trophies
Kings Lacrosse Cup
MUBS 9 Panthers 7
MUBS 3 Maroons 2
The annual Kings Lacrosse Cup is always a beauty to watch. However, this years’ edition ended up as a one-sided affair this year as MUBS clinched both the men and women’s titles Saturday at Luzira grounds, the home of Maroons.
Fresh from the Israel Lacrosse Premier League, Patrick Oriana has brought something more to his game; his wit and technique was quite unmatched!
Having turned out for Barak Netanya Club as a franchise player in Israel, he has gained the all – important experience that could further propel Uganda next year in the Men’s World Lacrosse Championships.
Oriana who is also the national team captain scored three goals in the 9-7 triumph over Panthers in the men’s final. David Onen, John Mukanga and Kenneth Lubanga added two goals each in a riveting encounter.
Meanwhile Liberty Twesiime’s hat trick and Reagan Ochan’s double were not enough to see through Panthers who won the Uganda Lacrosse League. Clinton Watumbe was also in the mix with two goals.
MUBS’s ladies side came cruising past the hosts Maroons in a 3-2 thriller. MUBS are growing more in consistency following a successful campaign in the League.
The Kings Cup was a precursor to the national team try outs later this month as Uganda prepares for the much anticipated World Championships in Israel.
