    Hosts Uganda came within a whisker of winning a first overall title at the 16th Brookside East Africa Secondary School games that climaxed on Saturday. In the end, however, Kenya maintained their superiority, holding on their crown with final day triumphs in hockey (girls and boys), soccer (girls) and volleyball (girls). Those titles gave 11 titles across 13 sports disciplines. Uganda did match their tally of 28 medals but collected nine Golds at the opening ceremony at Pece Stadium. State Minister for Higher Education John Chrysestom Muyingo would have been handing out a few more had Buddo SSS not choked to lose the boys' basketball title. Buddo lost 71-70 to Rwanda's APE Rugunga in a gripping game at Kaunda grounds, missing a free throw that would have sent the contest into overtime with two seconds to play. Similar margins gave Kenya the girls' soccer crown when Wiyeta beat Kawempe Muslim 6-5 in a post-match shootout after regulation was tied at 1-all. Consolation for Buddo came in the girls' basketball team beating St Mary's Secondary Kitende 66-55 to become the first Ugandan school to win the regional title since 2004. That final, like boys' soccer, had guaranteed Gold for Uganda on the final day. Kitende won tehri 12th boys' soccer title, beating Jinja SSS 1-0 after extra time. Kitende's Ashraf Bamuturaki scored from the spot after the referee awarded a phantom penalty against a 10-man Jinja SSS.

    KCCA Leopards Edge A1 Challenge to Lead in Semis - 7 days ago
    KCCA Leopards are on the verge of sweeping A1 Challenge in a best of five playoff series as the side took a 2-0 lead with a Sunday victory at the MTN Indoor Arena in Lugogo.

    A1 Challenge takes a walk-over - 14 days ago
    The ladies game between A1 Challenge and Nkumba will surely take the headlines for a bad reason as the former was given a walkover to take the easiest 1-0 lead in the series minus breaking a sweat. The game which was scheduled to start at 6 pm was delayed as Nkumba Lady Marine's players had not produced proof that had taken Hepatitis B cures - which is a mandatory by the Federation of Uganda Basketball Association (FUBA)   [read more]
