NPL defending champions Black Africa FC have to wait until Tuesday next to find out if they have won championship again this season

WINDHOEK: The Namibia Premier League (NPL) defending champions Black Africa Football Club (FC) have to wait until Tuesday next week to find out if they have won the championship again this season.

Black Africa (BA) drew against Tura Magic FC yesterday in their last match of the 2013/14 Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC) NPL, taking their tally up to 46 points.

The wait is due to African Stars, who are currently second on the log with 45 points after beating Blue Boys 3-0 yesterday, having to conclude a match against Orlando Pirates which was abandoned in March this year after a power failure at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in the capital with only eight minutes of play left on the clock.

Before the lights went out, Pirates were leading 2-0.

Stars thus have to score two goals within eight minutes to draw against Pirates.

A draw will put Stars level on points with BA, but Stars will have amassed a better goal difference to win the league.

Stars unsuccessfully appealed to replay the entire match, and not only eight minutes as per the Namibia Premier League rules and regulations.
