Moletlane Texas and Seleteng Giant Killers reinforced their title ambitions in the LimDev Super League, but it appears that nothing will prevent leaders Mahwelereng Spikes from defending their title this season.

Texas managed to close the gap between them and Spikes to nine points after they won their two matches on Sunday.

Spikes only played one match in which they walloped hosts University of Limpopo 8-1.

University were also embarrassed at home by Texas who tore them apart with an impressive 25-0 win in a one-sided tie.

The defeats sent the disappointing institution's side deeper into the quagmire and now they need to win all their remaining eight matches to survive the axe at the end of the season.

Texas also beat the obdurate Seshego Raiders 3-2 in their other match of the day.

Spikes have amassed 45 points from 14 matches and Texas have 36 from 13 outings.

Killers have collected 33 points from 12 matches and for them and Texas to win the league they will be hoping that Spikes lose most of their remaining matches, which is highly unlikely.

Raiders, who are third from bottom, had earlier claimed the scalp of Red Scorpions, beating them 4-2.

Killers, on the other hand, were in lethal form as they demolished Sebayeng Sharks 17-0 and Red Scorpions 10-0 to remain third on the table.

Sharks, who are also in danger of being axed this season, raised some hopes of survival when they pipped fellow relegation candidates Mashite Eagles 2-1 in a closely fought clash.

Eagles, who are bottom on the log, started their campaign on Sunday positively, defeating Mamaolo Rebels 12-7 in a GaMphahlele derby.
