LDF Ladies gun down Kick4Life

Maseru – Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) Ladies are in high spirits after defeating rivals Kick4Life 3-1 last Saturday in a potential Women’s Super League title decider.

LDF’s victory in Maputsoe has opened a six-point cushion between themselves at the top to second-placed Kick4Life with four matches to go.

However, despite their seemingly comfortable position, LDF assistant coach Lire Phiri says the Ratjomose outfit are “keeping cool heads” and will continue working hard until the finish line.

“Attendance (at training) is very important,” Phiri said.

“We are still holding our training sessions as usual. We are building from there and I think now it depends on players themselves to hold and grasp what we are trying to do. We will continue our methods until the end.”

So far their methods have worked.

LDF are undefeated in their ten matches this season, winning nine. The only time they failed to register a win was a stalemate with Kick4Life in the first round.

LDF also has the best defence in the league having conceded just three goals and they boast the division’s top goalscorer Kholu Lebakeng who has struck an impressive 14 goals.

With reigning Women’s Super League champions Stoko languishing in third place, LDF’s victory over Kick4Life has made them odds-on favourites to capture the title.

However, according to Phiri, LDF – who finished third last season – are not counting their chickens before they hatch.

“We are taking it game by game; we are learning from our past mistakes and approaching each game with strength,” he said.

“There are no small teams in the league,” Phiri added.

“We prepare for each game depending on who we are playing against.”
