In a commanding display, the City Oilers clinched a resounding 74-38 victory over Our Saviour in the latest fixture of the National Basketball League, held on Wednesday at Lugogo.

The Oilers, buoyed by their recent 73-38 triumph over Power in the league opener last Friday, entered the matchup with formidable momentum.

Despite Our Saviour’s promising start to the season with three consecutive victories, they were unable to withstand the relentless assault from the seasoned Oilers.

Despite the absence of point guard Jimmy Enabu, the Oilers swiftly took control of the game, establishing a commanding 23-10 lead in the first quarter.

By halftime, they had widened the gap to a formidable 43-19 advantage, signaling their intent to maintain their dominance in pursuit of a record-extending 10th consecutive league title.

Undeterred by the departure of coach Mande Juruni, who recently joined the Keplar University basketball team in Rwanda, the Oilers showcased their depth and resilience on the court.

Titus Lual spearheaded the charge with an impressive double-double performance, tallying 11 points and 14 rebounds.

He was ably supported by Fayed Bbale, who contributed 14 points, along with Edrine Walujjo and Ivan Muhwezi, who chipped in with 13 and 10 points respectively.

In stark contrast, Our Saviour struggled to make inroads against the formidable Oilers defense, with no player reaching double digits in scoring.

Moses Mugisha led the scoring for Our Saviour with a modest 9 points, as the team grappled with a paltry 19% shooting accuracy from the field.

Despite outrebounding the Oilers 61-52, Our Saviour faltered at the free-throw line, converting just 2 of their 16 attempts.
