9 May 2018 – The Sasol Women’s League is taking shape nicely across the country, particularly in the Gauteng stream where it was raining goals this past weekend.
The action kicked off on Friday as home team JWV FC hammered Luso Africa 7-1 in a one-sided encounter in Bedfordview. JVW are comfortably placed in third position while it’s back to the drawing board for their wounded rivals.
Proceedings continued on Saturday with four mouth-watering clashes, the first of which saw the decorated Palace Super Falcons thumping University of JHB FC 4-0 in Auckland Park. It was Super Falcon’s first win of their campaign as they now occupy mid-table spot.
Croesus then earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory at home against Nicco Tarius FC in Balfour in a tense clash that could have gone either way. The winners clawed their way up to 5th in the standings while Tarius remain in 7th and will need to tidy up at the back with a goal difference of -12.
It was yet another goal-fest at the Odi Prison where title favourites Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies FC routed Hallelujah Zebra Force 9-0. Sundowns remain unbeaten and eased into 2nd spot with a game in hand while the loss saw Zebra drop to 11th place on the log.
The day’s final match saw Tuks and bottom placed Soweto Fabulous cancel each other out in a 0-0 stalemate at the University of Pretoria.
Sunday’s first of three exciting fixtures saw the impressive TUT Football Club dismantle Rosina Sedibane Modiba Sports School at the TUT Pretoria Stadium to condemn them to 14th spot. The win however helped TUT retain the lead as well as their healthy goal difference of +32.
Springs Home Sweepers FC then battled to a commendable 2-1 away victory against Blue Birds at Alexandra Stadium. The win took Sweepers in to the top four while the Birds dropped to 15th and are still winless.
The final game of the weekend saw even more goals as VUT FC lost a riveting encounter at home to NWU Vaal FC at the Isak Steyl Stadium (4-2). Both teams still have plenty of work to do if they wish to catch the pace-setters.
