They say when it rains on your parade, you dance in it; we certainly did on Saturday. Biashara newspaper hosted their first-ever soccer and netball tournament for 2020. After so many days of training and hard work, the teams show-cased great sportsmanship in a short period.
This was a memorable competition and we congratulate All-Stars soccer team and 11 Arrows netball team on their well-deserved victories which underlined the importance of preparedness, teamwork and togetherness in both football and netball game.
A total of four (4) took part in this competition. More teams meant greater variety in formations and approaches, but for those intent on attack, beating the defensive block proved an uphill challenge. In a company of SFC, NUST and Genesis FC, All-Stars Football Club emerged a winner of this competition when they pulled a five-star performance from the beginning of the tournament. NUST soccer team were the runner-up while SFC took the 3rd position. Due to the setup of the completion, the winner had to take all, so All-Stars walked away with a prize of N$1200.
- All-stars- N$1 200
Congratulations to the 11 Arrows netball team who were named the top netballers to compete in the Biashara news Tournament 2020. Go Monate came as runner-up while NUST scooped the third position.
- 11 Arrows- N$ 2000 + trophy
