Former MTC Premiership campaigners Rebels, who have made a quick retreat to the country’s second-tier division, are finding the going tough as the Khomasdal outfit find themselves marooned at the bottom of the highly competitive 12-team MTC Southern Stream Division One League after 10 rounds of matches.
Relegated from the country’s flagship league in their maiden appearance at the end of last season, Rebels suffered an exodus of players who left to seek greener pastures with various teams in the MTC Premier League.
Bertus Bock’s fragile soldiers could only manage a sole victory, suffering five defeats while four matches were drawn.
At the top half of the log table, despite suffering an unexpected 2-0 defeat at the hands of former Premier League outfit PC Blue Boys, Mali Ngarizemo’s Young African team remains firmly in the driving seat and tops the list with 24 points out of a possible 30, with only two losses.
Khomasdal Nampol and TD Young Brazilians are trailing in 2nd and 3rd place with 3 and 7 points off the pace, respectively. Three other teams, Try Again, PC Blue Boys and Ramblers, are tailing in joint 4th place on 14 points apiece.
