YOUTH from Verulam and Tongaat held a sports day at the Hambanathi Sports Ground to commemorate Youth Day on June 16.

Youths participated in soccer and netball.

The Parkgate soccer team locked horns with Hambanathi soccer team, but neither team scored by the final whistle, resulting in a penalty shootout.

The organiser of the event Mthandeni Khumalo told the Weekly: “Both teams had to go for penalty shootout.

The final score was Hambanathi 7 and Parkgate 6.

However, the Parkgate netball team beat the SOT netball team from Hambanathi 11-7.

“Our intention was to bring the youth from Dr
