Ramblers maintained a three point lead at the top of the MTC Premiership after a 2-1 victory against Mighty Gunners on Saturday. Blue Waters remained second after beating Civics 1-0 in Walvis Bay, while Black Africa, SKW and African Stars all recorded wins to move up into the top five on the log.
At the Ramblers field, the home side dominated from the start against Mighty Gunners but they did not have much to show for it. Eslin Kamuhanga had a goal disallowed for offside, while Floris Diergaardt had a shot tipped for a corner.
African Stars got their second win of the season when they beat Oshakati City 2-0 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday.
Stars started the match by going on the attack against the visitors with a few attempts at goal in the first minutes of the match.
They were rewarded when Ikuaterua Tjozongoro found the back of the net after an individual effort, which saw him dribbling the ball from the midfield and beating the City goalkeeper Melksidek Shikwu in the 13th minute.
Orlando Pirates’ faltering start to the season got back on track on Friday with a 2-1 victory against Tigers, but not without controversy.
Tigers took the lead midway through the first half through a goal by Amy Gebhardt, but were dealt a decisive blow when Gebhardt was sent off for a foul just before halftime.
Tigers defended resolutely after the break, but Pirates’ numerical advantage told as they equalised through Engelhardt Kahua on 70m, while Michael Pienaar scored the winner on 83m.
