Samba Hockey Team’s first-ever trip to Zimbabwe has given the Blantyre team renewed vigour, despite losing four out of five matches.
Simba lost to University of Zimbabwe Ladies 8-0, Rising Stars 3-1 and Hippo Ladies 3-1 on January 28.
The following day, Simba drew 0-0 and lost 2-0 to opponents, whose names were not readily available as we went to press.
Nonetheless, Simba Captain, Trinity Chilembwe, described the trip as fruitful.
“Despite the losses, it was a good learning experience. It was interesting to see how other hockey teams play. We have definitely learnt from this tournament,” she said.
Chilembwe thanked Rising Star Media and friends for hosting the team in Harare.
“We are very appreciative of the hospitality they showed us. They went above our expectations,” she added.
“We are thankful to everyone who made our trip successful. We, especially, thank GPY who came through with a hefty donation at the last minute. We are truly grateful for their generosity.”
