OLWANDLE High soccer team participated in the KZN Top 32 Schools Tournament hosted by Durban Stars Sports and Marketing in partnership with Multichoice and SuperSport.

Mkhondie Mufamadi, Olwandle High sports co-ordinator said the tournament identifies talented players from schools in urban and rural KwaZulu-Natal who might be selected to play overseas.

“Out of the 32 schools only four were selected in the Ugu district, with Olwandle being one of them,” he said.

Olwandle played its first round of matches last week in Durban at the King Zwelithini Stadium­ making it to the top eight, beating Umlazi Com Tech in penalties, 3-1.

Mufamadi said the boys outshone themselves.

“The score was sitting at 1-1 and after the penalties, goal keeper Sanele Nhlumayo saved all three, with Emihle Mgcotshelwa scoring the winning penalty.”

The team thanks its coaches Nhlanhla Mbili, head coach and his assistant Tino Ndwalane for their hard voluntary work
