UNAM ladies favourites for National Indoor hockey league

UNAM ladies favourites for National Indoor hockey league

The National Indoor Hockey League concludes this weekend when all participating teams will play their final games at the DTS Sports Field on Saturday 22 April 2017.

As the league currently stands, Windhoek Old Boys Sports Club (WOBSC) will remain champions unless they lose against DTS. Meanwhile, Saints will have to win all of their remaining fixtures with bonus points to be crowned champions.

But DTS still has a chance if Saints and Old Boys slip up in one of their remaining games since they are placed third on the table.

Earlier in the Men’s Premier League, BDO Wanderers beat the NUST team 4 – 0 while in the Women’s League, the NUST ladies lost to UNAM

Later on in the week, in the Men’s Premier League, Saints battled it out against UNAM. The stakes were high as Saints had to win to stay in touch with the front runner, Old Boys in a very competitive game.

UNAM eventually came out as the winners with a score of 6 – 4. Heinie Swartbooi scored two vital goals for UNAM as they hampered Saints first title challenge.

Overall in the Men’s division, Mad Ma tops the log with a comfortable 45 points. Saints and DTS are second and third, both with 34 points.

In the Women’s division, UNAM is at the top of the log, with Saints second (25 points) and WOBSC third with 23 points.

The league is sponsored by Bank Windhoek.
