8 September 2019 – Players in the SAFA Women’s National League made their voices heard when they joined millions around the country saying enough is enough to the violent protests that have gripped the country and the recent spate of women and children abuse.

Before all six matches this weekend, the teams held up banners written South African Football Association rejects #criminal looting and #xenophia as well as another one that said SAFA Says no to Women and Children Abuse.

This is the second round of matches of the newly-launched Women’s National League, which is proving toe be a success.

On the field of play, Lelona Daweti was the star of the show when she scored a hattrick to help her side Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies to a 3-0 victory over hosts, the University of Johannesburg on Sunday, 8 September.

Earlier in the day, University of Western Cape were held to a 1-1 draw by Golden Ladies from North West, whilst Richmond Ladies registered their first win of the season when they defeated Tsunami Queens 2-1.

But the biggest winners this weekend were Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies, who beat Durban Ladies 6-0 on Saturday (7 September).

They now sit third on the log table following the drawn match in the first match of the newly-launched league.

Also on Saturday, Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) came from behind to win 5-2 against Thunderbirds Ladies, while Coal City Wizards and First Touch Academy shared the spoils with a 2-2 draw.

Sundowns’ win sees them top of the 12-team table after two rounds of matches. They are tied on six points each with neighbours TUT, but the former has a better goal difference.

Third is Celtic who have amassed four points – level with Golden Ladies and Coal City Wizards who are fourth and fifth respectively.

Tsunami Queens complete the top six, with three points.

Six teams are yet to lose a game – Sundowns, TUT, Celtic, Golden Ladies, Coal City Wizards and UWC.
