At the rate RC Mills are going team manager Corrie Coetzee must be anticipating a hefty bank balance once the season is over.

Galeshewe’s Royal Wizard and Keimoes-based RC Mills respectively head up the two streams of the Northern Cape Sasol League log as the conference heads for its seventh round on Saturday.

RC Mills hold the bragging rights to a solid 18 points after taking full match points for all six of their matches played thus far in the A-stream conference. In addition to this the Keimoes lasses have scored a massive 40 goals and only conceded eight to opposition teams.

On Saturday RC Mills will travel to the Kuruman district, for the fourth time this season, where Tlhapeng Flowers resides alongside six other Sasol League A-stream teams.

At the rate RC Mills are going team manager Corrie Coetzee must be anticipating a hefty bank balance once the season is over.

His side only have to travel to Kuruman to honour all their league fixtures and the Kuruman-based teams likewise only travel to Keimoes where RC Mills are based.

In contrast, in the B-stream of the league Royal Wizards have, as per usual, made the trip to three other venues in the Province to honour their league fixtures to accumulate their 16 match points.

Wizards have won only five of those clashes and drew another.

However, their goals tally is a bankable 48 goals with only four goals conceded in return.

The B-stream teams in particular achieve these sorts of results against the background of Safa’s singular lack of enthusiasm when it comes to compensating teams that travel excessively to honour fixtures.

To achieve this kind of result this season alone Wizards have faced extreme travel hazards such as the team having to travel on the back of the owner’s aged pick-up truck to places such as Carnarvon situated roughly 400km from Kimberley, De Aar (approximately 300km) and Kuruman which is about 280km away.

If it’s any consolation, Wizards will host fellow homegirls Galeshewe Ladies for their seventh game on Saturday at the Redirile school grounds in a match starting at 3pm.

Of the league laggards Kuruman’s Sesheng Ladies and Phillipstown Ladies bring up the rear of their respective streams with no points to their names.
