After a break of two weeks, the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League will be back in action again this weekend. Last weekend’s fixtures were postponed to a later date for the burial of the league’s secretary, Mr Patrick Seema, who passed away last week after a short illness. He was buried on Sunday.
The Stars will do battle when Tshandama Young Stars test their strength against Lacoste Morning Stars at the Tshandama Grounds on Saturday. Young Stars will have to double their efforts if they want to collect the full points at the expense of Lacoste. Morning Stars are currently leading the pack, while Young Stars are perched in the third spot from the bottom of the log.
Morning Stars beat Young Stars 2-0 in their first-round league match at the Shayandima School Grounds about three months ago. Morning Stars are still to lose a league match after acquiring the services of five vastly experienced players from the Gauteng-based side, Mito Stars, about two months ago.
The other title chasers, Chippas United Ladies, will visit Sisters FC at the Nwamitwa Grounds outside Tzaneen. Chippas will pin their hopes on Lethabo Sello, Mantotsi Mbulaheni and Khodani Ratshalingwa for goals, while Ritshidze Phaduli, Edzani Ramaano and Dimakatso Mamatepa will be expected to keep their danger area clean throughout the game.
Botlokwa Ladies will entertain Sealene Ladies at the Tshitungulwane Grounds in the Vuwani area. Real Mighty Ladies will play against Merwe United Ladies at the Xikukwani Stadium outside Giyani. The other weekend fixtures are University of Limpopo FC vs FC 50 Stars Ladies, Mandebele Happy Fighters Ladies vs Kanatla Ladies, Skimzozo FC vs Copper Belts and Seven Stars Ladies vs Capricorn Sports Development.
