After taking the first set 25-16, Soweto could not hold on as they lost 25-10, 25-12 and 27-25.

The above four teams are in Group B alongside St Elizabeth Girls also from Uganda.

Meanwhile, it was a dark day for Kenya in handball except for St Joseph Girls Kitale and Mbooni Boys who bagged a win.

St Joseph Girls Kitale saw off Kiziguro from Rwanda 24-19 in Group B where St. Joseph 's Miranga from Kenya lost 39-16 to Gombe from Uganda.

In boy’s handball, Mbooni hit Bombo Army from Uganda 27-18 as Kakungulu from Uganda picked a 31-23 win over Kenya’s Hospital Hill. Manyatta also lost 22-33 ES Kigoma from Rwanda.
