Maloro eyes golden boot
WOMEN’S Super League top goal scorer Litseoane Maloro hopes to maintain her fine run to walk away with the golden boot when the season ends.
The towering striker is leading the pack with 13 goals with a stiff competition from LDF ladies forward Kholu Lebakeng who is just a goal adrift after six matches for their respective clubs.
Maloro, who also plays for the women senior national team, Mehalalitoe, said she has missed on the award in the previous years but she has improved her performance this season and hopes it will pay off this time around.
“I have lost out in the race in previous seasons and this time I am gunning for it with everything that I have,” said Maloro.
“We are just one match away from the first-round so I just have to ensure that I maintain my good performance and close on a high and improve my chances of clinching the golden boot this season.”
Maloro, nicknamed Kamoli (after former LDF commander Lieutenant General Tlali Kamoli) as she is known for terrorising defenders, said the departure of Senate Letsie who is now based in the United States has opened her eyes and she noticed that it is time that she shoulders the responsibility in her team.
“In previous seasons we were depending mostly on Senate to score for us and I think ever since she left I realised that it was time that I get out of my comfort zone and shoulder the responsibility of ensure the team wins matches and trophies,” she said.
Kick4Life sit second on the eight team Women’s Super League table with 15 points having won five and lost once in the six matches.
Maloro said she is hopeful that they can still win the league provided they beat pace setters, LDF Ladies, who are also the defending champions.
“We still stand a chance to win this league. We just need to ensure that we win our matches. LDF are the log leaders at the moment as they beat us 1-0 in the first match so we just need to beat them in the second round because both teams have equal chances,” she said.
“We started on a back foot as we also struggled also to score although we were still winning our matches but we have improved and are scoring lots of goals just like in our last match where we beat Berea Ladies 11-0,” Maloro said.
