Sadolin Mongers secured their third victory of the season following their vital 26-15 win against Pirates at the dreaded Entebbe Rugby Grounds on Saturday.

The victory came in handy after Mongers settled for a 10-10 draw with Heathens in the outing the previous weekend at the same home that saw new signing Simon Wakabi perform to expectation for the first draw of this season.

At the house of Pain again, the home side was at it as Monger’s Adrian Wasswa kicked through the uprights for three penalties and a brace of conversions to spur his side to victory against Pirates.

Andrew Olweny crashed over for their only try, a revelation of consistency in terms of supporting his side so far along with Tamale who made it to the score sheet with a penalty.

The result further condemned Pirates to the bottom of the Nile Special premiership log having lost their fourth match in five the side has featured in.

Pirates headed for this encounter on the back of an essential 7-12 win they snatched off Toyota Buffaloes at Kyadondo, their only victory this season.

And although Daniel Canowira has been consistent, putting in man of the match performances for two outings in a row for Pirates, the second failed to pay off. He touched for Pirates second try that was converted by Coach player Anthony Kinene.
