Akankwasa, http://cheesejaguar.com/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp-pure.php who also scooped the PAU Youngest Player Award, last year, is participating in the National Open Pool Championship for the first time after being restricted in the previous editions because he was below 18 years.
He started his campaign with a 3-0 win over Ben Wagaba and went on to beat Mutyaba Dennis 3-0 in the second round.
In the quarterfinals, Akankwasa met stiff resistance from Richard Busingye despite a 3-2 win.
In the semis, he played Francis Kamuhonda whom he beat 4-2 before facing Mutibwa Bogere in the finals.
Mutibwa briefly enjoyed a 2-0 lead before the dangerous Akankwasa came from behind to win 4-3.
In Luweero, Scrap Yard’s captain Ali Sebana beat his former teammate Moses Wasswa to qualify for the Regional Championship. The two qualified alongside Little known as Vicent Nyanzi at ‘Bigup’ Club Kasana Luweero.
“Unlike last year, this year’s competition is stiffer because we have tapped into the best at the grassroots; the grand finale stage will surely be graced with Uganda’s best and we expect a good show for the fans,” said Robert Kayanja, the PAU Tournament secretary.
