25 August 2017 – Football fans are in for a treat this weekend as the Sasol Women’s League reaches fever pitch on its journey towards the National Championship in December.
It’s a very tight affair in KZN with the top three teams separated by only four points. Durban Ladies take on second from bottom Tiger Girls in what should be a routine victory for them on Sunday, while looking to extend their slender lead at the top will be Sunflower FC when they host mid table side Galaxy Ladies at the Mpumalanga Regional Stadium on Sunday at 1pm.
The bottom of the table clash between Real United and Ntuzuma Ladies on Sunday should prove to be a real humdinger as both teams are desperate for points. Bottom of the table Ducks Ladies will welcome Tottenham Ladies at the Impumelelo Stadium on Sunday with hopes of casing an unlikely upset.
It is even tighter down in the Western Cape where UWC Ladies will look to at least maintain their slender one-point lead atop the table when they clash with Manenburg Ladies at the Manenburg Stadium on Friday evening. Breathing down their necks are a buoyant Cape Town Roses who are desperate to return to the summit of football in the province. They will take on ninth placed Burnely United on Saturday as their quest continues.
Action returns to Limpopo this weekend after a scouting program put the league on pause this past weekend. Kanatla Ladies should have no issues dispatching of Modimolle Ladies and extending their lead in stream A in Limpopo, while Ma-Indies continue to show no mercy in stream B and up next on their hit list is Team Herman at the Malamulele Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Sasol League takes place across all the nine provinces of South Africa. Matches are played on Saturdays and Sundays in the afternoon and will culminate with the National Championships that take place over a period of one week towards the end of the year.
