Rachael Nanyonga produced a memorable show as Uganda fought hard to pick a 54 all draw against President’s XII in their last match of the 2016 Diamond league played at the University of Durban-Westville on Wednesday night.
The She Cranes were unfortunate not to return home with a single victory despite controlling three quarters of the game.
The Rashid Mubiru’s ladies hit a dozen opening a four point gap into the second quarter but later slipped to allow the South Africans to pull 16-15 win.
They returned energized from the halftime breather to extend their lead to 42 goals to President XII’s 37.
Hosts pulled a comeback in the last quarter to level 54-54.
South Africa’s main team SPAR Proteas thumped Zimbabwe 68-34 to maintain 100% record and claim their second consecutive title.
