Mmegi Online :: Spar Netball League resumes








A couple of weeks ago, the launch of the 2012 Botswana Netball Association (BONA) Northern Zone Netball League was marred by non-attendance by some clubs in what could have otherwise been a mouth-watering start to the league in Sowa Town. TASC, who finished first in the last year's season log standings, will be hoping to get to an explosive start when they host Sowa-based Flamingoes.

TASC, who are headless after coach Samuel Letsatsi quit, will hope to begin on a bright note, while Flamingoes will want to take advantage of their rivals' problems. TASC failed to travel to Sowa a couple of weeks ago due to disorganisation although the team officials argued that they had not received fixtures. TASC will be involved in another interesting duel tomorrow at the Francistown College of Technical and Vocational Education (FCTVE) courts when they visit BOASA. Last season, TASC rolled over BOASA in all the games scoring not less than 80 goals.

BOASA would be aiming for a good start when they clash with TASC and beating the Botswana Defence Force (BDF) Donga based outfit will serve as a great motivation to the players of the Botswana Prison Service (BPS) backed side. The game between Flamingoes and BOASA at the same venue at 12:00 pm promises to thrill. Flamingoes have been on a surge for the past two years and would want to maintain the charge.

Last year, the Neo 'Horse' Kebuang coached side qualified for the Top 8 Tournament, which comprises four teams from each zone (South and North).Flamingoes, which has got a sound development policy, has promoted a number of youngsters aged 21 years and below, have shown maturity and growth during their season opening games played at Sowa against Miscellaneous and Botswana Railways (Botsrail).At Palapye's Kgaswe College courts, Miscellaneous will lock horns with Morupule Wanderers in the morning, while Botsrail will take on Arsenal at the same time and venue.

At 10:00 am, Miscellaneous will confront Botsrail, while Morupule will be up against Arsenal.BONA Northern Zone League Chairperson, Kene Tjikwakwa, said all the clubs are expected to honour the fixtures as the glitches experienced the previous weekend have been sorted out.
