26 February 2019 – JDR Stars have finally caught up with Baberwa FC in the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League race after their hard fought 1-0 win over Tembisa Sports Centre this past weekend.
While Baberwa also managed to scrape a 2-1 away win over M.Tigers, their 1-0 loss to Dube Continental was preceded by a 2-2 draw against African All Stars. The two results see the log leaders tied on points with JDR with a slight goal difference advantage.
Just eight rounds of matches remain in the Gauteng title race with both Baberwa and JDR having to face tough opposition ahead of being crowned champions and secure a place in the ABC Motsepe League National play offs.
The two top sides would be making a huge mistake if they were to write off third placed Dondol Stars who are just two points behind them.
Dondol Stars could have been tied on points with the top two but were disappointingly held to a 1-1 draw by seventh placed Pretoria Callies who have been blowing hot and cold this season.
African All Stars were also held at home by a resilient Leruma United in a high scoring 3-3 match while the match of the weekend certainly has to be Pele Pele’s 6-0 drubbing of XI Experience on Saturday.
