"Team work makes the dream work".

Panthers lacrosse team won second straight game of the ULL with out back bone player's Ochan Reagan and Komakech Edward both canditates in S4 class while they were off on a school program.

Ssazi Kenneth ( 9 face off wins and 1 assist)
YMCA Warriors struggled containing the rowdy Panthers attack led by Kasule Kenneth who registered a quick hatrick in the first half.
Inter-play between Keny Dean a.k.a Ssazi Keneth with Nsubuga Faizo helped a loss by 0 but all indications show need for more team work in order for the team to get better.
