Hippos are looking to end the season on a strong note when they host Mongers at dam waters this Saturday. They had remained unbeaten at home until last Saturday when Heathens defeated them. They will be hoping for the homeground to be their goodluck charm

Hippos currently sit in 4th place with 20 points. They are not entirely assured of the position with Mongers breathing down their neck in 5th position with 17 points. 

Both teams have something to prove after they were defeated in their games of week 8. Mongers lost to champions Heathens while Hippos failed to tame the Pirates at home last weekend. 

Hippos have lost three consecutive games for the first time this season. It should not go unnoticed that the games were against Pirates, KOBS and Heathens all occupying the first three positions. 

The Jinja based outfit have a formidable record against bottom teams winning 4 out of 5 games against teams below them. 

Mongers have struggled against teams above them losing all three games they have played this season. They will hope to cause an upset to Hippos whose aim this season was to finish in the first four places on the table. 

The two teams face off at 3:00 pm at Dam waters in what has been a thrilling season and one that promises better things for Hippos in upcoming tournaments with Maxwell Ebonga showing great promise for the Jinja outfit.
