Super League defending champions National Insurance Corporation were yet again on the receiving end as they were put to the sword for the second time this season.

Defender Faridah Kadondi helped Makindye Weyonje NC write history as they registered their first victory over NIC since they joining the Super League in 2018/19 season

The side coached by Jesse Assiimwe shocked the netball fraternity with a tight 40-36 victory on Saturday at Kamwokya Community Sports Center.

The big win had Kadondi and her partnership with Shakirah Nassaka and Shakirah Nagadya keep it tight at the back to close out NIC’s scoring duo of Sera Zam and Victoria Nantumbwe to score.

Kadondi made over eight steals on the day which made her an exceptional player on Saturday and she couldn’t hide her excitement after the game.

“I hope I performed well according to the comments I heard from the fans, so I thank my fellow players for the coordination we had,” Kadondi told Nnalubaale sports.

On the flip side, NIC’s coach, Ali Mugisha revealed the reason as to why they lost another game before the end of first round.

“I have a small squad, some are injured so I have to jungle with the few I have to see that I get results from them.” Ali Mugisha explained the team’s situation.

This is the first game this season for NIC to score less goals, 36 and Seera Zam scored limited goals compared to previous games, she only managed 20 goals.

“We lost the game because of our mistakes and the errors by the umpire. The two losses in first round is not good and like any coach, you can be worried but I am not, I hope next round we shall rectify,” a full of confidence Mugisha added.

NIC’s first defeat of the season was against KCCA. So far, they have played 10 games and are left with one first round encounter against Prisons.

Despite the loss, NIC are still on top of the table with 16 points having played two more games than the second and third placed Prisons and KCCA respectively who also have 16 points each.

Makindye Weyonje who are also left with only one game to finish their first round fixtures remained in 5th position with 12 points.

In other results, Prisons extended her unbeaten run to eight games after a 56-34 win against Ugx Luweero, UCU Netball Club beat UPDF 44-39 while Police humbled Posta by 52-40.
