Kevin Chimwani’s lone goal saved title holders Wanainchi from being humiliated as they took on Kampala in their first game of the National Hockey League on Sunday at Lugogo.

Wanainchi’s striker Thomas Opio had earlier missed two attempts in the tense game before Chimwani broke the silence to put the 2014 champions in a cheering mood in the 47 minute after he scored the only goal that gave Wanainchi a 1-0 victory in the men’s category.

In the other men’s action, ROCKETS fell to a 9-3 defeat against tough opponents Weatherhead.

Rodney Nagaba, Ibra Tamale and Andrew Bushobora scored two goals each as Moses Tushabe, Erasmus Katwebaze and Vincent Kalule added a goal each as Weatherhead won their opening game this season. Meanwhile Daniel Kyaligonza, Jerome Owori and Michael Nashimolo scored the consolation goals for Rockets.

In the women’s category defending champions Weatherhead A started on a sad note after falling to the hands of Wanainchi in the game that ended 3-2 at the same venue while in the other game Weatherhead B side walloped Kampala 7-2.
