REHOBOTH, 18 JUN – Southern Stream First Division Coastal Stream Khomas Namibian Police (NamPol) Football Club beat Flamingoes 2-1 on Sunday in a match played in Walvis Bay at the Kuisebmund Stadium.
The men in uniform bounced back from a disappointing defeat against PC Blue Boys on Saturday and scored through Diogenus Indeimo and Eben Abraham to take the title race to the wire.
Speaking to Nampa on Sunday after the match, coach of NamPol, Gareth #Eichab said he had to make five changes from the team that lost on Saturday and the aim was to score one goal and defend.
“I had to make the five changes as per the game plan on Sunday and it eventually worked. The game was tough and we had to work hard in the midfield and rely on counter attacks,” he added.
The plan is to remain in the league for now and challenge next season, he continued.
“Although we are tight on 13 points with log leaders Spoilers, I think we are out of the race as we only have one game remaining against the leaders and the title is for other teams to fight for,” he remarked.
In another match played on Sunday in Swakopmund, Mondesa Stadium saw home team PC Blue Boys held to a 2-all draw by Spoilers after coming back from a goal through Quincy So-oabeb to salvage a much-needed point to stay in hunt for the title.

Western Spurs, Blue Boys, Flamingoes and Northern Stars have two games remaining, while Spoilers and NamPol have only one game left.
