JKL Lady Dolphins vs A1 Challenge 6pm

JKL Lady Dolphins will play host to the visiting A1 Challenge today in the Ladies’ National Basketball League in what promises to be a tricky tie.

A1 Challenge received a major setback on Sunday when they lost 49-45 against Nkumba Lady Marines in a game that ended their 5 match winning streak.

Eddy Oumo’s Challengers had beaten KIU Titans, Magic Stormers, Gladiators, Javon Ladies and Lioness before that loss to Nkumba.

Lady Dolphins started their season on a sad note when they lost to KCCA Leopards, but the team pulled up their socks to win 6 games in a row before pegged down by the Lady Canons.

That 62-66 loss to the Canons on July 30th was their second defeat out of 8 games, and the team has collected 14 points.

Boniface Okello who normally rotates his squad on the club’s talented lineup will hope to bounce back and return to winning ways today.
