Khomas eye cup win

17 April 2019 | Sports

The Khomas under-19 regional netball team feel they have a very good chance of going all the way in The Namibian Newspaper Cup in Mariental this weekend.

The competition starts on 19 April and ends on 22 April, and will see all 14 regions represented in what is Namibia's biggest football and netball competition for the country's youth.

Khomas netball vice-captain Amaryllis Lehanie said looking at their preparations and team composition, they feel they can win the cup.

“We really have been working very hard this past month and we are improving every day. The team spirit, communication and telepathy on and off the field are great and we think we might win it,” a confident Lehanie said. Her teammate Charlane Shaanika concurred and said they are ready to face any team.

“We had a few friendly matches against league teams and we fared well; we are ready to fly the flag of the region high,” she said.

Khomas are drawn in Group B with Otjozondjupa, Ohangwena, Erongo, Oshana, Omusati and hosts Hardap.

Kavango East were crowned the inaugural netball champions in 2018, after beating Erongo 39-33 in Katima Mulilo.
