Windhoek — The opening round of the popular social Top Score 7-a-Side social tourney, sponsored by Namib Mills in conjunction with Ramblers FC, kicked off at the Ramblers field in Windhoek last weekend and produced a barrage of goals.

Meatco downed Medscheme 4-1, while New Era Newspaper saw off Mobipay 4-0 and G4S prevailed over Pupkewitz Megatech by the same scoreline.
