Namibia Premier League
Itâ??s crunch time as Pirates take on Civics
Defending champions Civics and pretenders to the throne Orlando Pirates face each other in a crucial Namibia Premier League match at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Friday night.
After being amongst the early pace setters, both sides suffered shock defeats in the previous round and have subsequently dropped down to fourth and fifth positions on the log.
Pirates have assembled arguably the strongest squad in the league, and were the early pace setters, but succumbed to their first defeat against African Stars on November 2.
Pirates were without their top players who were on national duty, but they were made to look ordinary and ineffective by a determined Stars side for whom their industrious striker Brouwers Litombo scored the winning goal.
With national players Athiel Mbaha, Rudi Louw, Richard Gariseb and Patrick Jagger back in the team Pirates will be back to their best and will be going all out for a victory.
Civics were severely weakened when they had to do without five national players against Black Africa on October 31.
Civics wasted several scoring chances in the first half and were made to pay for it when Jerome Louis scored BAâ??s winner in the second half â?? a result which has put BA at the top of the log.
Coach Helmuth Scharnowski was furious at the wasted chances after the game and acknowledged that the defeat could hurt their title ambitions.
With their five national players back in the team, they will be much stronger, but they canâ??t afford another slip-up. A battle royal can be expected.
Black Africa v Ramblers
Black Africa surprisingly took over at the top of the Premier League after beating Civics 1-0 on October 31 through a goal by Jerome Louis.
Some say that was a lucky victory since Civics were not at full strength, but Black Africaâ??s title credentials will be fully tested by second-placed Ramblers at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Sunday.
Black Africaâ??s young squad has developed considerably over the past year and with coach Smedley Engelbrecht back at the helm, they just might have what it takes to be turned into championship material. Young players like Louis, Donovan Swartz, Gella Kandjimi, Da Costa Angula and Arnold Subeb have turned in quality performances and this could finally be their year.
They will however face tough opponents in Ramblers who are still undefeated.
Ramblers also have a strong and settled squad and players like Michael Pienaar, Bernadine Mbilizi, Nelson Akwenye, Samson John and the latest Brave Warrior, Pinias Jacob are amongst the best in their positions.
It should be a real humdinger, with Ramblers possibly possessing too much experience.
Oshakati v Blue Waters
In other matches this weekend, Oshakati City take on APS Blue Waters in Tsumeb, Fedics host Eleven Arrows in Keetmanshoop and Cymot SKW host Mighty Gunners in Windhoek.
Oshakati secured their first victory against Tigers last weekend and should once again be too strong for Blue Waters, who are having a dreadful season. They nearly lost at home to bottom-of-the-log Fedics until a last minute equaliser by Kenny Malgas gave them a point.
Fedics proved that they can be competitive in the top flight and will be hoping for their first victory at home to Eleven Arrows.
SKW will also be hoping for a victory against Mighty Gunners, but they will have to improve on last weekendâ??s performance when they were held to a dull 0-0 draw by Eleven Arrows
Camel Dash for Cash
On Saturday November 10th the 2nd Leg of the international "Camel MX-Dash for Cash" motocross gets started at the Gallina Moto Cross Park, 15km outside of Windhoek, on the road towards Okahandja.
Close to 90 riders in all Classes will battle it out for glory and prize money.
Riders flown in from Europe will fight versus the best riders from southern Africa like Angola, Botswana, Zambia, South Africa and host country Namibia.
After the first race we have the following constellation: Hot favourite for the overall victory is in the moment Kerim Fitzgerald from South Africa on 60 points. Botswana-boy Ross Branch constantly collecting points, is found in 2nd position on same amount of points (49) as Brandon Wheeler from South Africa.
In 4th position on 40 points we find Lloyd Vercueil (RSA) who gave the spectators a demonstration of mx-racing, but had a gearbox-problem in the E.L. Sea Products King of the Dirt race and had to withdraw. Should he be able to win all 3 Heats this Saturday he still can become â??Namibia International Championâ?!
Dutchman Mart de Jong had no stamina last Saturday due to dehydration, if he can regain his full bodystrength we will find him on the rostrum. Best Namibian in the points-log is Frank Klosta who is leading countrymen Tommi Gous and Rainer Becker.
The reigning â??Namibia International Championâ? Benny Kolberg lost too many points in the first leg to turn the tide. But if he can overcome his neurological neck-pain he will be a force to reckon with! Christof Schade from Germany could not demonstrate his full potential due to a seized motor. Obviously he will try to better his points-log, same applies to Scotsman Richard Reid.
The Windhoek Moto Cross Club expects 25 riders participating the the internationl â??E.L.Sea Products King of the Dirtâ? race. Adrenalin-rushes guaranteed!
After the international racing is over, the â??Tafel Lager Nightâ? gets started!
Under floodlight the Windhoek Moto Cross Club stages the "International Freestyle Show" with some top Freestylers from the Czech-Republic! Come and witness some awesome aerobatics including backflip-combinations! Seeing is believing!
Then the â??Tafel Lager Nightâ? offers the Stefan Ludik Show with band , followed by Double-Troubleâ?¦brought to you by Tafel Lager! The JÃ¤germeiste â??Party afterwards with DJ Co-Co is legend alreadyâ?¦with open-end. This is the Party of the year, without any doubt!
