“Danger man” Kami Kabange was on the mark scoring 27 points with seven rebounds while Jimmy Enabu had 20 baskets and four rebounds for the champions.

Gad Eteu’s boys tried to pull back through Phillip Ameny and Steven Omony with 15 points each while Ramadhan Abdulahi had 14 baskets.

City Oilers’ Mandy Juruni applauded his players for the work well done and for winning the trophy in their maiden season.

“We played well and we therefore deserved to win the trophy,” stressed the excited Juruni.


“Danger man” Ramadhan Arou who missed the previous game due to an injury was also full of praises for his teammates who fought tooth and nail to claim the trophy.

Moment of joy

“We fought hard and gave in our best which yielded into good results. We gave them a run for their money,” Arou boasted.

The City Oiler, however, explained that the injury he had cost him and the team a lot because he didn’t play with ease.

“I had to be given pain killers but I played under a lot of pain during this game. In fact, I was half the player I used to be before getting the injury but thank God, we have won the silver ware.”

However, Falcons’ Ramadhan Abdulahi expressed concern over the loss of many baskets and the solid defence of their opponents which he said contributed the former’s loss.

“They fought hard but we also made small mistakes which cost us a lot,” he lamented.

He, therefore, applauded his teammates for reaching the finals for two times in a row which he said was a sign of good performance by the six time national league champions.

Players vying to touch the silver ware

Falcons lost in the finals for the second time in a row after losing their sixth game to Kyambogo Warriors last year before eventually losing the trophy.
