Caprivi Secondary School scoops Youth Cup

THE Caprivi Senior Secondary School defeated Braunfels Secondary School of Kunene Region 3-1 in a penalty shoot-out to clinch the inaugural Coca Cola Youth Cup at Kuisebmund Stadium on Saturday.

The two teams drew one-all, in a rather disappointing match, that lacked skill, flair and imagination. Braunfels’ pint-sized striker, Abraham Oreseb took the Caprivi defence to the task as he on several occasions exposed his opponents, but goals were not to materialise.Although Braunfels kept pushing forward, Caprivi defence stood strong in a bid to avoid any slip-ups.In the 40th minute, Braunfels’ midfielder Dennis Narib took a volley some 15 yards from their opponents’ goal line to net home his side’s first goal.The Braunfels boys were encouraged by their lead and pressed for more goals but that was not to be as the side from the north-east decided not to concede any more goals.As the match drew towards the end, Caprivi equalized through the boot of midfielder Reagan Nyambe.Nyambe could have snatched the winner minutes later, but a poor judgment stretched the match to penalty shoot-outs.Caprivi took home N$70 000, a trophy and gold medals while runners-up Braunfels pocketed N$30 000 and silver medals.Third placed Ponhofi Secondary School from Ohangwena region received N$15 000 and bronze medals.Herman Gmeiner Technical High School ended fourth and received N$7 500 as consolation.- NampaBraunfels’ pint-sized striker, Abraham Oreseb took the Caprivi defence to the task as he on several occasions exposed his opponents, but goals were not to materialise.Although Braunfels kept pushing forward, Caprivi defence stood strong in a bid to avoid any slip-ups.In the 40th minute, Braunfels’ midfielder Dennis Narib took a volley some 15 yards from their opponents’ goal line to net home his side’s first goal.The Braunfels boys were encouraged by their lead and pressed for more goals but that was not to be as the side from the north-east decided not to concede any more goals.As the match drew towards the end, Caprivi equalized through the boot of midfielder Reagan Nyambe.Nyambe could have snatched the winner minutes later, but a poor judgment stretched the match to penalty shoot-outs.Caprivi took home N$70 000, a trophy and gold medals while runners-up Braunfels pocketed N$30 000 and silver medals.Third placed Ponhofi Secondary School from Ohangwena region received N$15 000 and bronze medals.Herman Gmeiner Technical High School ended fourth and received N$7 500 as consolation.- Nampa
