Makeni, SIERRA LEONE – In a highly anticipated match in the 2023/24 Sierra Leone Women’s Premier League (SLWPL), second-placed Malema Queens of Kailahun are set to host defending champions and current league leaders Mogbwemo Queens from Rutile. The top-of-the-table clash is scheduled for this Sunday at 4:15 PM, promising an intense battle between two formidable teams.
Malema Queens, currently in second place, have demonstrated their prowess by securing three wins in four league matches, including impressive victories over last season’s runners-up, Kahunla Rangers, and Albitaya Queens, with scorelines of 5-0 and 6-0.

With nine points and a goal difference of 10, they sit three points behind current leaders Mogbwemo Queens and will be eager to secure a home victory in this crucial encounter.
Holders Mogbwemo Queens have begun their title defence impressively, winning four matches in a row and scoring an impressive 15 goals without conceding any. Standing three points clear with 12 points, they are determined to extend their unbeaten record as they travel to face Kailahun this Sunday. The Rutile-based club has been on a goal-scoring spree in their last three league matches, notably defeating Correctional Center 3-0, Albitaya Queens 6-0, and Patricia Umu Strikers Football Club 7-0. According to their head coach, Adama Paulina Suma, they are focused on crushing any team in their pitiless strive to defend the league title.
