Drama As Handball Champions League Ends Prematurely

Ugly scenes marred Matchday 2 of the inaugural Handball Champions League game between Ndejje University Hoppers and UPDF at the Ndejje University Grounds.

The game was prematurely abandoned by hosts Ndejje in the 21st minute as they were leading 10-9 over armyside UPDF.

The watershed moment happened when the referee gave the host’s fan 2 minutes which meant that Ndejje had to sit out one player for two minutes as stipulated by Handball rules.
It was claimed that the fan insulted the referee for biased officiating.

Ndejje University Hoppers coach Achidri Henry disagreed with the referee’s decision and ordered his players to abandon the game.

UPDF technical team opposed the referee’s decision saying that it also happened to them on Saturday in the Matchday one.

Coach Achidri later drove off which prompted the match Officials to end the game.

According to the federation, UPDF will be crowned the Champions because they were not at fault and also they had superior scores in both legs.

The tournament was meant to be played up to next weekend but because Police and Prisons didn’t turn up, the fixtures had to be adjusted.

In the women’s catergory, Ndejje University Lady Hoppers were the winners of the inaugural Handball Champions League after edging UPDF and Kawanda SSS.

The Handball National League is scheduled to kickoff on 20th June with the fixtures being released after the federation meeting on Wednesday this week.
