The Spes Bona Alfa Romeo Fiat Inline Hockey Tournament began on Wednesday afternoon as the puck was dropped punctually at 16h00 to an evenly matched game between Kamikaze and Badgers in the 8 & under division. The close 1-0 game in favour of Kamikaze was a fitting start to what will be five continuous days of exciting inline hockey at the Cazadores rink. This first match-up was followed by 10 additional games during a brisk evening of play between the three Windhoek-based inline hockey clubs.
