THE Dumisani Foundation football games enter the penultimate round of fixtures on Saturday at Entumbane High School with the four boys as well as two girls’ schools in action.
Entumbane, Gifford, Mtshabezi and Milton are the four boys’ schools taking part while Entumbane and Mtshabezi have their girls being part of the action.
Arthur Mpuli, the Dumisani Foundation co-ordinator, said they were expecting some explosive action as the youngsters had shown great form in the previous two rounds of action played so far.
Gifford are on top of the log with four wins from the six matches they have played and are followed by Milton.
“Fireworks are expected as there is so much quality being exhibited by the participating teams. The girl child will be in action. Entumbane squares up with Mtshabezi. Gifford Bees lead the pack closely followed by the Souvlaki Elephants of Milton,” said Mpuli.
The final round of fixtures will take place at Mtshabezi High School just before schools close in August where the team that finishes on top in the round robin will be declared champions.
United Kingdom-based Dumisani Ndlovu, the man behind the initiative, is expected to come down for the ultimate round of matches together with his younger brother Nkosiyazi Maphenduka who is also based in the United Kingdom and is one of the sponsors.
Last year, there was double delight for Entumbane High School with both their boys as well as girls being champions in the tournament.
The Entumbane girls clobbered Mtshabezi 7-0 while the boys defeated the same school 4-3 on penalties with the match having concluded 1-1 in normal time.
It came as no surprise when Entumbane swept away all the individual prizes. Ronaldo Chapataronga was judged the best player on display at the tournament, Blessing Banda walked away with the Man of the Match award after the final while Andile Sagonda was voted the Goalkeeper of the Tournament.
For the girls, Tryphine Tembo won the Player of the Match for the final.
