Female pool team shines in Malawi

By Moorosi Tsiane

MASERU — Lesotho Female Pool side won silver at the All Africa Pool Championship Games that ended last Sunday in Malawi.

The Lesotho female team finished second behind winners South Africa.

The Lesotho male team on the other hand had a disappointing performance and came back empty handed as Zambia won the males edition of the competition.

South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique and the host Malawi are the five countries that participated in this year’s three-day All Africa Pool championships.

Lesotho pool and snooker Association (Lepsa) public relations officer, Tefo Sethathi, told the Lesotho Times on Tuesday that he was impressed with the performance of the two teams despite not having time to rest after arriving in Malawi.

“I think we could have done much better had we travelled to Malawi in time.

“We only arrived there a few hours before the competition got underway and the players were tired from the long journey,” Sethati said.

He said they had financial problems prior to the competition hence why they travelled so late.

“This was the first competition for our teams playing outside the country and both teams deserve to be applauded for their good performance.

Sethati said the competition was a learning curve for the Lesotho team as they prepare to compete in more international competitions.

“Our male team was up against the best teams, but there is room for improvement so that they also succeed in the future,” Sethati said.

He told this paper that they learned a lot during the tournament and that will be used to improve the sport in their own country.

Lepsa president, Nqheku Matolo, was also in full praise of their teams.

“Our South African counterparts have already promised to help provide training for our female team so as to improve them even more,” Matolo said.
