Tura Magic and Galz and Goals kept their hopes of playing in the final of the Women Super Cup alive after their victories on Saturday at the Namibia Football Association Technical Centre.

In the opening match of the first leg of the semi-finals, Galz and Goals defeated 2017 Super Cup winner Khomas NamPol by a single goal in one of the most exciting matches that saw both teams displaying brilliant ball skills and position.

A moment of brilliance from Beverly Ueziua in the first half of the match was all that Galz and Goals needed to secure an advantage going into their return leg which is scheduled for the weekend of 20 February 2021.

Meanwhile, in the second semi-final of the day, Tura Magic was kept at bay by V-Power Angels in the opening 41 minutes of the game but their dominance came to the fore when they opened the scoring with a penalty by Tomalina Adams just before half time break.

In the second half Tura Magic goal poacher, Anna Shikusho scored a brace to give her team a healthy advantage going into the second leg.

In an interview with the media, Tura Magic coach Shama Gure said despite winning their first match with three goals they are still not yet safe.

“We are going back to the drawing board as we prepare for the second leg next week because today we did not play our type of football but I am happy that the girls gave it their all to give us this win,” Gure said.

V-Power Angels coach Risto Shikomba told Nampa on the sideline that he still has hope of reaching the final.

“Today our plan did not work out and that does not mean we are out of this competition, we are going to prepare well, and come Saturday we will work towards reaching the final,” he said.

Ronnie Hoxobeb, Galz and Goals coach told this agency that going into the second leg with a one-goal lead doesn’t keep them on the safe side saying they are going to work hard towards winning their next match with Khomas NamPol.
