Black Africa turned on the style to beat Ramblers 4-0 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday and keep their faint title hopes alive. Black Africa took a while to break down Ramblers’ defence but then put the issue beyond doubt with three goals within 10 minutes.
The victory puts BA on 34 points – five behind African Stars and Pirates, but still in with a small mathematical chance of winning the title.
BA opened their account in the first half injury time when Bryan Bantam headed a Kiriri Moussa cross past a diving Lutz Pfannenstiel.
Some major shocks were recorded on Saturday when the 2010 Rugby Premier League kicked off as defending champions Rehoboth and 2008 champions Western Suburbs were both defeated.
Rehoboth were soundly beaten 30-15 by Reho Falcon in their home derby, while Suburbs suffered a shock 28-12 home defeat to Unam.
League newcomers Mariental caused another surprise when they beat Kudus 30-7 in Mariental, while Wanderers beat United 23-17 in Windhoek.
At the Wanderers field, Wanderers beat United 23-17, after leading 13-10 at halftime, in a scrappy match that could have gone either way.
