NCS assume Southern Stream control

SEVEN goals and two clean sheets over the weekend saw the Namibian Correctional Services (NCS) dislodge fellow law enforcement agents Khomas Nampol from the top of the Southern Stream first division standings.

The NCS, along with Blue Boys, Mariental and Try Again, made sure of maximum points in a goal-laden weekend of action.

The new log leaders eased past Western Spurs 2-0 on Saturday before recording a statement 5-0 thumping of Northern Stars on Sunday.

The NCS now have 25 points from eight matches, three more than Nampol who began the weekend with a hard fought 3-2 victory over Spoilers from Okahandja on Saturday, but then lost by the same scoreline to Blue Boys the following day.

Blue Boys, who also also scored a 3-2 victory over DTS Hopsol on Saturday, moved one place up to third on the same amount of points, followed by a buoyant Mariental SC after their 2-1 and 1-0 wins over Northern Stars and bottom side Spurs.

Date Eleven dropped five points and two places to place fifth (16 points). They were held two-all by struggling Ramblers on Sunday, having lost 4-2 to Windhoek United a day earlier.

Third-from bottom at the start of match day nine, Try Again emerged from the festive recess a rejuvenated side, scorching Ramblers 3-1 and United 2-1 to jump to sixth on the log with 13 points on the board.

Spoilers are seventh (11 points) on the back of Sunday’s 1-0 win over DTS Hopsol (11), who dropped from sixth to eighth.

Northern Stars (10), United (9), Ramblers (8) and Spurs (2) complete the log in that order.
