FISTBALL lovers will on Saturday be treated to top-flight action of the final Bank Windhoek showdown at the DTS sport field here in the capital.
Bank Windhoek communication practitioner, Andre le Roux said the playoffs and finals of the Bank Windhoek Fistball League will this Saturday determine this year’s champion.
Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW 1) is facing Cohen Fistball Club (CFC 2) in the semi-final of the national A League.
The defending champion will be the definite favourite to win this match as their counterparts only managed to win three sets the entire season against them. Cohen 2 must be in top form to beat their opponents.
Cohen 2 managed to be log leaders after the fourth round. SKW 1, with all their experience, however, defeated them last year in a deservingly fashion in the final.
He said this year, CFC 1 do not want to be on the losing end again and want to end their 21 years of title drought. The final is set for 16H15.
It is expected that in the national B League the outcome will be more interesting. In the first match the fourth placed DTS will play against the fifth placed CFC 4. The winner will face the loser of the semi-final. In the semi-final the fistballers from the coast will challenge the record holder CFC 3.
Swakopmund Fistball Club (SFC) played a brilliantly this season with the likes of Nikolai Hof and Christian Knobloch and they are set to qualify for the final. It will be difficult for CFC 3 this time around as they play against a much younger and agile team. In the final, SKW 1, is ready for their encounter against yet undecided opponents. Not only do they have a strong attack with father and son Baas, but also showcase a solid defence, even so, they must pull off their A-game to seal the deal against the team that will win the semi-final.
