At the coast, Rehoboth-based outfit Flamingoes put up a great fight to hold coastal giants Blue Waters to a 1-all draw and Black Africa managed a 1-0 victory over Eleven Arrows. In the first and only league opening match played on Friday evening in the capital at Independence Stadium, Tura Magic also delivered a gallant performance, which saw them share spoils in a goalless draw against Orlando Pirates.
