WINDHOEK, 20 Mar. – Tura Magic continued their fine form by beating coastal side Blue Waters 2-0 in a Namibia Premier League match played at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Sunday.
On Saturday, they beat Eleven Arrows 3-0.
The Magicians, as Tura Magic are known by their fans, played most of the second half with 10 men after captain Itamunua Keimuine was sent off for a second yellow card.
Keimuine had earlier scored a goal for his team, with Unomasa Tjitaura adding the second in the first quarter of the match.
The win means Magic maintain their fifth position and also maintain their Premier League status and cannot be relegated this season.
They are joined by log leaders African Stars, Black Africa (BA), Young African and Tigers, who have all secured their league status for the next season.
In other matches played at the same stadium on Sunday, Orlando Pirates were beaten 1-2 by Young Chiefs, plunging them deep into the relegation zone.
Pirates now lie on position 13 out of 16 teams with 28 points.
Tigers beat Eleven Arrows 3-0 and jumped to fifth position, one place above UNAM.
Civics lost to Young African by 1-2 to complete the day’s proceedings at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
The win by Young African from the ‘Cattle Country’ saw them cement their third spot on the log on 42 points.
In Otjiwarongo’s Mokati Stadium, visiting UNAM fell 0-2 to Mighty Gunners, while Life Fighters beat Chief Santos 3-0.
Finally at the Rundu Sports Stadium, Rundu Chiefs beat Citizens 3-0 to boost their survival chances.
Chief Santos, Rundu Chiefs and Young Chiefs occupy the bottom three positions, while Pirates, Arrows, Civics, Citizens Fighters and Gunners are all hovering in the relegation zone with five games to go.
Stars will play BA to complete game week 24 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Tuesday, in a match which could either decide the 2017/18 season winner or throw the championship race wide open.
Stars lead BA by eight points and if the latter wins, that gap will be reduced to five points with five games to go, but if Stars win, they will open an 11-point lead which could prove difficult to close.
