The football tournament saw Eddie Bowe battling it out with Abraham Gariseb, Versteende Woud, THF Gaeb and Frans Frederick primary schools at the Hebert Conradie Stadium. Eddie Bowe Primary walked away with N$1 800, while Abraham Gariseb, who came second, walked away with N$1 000. VWPS pocketed N$800 for coming third. The football tournament was played using a league format. Some of the teams that were supposed to take part could not do so, due to financial constraints.
This was confirmed by one of the organisers, Mickey Mahato.
“We are happy that at least one of the teams that are not based in Khorixas made it and took part. It is regretful that most of the teams we expected did not come due to financial constraints. We are looking for sponsorships to assist some of the teams in future, so that they come and play,” he said. Hosts VWPS won the netball competition on Saturday.
They faced stiff competition from Frans Fredrick, Abraham Gariseb and Eddie Bowe. The tournament, played on a league basis, was won by VWPS with 51 points, while Frans Frederick collected 41 points to scoop second place. Abraham Gariseb came third with 39 points.
VWPS won a cash prize of N$1 400, Frans Frederick took home N$1 000, while Abraham Gariseb walked away with N$800.
