North West Sasol League Championship push heats up

Friday, 21 July 2017

Titans the hottest team in the North-West region of the Sasol League kick off this weekend’s proceedings with an away clash to league strugglers Tlhabologang Ladies at Coligny Hoer Skool.

The 29 points garnered from the previous twelve matches by Titans is the most in the region during that stretch and will look to keep that momentum going against a side that has only registered one league win this season.

Second placed De’Scorpion will continue to chase for that number one spot when they travel to Mafikeng to take on North West University FC on Saturday afternoon at the NWU Sport Ground. De’Scorpion are the only team in the Bokoni Bophirima region yet lose a game from their ten league matches, and with two games in hand they will be looking to cut the deficit.

Golden Ladies come into the weekend clash against Platinum Arsenal Ladies in third position on 25-points, four points behind leaders, Titans. The Tlhabane based, Platinum Arsenal are in seventh spot and a win over their more fancied opponents will help their cause for a national championship push.

On the same day Als Puk Tawana entertain Clive United at NWU-Portchestroom Campus. The Potch based-side have not been in action for the past couple of weeks and will be looking to get their promising campaign back on track as they are lying in fourth position on 21 points with four games in hand.

Gopane Ladies came up big last weekend with a much-needed victory with a couple of goals in a 2-0 home victory over fellow league strugglers Icons Ladies as they won their first match of the season. This weekend they will be looking for their second win of the season against bottom-side, The Bold & The Beautiful who are yet to register a victory from their twelve matches.

Other fixtures this weekend will see Florentina FC take on Bianca Academy at the Montshioa stadium, while Boitumelo United play host to We Can Ladies at the Gaopalelo Secondary School. All matches will take place on Saturday afternoon.
