Knight Riders scored 28 points in the fourth quarter to overturn Vegetarians first half 28-25 lead, to win game two of the Yellow Go Conference semi-final play-off series Saturday evening at YMCA Wandegeya courts.

National team star Evans Enabu (15 points) and John Musoke (18) made a good account of themselves troubling Vegetarians' defence with coast-to-coast drives in the last five minutes.
Victor Bwangamoi made a team-high 14 points for Vegetarians while Chaka Jeje added 10. Having won game one of the series 66-47 at Lugogo Indoor Stadium two weeks ago,
Riders are now assured of a place in the topflight Yellow Max Conference.
They will however have to play best of five final series with either Uganda Christian University (UCU) Mukono or Makerere Heaters to determine the Yellow Go champions.
Vegetarians will play the loser between UCU and Heaters for the third and last position in Yellow Max on November 11.

In second division Lubiri High defeated Crane High 71-67 to level the series at 1 all. The two are fighting for a place in the Yellow Go Conference next season.
