Mascom Top 8 champions, BDF XI have been drawn against Township Rollers in the semi finals of the knockout competition in what is a remake of last year’s final.

But BDF XI vice secretary, Oarabile Setlhare retorted that the trophy would remain in their cabinet.

“The trophy will remain at SSKB. We do not care who we meet in the final although Gaborone United (GU) will suit us better because they owe us,” he said.
