Swakopmund-based women’s soccer club Namib Daughters cruised to an emphatic 9-2 victory over Okakarara Golden Ladies during their final group stage Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women’s Super Cup encounter at the in NFA Technical Centre Stadium in Windhoek.

Although the coastal team gained an easy victory, they were unable to proceed to the semi-finals as only the winners of the four respective groups could advance.

At halftime, the score stood at 3-1 in the Daughters’ favour and in the second half, they piled on the pressure, scoring six more goals in merciless style.

Namib Daughters’ goal scorers were Ignasia Haoses (3), Geraldine Skrywer (3), Precious Hambira, Sarafina Khuruses (penalty) and Petronela Somses.

According to Namib Daughters’ head coach Ryaan Matsi, although his team showed a dominant display throughout the match, he was unhappy that the players squandered numerous goal-scoring opportunities. “It was also very hot. This may have been the reason we didn’t score more goals,” he said.

According to Matsi, Namib Daughters hardly get any game time as there are not many other women’s teams in Swakopmund. Despite this, he has noted a big improvement in their play. “People were so surprised. They asked if it was the Namib Daughters of old because we were playing so differently.”

The NFA Women’s Super League is expected to start in April, if the Covid-19 situation in the country and its regulations do not deteriorate.

In the meantime, coach Matsi has set his sights on claiming the ultimate prize in the league. “I am still scouting players so that I can recruit them to make the team stronger. Our aim is to win the league.”

Namib Daughters finished second in Group B on six points. They secured two wins in the process and a solitary loss. However, they were ousted by V-Power Angels, who won all three their group games to collect the maximum nine points.

Ramblers and Okakarara Golden Ladies ended third and fourth in Group B with one point each.

Group A was won by Galz & Goals (9 points), while Khomas Nampol and Tura Magic Ladies were first in Group C and D respectively, with six points each.

The two semi-finals will take place at the NFA Technical Centre Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday, 13 February.

The semi-final fixtures are:

Galz & Goals vs Khomas Nampol at 10:00
V-Power Angels vs Tura Magic Ladies at 12:30
