Midway stage for African youth women in Niger

Nine of the 21 games are complete at the 2019 CAHB Women’s African Youth Championship underway in Niamey, Niger, and set to finish on 24 September.

The tournament is round-robin format with all seven teams playing each other once and the team with the most points at the end taking the title.

Along with host nation Niger (NIG), Egypt (EGY), Tunisia (TUN), Angola (ANG), DR Congo (COD), Algeria (ALG) and Guinea (GUI) are all competing for the continental title, which has been won by Egypt the last two times (2015, 2017).

Egypt have comfortably won both of their games so far in Niamey, against Niger (43:8) and Guinea (33:26), while Angola, who are the record title-holders with three gold medals (2009, 2011, 2013), also have a 100% success rate, defeating Algeria (36:10) and Tunisia (28:21).

Guinea – who took bronze in the junior tournament – have also won two games, against Niger (25:19) and DR Congo (22:19) in a tight clash which saw the teams all-equal (10:10) at the break, but lost their third match, against the strong Egyptians.

Egypt take on Angola in what could be an eventual gold medal decider Sunday (22 September) at 1600h (local time), but with 12 matches remaining to be played in the competition, anything can happen.
