Bantu, Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) and Likila United maintained their good start to the new season last weekend, as they all registered their second victories of the 2014/15 Vodacom Premier League campaign.

Bantu edged Likhopo 1-0 after beating Kick4Life 2-1 in the opening week of the season, a fortnight ago.

Newly promoted Likila United were the biggest winners of the weekend matches as they beat Linare 2-1—their second victory against the country’s big guns after shocking Likhopo by the same score-line in their first match of topflight football.

Rejuvenated LCS, on the other hand, had to sweat to get the three maximum points, registering a narrow 1-0 win over Premier League newboys, Kick4Life, after thumping police side, LMPS, 5-2 two weeks ago.

Lesotho’s most successful club, Matlama, lost 1-2 against LDF, after drawing one-all with Mphatlalatsane on the opening day of the new season on 23 August.

Meanwhile, Qoaling Highlanders registered their first win of the new season, beating Mphatlalatsane 2-1. There was also victory for Sundawana FC, who beat Nyenye Rovers 2-1 for their first win of the season, while the match between LMPS and Lioli failed to take place due to the political unrest in the country.

The league programme now goes on a break and only resumes on 13 September as the national team, Likuena, have two Africa Cup of Nations group-stage qualifiers against Burkina Faso on Saturday (6 September) away from home and host Gabon at Setsoto stadium next Wednesday (10 September).

It might be early days yet but after the weekend matches,  LCS top the log-standings, while Bantu are second and Likila United occupy third place on the 14-team table.
