Morning Stars ready to shine over Sisters


After a two-week break, the struggle for promotion and to avoid relegation will continue this weekend among the teams affiliated with the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League. Four matches are scheduled for Saturday afternoon, with the same number of matches set for Sunday.

Whether Tshandama Young Stars will manage to rise to the occasion and beat Sinthumulekutama FC when they meet at the Sinthumule High School Grounds on Saturday remains to be seen. A quick glance at the records of the two teams shows that Young Stars will be fortunate if they can manage to hold Sinthumulekutama to a draw.

Sinthumulekutama currently lead the pack with 22 points, having yet to lose a league match this season. Their worst result was a 1-1 draw against Sisters FC. Young Stars suffered a 0-2 defeat to Sinthumulekutama in their first-round league match at the Tshandama Grounds on Sunday, 5 May.

The other title contenders, Rodadau FC, will host Masakona Liberty Experience at the Tshitungulwane Grounds in the Vuwani area. Rodadau will have only themselves to blame if they fail to collect maximum points from this crucial match. Liberty Experience are struggling to find a winning formula this season, having managed only one victory in eight outings. Rodadau currently lie in second place in the standings, three points behind leaders Sinthumulekutama.

Lacoste Morning Stars are preparing for a tough match against Sisters FC at Dynamos Grounds in Bolobedu outside Tzaneen. Sisters FC are closely competing for the league title in third place. Dropping points against Morning Stars could jeopardise Sisters' chances of lifting the league title trophy at the end of the season.

Real Mighty Girls will face Merwe United Ladies at Xikukwani Stadium outside Giyani.
