AT the start of the second edition of the Lacrosse national league, no one gave the inexperienced Strykers a chance of clinching their first league title.
All odds were on defending champions Oneonta and last season’s runners up Warriaz. The two sides boast a number of national team players in their ranks but come Saturday, Strykers is in with a chance to turn the tables.
Team manager Jannie Nabbumba thinks they did their homework well after a poor finish in the previous edition where Strykers finished second from bottom in the five team league.
“We sat down with the boys and checked our weaknesses, reorganised and confronted each game as a final,” Nabbumba explained.
Strykers started the season with solid wins to underline their title ambitions.
They lead the league with 18 points, six ahead of Panthers. All they need is a draw or a loss of not more than five goals to be crowned champions.
Strykers' last game will be against Warriaz this Saturday at MUBS playground, Nakawa. Kings take on Panthers on the same day.
Oneonta surrendered their league title ambitions with a draw against rival Warriaz in their last outing.
