BOV Women's 1st and 2nd Division 


Following the Aphrodite Cup's commitments, the BOV Women's 1st Division will resume with a full programme on Tuesday, which will see leaders Hibernians crossing swords with Mgarr United where they will aim to register their 14th consecutive victory of the season while preserving their lead atop BOV Women's 1st Division. Meanwhile their rivals Birkirkara will encounter Kirkop United, striving to keep their title hopes alive while also keeping their distance within Mgarr United at six points. Moreover, relegation battlers Raiders (Luxol) will face Pembroke Athleta where while Raiders must take all three points if they want to avoid the play-off spot, Pembroke Athleta are still seeking their first victory of the campaign. 


BOV Women's 1st Division Standings: 

  1. Hibernians FC - 13 matches; 39 points

Also on Tuesday, there will be a full schedule from the 2nd Division where leaders Gozo will be facing Sliema Wanderers, with Gozo edging closer towards promotion while the Wanderers are practically out of the contest for a play-off spot.w Meanhile play-off challengers Swieqi United and Hamrun Spartans will be facing Kirkop United B and Tarxien Rainbows respectively with both teams striving to book a play-off spot. The Oranges are five points ahead of the Spartans but with an upcoming direct encounter and with some tough contests for either side, the race for the second place could be nerve-wrecking more than predicted.
