The three sides posted the most impressive wins on the day ahead of the circuit finale slated for today, Sunday, 3rd October where sides who made it to the quarter finals will vie to win the opening leg of the campaign.

In their Pool A clashes, Kobs dominated all their rivals beating Mongers development side Jjengo 55-00 in their first clash. They later beat Rams 24-07 and later condemned circuit hosts Warriors to a 46-00 defeat in the final group stage game.

Kobs will face Entebbe based Mongers in the first main cup quarter final on Sunday morning.

For Pirates, the Bweyogerere based outfit didn’t concede a point through the group stage, beating Jaguars (46-00), Sailors (45-00) and Impis (00:29) in the process.

Pirates will face Jinja Hippos in the final quarter final of the day. Hippos won one, lost one and one of their matches on Saturday.

The other quarter final matches will be between Heathens against Impis while Buffaloes will come up against Warriors in the other quarter final.

However, Heathens also put in a good show on Saturday, winning all their games. They beat Pacers (66-00), Rhinos (41-00) and Hippos (12:17).

However, sides who didn’t make it to the quarters will compete in classification matches.
