A change of name has not changed the philosophy of the Ongos Ladies who thrashed V Power Angels 7-0 on Saturday to complete a record fifth FNB Women’s Super League title success without losing a match.

In fact, the invincible Ongos, formerly Tura Magic, dropped points only once in 22 matches as they continued their dominance of domestic football by winning a fifth consecutive league crown.

Their nearest challengers were Beauties, with Girls and Goals ending third – one position down from the season before.

Okahandja and Nust Babes, who managed only five wins between them all campaign, were relegated in that order.

Ongos defender Lydiana Nanamus says winning another title feels just as exciting as the first one.

“Being crowned the Women’s Super League champions is a great honour for us because we’ve been working hard in order to give the results, not only for ourselves but also to make sure that we entertain the Namibian football lovers,” says Nanamus.

“It is a true reflection of how hard we’ve been working and we would like to thank our technical team, Ongo’s Valley, Namibia Football Association and FNB for everything that they’ve done for us, and for presenting us with such a platform where we are able to inspire the next generation of women’s football players.”

Ongos showed no signs of letting up on their high standards despite having sealed honours weeks ago, putting seven without reply past a hapless Angels to send a message ahead of the PstBet NFA Cup final.

Standing in their way of a double sweep are Khomas Nampol, the last side to deny them a trophy six years ago when they claimed the Women’s Super Cup at Gobabis.

“For the NFA Cup, we are more excited than anything in order to play the cup finals. Because we see this as an opportunity to once again showcase ourselves and inspire the next generation of women’s football players,” says Nanamus of the impeding cup final.“We remain grateful to the NFA and PstBet for the opportunity and we can’t wait to go out there and showcase ourselves.”

The club rewarded its stars with a swanky awards reception in Windhoek on Saturday.

Utility player Ivone Kooper won the player of the season prize, with Lovisa Mulunga taking home the players’ player of the season.

The lethal Anna Shikusho got the goal queen gong for her WSL-leading 32 goals, while the special moment of the season belonged to Thomalina Adams and Cadisha Kazimbu received the most disciplined player prize.
