Pilot project. The final of the school competition, a Caf project dedicated to U15 girls was held this Saturday on the grounds of St Michel college in Amparibe. Nanisana general education college won the trophy by dismissing CEG Antanimbari-Nandriana after the penalty shootout (0-0 tab 5-4). Third place went to St Michel College, which beat Esca in the classification match. The trophy for the best player was awarded to Cathy Rarivo from Esca, that of the best scorer to Princia Miaroniaina from CEG Nanisana and that of the best goalkeeper awarded to Félicia Koloina Randria from St Michel. Antanimbarinan-driana also signs a double in the competition. Wendy Tsarakolohariveloniaina was voted best juggler while Marie Ellianah Razanamalalatafitasoa best goal shooter. The Malagasy football federation provided the eight schools in the capital with a bag containing a complete kit of sets of jerseys for the twelve players, shin guards, gloves and jersey for the goalkeeper, false stockings and chasubles in addition to the grant from 1000 USD per team. “The main criterion for selecting the teams is the existence of a football pitch within the establishment” underlines Sandrine Michela Andriantsimialona, president of the women’s football committee within the federation. The eight participating teams were divided into four groups of four and the tournament lasted a month. “We are satisfied with the event. A considerable evolution has been observed among young people, an opportunity also for educators who have just obtained the D Caf license to apply their skills” she continues. “After this pilot event, other regions or provinces will soon benefit from it. We will send the report of the event to the Caf and concoct the next ones. These decentralized tournaments will be rounded off by a festival whose cost of organization amounts to 4,000 USD,” explains the manager.
