Baby Warriors off to victory

19 June 2017 | Sports

The national under-17 side have acclimatized well in Germany and won their first game 3 -1 against Homburcher SV under 18s on Saturday at the Kaiserau Sports Centre.

The boys departed for their bi-annual Westphalia tour on Wednesday and on Saturday got their first taste of German opposition against Homburcher SV.

The team coached by Pauhl Malembu conceded an early goal but fought back well to draw level before halftime through captain Eldery Morgan.

They carried the moment into the second half and it was not long before Jovane Narib added a second and Goodwin Eiseb made it safe when he scored the third for a hard fought 3-1 win on tour for the Baby Warriors.

Coach Malembu was satisfied with the response from the boys and looks forward to the rest of the tour with the boy's next game coming on Wednesday against their host Westphalia under-17.

“The boys listened to instructions very well and despite it being a tough game, they did well under pressure and this is the objective of the tour, to make sure they can handle the pressure going forward and with more games to play it can only get better.

“Results are important too for their confidence but overall, it is about their maturity and character strengthening” says coach Malembu.
