Stand Up for the Champions!
The match, which was played at the Blantyre Youth Centre, had a fair patronage from the Polytechnic students within.
Speaking after the match, the jovial Poly Wildcats captain Robert Matambo explained that the journey to the final was not easy, but through determination, hard work and team spirit among the players they have managed to beat teams and win matches, which has led to this victory.
“We made it to the top of the league and qualified for the playoffs which meant that we needed to play against the team on number 4 on the league table,” the Captain explained.
Matambo further outlined that the team won 2-1 in a 3 series playoffs against Crazy Warriors and proceeded where they battled it out against Magang’a in the final.
The Polytechnic Sports Administrator Chifundo Tenthani hailed the team for the achievement and thanked the Polytechnic Management for the support rendered to the sports fraternity even amid challenges.
To show determination and commitment, the team had to stay on and train even after when the college was closed.
The Polytechnic Student Union (PSU) Sports Director, Blessings Phiri expressed his excitement on yet another trophy added to the Polytechnic Sports desk after the football team also won the Thumbs Up tournament earlier this month.
“I am very proud of the teams for their hardworking spirit which is not easy because they have to train and at the same time concentrate on their studies” Phiri said.
Currently the Sozobal Tournament does not have sponsors so the Wildcats have just received a trophy.
