WINDHOEK, 17 OCT (NAMPA) – African Queens on Saturday closed the gap on Swakopmund Women’s Soccer League (SWSL) log leader Dragon City after week three of the eight-team football league.
The amateur women’s football league, now in its second season, was established in June 2015 with eight football teams based in Swakopmund and Arandis.
The league, which consisted of only six teams at the beginning of the season, now has two additional teams which registered a week ago.
Kavetu Football Club (FC) from Arandis joined the league this season, while Chelsea Girls FC and Kavetu FC B side, known as KFC, are the two new members of the league that joined a week ago.
They will compete against Swakopmund Sport Development Club (SSDC), Namib Daughters, Dream Team, African Queens and Dragon City.
Namib Daughters were crowned the champions of the league last year.
With the league now in its third week of the second season, Dragon City are top of the log on nine points, while African Queens are second.
On Saturday Queens, who started the season with a win and then dropped points last week after forfeiting their fixture against Namib Daughters due to their players writing exams, came on to the pitch firing on all cylinders against Dream Girls. They won the match 2-1.
They are now three points behind City who did not have any games over the weekend.
Other fixtures that were played over the weekend in Swakopmund are SSDC 2-0 Chelsea Girls FC.
While in Arandis, Kavetu FC beat their sister team KFC 4-1.
League chairperson Wilson Nguvauva told Nampa on Sunday he was not happy with the way the league was progressing. He said they are not planning on registering more teams for this season.
Despite having an off weekend, Dragon City are still leading the log on nine points, while African Queens are on six points and Dream Team, SSDC and Kavetu are on three points each.
KFC, Chelsea and Namib Daughters are currently on zero points.
