Playground Legends 3-on-3 (Meadowlands)

Fiat Sports Centre, Zone 9 Meadowlands, Soweto

The day came and went with the Playground Legends standing tall on the day. Fiat Sports Centre, Zone 9 Meadowlands, Soweto is where it all went down.

8 Teams signed up for the contest and boy did the teams bring their game, as teams from the surrounding hoods came through to pit their skills against each other. We witnessed some scintillating game-play with some teams dominating their opponents from start to finish in their match-ups, whilst other matches were hard fought with either side not allowing an inch for the opponents to gain the advantage.

As the contest goes someone had to win and someone had to loose. In the final match-up Jordan, Musa and Given (Red team) faced Mike, Mandla and Siphiwe (Burgundy team). Stage was set for an exciting encounter between the two teams since the Red team came into the finals as the favourites and the Burgundy team the underdogs.

Team Burgundy were a definite threat after they won their semi final game with a blazing come back from being 6-0 down to being eventual match winners at 8-6 final score edging out their opponents by 2 points! When it came down to it, the Burgundy team were no match for the Red team, they took charge of the game anihilated their opponents with a 12 point winning margin with scores ending up at 16-4.

The winning team members were each awarded a Fresh pair of Mark Ecko unltd kicks (Sneakers). In between the matches there was also a Dunk contest and a 3 point shoot out, with winners of each discipline also being awarded a pair of Mark Ecko unltd kicks(Sneakers).

All in all an awesome time was had by all and we look forward to the next Playground Legends contest. A big thank you to Themba Sefolo of Boywonder entertainment for organising this event. For more information you can contact Themba at
