SNWL: Newcomers JVW continue great run


Safa National Women’s League (SNWL) newcomers JVW Girls underlined their title credentials with another convincing 5-0 win over Durban Ladies at the weekend as they maintained their 100 percent record in their maiden season.

JVW are yet to suffer defeat and from the look of things, are set to give defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies a stiff challenge for the league title. They have so far swept aside any challenge in this early start to the season, sending a chilling warning to other contenders.

Current SNWL champions, Sundowns laboured for most of the 90 minutes but managed to walk away with all three points with a 1-0 win over University of the Western Cape.

The ‘Brazilians’ lie second with the same number of points as JVW but are placed second on the log on goal difference along with First Touch Ladies in third place – all on nine points after three matches.

The defending champions are also yet to lose a match this season.

Meanwhile, First Touch walked away 2-0 winners over Golden Ladies. TUT Ladies chalked up their second win of the season by dismissing Thunderbirds Ladies 1-0 over the weekend to occupy fourth position.

Richmond United also showed their credentials with a convincing 4-1 win over University of Johannesburg in De Aar.

Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies got their first win of the season with a convincing 3-1 win over Tsunami Queens while Coal City Wizards are yet to win a match after being held to a goalless draw by Ma-Indies away from home.
