The fight for the league points will continue among the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League this weekend. All matches will be played at different venues throughout the province tomorrow afternoon.

The match not to be missed will be the Vhembe derby between Chippas United Ladies and Shayandima Morning Stars at the Makhuvha Stadium. The two teams are closely contesting the league title.

Morning Stars are currently leading the pack with 13 points accumulated from five matches. Chippas are in the third spot with 10 points.

The Stars’ defenders will have the mammoth task to stop the Chippas’ strikers, Maggie Mukhuwana, Mashalane Makwena and Edzani Ramaano.

Morning Stars are still to lose a league match this season. Their worst result was a 1-1 draw against Maindis Ladies at the Shayandima School grounds early last month. The Stars’ strikers, Mmaleako Mojapelo, Maureen Morudi and Tshifhiwa Khangale, are expected to keep the Chippas running for cover for the better part of the game.

The other fixtures are Maindis Ladies vs Samba Girls; Real Mighty Girls vs Botlokwa Ladies;  Tshandama Young Stars vs Sisters FC; Moria Sweepers vs Fifty Stars Ladies; Mandebele Happy Fighters vs Re Tla Dira Ladies; Kanatla Ladies vs Seven Stars Ladies and University of Limpopo vs Skimzozo Ladies.
