Rollers extend log lead

Township Rollers have extended their lead at the top of the BTC Premiership log following Saturday’s triumph over arch rivals Gaborone United (GU). The Gaborone derby resulted in a 2-0 win for Rollers to claim the town. The win saw the ‘Blue Nation’, as Rollers are commonly known, extending their lead at the top of the log by three points with a total 31 points. Rollers are looking determined to defend the title they won last season after starting impressively. Jwaneng Galaxy are second with 28 points. The Jwaneng side that started the season on a very low note seem to be gaining momentum by the week. Galaxy have got a game in hand after their game against Gilport Lions was postponed on Sunday due to rain. On the other hand long time league leaders Orapa United continue to lose points following yet another draw against Security Systems. Madinda Ndlovu’s charges are now at position three on the log with 28 points. Maun-based Sankoyo Bush Bucks beat the visiting Black Forest 2-1 in Maun on Saturday. This saw Black Forest settling for position four with 23 points. The struggling Mahalapye United Hotspurs held Police XI to a goalless draw to collect a point. The point, however, did not make a difference as the premiership new entrants are still at the last pot with only nine points.
