SKW and the Cohen FC remain firmly in control of the Bank Windhoek Fistball Championship after the weekend’s exciting league action.
SKW 2, under the leadership of former national team captain Michael Baas, were the team of the day in the National A league, taking home the maximum number of points from their three matches.
They convincingly beat the Swakopmund team of the SFC Sport Club by 4 sets to 2, in a match that was interrupted by a rain and hail storm after the second set.
Baas made better use of the wet playing surface than Patrick Schiep, main spiker for SFC who was playing in his last game for the club before returning to Germany.
Later in the day SKW 2 went on to win against SKW 1 in a rather one sided match. In spite of this loss SKW 1 remains log leaders by a three point margin. SKW 2 is second followed by SFC in third place.
Cohen FC 3 tightened their grip on the Bank Windhoek National B league with a straight-sets win on Saturday. The defending champions have yet to lose a set in this year’s competition and are five points ahead of their closest rivals in the league table.
With a win against SKW 3 the coastal boys of SFC 2 managed to jump one spot to second place. Meanwhile, SKW 3 had a bad day with only one win from three matches. This cost them second place and they are now placed third.
The team of the DTS delivered an impressive performance in two of their games and is now fourth with only one point between them and SKW 3. This is an impressive result considering that the DTS team only joined the league a year ago.
U/18 player Kirsten von Biljon garnered the coveted DANRIC Auto Player-of-the-day award with her solid performance for Cohen FC 3 in the National B league.
The Bank Windhoek Fistball Championship will continue in June when the next round of games will be played in Windhoek. Fistball supporters at the coast can, however, look forward to the Coastal Classic, the only indoor fistball tournament in Namibia, which will take place on 12 May 2012.
