Outdoor Hockey League brings a few surprises
10 October 2019 | Sports
On the other hand, the women’s division looks done and dusted, as Saints keep the lead at the top of the table.
Men’s Premier League
As it stands, defending champions Saints who are on top of the Men’s Premier League with 14 points, got a shocker last week when they were held to a one-all draw by a pumped-up Windhoek Old Boys Sports Club (WOBSC). To Saints, the draw felt like a defeat since DTS sit second on the league table after putting in a great performance when they defeated Wanderers 6:1. The result means that only two points separate the top two teams on the league table.
WOBSC are currently third with a two point deficit compared to DTS. At the moment, WOBSC’s scoring has been decent as they top the charts with 18 goals. Their only weakness is in defence, which has seen them lose ten goals.
Further down the table, UNAM and Wanderers are both seated on the same spot on eight points. Besides X Team, who are at the bottom of the league table after losing all their matches, the top five teams are separated by a mere six points.
Women’s Premier League
Saints continue to dominate the league with a comfortable 18 point lead. It remains to be seen if any other clubs will still be able to catch up, taking into account that two-thirds of all fixtures have been completed in this league. Also, Saints have accumulated a 21 point goal difference.
UNAM and WOBSC are both second on the log with seven points each and this certainly seems to be the only spot the two teams will try to contest this season. Wanderers and DTS round off the table as they occupy the last two remaining places with DTS sitting on zero points compared to Wanderers’ who have amassed four points.
The seventh week of the Bank Windhoek National Outdoor Hockey League continues on Friday (11 and Saturday (12 October) at the Windhoek High School hockey turfs.
