National Fistball league to resume this weekend
The teams of the National A league and the National B league will meet in the third round of the games at the SKW Fistball fields in Windhoek. The games start at 08h30.
The reigning champions, SKW 1 will be back in full force after playing the last games without veteran spiker, Michael Baas. The team is currently in second place on the Bank Windhoek National A league log.
Meanwhile, first placed, SKW 2, will look for opportunities to extend their five point lead in order to improve their chances of taking home the championship in September. Surprise package, Cohen FC 1, will take heart from the last league outing they played when the Windhoek-based team put on a good show to take home the full nine points from three matches. If the team can hold their current form, they might be able to break SKW’s dominance at the top of the table. Cohen FC will however still be without U18 national team spiker, Tristan Minz, who is not fully fit after picking up an injury six weeks ago.
The Bank Windhoek National B league remains the forte of Cohen FC 3, who have dominated the league for the past couple of seasons. With Peter V. Steinkopff in attack and U18 national coach, Andi Minz in defence, Cohen FC 3 are yet to lose a game this season. They are well ahead in the log, leading their nearest rival, Cohen FC4, by seven points.
Cohen FC 4 were the talk of the day when they managed to jump from last to second place on the log. Chances are good that they will be able hold on to this position. With a number of quality players in their ranks, like former national team spiker, Wilfried Hacker, Cohen FC 4 is formidable in attack and has a number of promising youngsters in their defensive line-up. In third place, is SKW 3 who are tied on points with DTS but have a better points difference.
All eyes will be on the ten U18 national team players. This is their last league before they depart for Austria to take part in the U18 European championships and an international training camp organised by the International Fistball Association. The team will leave Namibia on 10 July 2013 which does not leave Minz with a lot of time to finalise his preparations.
