Olila High School breaks season duck with Sixes Challenge triumph

Olila High School overcame a series of heartbreaks to win the last silverware - the Afri Power Engineering Women’s Sixes Challenge on Saturday.
Lugogo Cricket Oval was busy thoughout the day as eight sides battled for the final trophy on offer of the season. 
Now Olila High School came here nursing wounds after losing the Jazz Safari National Women’s League last weekend. 
It was the same script a few months ago when Damani as well beat Olila to win the Mehta Twenty20 League final.
On Saturday under terrible light, Olila finally quenched their thirst after beating KICC in a bowl-to-stumps final at thick dusk.
With the clock reading 6:53pm, the sun was completely in bed, lights around Lugogo on and match referee Patrick Makumbi advised a final of that caliber rather than a Super Over final.
To save time earlier, semifinals where KICC and Olila beat Damani A and B by six wickets and 31 runs respectively had been three-over contests. 
In the final, it is 16-year-old Proscovia Alako who bowled to the stumps on the fifth and final ball for Olila to win in an odd final. 
“Its a great feeling knowing how close we came to winning the two titles,” Olila’s manager Felix Musana stated. 
“The girls have been outstanding and its nice for them to win a trophy for their efforts during the year.”
But the manner of the final left some pondering. “Given the time left it was not possible to have both innings and the rules had that option in deciding a winner,” Musana added.
“May be the Super Over could have done but well,” a KICC player offered. 
This was the first Sixes tournament for ladies since 2016. Interestingly, that year’s final was pushed due to bad light.

Jinja SS wins Ladies Sixes trophy

The choices we make in life make or break us, they often say so. Lady Cricket Cranes all-rounder Franklyn Najjumba can now relax after her decision to leave National Women’s 50-Over League champions Pioneer for Jinja Secondary School.
It certainly feels right after the 28-year-old spurred Jinja SS to the National Women’s Sixes Cup title on her first day in business at Lugogo Oval on Saturday. 
“I am so excited playing with the girls,” Najjumba told Daily Monitor after the five-wicket win over Tornado Bee. “And the fact that we have won our first trophy of the season, this is a perfect start here.”

Najjumba’s right-arm medium-fast deliveries earned her figures of 2/4 in her five-ball spell and together with Stephannie Nampiina (2/2) they bowled out Tornado Bee for 35 runs in 4.5 overs. 
Skipper Naome Kayondo top-scored with 10 off 13 balls. The target for coach Habibu Mugalula’s side was within reach and revenge for defeat in last year’s Sixes Cup final was imminent.
Dinah Adong sealed the job with a 16-ball 15-run knock to add to the club’s 2014 Twenty20 title.

Prior, both sides had played in the 50-Over League season opener that had gone Tornado Bee’s way. 
“The girls have been used to the Twenty20 format but with time we, shall catch up,” Najjumba said. 
Here, Tornado Bee majorly relied on the chemistry between their openers Rashida Kalsum (43 off 82) and Saidat Kemigisha (24 off 22). 
The pair built a firm foundation and despite Nampiina (4/19) and Rita Musamali’s (3/42) resistance, they coasted 147 in 37 overs.

Tornado B clinch Sixes Challenge

Newly-formed side, Tornado B, produced a master class to beat Jinja SS by four wickets in the final and clinch the inaugural National Women’s Sixes Challenge title at Lugogo on Saturday.
“I do not captain teams that don’t win,” a smiling skipper Mackenzie Ayato boasted upon lifting the trophy. “It’s never easy to win on the first time of asking but we have done it,” she added. 
Having opted for more youth in the transfer market, Tornado B were expected to play second fiddle to star-studded sides KICC and Glo International this season.

However, Tornado B overcame several odds as they only lost one wicket and sealed the season’s tournament opener with a three-match flawless streak. 
“Other teams may have the star players but our talented girls will match them even in subsequent tournaments,” Tornado B coach, Jackson Ogwang, said
Throughout the long-day event, Tornado B relied on tournament MVP Racheal Ntono and Saidat Kemigisha’s bats. The pair combined well in the round-robin phase to chase down targets against Charity Trust Fund and Jinja SS.

In the semifinal, Kemigisha (12* off 7) and Ntono’s (18* off 15) combo again helped Tornado B beat money bags KICC by five wickets to set-up a final against a Claire Mushakamba-led Jinja. “Had some of our key players like turned up, the script would have been different,” KICC’s Scovia Akello said.

INDIVIDUAL HONOURS
Player of Series: Racheal Ntono (Tornado B) - 59 runs in three innings. Best Batter: Claire Mushakamba (Jinja SS) - 52 runs 
Best Bowler: Veronica Nakadama (KICC) - 4 wickets.
