20 August 2018 – The Western Cape Sasol League may have started slightly later than other provinces due to the drought challenges experienced in the Western Cape, but things have picked up quite impressively with clubs displaying showing hunger to play.
Looking at stream A of the province, league favourites, Cape Town Roses have made their intentions title ambitions clear with five straight wins since the start of the season. The Cape Town based side currently sits top of the table with 15 points from five matches with RV United just three points behind them having lost one match so far.
Milano United and Nietvoorbij have been the whipping girls of the stream in these early stage of the season. After five games, both teams languish at the bottom of the log without a single point having lost all their games.The second stream of the province after six games sees UWC Ladies leading the pack. The University side will be disappointed to have dropped two precious points following their 0-0 stalemate this past weekend against a resilient Spurs WFC.
The log leaders are now separated by a mere point from second placed, Vasco da Gama who eased past Maties FC by 5-0 will be looking at giving UWC a good run this season.
Spurs WFC have also been impressive in the new campaign with 13 points from four wins, a draw and a loss which still puts them in contention to challenge the league favourites for title honours.
Phoenix Spurs FC have been rather disappointing with zero points from four outings and will be hoping to change this poor record in their upcoming matches starting this weekend against Ikamva United.
