WINDHOEK, 25 SEP (NAMPA) – Thirty-seven goals were scored in the five fixtures of the Swakopmund Women’s Soccer League (SWSL) played over the weekend.
Some teams played their third and fourth games of the 2017 season after taking a month’s break due to examinations and school holidays. The 2017 league kicked off in the middle of July but took a break to allow players to study for their August examinations.
Before the break, Dream Team topped the log with nine points, while 2016 champions Dragon City were in sixth position with zero points from the two games.
On Saturday at the Mondesa Stadium, Dragon City beat United Nations 11-0 before drawing 2-2 with the Super Ladies.
The league log leaders Dream Team lost their first game of the season 2-1 against African Queens.
In other fixtures that were also played over the weekend at the same venue, Namib Daughters won 8-1 against Super Ladies and Kavetu FC won 10-0 against United Nations.
The league’s chairperson, Wilson Nguvauva told Nampa on Monday teams that have been in the league since its inception are stronger than the new ones, but once the newer teams adapt and improve their squads with new players, they will give their opponents a run for every point.
The amateur women’s football league was established in June 2015 with eight football teams, all based in Swakopmund and Arandis. It has now added a new team from Walvis Bay called Super Ladies.
Chelsea from Swakopmund and Kavetu’s second team are not in this year’s competition.
Dragon City, Namib Daughters, Dream Team, Swakopmund Football Club, African Queens, Kavetu, Super Ladies and United Nations are the teams that compete in the league.
Namib Daughters were crowned champions in the league’s maiden season.
