Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

Liphakoe boosted their chance of a re­turn to topflight foot­ball as they opened a nine-point lead over sec­ond­placed Ma­jan­tja last week­end.

The Quthing-based out­fit regis­tered their sev­enth straight win since the A Di­vi­sion South­ern Stream started in Septem­ber, beat­ing Van Rooyen 2-0 at home.

In ad­di­tion to win­ning all their matches, Liphakoe are yet to con­cede a goal and sit com­fort­ably at the sum­mit of the 10-team ta­ble with 21.

Liphakoe’s pro­mo­tion am­bi­tious were fur­ther boosted by Ma­jan­tja’s in­sis­tent per­for­mance, who suf­fered a shock 1-3 loss to Fis­ters at home in Mo­hale’s Hoek.

Melele, rel­e­gated from the Premier League last sea­son, are in third place on 13 points.

In the North­ern Stream, Rovers re­main at the top of the ta­ble with 20 points after nine matches.

The univer­sity team have a four­point ad­van­tage over sec­ond-placed Litha­ba­neng Golden.

Rovers played to a one-all draw away to CCX last Sun­day, while Litha­ba­neng Golden col­lected all three points fol­low­ing a 2-1 win over Maseru Naughty Boys the same day.
