Having earlier on humbled Makerere University (MUK) at their own turf, the Kansanga based boys were at it again; this time giving the Kyambogo team a lecture on beer pong, checkers and target shooting.
Playing before their fans, the Kyambogo team gave it their all and almost won the tournament save for a few unforced errors. In the end, second place was good enough for them and with it a cash prize of UGX700,000 as well as an assortment of Black Bell freebies.
The Mukono based Uganda Christian University (UCU) also put in a spirited performance but had to settle for third place and a cash prize of UGX500,000 along with Black Bell goodies.
KIU who took charge of the inaugural tournament right from the onset were almost flawless. Their team of five, accompanied by a few fans never at one time gave into any form of intimidation from the home fans.
As the games concluded and the table showed KIU had cemented its position as the toast of the inaugural Beer Olympics, the team erupted into jubilations as the home team looked on with envy. They were rewarded with UGX1million and will also be given a mega Black Bell party at a venue of their choice.
Makerere University Business School (MUBS) maintained its position at the bottom of the table while MUK only just managed to finish above them.
