SKW opened up a five-point lead at the top of the log after beating Oshakati City 1-0 at their home field in Olympia on Saturday. Jacky Stephanus scored the winner when he headed in a fine cross by Edwin Korukuve on 60m.
The match was not much of a spectacle and chances were few and far between.
In an uneventful first half, Sledge Gowaseb came the closest to scoring when he hit the crossbar with a 20m strike.
African Stars’ title ambitions suffered a setback when they were beaten 2-1 by Hotspurs on Friday. Edward Asino scored both Hotspurs’ goals while Rudi Louw replied for Stars with a goal from the penalty spot.
Asino opened the scoring shortly after the break when he broke free in the box and chested a cross into the net.
Asino put Hotspurs further ahead when he dribbled past two defenders and beat Stars’ keeper from close range.
Louw pulled a goal back for Stars when they were awarded a penalty for a handball in the box and he made no mistake with his spot-kick.
