Fistball Fever Rises

The fourth round of the Bank Windhoek Fistball Championship is set to produce some exciting action on Saturday, 16 August.

The teams of the Bank Windhoek National A and National B leagues are set to meet at the SKW Fistball fields in Olympia with the first games starting at 8h00.

With only the first three teams of each league qualifying to play for the championship, the pressure to do well in the last round of the league games is mounting.

League and cup winners SKW 1 are well in control of the Bank Windhoek National A league as they are four points ahead of their nearest rivals, CFC 1 and SKW 2 while they have a game in hand.

With spiker Arend von Stryk set to return to the team after battling with various injuries since the start of the season, SKW 1 are the favourites to retain first place in the league standings which would automatically qualify them for the championship play-off in September.

Cohen FC 1 and SKW 2 are in a tight race for second place on the log. The teams are equal on points and will meet on Saturday morning in what promises to be an exciting match.

The winner will almost certainly end the day in second place. Neither SFC 1 nor Cohen FC 2 have a chance to reach one of the top three places and will be battling it out at the bottom of the table.

Cohen FC 3 will have their work cut out to remain at the top of the log in the Bank Windhoek National A league.

They will face both second placed SFC 2 and third placed DTS, who both suffered narrow defeats to the defending champions in previous encounters. Although SFC 2 is four points behind the log leaders, they still have an outside chance of taking first place.

The battle for third place will also be heated as DTS and SKW 3, who are both level on 15 points, will clash on Saturday afternoon. The team that finishes third still has a chance to qualify for the championship final in September, but the fourth placed team does not.
