1 year ago

The second round of matches in the Malta Guinness Women’s Premier League kicks off this weekend across various League centers. In the southern zone, leaders Hasaacas Ladies will aim to bounce back from their loss to Faith Ladies as they lace up against old foes, Berry Ladies at the Madina Astro turf in one of the fascinating ties in the Women’s Premier League calendar. Second placed Faith Ladies will host Soccer Intellectuals at the Carl Reindolf Park. Here is what to look ahead to on Match Day 10.



Having won their last game against Hasaacas Ladies on Matchday 9, Faith Ladies will capitalize on the win to secure another vital victory as they engage Soccer Intellectuals at the Carl Reindolf Park. Faith Ladies appear the better side on paper taking into consideration their current form. Soccer Intellectuals, have managed two wins, two draws and five losses in their last 9 League matches and sit in 8th place in the Southern Zone table with 8 points – 6 points ahead of the bottom club. Faith Ladies would heavily rely on goalkeeper Mary Neequaye who has been impressive thus far, as well as Maafia Nyame – a back-to-back NASCO Most Valuable Player winner. A win for the host will take them to the summit of the League and boost their title charge while the visitors will be hoping to get a good result to heighten their chances of survival.


Rejuvenated Berry Ladies will welcome to old foes, Hasaacas Ladies to the Madina Park as the second round of the season continues this Saturday. Berry Ladies secured back-to-back wins in their last two matches to move from 8th to 5th while the visitors, come into this fixture fresh from a slender defeat to Faith Ladies last weekend. The spotlight will be on Berry Ladies new signing, Rahama Jafaru who once played for Hasaacas Ladies. She has been a bright spot for her new side scoring one and providing three assists. Six points separate the two sides as Berry Ladies have a deficit of 6 points after nine round of matches. Hasaacas Ladies were the victors when the two-sides met thanks to a 79th minute strike from sensational Doreen Copson.


The two debutants will meet for the second time this season. Essiam Socrates were the better side in the first-round thumping Ridge City 3:0 away and are currently having a good run in their debut season recording stunning victories. Essiam Socrates are 4th in the League log with 16 points whilst Ridge City lie at the bottom of the table with 2 points, having gone nine games without a win.


Police Ladies struggled in the first half of the season displaying an inconsistent and a lackluster performance during the period. They will play host to Thunder Queens at the Achimota School Park on Saturday with the aim of making an impression to get their season back on track. As relegation looms for Police Ladies, they will need to get all maximum points to put themselves in a good place in the League log while Thunder Queens – who are 7th, hope to fight for the points to move up the table.


Army Ladies are in a good run this season having beaten League leaders, Hasaacas Ladies in the first round. They begin the second round at home to strugglers Ladystrikers at the Teshie MATS Park.
