With teams slowly starting to get into the swing of things in the Inland Provinces, week six of the Sasol League produced some exciting results as teams seek to get a spot in the prestigious national championships.
Once again, there was a flurry of goals as a total of 95 goals were scored in the 20 games that were played over the weekend. While it is still early stages of the tournament, teams are making their intentions clear that they are going to challenge defending champions Palace Super Falcons for the title.
The match between Kanatla Ladies and Development was a one-sided affair as the former fired 10 goals past an out-of-sorts Development. With that emphatic result, Kanatla showed they would be a force to reckon with this season.
With the likes of UJ, Tuks, Mamelodi Sundowns, Moroka Swallows and Palace Super Falcons, Gauteng Province will be the most competitive of all provinces taking part in the league.
The clash between Sundowns and Swallows was a seven-goal thriller with the team from Pretoria winning 5-2 against the ladies from Dube who despite the scoreline, showed resilience and fighting spirit.
Croesus Ladies also showed they are not a team to be taken lightly this season when they massacred Katlehong Eagles 11-0 in one of the highest scoring matches this season.
Unfortunately, one of the most anticipated matches of the weekend between defending champions Palace Super Falcon and the University of Johannesburg (UJ) failed to take place after the latter arrived late and thereby forfeited the points to the defending champions.
This weekend will see the Coastal Provinces’ two streams play their first games of the 2013 season.
