Disappointment for Pakati Boys u-20s football team….

Pakati boys u-20s football team vs Chenhuta Secondary school

Heartbreak for Pakati boys – the competition at District level proved just too much. Pakati lost both their games in the group stage of the tournament. Both Chenhuta and Kambarami Secondary schools’ teams defeated Pakati 2-0. Both teams later went on to contest the final that day, but that was little consolation to Pakati.

Below are the comments from Pakati staff who accompanied the boys team to Chemhondoro Secondary School, venue for the District competitions:

Sports Director Mr Kahuni: ‘Everyone was disappointed with the results and even the coach was frustrated. The head, Mr Chifaka, just comforted the boys and told them to keep training for the next season.’ Coach Magabaza also said, ‘…they have learnt a lot, and are going to work on some of the errors noted down during the play.’
