By Timothy Murungi, :: 18-04-2012

UCU Shepherds bagged the runners-up trophy from the western sevens trophy on March 31 at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST). 

     The league champions were mauled by Rwanda’s national sevens team, Rwanda Buffalos 5-17. Rwanda Buffalos and Shepherds were meeting for the second time in the tourney with Shepherds losing in both encounters. Shepherds sailed through their pool with just one loss against Rwanda Buffalos. They beat Kampala International University (KIU) premier team and the hosts MUST before their tough encounter with the Rwanda Buffalos. Rwanda Buffalos were unbeaten throughout the tournament.

    Shepherds were delighted by their performance.“We played well, considering the little time that we had for training,” said Shepherds top scorer, Gabriel Okonye.

     “We were informed late but had to prepare in the shortest possible time (three days). But we showcased our best,” said assistant captain Maurice Olupot.
