YOUNG AFRICAN MOVE SECOND ON THE NPL TABLE

YOUNG AFRICAN MOVE SECOND ON THE NPL TABLE

Newly promoted Gobabis-based Young African moved second on the Namibia Premier League table after beating Black Africa at the Sam Nujoma stadium in Windhoek last night.

It has become the norm that most of the promoted clubs have to put up a fight to stay in the league in their first season after their promotion.

But this does not seem to be the case with Young African, as they are challenging for the league title.

This revelation comes after they defeated Tura Magic in one of the high profile games this weekend.

After a goalless first half it was the Zimbabwean winger that opened the score for the Gobabis-based team. Shooting form close rang.

Not long after the first goal the red and white outfit were at it again and it was another Zimbabwean National who made an impact.

The two nil victory moved Young African into second place, a point above Black Africa.

Black Africa were next on the field as they took on current champions Tigers.

They needed to win to reclaim the second spot on the table.

With that in mind Lucky Richter's troops could have not asked for a better start.

However, Tigers equalised through Brendly Wermann's free kick five minutes before the break.

Tigers came back much stronger in the second half

It ended Tigers 2 Black Africa 1 and Black Africa remains in third position on the table, while Tigers moved to the top half of the table.
