Big guns battle for Top 8 honours

Big guns battle for Top 8 honours

MASERU – Lesotho’s big guns will battle it out this weekend as the Lesotho National Insurance Group (LNIG) Top 8 reaches its climax at Setsoto stadium. Four combatants – Lioli, Bantu, Matlama and Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) – will enter the ring on Saturday but, in the end, only one will capture the M100 000 first prize treasure on offer.

It could go to any of the four sides with LCS’s semi-final against Bantu just as hard to call as the clash of rivals between Lioli and Matlama.
Will Sunday’s final be Bantu versus Lioli? Lioli against LCS? Bantu and Matlama? Or could it be Matlama taking on LCS? It is impossible to tell and this week has been filled with intense debates amongst the clubs’ supporters predicting the winner.

Saturday will see the two semi-finals with defending LNIG Top 8 champions Lioli taking on Matlama in the first game at 1pm.
Both teams defied the odds to get this far as they overturned first leg deficits against Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) and Kick4Life respectively in the quarterfinals.
