WINDHOEK, 06 MAR (NAMPA) – Namib Daughters collected three points after their opponents, SSDC, failed to honour their fixture in the Swakopmund Women's Soccer League (SWSL) over the weekend.
Defending champions Namib Daughters are currently second on the log with 27 points, and Dragon City leading on 30 points.
Both teams have one game left to play.
Daughters have to win their last match on 18 March and hope City lose to be crowned champion on a better goal advantage. City only needs a draw to win the league.
The last games of the league will be played in Swakopmund on 18 March.
In the other match played over the weekend, African Queens beat Kavetu FC 4-3 in Arandis.
Both SSDC and Dream Team lost points over the weekend after the two teams failed to show up for their match.
The second edition of the amateur women’s football league started in October last year, with eight football teams.
These are Kavetu Football Club (KFC) from Arandis who joined the league with two teams (KFC A and KFC B); and Dragon City, Namib Daughters, Dream Team, Swakopmund Sport Development Club (SSDC), African Queens and Chelsea, all based in Swakopmund.
However, Kavetu B-side and Chelsea were disqualified three weeks ago for failing to honour their fixtures three times in a row, said League Chairperson Wilson Nguvauva.
Nguvauva told Nampa on Sunday the teams are all prepared for the final games this month. He called on community members to show up in numbers and support the teams.
The current SWSL log standing:
1. Dragon City - 30 points
2. Namib Daughters - 27
3. Dream Team - 16
4. African Queens - 12
5. SSDC - 12
