Fistball Champs go into second round
Fistball action will resume this coming Saturday when the Bank Windhoek National Fistball League continues at the SKW Fistball fields in Windhoek.
Both the National A and B Leagues will be played at the same venue and the first games are scheduled to start at 08h00.
After the first round of games, defending champions, SKW 2, are two points ahead of rivals, Cohen FC 1 and SKW 1.
This weekend, the defending champions will, however, have to battle it out without inspirational captain and spiker, Michael Baas.
The log leaders will have to rely on Arend von Stryk who is very strong in attacks.
Although Von Stryk only started playing fistball a couple of years ago, he already has a number of international caps to his name.
He will, however, need to pull all the stops in the game against SKW 1 if his team is to remain top of the log.
Otherwise, this could open an opportunity for the other teams to narrow the gap on the log leaders.
Cohen FC 2 and SFC 1 are at the bottom of the table and they will once again find the going tough against their more experienced and skilled opponents.
Cohen FC 3 remains in control of the Bank Windhoek National B league.
After the first round of games, this Windhoek-based team tops the log and has one game on hand on its nearest rival, DTS.
Cohen will aim to improve their standing, while third placed, SKW 3, will have its work cut out should they want to take second spot from DTS.
All eyes will be on the Swakopmund-based, SFC 2 team, which won the season opening tournament in February in a convincing manner, but has since failed to perform.
The coastal team had to endure a number of injuries during the first round of games, which had a severe impact on their performance, leaving them last on the log with one point from four games.
The league meeting will end with a prize giving ceremony on Saturday evening, which will be hosted by Cohen FC.
The DANRIC Auto player of the day will be announced along with further details on the Men’s World Club Championships, which will be played in Windhoek on 12 and 13 October 2013.
The World Championship event will attract top South American and European club teams.
