Tricky hurdle ahead of United Ladies


Another busy weekend awaits the teams affiliated with the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League. Seven matches will be played on Saturday, with only one scheduled for Sunday afternoon.

After donating league points to Rodadau FC, to whom they had lost 0-3 at the Tshitungulwane Grounds last Saturday, Merwe United Ladies have another mountain to climb this Saturday. They will host Lacoste Morning Stars at the Merwe Grounds in the Malamulele area.

Things are not going according to plan in the United Ladies’ camp. The team has yet to win a league match this season. They have managed to collect only two points in the seven matches they have played so far. A win for Morning Stars will enhance their chances of promotion. The Shayandima side are currently lying in fifth position with nine points, nine behind the pace-setters, Sinthumulekutama FC.

Gumani “Mphela” Mulibana and Nompilo Nkuna are the players to watch in the Stars’ camp. Nkuna scored the team’s second goal when Morning Stars beat Real Mighty Ladies 2-0 at the Shayandima School Grounds last Saturday.

Tshandama Young Stars must beat Sealene Ladies when they meet at the Tshandama Grounds if they are serious about escaping the relegation axe at the end of the season. Young Stars have yet to win a league match to date. They are perched in the third spot from the bottom of the log with two points.

Masakona Liberty Experience will entertain Real Mighty Ladies at the Masakona Grounds. Sisters FC will do battle against Sinthumulekutama FC at the Mandlakazi Grounds in Bolobedu. Sinthumulekutama have yet to drop points so far. They have managed to collect full points in all six matches they have played so far.

The other fixtures are Golden Diamonds Ladies vs. Dinaledi Ladies, FC 50 Stars United vs. Kanatla Ladies, University of Limpopo vs. Mandebele Happy Fighters Ladies, and Ramatlaohle Ladies vs. Marumo Gallants.
