A young Namibian team gave a promising performance to hold Botswana to a 1-1 draw in an international soccer friendly in Maun on Wednesday evening.
The Brave Warriors were rather fortunate to take the lead on 33m when winger Eslin Kamuhanga shunned the fair play rule and lobbed the ball over the keeper into the net. When a Botswana player went down injured, they kicked the ball out, expecting Namibia to return the ball from the throw in, but Kamuhanga caught them by surprise to lob the ball into the net.
National rugby coach Johan Diergaardt has made two changes to the starting lineup of the Welwitschias team that will play Free State in Windhoek on Saturday.
Both changes are in the backline, with Llewellyn Winckler replacing Attie du Plessis at centre, while Jurie van Tonder replaces Eugene Jantjies at scrumhalf.
Jantjies moves to the substitutes bench which sees a few more changes. Lock forward Munee Tjiueza returns to the bench in place of Henk Franken, while fullback Justin Nel and centre Antony Jevu come in for Tinus Venter and Llewellyn Winckler respectively.
Branden Grace is taking a long hard look at the R190 200 on offer for the winner of this week’s MTC Namibia PGA Championship and thinking how it will take him closer to the top five on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit.
Grace is one of the favourites for the R1.2-million Sunshine Tour event played in Namibia’s capital on the 6,570-metre par-71 Windhoek Country Club.
The Stimorol National Open Water Ski Championships will be held from 25 to 27 March at the Von Bach Dam close to Okahandja.
The president of the Namibia Water Ski Association (NWSA), Martin Schmidt announced this at a press briefing in Windhoek on Wednesday.
“We expect at least 40 skiers and 20 wakeboarders to take part in this event as well as about 20 officials who will ratify all scores to the International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation (IWWF),” Schmidt said.
“We will also expect many supporters from both Namibia and South Africa to attend,” he added.
