First place winners - Zone 2

On Thursday, 26 October, the prize-giving ceremony of the Lake Umuzi Soccer Challenge was held at the AquaZone Waterpark.
This tournament is a Lake Umuzi community project that strives to give children in the Govan Mbeki municipal area a tournament where they can develop their soccer skills, as well as life skills. The organisers educate the children about HIV, AIDS, domestic abuse and other social issues the children might face.
Organizer Jacob Mtakwenpe is passionate about children and teaching the children about the discipline soccer requires from you and then applying the skills to everyday life. He also invites more teams to participate in next year’s tournament.
The 2017 tournament consisted of 14 teams and the 4 teams that competed in the semi-final had the opportunity to be at the prize-giving at AquaZone Waterpark, where the teams could enjoy an afternoon of fun at the waterpark. These teams where the Zone 2, Young Starts, Royal Force and Home Boys. They received T-shirts, medals and a meal sponsored by Lake Umuzi. A&E donated a pair of soccer shoes to the best goal scorer of the tournament.
2017’s tournament winners were Zone 2, with last year’s winners, Home Boys, in second place. In third place was Young Stars and forth was Royal Force.
The next tournament will start after school exams at the end of November.
The Bulletin wants to congratulate Zone 2 for being this year winners and encourage other teams to strive to be the winners next year.
