This weekend will be a busy one for the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League. Most of the matches will be played on Saturday, while only one will be seen on Sunday. The match not to be missed will be between Lacoste Morning Stars and Sisters FC that will be played at the Shayandima School Grounds on Saturday.
Morning Stars and Sisters are closely contesting for the league title. The Stars are lying in the second position on the log standings with 12 points, while Sisters are close behind in the third place with seven points. Both have played five matches to date.
Morning Stars must win the match to restore their pride after losing 0-2 to Two for Joy Ladies at the Raliphaswa Grounds last Saturday. Sisters too must win the match to keep their title hopes alive. Sisters were unexpectedly held to a 3-3 draw by Real Mighty Girls at the Nwamitwa Grounds outside Tzaneen last Saturday.
Rodadau FC will travel to Malamulele, where they will play against Merwe United Ladies at the Merwe Stadium. Rodadau and Merwe are still to win a league match to date. Merwe United will have a mammoth task to stop the strikers of Rodadau, Sbongile Sebetha, Pheeha Ramashapa and Puleni Sebola.
