Aaron K Tjatindi Cup champs crowned

12 November 2019 | Sports

Sesfontein All Stars soccer club and Epukiro netball club were on Sunday crowned Aaron K Tjatindi Cup winners after a three-day tournament held in Khomasdal in the capital.

The tournament, which included soccer and netball, started on Friday and saw 13 teams participating in the N$40 000 competition.

Sesfontein All Stars were crowned soccer champions, after outsmarting Opuwo All Stars 2-0.

Sesfontein took home N$13 000, a trophy and 20 gold medals, while Opuwo All Stars walked away with N$7 000 and 20 silver medals.

Okakarara and Epupa each received N$4 000 for finishing third and fourth, respectively.

Netball champions, Epukiro, pocketed N$6 000, a trophy and 20 gold medals, after beating Otjinene 39-38.

Otjinene received N$3 000 and silver medals, with semi-finalists Omongua and Opuwo each claiming N$1 500.

Tuisika Karutjaiva of Sesfontein was top goal-scorer, Boy-Boy Kahiru of Opuwo emerged as the player of the tournament, while Katjijapaa Tjikuara was named goalkeeper of the tournament.

In netball, Tjikari Pura of Opuwo was named top shooter, while Uri Katjatenja of Otjinene was named player of the tournament.

Chairman of the organising committee, Alphons Tjatindi, said it was their first time hosting a competition of this magnitude. He said he was thankful for having successfully hosted the sport tournament.

Tjatindi said he did not expect the large turnout of spectators.

He added that since the new Namibia Premier League (NPL) season is yet to start, sport supporters are hungry for events. Sesfontein coach Felix Tjiseua said he has no words to express his happiness.

It was his first time coaching a club to a final and winning it.

“I dedicate this trophy to the people at home,” he said.
