Former champions Nemostars and KAVC are on the verge of elimination in the Aziz Damani National Volleyball League semifinal playoffs.
The two sides lost on day one of the post-season in Nsambya on Sunday. Nemostars’ fate will be decided tonight at the Lugogo indoor stadium in game two of the best-of-three series while KAVC must win when they play Sport-S tomorrow.
Leading 14-12 in the decisive set of game one, Nemostars looked like they were headed to their first victory over UCU Doves this season.
However, UCU coach Nason Bwesigye called for a time-out. And it worked. The Doves made three unanswered points to make it 15-14 and Nemostars had to do the chasing, like has been the case against the same team this year.
Bwesigye’s troops held their nerves to take the decider 17-15 and leave their opponents in disbelief.
