Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Allen Khu­malo Sports Re­porter

BU­L­AWAYO prov­ince girls’ net­ball team qual­i­fied for the 2016 Na­tional Youth Games semi-fi­nals af­ter beat­ing Mata­bele­land South 27-20 on Tues­day.

Team Bu­l­awayo will play their last match of the pool this morn­ing against Man­i­ca­land and later on will face Harare prov­ince in the semi-fi­nals.

“This com­pe­ti­tion is a bit dif­fi­cult be­cause last year there were only six teams, but this year there are eight.

“Last year we played against Harare and we won 25-14 so this time it won’t be an easy match be­cause we know each other’s play. Harare is a bit stronger and ex­pe­ri­enced be­cause they have play­ers who are in the Un­der 20 na­tional team so we ex­pect a tough match,” said Men­free Tanyanyiwa, the Bu­l­awayo net­ball head coach.

On Mon­day, Bu­l­awayo net­ball team won 37- 19 over Mashona­land Cen­tral.

Mean­while, the Bu­l­awayo foot­ball team also man­aged to book a place in the semi-fi­nals af­ter beat­ing Masvingo 1-0 and Man­i­ca­land 2-0 be­fore play­ing a nil all draw with Mid­lands prov­ince.

In vol­ley­ball matches that were played on Mon­day, Bu­l­awayo girls won 2-1 against Mashona­land Cen­tral while in the boys sec­tion Bu­l­awayo won 2-1 over Mashona­land Cen­tral. — @khumza­llen
