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.
