Super League: Clash of the titans as KCCA, NIC face off

Their will be no love lost as National Insurance Corporation and Kampala City Council Authority face off in the national netball league at Kamwokya Community Sports Centre.

The Saturday 5pm showdown finds the league’s best two sides coached by Ali Mugisha(NIC) and Fred Mugerwa (KCCA) unbeaten.

In their last two meetings, they have been making draws which is a rare case in the game of netball.

Last season they shared points in both meetings, each scoring 44 goals. But, NIC’s last league defeat back in 2019 was inflicted by KCCA.

The yellow girls current squad is capable of repeating this history, though, they are likely to be without their top defender in Shaffie Nalwanja due to an injury.

Irene Eyaru, Hanisha Muhammad, Mercy Batamulinza, Nambirige Sandra Ruth and Shadia Nassanga, are all national team material and they should give NIC a run for their money.

On the other hand, NIC will miss the services of the league top scorer, Sera Zam who is on suspension.

Zam had steadily filled the gap left behind by Stella Oyella who transferred to Sirens NC in Scotland prior to throw off of this season.

However, with the the services of skipper Joan Nampungu, Margaret Baagala, Sarah Nakiyunga, Privas Kayenyi and Florence Adunia, NIC has experience as their advantage.

After winning their last match on Wednesday against UCU Netball Club (54-41), Nampugu fired warning shoots.

“This UCU game has given us enough preparation for the Saturday’s game. As NIC our target is to win every game and to take the trophy while unbeaten,” captain Nampugu noted.

In other Saturday fixtures, financially and performance wise struggling Ugx Luweero will be hosting wounded UPDF in the opening fixture of the day.

Police Netball Club will entertain Africa Renewal University at 1pm before Posta and Weyonje Netball Club acting as a curtain raiser at 2:30pm for the big one.
