Namib Daughters dealt second defeat

Mixed results for Swakopmund based team

19 November 2018 | Sports

Memory Hansen; Namib Daughters' coach; "Being in the top five means we are doing well,”

Speaking to Erongo after the game, Daughters' coach Memory Hansen said that her team is progressing well despite the humbling defeat.

“Our opponents basically make up the majority of the Brave Gla­diators team and they are at an advanced stage in terms of technical skills as well as physique compared to my girls. This is the first season for my team in the Skorpion Zinc NFA Women's Super League and being in the top five means we are doing well.”

Going into the game, Namib Daughters recorded mixed results in the five matches they already played, however, Hansen was optimistic of getting the three points although she was not satisfied with her team's preparation leading up to the match.

The defence seemed to be back to the rock solid last line which fans have grown accustomed to. Namib Daughters defeated Windhoek-based side UNAM Bokkies by a solitary goal and in the process kept a clean sheet before taking on Tura Magic.

This was some sort of redemption after a visit to Windhoek went catastrophically wrong as Namib Daughters were thumped 12-0 by the high flying Khomas Nampol.

Before the football lesson they received from Khomas Nampol, Namib Daughters were undefeated. Daughters were in fine form and easily beat NUST Babes 4-1 on 20 October at the Vineta sports field. The game saw the team's most prolific goal scorer Ignacia Haoses net a hat-trick. Haoses' has an impressive record in front of goal this season having found the back of the net on seven occasions already.

Namib Daughters' only draw of the campaign came on 13 October at the NFA (Namibia Football Association) Technical Centre in Windhoek when they faced home side Right Way Ladies. Both teams' defences were far from impressive as they leaked goals in a dramatic 3-3 draw.

Namib Daughters outclassed Girls Football Academy 2-0 in their opening game of the season on 6 October in Windhoek.

With three wins, one draw and two defeats, Namib Daughters are not out of the title race yet as they seem to be dark horses to take the title home. Daughters currently occupy fourth place in the log standings with ten points from six games. They have scored 10 goals and conceded 25.

Tura Magic occupies the first place with 16 points. They have won five games, recorded one draw and scored 39 goals without conceding a single goal.
