Newcomers Tigers lost their two opening games as the new season of the National Volleyball League continued at Old Kampala.
Tigers were beaten by KAV-C on Saturday before falling to UCU on Sunday.
The Nsambya-based team Head Coach Damulira Malik said his side picked lessons from both matches and the results come as a caution to his boys on what they should expect in such a competitive tier.
“It wasn’t a good start to the league, losing both games is terrible for our side but we have to learn from our mistakes knowing we were promoted to a serie which is full of competitive teams, and every mistake we made today cost us a point,” said Ddamulira.
“At this level, you need a very high level of experience to make a point especially when scores go to game point, you need to be so confident to turn that score to your side and we lacked the experience to do that.”
Damulira’s charges put up the required resistance against UCU, winning the second set 16-25, but failed to score maximum points again.
The other new entrants Sky also lost to UCU (Saturday) and Ndejje (Sunday).
In the women’s league, Sport-S beat National Club Championship and new entrants OBB 3-1 to ignite an unbeaten run following their 3-0 victory against KAVC last weekend.
