Tafic or Motlakase or…

Debswana First Division North League (FDN) will go down to the wire to pick its winner. Just two points do separate the top two in the FDN League with a single game to go. It does not get much more sphincter-clenching than that, as TAFIC Sporting Club and Motlakase Power Dynamos fight for automatic promotion to topflight football. Such has been the inconsistency of sides again this season, which it is almost impossible to predict what will happen with only an encounter left to be played. At the beginning of the season, it was BR Highlanders that showed early signs of clinching the title. Then came Sua Flamingoes FC followed by Motlakase Power Dynamos before TAFIC maintained the top spot for the better part of the second round of the lower division. “We are heading for a final day drama,” TAFIC head coach Elias Chinyemba, whose side walloped Chobe United 2-1 at the dusty Prisons Grounds in the resort township of Kasane last Saturday, said in an interview. Chinyemba likened the situation with that of the Zambian-born Isaac Chansa ripped out Ajax Cape Town hearts and ignited those of Orlando Pirates with that late winner against Golden Arrows in the South African Premier league a few years ago. Seeped in the average, the drama in the last two weekends (including this weekend) should be a high octane. Even BR Highlanders, Motlakase Power Dynamos, TAFIC and Sua Flamingoes; they all have a shot at glory.
This means that Tafic have to beat Sua Flamingoes while a draw of loss could see Motlakase qualify if they dispose off Great North Tigers.
