Goal drought at Oshakati — The Namibian

Goal drought at Oshakati — The Namibian

OMAHEKE and Oshikoto, Oshana, and Erongo continued their goal shyness and only one victory in six matches of The Namibian Newspaper Cup at Oshakati Independence Stadium.

Standard Bank Namibia powered the popular netball and football competitions after a two year hiatus caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Match №5 was won by Oshana captain Erastus Joe, who took home the player of the game prize. He scored a penalty in the first half to give the hosts a half-time advantage.

Erongo, however, came out firing and equalised with an acrobatic volley by Mbeurora Murananganda, a lively forward midway through the second period.

Despite their tireless efforts, Omaheke & Oshikoto couldn’t score in their goalless tie. Both sides were victorious.

“This wasn’t the results we expected. At the end of the day both teams gave their best, so we will try again tomorrow,” said Oshikoto defender Bright Augumeb who was voted the best player of the match.

Uerikondjera Kazaona, Omaheke’s head coach, was less pragmatic about the outcome after his team failed to collect all three points during the entertaining encounter.

Ex-Brave Gladiator skipper Kasaona, the only woman coach in this football competition, regretted her team’s failures and demanded better.

“Luck wasn’t on our side. Although we had the advantage in terms of winning the ball and getting to the last third, the finishing was not up to our standards. We need to improve our finishing if we are to make it to the final third of the tournament. We’ll go back to the drawing board and try to improve our scoring for the matches ahead,” she said.

//Kharas beat Kavango West by 1–0 today to kick-start the title defense. Zambezi then drew 1–1 in Otjozondjupa’s match. This score line was also replicated in matches between Omusati, Ohangwena and Hardap against Kunene.
