Schools battle in Under-15 tourney



MASERU – Several high schools are set to battle it out on Saturday in an Under-15 football tournament to mark Moshoeshoe’s Day.

The two-day tournament is organised by the Lesotho Institutions Sports Association (LISA) which hosts different sporting codes to celebrate Moshoeshoe’s Day with Basotho.

This year the tournament includes athletics and other sports. The athletics competition will be held later this month.

So far, four out of 12 schools have confirmed their participation. The schools are Lesia, ‘Matikoe, Abia and Likuena High from Mohale’s Hoek.

If the other eight schools fail to register, the tournament will likely be a one-day event. LISA spokesperson Ntainyane Marabe said the venue has not been confirmed but the possible venues are Lesotho High School or Bambatha Tšita Sports Arena.

Setsoto Stadium will not be available for the games on Saturday because it will host the highly anticipated Vodacom Premier League clash between Bantu and Matlama. Besides celebrating Moshoeshoe’s Day, the winning school will represent Lesotho at the regional COSAFA Under-15 tournament to be held later this year.

“We wanted to celebrate (Moshoeshoe’s Day) with the Under-15 tournament, another objective is that the team that wins the competition will go to the COSAFA Under-15 as a school to represent Lesotho,” Marabe said.
