Birkirkara and Hibernians registered identical 2-0 wins on Tuesday to continue the battle for the BOV Women’s First Division title. With one game to go, the two teams share the top spot with 45 points. The Stripes defeated Gozo while the Paolites beat Mgarr United.
Next week, Birkirkara take on Mgarr United while Hibernians face Pembroke Athleta.
Meanwhile in a clash between the bottom two teams, Pembroke Athleta defeated Raiders (Luxol) 2-1.
In the BOV Women’s Second Division, Fgura United secured promotion thanks to a 9-0 win over Lija / Iklin. This win puts Fgura on top with 35 points, one ahead of Tarxien Rainbows and two ahead of Hamrun Spartans.
The last game between Tarxien and Hamrun will decide which will be the second team to secure promotion apart from determining which way will the title go. In case of a win for either side, the winner would be declared champion. On the other hand, in case of a draw, Tarxien would be promoted with a decider being necessary to determine the champion as Tarxien and Fgura would both end their commitments on 35 points.
