Seven weeks,14 teams, and one champion. Namibia Football Association Technical Centre hosted the final of the third and fourth place playoffs of the NFA Women Super Cup yesterday.
After a three-year absence the Namibia Football Association Women’s Super Cup bounced back to action late last year with twelve teams battling for the silverware.
According to Diina Shitula the executive member of the NFA Women Super League the competition has been used as a platform to prepare the physical and mental strength of players for competitions like the COSAFA Women’s Cup 2021 and the CAF Women’s Club Championship.
The final of the Cup featured Tura Magic Ladies and Galz & Goals who both secured their qualification after defeating V-Power Angels FC and Khomas Nampol respectively in the semi-finals. What this final remembered me was the 2019 Namibia Women Super League Championship. Oh yes, the same team clashed against each other and Magic dismantled a helpless Galz and Goals FC by 4-1 to be crowned champions of the Skorpion Zinc Women Super League.
A determined Tura Magic disappointed Coach Ronnie Hoxobeb team Galz and Goals with Memory Ngonda strike in the 11th minute being the only goal in an exciting and competitive final. Former Gintra Universitetas winger Adams Thomalina from Tura was awarded the player of the match award.
Finding the net continued to be easy as 25-year old Anna Shikusho underlined her status winning the top goalscorer of the league scoring 15 goals over 6 weeks. Her clubmate Lovisa Mulunga was awarded the best defender of the tournament.
Ronnie Hoxobeb the coach of Galz and Goals walked away with the coach of the tournament award. In the third and 4th play playoffs Khomas Napol thumbed V-Power by five goals to one.
