BDO Wanderers within reach of top of the women hockey log

BDO Wanderers within reach of top of the women hockey log

The BDO Wanderers women hockey team ended the winning streak of the Saints beating them 2-0 in a crucial match played over the weekend in the Bank Windhoek Premier League.

Saints still occupies the top score in the league log with 12 points but they have played four matches so far. BDO Wanderers have only played 3 matches and not lost one. BDO Wanderers is currently at number two in the log with 11 points, a mere one point behind the Saints whom they stand a chance to lift from their first position if Wanderers win their fourth game and if they score enough goals. In Saturday’s match, Biance Muller scored both Wanderers’ goals.

The Saints, however, will not be that easy to trump as their goal record is impressive. In their four matches, they have scored 18 goals, while BDO Wanderers now stands at 8 goals after three matches.

In another match on Saturday, the women team from Windhoek Old Boys Sport Club bagged an easy victory over the uninspiring team from the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST). The Old Boys ladies are now in third position on the log with 8 points. The NUST team has yet to make any impression in this season’s league, having played and lost three games. They have zero points on the log.

In the match between Deutsche Turn und Sportverein (DTS) and the University of Namibia (UNAM), the academics posted a resounding 4-0 win, showing their mettle and the reason for their success in the indoors league. The four UNAM goals were scored by ace strikers, Viola Simon and Maggy Mango, two each. UNAM ranks in position number four with four points. DTS shares the bottom with NUST, also with zero points.

The Economist does not have a dedicated sport reporter. This designation is used for several contributors who want their sport stories in the Economist. Experience has taught us that companies usually want their sport sponsorships published prominently, being the reason for a sports category. It now also carries general sport items but only those with direct Namibian relevance. - Ed.
