WINDHOEK, 20 SEP (NAMPA) Mount View High School and Windhoek Technical High School were on Thursday crowned champions of the Under-15 and U-17 categories of the 2019 Khomas School Sport Region (KSSR) league.
The finals took place at the Namibia Football Association (NFA) Technical Centre in the capital, with the Under-15 players of Mount View beating Jan Jonker High School 1-0.
Meanwhile, the Under-17 clash between Windhoek Technical High School and Jacob Marengo Secondary School ended in 3-1.
The tough encounter between Mount View and Jan Jonker saw the two teams displaying promising talent.
In the end it was centre back defender Ndiili Johannes who became the man of the moment after stealing the show by scoring the winning goal.
Speaking to Nampa after the final, Mount View High School coach Mabena Nuukushu said even though he only had a few days to train the boys, he was impressed by their performance.
Displaying classic football at that age is just amazing, said the coach.
Meanwhile, the first half of the Under-17 final saw Jacob Marengo pushing for goals but failing to convert their chances, resulting in the two teams only scoring one goal each before half-time.
In the second half, Windhoek Technical High School changed their playing tactic by attacking more than defending.
KSSR league administrator, Dave Karuhumba told Nampa he was impressed by the overall performances of the players, adding that he is planning to take the league to other regions.
He added that not all schools have training facilities but they all managed to complete their league matches.
The Khomas School Sport Region league allows schools in the Khomas Region to compete amongst each other in football, netball, rugby, volleyball and basketball in different age categories.
The winners walked away with different prizes including trophies, medals and vouchers.
