Two goals within the first three minutes gave Angolan Premier League side Recreativo de Caala a shock 2-0 victory over a Namibian XI at the SKW Stadium on Wednesday night. After their early lead the Angolans went on to dominate possession, as they knocked the ball around with disdain to compound the frustration of the home team.
Shortly before halftime one of the floodlights went out after being struck by lightning and the match was called off at the start of the second half, in the interests of the players’ safety.
Black Africa striker Jerome Louis remained at the top of the MTC Namibia Premier League goal scorer’s chart after completion of Round 10 over the weekend. Despite Black Africa’s 2-0 defeat to Pirates last Saturday, Louis remains at the top of the chart on nine goals from ten matches.
Second placed Tigers striker Tangeni Shipahu had a great chance to close the gap on Louis since Tigers played two matches last week, but he failed to find the net against African Stars on February 4 as well as Ramblers four days later.
Shipahu, however, remains second on the log on seven goals.
