Women national league round 1 ends, as Interior maintains dominance

May 11, 2010, 11:58 AM

Interior has over the years dominated and continued to dominate the Women National Division One League Championship. But the security girls are once again not resting on their laurels in a bid to secure another league title with the first round ending over the weekend.

The side led a wonderful first round performance after they occupied the top spot with 12 points with a game left to be played against Red Scorpions.

They started the campaign with four consecutive wins, including their 8-nil thumping over Kinteh's United, who are still rooted at the bottom of the table with zero points.

Abuko United have had an impressive start to the campaign, settling at the second position, four points behind the leaders, while the biggest surprise in the league so far the Armed Forces occupied the third spot with 8 points, following their promotion to the First Division last season.

Company Ten sits at 4th place with 6 points, while Red Scorpions who could only managed 5 points secured the 5th place, including a vital 3 points awarded to them without even kicking a ball as their opponent Kinteh's United failed to turn up for Friday's encounter, due to controversy surrounding the team's future in the First Division, coupled with some inconsistency and the lack of commitment of the players.

Interior could move seven points clear at the top of the league table if they snatch victory over Red Scorpions and pray that their closest rivals drop points, as they looked set to rub shoulders with Red Scorpions in the Week Five fixtures, which has failed to proceed, due to the May Day Sports celebration.
