Oshimbaba wins Hotline football tourney

09 January 2017 | Sports

The Oshimbaba Football Club (FC) were crowned champions of the annual Hotline Football Club tournament after beating Baloyi FC 3-0 in the final last Saturday.

They took home N$3 000, a floating trophy and gold medals.

The tournament took place from 28 to 31 December 2016 and while initially slated to end on 30 December, had to be extended by a day due to the overwhelming number of entries received.

Baloyi FC, as the runners-up, received N$2500 and silver medals.

The third prize of N$1500 and bronze medals went to Omadenga FC, while Oluno Correctional Services FC took home N$1000 after coming in fourth. In the semi-final encounters, Oshimbaba humiliated Omadenga with a 5-0 defeat, while Baloyi defeated Oluno Correctional Services 5-4 on penalties following their 0-all draw during normal time.

Omadenga beat Oluno Correctional Services 1-0 in the third and fourth position play-off.

Ongenga Constituency-based Hotline Football Club (FC) organised the tournament, in which 18 teams from Ohangwena, Omusati and Oshana Region took part.

Hotline FC was established in 1996 by Nangolo Kondja, who received a trophy at the end of the tournament in recognition of keeping the club alive for the past 20 years.

Kondja said he was happy to receive this trophy and that it was an unexpected honour.

“This is a sign of the commitment that you the organisers have observed in me and I will not cease to assist you in whatever the need might be, I am very delighted,” he said.

He advised youngsters to follow in the footsteps of former players of the Hotline club that played in the Ohangwena Regional Second Division League.

The tournament had several sponsors including Bonifatius Haufiku of 777 Investment CC and Kaudevali Joseph of Kaude Salon and Barbershop.

Former players of Hotline FC were the tournament's main sponsors, having sponsored cash of N$8 000.
