Sparta Hockey Club hosted its annual 6-a-side hockey tournament fun day.
The fun day is held as a fundraiser for the club, to cover traveling and accommodation costs of the club’s players during the annual national hockey league season.
Seven teams competed in the fun day, namely the Dream Team, Goals Galore, Hotnos 2.0, Blue Line Babes, Walvis Braaiers, Untouchaballs, and Team Rugby.
Games lasted 20 minutes and the golden rule of the fun day is that you could score from anywhere on the field.
The first game of the day saw Team Rugb’, which mainly consisted of players from the Walvis Bay Rugby Club, taking on Walvis Braaiers.
Things were looking good for Walvis Braaiers, but Team Rugby made their mark beating them 6-4. The Untouchaballs made big statements and scored 11 against 1 goal recorded by Goals Galore. Hotnos 2.0 met Dream Team in their first match and it seemed like there would be very little competition for them on the day.
New faces were also encountered during the day and the Blue Line Babes showed there are some unearthed talents in the area.
Hotnos 2.0 scooped first place for the day, whereas Team Rugby received second place and the Untouchaballs finished in third place.
The top goal scorer for the day award went to Polito Hendricks and Tannon Groenewald, who both scored 11 goals.
The men’s player of the day was Tannon Groenewald and women’s player of the day was Estelle de Beer.
De Beer, Sparta Club president, thanked everyone who entered as well as Namibian Breweries and Sparta United Recreational Club for the prizes sponsored this year.
