Hasco United u-17 displayed one of the finest performances this season when they thrashed Mornings Stars FC by 6-0 to be crowned champions of Ward 98 Sports tournament.

Morning Stars FC tried hard to contain their opponents, but Hasco were in an unforgiving mood from the first whistle.

It was almost a matter of time before Hasco cracked the slow-moving defence off guard, and when it did, sluice-gates opened as Hasco scored five goals within 15 minutes of the game.

Hasco midfielders were in a mean mood as they orchestrated the downfall of their opponents with their killer passess.

Hasco coach Nkqonkqozile Matshuphu praised his side for a world class performance.

“The boys were eager to win this tournament, because we have not won any cup this season, so it was quite important for us to win this.”

He said they were a better team in the field and they were good in terms of reading the game.

Indeed, they were the best team in the tournament as they won all their group stage matches.

Matshuphu added: “Even our under 14 team clinched this tournament, which means that when you prepare in time, you will never go wrong, and our victory is written in the stars, being the first team to win this inaugural tournament in both divisions.”

Morning Star coach Lazola Klaas said he was dumbfounded by such a huge loss:

“I’m speechless and I don’t really know what to say. They just made fun of us, but we have to learn from this and rectify our mistakes,” he said.

Ward 98 councillor, Anele Gabuza applauded the teams which took part in the tournament, the first in the area.

Gabuza said the aim of the tournament, which will be an anual event, was to lure children away from drugs and gangsterim.

“A child in sport is a child out of court,” said Gabuza.

Tournament organiser, Dipou Malahlisa said most teams displayed top class football and there is no doubt that this tournament is going to benefit the entire Harare in the long run. He encouraged young people to take part in sport and avoid crime
