UGANDA : Tight Playoffs

ELIZABETH Kizza scored 11 of her team high 18 points in the fourth quarter to help defending champions A-1 Challenge defeat KCC Leopards in game two of the MTN Basketball League semi-final play-off series Sunday evening at YMCA.
A-1 Challenge, the women's defending champs became the first team to beat KCC Leopards who have won a record 19 games since the season begun in April.

Becky Akullo had a game high 24 points for KCC Leopards but her teammates in Agatha Baliddawa and Annett Nakiwu were a shadow of themselves managing only 2 points apiece.

Meanwhile, Stephen Okias led Warriors with 27 points on their way to a 68-52 win over Sadolin Power. Allan Tawoda top scored for Power with 19 points. The two teams will also meet for game three on a yet to be set date to determine who plays in the final.
