The speedy Kamsieb was the into an empty net, to leave his side tied at one-all at halftime. Both teams created a number of chances between them and none was able to convert, with the match ending one-all. BA coach Lucky Richter felt his team should have utilised their out Chiefs’ goalkeeper for denying them several goal-scoring chances. “Our objective remains the same. We want to narrow the gap between us and African Stars on the log and try and win the league this year. They did us a favour by drawing but obviously, we failed to take advantage,” he said. His opposite number, Fillemon ‘Cascas’ Angula, expressed delight with the point they picked up as the team playing away from home. “It was our plan to defend deep, stop them from playing in counter with our speedy players and it worked well. Our objective remains the same, we want to collect all the points we can possibly get our hands on,” he added. Meanwhile, Richter had to be escorted out of the stadium by the police after several Black Africa fans blocked the dressing room exit at the stadium demanding he resigns with immediate effect. The fans are blaming the coach for the team’s poor showing on Saturday, saying that during the mid-season beak he released several experienced players who had helped BA win four consecutive titles. In the other match played at the University of Namibia (Unam) FC, played to a goalless draw with Tura Magic FC in a match where both coaches admitted that their players had performed poorly.

James Britz of Tura Magic also felt that his team made basic tactical mistakes, saying based on the performance of both teams, the draw was a fair result. – Nampa NPL Weekend results: Thursday, 15 February African Stars 0-0 Orlando Pirates Friday, 16 February Tigers 4-2 Citizens FC Saturday, 17 February Blue Waters 1-3 Mighty Gunners Eleven Arrows 2-0 Rundu Chiefs Unam 0-0 Tura Magic Young African 2-0 Chief Santos Black Africa 1-1 Young Chiefs Civics 1-0 Life Fighters Sunday, 18 February Black Africa 4-1 Chief Santos Unam 0-0 Tigers Young African 0-0 Young Chiefs Eleven Arrows 2-2 Mighty Gunners Africa Stars 0-0 Life Fighters Blue Waters 2-0 Rundu Chiefs Paracyclists win medals in South Africa WINDHOEK The Namibia Paralympic Committee (NPC)’s wheelchair and hand-cycling team won a gold and silver medal at the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge in George, South Africa yesterday.
