The NFA Technical Centre is to host the NFA Women Super League match of the season as JS Academy and Okahandja Beauties go head to head in a top-of-the-log clash on Sunday.
The Jacqueline Shipanga (JS) Academy makes a return to action in the Super League after about three weeks due to most of their players being away on national duty to Germany.
Okahandja Beauties two weeks ago stretched their lead at the top of the NFA Women’s Super League to 34 points with a compressive 23-0 win over Challengers, but they can expect a tough match against JS Academy who aim to regain their top spot.
They are currently second on 31 points with two games in hand, having played only 12 matches.
Ahead of the clash on Sunday morning at 10h00 at the NFA Technical Centre, Beauties have made several signings this season with former Brave Gladiators captain, the tough tackling defender Eliakim Helvi and midfield maestro Maureen Cooper all boosting the defending champions.
JS Academy however will see the return of Zenata Coleman and will also be boosted by the left footed striking boots of Vistoria Shaangula. The 20-year old bulky Shaangula from Okahao in the Omusati Region is turning into a formidable striking sensation for both club and country.
Beauties’ Kleintjie Fredericks leads the top goal scorers chart with a 35 goals, while Juliana Skrywer is second with 28 and Zenatha Coleman third on 19 goals.
In other weekend matches, on Saturday JS Academy will take on 21 Brigade United at 10h00 at the NFA Technical Centre, while Challengers will host Beauties at 11h50.
On Sunday, Beauties take on JS Academy at 10h00, while 21 Brigade United take on Challengers at 11h50.
