Tura Magic and Rundu Chiefs look well set to gain promotion to the Namibia Premier League after both extended their leads in the Southern and Northern Stream First Divisions respectively over the weekend.
Tura Magic won both their matches in the Southern Stream First Division, beating Unam 7-0 on Saturday and Windhoek United 2-0 on Sunday.
Tura Magic now comfortably lead the log with 46 points from 19 matches and are eight points ahead of second placed Monitronic College.
They have won 12, drawn 4 and only lost one of their 19 matches, while they have also scored a total of 50 goals to date.
Monitronic College moved one place up to second position on 38 points after beating Blue Boys 3-0 and Swakopmund FC 4-1 over the weekend.
With only three matches remaining, it is now highly unlikely that they will overtake Tura Magic on the log. Monitronic will have to win all three their remaining matches while Tura Magic will have to lose all three their matches.
Tura Magic will however have to wait a bit longer before they can start celebrating promotion to the Namibia Premier League after their Round 20 match was postponed. They were supposed to play Young Beauties on Saturday, May 5, but the match has been postponed due to the fact that they have several players in the national Under 20 team that will play against Rwanda in Kigali on the same day.
Blue Boys, who played in the Premier League last season, are third on the log on 33 points.
Rundu Chiefs lead Northern Stream
Rundu Chiefs meanwhile lead the Northern Stream First Division with 37 points from 18 matches. On April 28 they beat Golden Bigs 2-0 and the following day they beat Oshakati City 1-0.
Second placed Cuca Tops let slip a great opportunity to close the gap on Rundu Chiefs when they were held to a goalless draw by Young Rangers on April 28. The following day they managed to beat Chief Santos 3-1, but are now five points behind Rundu Chiefs on 32 points on the log.
Golden Bees are third on the log on 31 points, while former Premier League giants Chief Santos are fourth on 30 points.
Oshakati City, who played in the Premier League only two seasons ago have won only four matches the whole season and are currently third last on the log and in danger of being relegated.
The results of last weekend’s matches, the log positions as well as the upcoming matches for Round 20 and 21 are attached.
