MASERU- Limkokwing University Women Football Club Ladies (LUWFC) suffered their first hefty loss over the weekend since their promotion to the Women Super League earlier this year.

Their assailants FC Stoko of Maputsoe clobbered them a debilitating 11 -0. This was the debutantes’ fifth game in the big league and they have lost all their five matches.

Their second heaviest loss was a 5 -0 hiding at the hands of reigning champions LDF Ladies. LUWFC and fellow debutantes, Thaba-Tseka Ladies (TTL), joined the eight-team league at the beginning of the season to bring the total of teams to 10.

TTL turned their fortunes and earned their first point when they drew 2 -2 with Sky Battalion. Likewise, they had lost all their previous games before they held the Mohale’s Hoek outfit to a draw.

In the absence of the head coach who let them into the elite league due to work commitments, the assistant coach is left with huge shoes to fill. Assistant Coach Tokelo Francis Mosia has attributed their consistent heavy losses to the lack of experience in the big league.

“This is our first season, and things are not looking good on our side. But the team is working tirelessly to turn things around. I think we have a very good team, we just need a bit of polishing,” Mosia said

The team is halfway through the first round and has failed to pick even a single point; for his part, TTL’s coach Bolokoe Mohale said he was content with his charges’ performance.

“We have been together for a brief time but the girls have been wonderful. They are a group of young girls doing wonders together. They gained promotion and showed bravery against the league’s top dogs,” he said.
