BOV Women's 1st Div


Wednesday night sees reigning champions Hibernians encounter rivals and title challengers Birkirkara with a view to extend their lead over the Stripes to eleven points, making a bold title statement. Hibernians have been terrific this season winning all their 11 fixtures prior their match against Birkirkara.


They boast the league’s best defensive line with only six goals conceded and the league’s best attacking chemistry with almost 50 goals scored. On the other hand, this match can decide Birkirkara’s title fate, therefore the win is imperative for them since it would take them only two points behind the Paolites. Moreover, besides reigniting the title race, having the better of their rivals would also mean inflicting the first loss for Hibernians. An unmissable match which has always provided drama and emotions and tonight’s encounter won’t be an exception. 


Kim Parnis (Birkirkara FC): ‘’It is a match like the rest of the fixtures. We have prepared well for this encounter as we do for every other match in this league. We are expecting a balanced match and of high quality, as we usually produce when we cross swords with each other. May the best team win the match.’’


Ruth Steer Chetham (Hibernians FC): ‘’Playing against Birkirkara is the most awaited game for us. Although we are leading the league, we cannot take this game lightly, and just like any game of the league we have one target – the 3 points. We give importance always to every game and strive to play the best football so we can keep on improving our performance match after match.’’
