Kuisebmond Secondary School (KSS) defeated S.I. !Gobs Secondary School 3-2 in a thrilling FBN Classic Clashes soccer match at the Kuisebmond Stadium in Walvis Bay.
Man of the match Mbakondja Tjahikika scored the winner from a free kick in the dying minutes of the match. Tjahikika, who earned himself N$300 and a trophy for his exploits, bent his free kick into the top corner of the net.
KSS took the lead through a goal from Ben Muharukua who later received a red card. Gergio van Wyk made it 2-0 from the penalty spot before halftime.
The Omaruru-based S.I. !Gobs had other intentions. The visitors scored twice through Denzil Boys, who slotted home a free kick and a penalty to tie the game (2-2).
KSS’ head coach Gideon Gariseb said the match was good motivation for his charges.
“Next weekend we are going to Gobabis to take part in an under 20 school tournament. The win is good for the guys. It was the sixth Classic Clashes win for us. Our opponents had good athletic players who are very physical and can run. My boys are not that physical. We only started playing as a team last month. We are going back to work hard before our next game."
S.I !Gobs Secondary School’s coach Armstrong Paul said his team will go back to the drawing board.
“Kuisebmond Secondary School played a very good game. We came back strongly in the second half but it was not enough. We will work to improve on our performance.”
