The FNB Classic Clashes created yet another opportunity for young and upcoming sports stars to showcase their talent this weekend.

The powerhouse soccer teams of St George's Diocesan School and St Paul's College took to the field in an epic match on Friday at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek, where the former won 2-1.

The school, which is celebrating its centenary this year, brought their band, energy, and determination to make their school proud. The first half had the learners of the respective schools on the edge of their seats. St George's led the game 2-0 after the first half thanks to goals by Fillipo Micheletti and Ndapama Humutengela. During the second half, the St Paul's team regrouped and came back with new fire, with midfielder Javee Mujoro scoring the only goal in the second half.

St George's right-wing Zander McLune was awarded the man of the match after his great performance during the game.

Netball and rugby

In other Classic Clashes news, sportsmanship reigned supreme at the Delta Secondary School (DSSW) grounds on Saturday, as netball and rugby teams battled it out.

The DSSW's u-15 rugby team was victorious over Windhoek Technical High School, winning 22-12.

The school's coach, Victor Izaaks, said that the challenge his boys faced was that their opponents were much bigger in terms of size.

“The team had to go in with all heart and aggression which made them more tired than expected,” he said. However, the team made it through to the quarterfinals, which Izaaks says is a milestone achievement. “I'm proud of the boys as we didn't have a chance to reach this stage for a long time.”

HTS captain Precious Hummel said that there is room for improvement. “There was a lack of communication, we need to speak to each other effectively,” he said.

Jan Möhr's u-19 netball team won against DSSW with a score of 25-9. Captain Vejaa Katunohange said that the team took some tips from their opponents. “We learned from Delta that even though you are on the losing side, not to give up as they fought until the end and had great teamwork,” she said.
