Uganda national U-21 netball team, She pearls has been eliminated from the 2017 Netball youth World Cup currently going on in Gaborone, Botswana.

The She Pearls lost their quarter final game to Fiji 39-37 this (Thursday) afternoon to dash their hopes of making it to the medal bracket.

Despite a stiff form display in group stages where they emerged on top of Group C to qualify for the quarters, Coach James Bogere’s team tried to fight tooth and nail only to exit the championships on a two goals difference in the knockout quarters
