Faced by a larger field than ever before, the players from Mahikeng knew they had thweir work cut out for them when in the first round only two of their number (Mike Mahole and Refiloe Masitenyane) won their games with Oratile Tiro and Karabo Sindane drawining against their opponents.
Arnold Maifala (from St Conrads) immediately stamped his authority on the championship from the first round.
In the second round Refiloe continued his winning ways with Oratile putting in a fine effort to win his second game. However, Arnold continued his winning his ways, taking the lead in the championships.
In the third round, Arnold put pay to Refiloe’s ambitions, as one by one the players from Crown the King saw just how strong their opposition was. However, Oratile soldiered on and despatched his third round opponent with 4 goals to nil.
Going into the fourth, and final, round it thus came down to Arnold vs Oratile to see who would take the crown and be named the MWEB 2015 North West Champion.
