Mukono High School skipper Fauzia Najjemba was on fire with five goals as her team scored nine past Tanzania’s Kihesa in their last group stage game on Tuesday evening at the ongoing East African Secondary School games in Arusha Tanzania.

The triumph makes Najjemba the top scorer of the tournament with nine goals in four games, Elizabeth Nakigozi scored a brace while Ronah Nantege, Odalu immaculate scored a goal each to make it nine on the day.

The win ensured Mukono High go top of group A with nine points but they are not yet sure of the semi-final slot yet.

In other game from the same group, Kenya’s Nyakach struggled to beat St Noa 1-0, a margin which took them to six points, the same as Noa with a game to go.

The St Noa win complicated matters in Group A, with all the three not sure for an automatic semi-final slot.

Mukono High boast of an eleven-goal difference in four games but will have to wait for Wednesday’s ties; St Noa vs Arch Bishop, together with Nyakach vs Kihesa which will be the last games for the four teams.

A win for St Noa with a three-goal margin against Bishop will send Mukono high into second place on the log.

Another win for Nyakach with a margin of eleven goals will see Mukono High drop to third in the group which might see them miss this year’s semi-finals.

Wednesday fixtures
Nyakach vs Kihesa
St Noa vs Arch Bishop
Kawempe vs Itigo
