The Selosesha police cluster in Botshabelo hosted a three-day sports tournament from 19 to 21 July.

The event was organised to counter the high involvement of the youth in drugs and gangsterism.

“We decided to bring the games to Botshabelo as a way to discourage the youth from harmful activities,” said Lt.Gen. Lebeoana Tsumane, Free State police commissioner.

The tournament started with several netball and soccer teams all vying to be in the finals.

The netball finals saw the girls playing at the loveLife Centre where the police’s netball team beat the Department of Health’s netball team by 17-4.

The soccer teams played at Section C and saw the Ayenbush women soccer team in the final against the Mphakathi team.

In the men’s final, Yster FC faced off against Black Urban.

Ayenbush beat Mphakathi by 3-0 and Yster FC beat Black Urban by 1-0.
