Namibia: Ba and Stars in Goalless Draw

Katutura glamour football team African Stars maintained their strong hold at the top of the table, when they played to a 0-0 draw against defending champions Black Africa, in a highly entertaining MTC Premiership League encounter at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday.

Billed as the mother of all local derbies, both teams showed some great composure right from the onset, but Ali Akan's team had a slight upper hand in midfield, with the ever enterprising Johannes "Boetietjie" Seibeb and Jamu Ngatjizeko engineering some great counter-attacks which had no effect on BA's ever alert defence.

The fairly well attended match produced some great football and both teams battled it out shoulder to shoulder and finished the 1st half 0-0.

The 2nd half also went down in similar fashion, but the lack of goals kept supporters of both teams on the edges of their seats for the entire duration of the encounter. The match ended 0-0.

In other results, Ramblers were also held to a 2-2 draw by Blue Waters on Saturday, while Orlando Pirates recorded their 5th victory with a 1-0 win against Tigers on Friday.

Eleven Arrows dusted themselves off with a hard fought 2-1 win against Mighty Gunners on Saturday in Otjiwarongo, while stragglers Rundu Chiefs finally tasted victory when they earned their first win (3-1) against fellow tyros Tura Magic, also on Saturday.
