Cohen Fistball Club 1 (CFC 1) won the first round of the Bank Windhoek National Fistball League, after they defeated hosts Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) over the weekend.

CFC 1 ended on 12 points followed by SKW 1 and CFC 2 on ten and eight points, respectively. As expected, current champions, CFC 1, who have been in exceptional form, started off as the stronger team in Group A. They swept aside Swakopmund Fistball Club 2 (SFC 2), Deutscher Turn- und Sportverein (DTS) and CFC 3.

However, SKW 2, also part of Group A, refused to be dominated by CFC 1. They came back stronger and inflicted CFC 1's first defeat since June 2018.

SKW 2, however went down 2-1 to DTS in their previous game. CFC 3 then beat DTS 2-1. SKW 2 beat CFC 3 and SFC 2 and secured second place in Group A by winning one more set compared to other contenders in the group. In third place are CFC 3, followed by DTS and SFC 2.

SKW 1 dominated Group B as they won all their matches with a 3-0 scoreline. Behind them were CFC 2, who could have won all their matches except for a tough encounter against SKW 1 in which they eventually succumbed. SFC 1 and CFC 4 finished third and fourth in the group.

Cohen's second team put up an impressive performance against SKW 2 in the third and fourth place match.

CFC 3 lost 2-0 against SFC 1 in the fifth and sixth place battle. DTS, CFC 4 and SFC 2 competed for the remaining seventh and ninth spots in the round-robin stages.



Finale

Spectators were offered a high-quality final between CFC 1 and SKW 1.

SKW 1 got off to a better start in the game and quickly gained ground.

CFC 1 had to call a timeout to regroup after trailing 7-3 in the first set. The decision paid dividends as CFC 1 started to recover some ground but eventually lost as SKW 1 pressed harder to win the set. CFC 1 came back stronger in the second set with an improved performance, but had difficulty finishing the set with a score of 10-5. However, their main attacker Rico Kühnle-Kreitz brought the set to an end with a powerful serve to bring the score to 11-9 in favour of CFC 1.

In the third set, the reigning champions left SKW 1 with no chance and won 11-4. The fourth set was exciting with spectacular rallies and terrific defensive action.

CFC 1 once again kept the upper-hand and finished the set 14-12, winning the game 3-1. SKW 1 defender Gernot Helm was named player of the day.
