Blue Waters stop Stars
Blue Waters ended African Stars 19-match unbeaten streak with a narrow 1-0 win in Walvis Bay on Saturday.
An own goal in the first half by trusted defender Chris Katjiukua ended up to be the only goal of the match which gave Okazerandu the first loss of the season.
The result means Waters move two places up to seventh on the log.
Black Africa who had earlier stretched the lead at the top of the log with a 3-0 trouncing over SKW on Wednesday are now four points ahead of Stars who are in second with 29 points.
BA has 33 points, and with eight matches to go, the interesting fact is that four points is the biggest ever point margin between the 1st and the 2nd team in all rounds this season.
Civics has for the second consecutive match lost to Rundu teams; the first was a 7-6 penalty shoot-outs loss to United Stars in the Bidvest Namibia Cup round of 32 after a goalless draw in normal time. On Saturday, another defeat came against Rundu Chiefs in the league, a 2-0 loss in a match played at Rundu Sports stadium. Chiefs are still at the basement of the log on 11 points, the same points as 11th placed Tura Magic who dropped one place. Civics is ninth with 14 points.
Elsewhere Orlando Pirates moved to third place, a position they occupied in six of the 14 rounds played this season. Pirates beat Tura Magic 2-1 on Friday, completing their 100% against the Magicians in the league, having defeated the same team 1-0 in round three.
Ramblers and Tigers failed to use their home ground advantage to collect maximum points. Ramblers who have last beaten Mighty Gunners in November 2011 suffered their fourth loss of the season, losing 3-1 in Windhoek. The match between Tigers and Eleven Arrows ended in a 0-all stalemate. Ramblers are now in fourth with 22points followed by Tigers who have the same points but inferior goal difference. Arrows remained sixth on the, with 17 points while Gunners move one place up to 10th.
