Action returns this Saturday in the National Hockey league with the men’s table leaders Wananchi hoping to bounce back from last Sunday’s defeat against Weatherhead.
Kampala Hockey Club vs WHD Historicals will be game week 7’s opener. Originals who have won only one game this season have defensive issues to solve going into Saturday’s game. The team has conceded 36 times while scoring 6 goals this season. Their goal return ratio is the worst of any side in the league this season.
On the other hand, their opponents WHD Historicals who lie one position below them will be seeking for their first victory of the season.
The game of the day will see second placed Wananchi HC take on fifth placed Rockets at 3:30 pm. Wananchi will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s 4-2 loss against Weatherhead. The loss pushed Wananchi into second position following Kampala Hockey club’s 5-0 victory against WHD Vikings.
Saturday’s penultimate match will be a lady’s affair with third placed Deliverance taking on second placed Kampala HC. Only two points separate both teams and a win for Deliverance will move them into second place while victory for Kampala HC will help them level points with table leaders Wananchi.
There will also be action on Sunday with one game on the card where fourth placed City Lions will take on third placed Weatherhead HC. Both teams are tied at 15 points although Weatherhead has a superior goal difference. Weather head will be boosted by last weekend’s victory over Wananchi.
