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

NEWLY formed Tsholot­sho Pi­rates Net­ball Queens’ coach Sehliso Mh­langa be­lieves their 3-66 loss to High­landers on Sun­day had pre­pared them for what to ex­pect in the Bu­l­awayo Net­ball League next sea­son.

Tsholot­sho played a friendly match against High­landers as a pre­req­ui­site for reg­is­ter­ing with the Bu­l­awayo Net­ball League.

“We had a re­ally tough match as we lost by a huge mar­gin. Al­though it was a so­cial game, to us it was more of a les­son.

“Our aim was to see how other teams in the league play and help us to iden­tify our weak­nesses,” said Mh­langa.

“I think we re­ally needed this loss, as we have man­aged to iden­tify our mis­takes and are go­ing to work on them as we pre­pare for the ma­jor league.

“Our main weak­ness was the lack of en­durance be­cause we don’t get enough time to prac­tise as some of our play­ers have work com­mit­ments.”

Mh­langa also said they would try to boost their squad by adding some school­girls.

High­landers net­ball coach Ta­tenda Gwenzi be­lieves Tsholot­sho have great po­ten­tial to com­pete in the league next sea­son.

“It’s just that they met a big­ger team, but if they work hard they will be tough op­po­nents next sea­son,” Gwenzi said — @khumza­llen.
