Galaxy Queens Collect Win Under Returnee Coach

It was a good return for Sizwe Sibiya to the dugout as TS Galaxy Queens thrashed Lindelani Ladies 6-1 in his first match back as head coach of the Rockets at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday.

Nomvula Kgoale opened the scoring, while Nicole Michael scored a brace, with the other goals coming from captain Mamello Makhabane, Promise Selana and Busisiwe Ndimeni. The win saw the Mpumalanga-based outfit rise to sixth position on the log with 15 points from eight matches, while the newcomers remained second from bottom, with four points from the same number of games. Sibiya was recalled to the side to replace Ashraf Calvert who started the season with the team but had inconsistent results.

Meanwhile, the top three remained unchanged from last week, with Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies leading the pack on 21 points after their 5-1 win over troubled Thunderbirds Ladies. Rhoda Mulaudzi scored one of the fastest goals this season as she opened for the defending champions in the first minute at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, followed by Reginah Mogolola, Malebogo Shawe and a late Andisiwe Mgcoyi brace in their eighth match of the campaign. Thunderbirds are winless in nine matches and they sit at the foot of the table with no point.

Elsewhere, Makua Machaka scored the only goal for University of Pretoria (Tuks), as they won 1-0 over First Touch Academy in Lebowakgomo to stay right behind Sundowns tied on 21 points in eight outings. The Limpopo side remained in 10th place with 12 points from nine matches.

University of Johannesburg (UJ) maintained third place on the log after their 2-0 victory over University of Fort Hare. The Orange Army are now two points from the top two sides but have played a game more. The rookies from Eastern Cape dropped to 13th position with seven points from eight outings.
