UGANDA LACROSSE WOMENS 9’S GAME 1
ANGELS – 7
DOVES – 2
The Angels won at home by 7 goals to 3 for the Doves. The game took a fast start with Nakato putting in a weak shot in the poorly defended Doves half in the 3rd minute. Dorothy cut through the Doves defence and added a second for the Angels in the 5th minute. Shortly after Dorothy’s goal, Camilla of the Doves made an aggressive drive from her half to the Angels area and scored with a superb shot in the 6th minute. Camilla’s goal got a swift reply with Nakato scoring again a minute after. Dorothy added her second of the game in the dying minutes of the quarter.
Harriet featured in the second quarter scoring 2 goals in the 11th and 19th minute. Camilla again made a superb solo run to the Angels goal and scored once again, this time in the 15th minute. However the Angels rout was wrapped up by another display of skill by the captain, Dorothy, who put the Doves to sleep scoring at stoppage time.
This result gives the Angels game 1 of 9 games and leaves the Doves with a 5 goal deficit to level the scores. Game 2 is on the 14th January next year.
