Police team deals defence force a devastating blow in volleyball finals
The men’s first team of the Khomas Nampol Volleyball Club showed the soldiers who’se boss in the finals of the recent Namibia Volleyball Federation Cup Championship. The women’s division was won by the SKW ladies team narrowly beating the police team.
The action started with the game for third place in the women’s division where the teams from Oshikoto Nampol VC and Khomas Nampol VC took to the court. After some good volleyball on both sides, the greater experience and individual class of the Khomas Nampol women’s team proved to be too much for Oshikoto Nampol. A convincing 3:0 (25:15, 25:19, 25:10) saw the Khomas police women secure third place and therefore a spot on the podium as well as a handsome prize money of N$6000.
Followed by this, the men’s team of the NAVY VC from Walvis Bay faced Katima Mulilo’s UNAM Campus team. Although NAVY VC put up a great fight, they could not prevent the team from Zambezi to cruise to a comfortable 3:0 (25:17, 25:19, 25:17) victory in the end.
The SKW women and Khomas Nampol VC men’s teams were crowned the 2017 Bank Windhoek NVF Cup Champions at the Namibia Volleyball Federation Cup finals, which were played at UNAM’s Main Campus in Windhoek.
In the earlier stages of the tournament, four of the strongest teams that had advanced to the final round locked horns one last time to contest the spots on the podium. After two competitive rounds in Swakopmund and Katima Mulio, the final bash was set for Windhoek.
As well as taking home N$6000 in prize money, Katima Mulilo’s UNAM team also boasted various individual player awards. UNAM’s Nchindo Sinvula led his team as captain and once again displayed a stunning performance with powerful outside spikes. He was also awarded the prestigious award for the most valuable player of the three tournament rounds.
Both winning teams won gold medals as well as the prize money of N$10,000 and a trophy. The second placed teams of NDF (both women and men) were left with a respectable N$8,000 and the silver medal.
