WINDHOEK – The battle is on between Namib Daughters and Dragon City to be crowned the 2016/17 Swakopmund Women's Soccer League (SWSL) champions.
Dragon City are leading the log on 30 points, while defending champions Namib Daughters are second with 24 points.
Daughters have two games left to play, and City one. A win or draw for City will see them crowned champions, but if they lose, Daughters will win the league on a superior goal aggregate.
The last games of the league will be played on 18 March in Swakopmund.
The second edition of the amateur women's football league started in October last year, with eight football teams.
These are Kavetu Football Club (KFC) from Arandis, who joined the league with two teams (KFC A and KFC B); and Dragon City, Namib Daughters, Dream Team, Swakopmund Sport Development Club (SSDC), African Queens and Chelsea, all based in Swakopmund.
However, Kavetu B-side and Chelsea were disqualified for failing to honour their fixtures, three times in a row, said League chairperson Wilson Nguvauva.
He told Nampa on Wednesday that the league is growing, and teams are now more prepared when they show up for games.
Nguvauva accredited senior national women's team coach Jacqui Shipanga for being instrumental in helping coaches and league administrators.
He said they have the problem of parents limiting or ceasing players' participation in the football league because “it's a 'men's game'”.
