SNWL Wrap: TUT thrash UJ, Downs extend winning streak


Tshwane University of Technology Ladies (TUT) made lightwork of the University of Johannesburg Ladies (UJ) as they thrashed them 10-0 in a Safa National Women’s League (SNWL) encounter at Uj Soweto Campus Stadium on Saturday.

TUT Ladies captain Hildah Magaia scored a double hattrick (6 goals) while her partner in crime Pride Nthite hit 4 goals to see their side move into second position on the log standings.

The Tshwane based side is the highest-scoring team with 54 goals, followed by Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies on 45 goals.

Magaia is currently the leading top scorer in the SNWL with 23 goals from 14 matches.

Log leaders Sundowns Ladies extended their winning streak to 14 consecutive victories when they comfortably beat Durban Ladies 3-1 at Chloorkop Ground. In the process, Sundowns Ladies stretched their lead at the top to 7 points over second-placed TUT Ladies.

At the Jan Smuts Stadium in East London, Thunderbirds Ladies held the University of Western Cape Ladies (UWC) to a goalless draw while Coal City Wizards beat Richmond Ladies 1-0 at Sinaba Stadium in Daveyton.

Richmond’s shaky and leaky defence has picked up the ball 48 times at the back of the net and they remain rooted at the bottom of the log.

The game between Golden Ladies and First Touch Ladies was cancelled at the halfway stage on Saturday with Golden Ladies leading 1-0.

According to SABC Sport reporter Lethabo Kganyago, the match started an hour late due to the unavailability of referees.

A team of three arrived to officiate the game at Montshiwa stadium while the match commissioner arrived at 18:00.

One of the Touch Ladies players was injured and had to be rushed to the hospital at half-time leaving the match without medics. Match referee called the game off in the second half.
