25 October 2017 – The SAB League season is in full swing with teams dreaming of being promoted to the ABC Motsepe League all across the country.

The region that has been at it for a number of weeks now is the SAFA Alfred Nzo, where FC Matatiele are proving to be the team to watch.

Matatiele are top of Stream A following their four victories in four matches.

Their latest win came when they dispatched a hapless Dangerous Darkies 6-1 to send a massive statement to all the teams in the division.

Right behind them in second place is Amavenda FC, who are on seven points after four matches.  Amavenda won 2-0 against Thohoyandou to be separated from Real Aces FC, Scorpion FC, Thohoyandou FC and Dangerous Darkies, who occupy position three to six with six points each.

The Stars, who are bottom of the eight-team log are the only team who are finding the going extremely tough, having lost all their first four matches, with their recent loss being a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of seventh placed Matatiele Hotspurs FC.

Stream B is in the command of Siyanda FC, who are top of the log with 10 points from four matches. Following their impressive start to the season, Siyanda were recently held to a 1-1 draw by sixth placed Matshona Young Stars FC.

This has now given Nathi Brothers FC and Young Swallows FC a chance to go to the top of the log, as they are second and third respectively with nine points each.

Things are also heated in Limpopo’s SAFA Capricorn Region, where Moria Sweepers FC lead the 16 team log.

But below Moria Sweepers are seven more teams who have the same three points as Sweepers. The reason Sweepers are top is that they thrashed Maeba Chiefs 4-2 in their opening match, while sides such as Joe Academy, University of Limpopo, Sekonye Young Tigers, Simple Yellows and Machobane FC also recorded wins.

Mgolos All Stars are at the basement of the log and they have Vuka Hungry Tigers and Korea FC at the bottom for company. Small Tigers, Caledon United and Galaxy FC are among the six teams that managed to win their first matches in the SAFA Thabo Mofutsanyane Region.

Small Tigers thrashed Diyatalawa 4-0, with Caledon United hammering Zamalek 3-0.

FCMaberethe and Blizzards are the only two teams to have managed a 100% record to date in the SAFA Ngaka Modiri Molema Region with their two wins since the season started, while BMS, Mothlabani are third and fourth on four points, thanks to their one win and a draw.

The SAFA Prixley Ka Seme region, Union Players, BC Rangers and Charlton started well with two victories each, occupying the first three spots on the 16-team log.

Blue Birds are the only side to have lost all their opening two matches.
