Just like Sinthumulekutama, Sisters have not yet lost a league match this season.

The struggle for survival is among four teams: Masakona Liberty Experience, Real Mighty Girls, Tshandama Young Stars, and Merwe United Ladies FC. Merwe are languishing at the bottom of the log with three points, while Young Stars and Mighty Ladies are tied on five points each. Liberty Experience have managed to deposit six points into their league account to date.

Ramatlaohle Ladies are shining at the top of Stream A with 21 points. University of Limpopo Ladies are close behind in second position with 18 points, while Marumo Gallants are in third place after collecting 16 points in their first-round campaign.

Following the conclusion of their first-round league programme over the past weekend, the teams have been given a break of two weeks.
