Mufakose win Hammer and Tongues tourney

HARARE - Mufakose 2 High School striker Craig Mhike powered home five goals to help his side emerge as the toast of the 2015 Hammer and Tongues St Georges College Invitational Tournament on Saturday.

Mhike fittingly walked away with the top goal scorer award whilst his teammates Ronald Rusere and Shephard Kaleso received the players’ player and most valuable player awards respectively.

The third edition of the event hosted 20 schools from in and around Harare but it was Mufakose, who went unbeaten in the tournament and ultimately bagged the biggest price.

They beat Cornway College 1-0 in a tightly contested final.

Earlier, Mufakose had edged Kuwadzana 1 High in the semi-final courtesy of 1-0 victory whilst Cornway College hammered Prince Edward School 4-1 en route to the final.

Prince Edward, however, quickly picked themselves from that humiliation to beat Kuwadzana 1 High 1-0 in the third and fourth play-off.

Cornway had looked destined to win the tournament judging by the amount of goals they were scoring in the group and knockout stages.

In the quarter-finals they had made light work of Sodbury School winning the encounter 2-0 whilst Mufakose 2 High overcame Goromonzi by a similar score line.

Although finishing second, Cornway grabbed the bragging rights of the goalkeeper of the tournament award for the exploits of Oneal Baison in between the sticks.

Evidence Tendayi added to Cornway’s list of accolades after receiving the best defender award.

Passmore Makandiona, who was at the heart of Cornway’s high scoring run before they came unstuck against Mufakose, was rewarded for his effort after receiving the midfielder of the tournament award.
