A single spot is up for grabs in the DTCB Women's Championship national finals as pitched battles are expected this weekend in the South Block playoffs.

The quartet of BDF XI, Gaborone United (GU), Royal Fighters and Zodiac Collabo Girls are vying for a spot in the national championship finals and a possible place in the COSAFA CAF Women's Champions League qualifiers. The four regional league champions will clash in Lobatse over the weekend to decide the South Block. Collabo Girls are riding on momentum after a pulling shocker in the Jwaneng Mine Southern Region Women's League. The team fended off former Mares' coach, Gaolethoo 'Ronaldo' Nkutlwisang-led Jwaneng Galaxy. Collabo Girls are unbeaten in the Southern Region League as they scored 101 goals and conceded just five in 18 games. This is the highest-scoring team of the final four in the South Block playoffs with an average of over five goals per game as they reclaimed their title.

The team concluded its regional competition last weekend and would be carrying the momentum into this weekend's round of games. Forward, Chedza Katsibe is the top scorer among the four teams with 34 goals in 16 games and would be key in Michael Motseothata's team ambitions. The Kanye-based side know GU is a much bigger threat to their aspirations. The Reds Ladies have the arsenal and recently managed a coup with the acquisition of championship-winning coach, William 'Raizor' Monene from Double Action. The team emerged victors in arguably the most difficult regional league in the women's game. GU pulled a shocker as they finished above perennial champions, Double Action in the Gaborone City Region Women's League. The team is unbeaten in the just-ended campaign, scoring 63 goals and conceding the least. Gaonyadiwe 'Neymar' Ontlametse will be key for GU Ladies after notching 12 goals in her debut season with the team. BDF XI finished unbeaten with 38 points in the Kweneng Region League. The Camo Girls replace former champions, Mexican Girls who endured a torrid campaign to finish third in the Kweneng League.

This decision follows the raiding of the office of the former Director General of the DCEC, Tymon Katlholo early 2022 and his staff officer by the DIS operatives who reportedly took files that they had targeted.After all back and forth arguments, the CoA has set the record straight giving an invaluable lesson to the DIS that it was no super security organ and it does not have any powers to cogently supervise other security organs including the...
