BOV Women's 2nd Div

All attention of the penultimate matchday of the BOV Women's 1st Division will be drawn on the relegation battle where Raiders (Luxol) and Kirkop United are three points distant within each other with two fixtures left.


Raiders have a golden opportunity of making a huge stride towards salvation as they will meet minnows Pembroke Athleta. On the other hand, Kirkop United have a tougher task as they lock horns with second place Birkirkara, with the latter still defending their second place as they are only five points ahead of Mgarr United.


If Raiders win and Kirkop United fail to win, Raiders will be confirmed as a 1st Division team for next season. In the remaining fixture, the Greens will be meeting newly-crowned champions Hibernians in a match where the Greens are eyeing the second place while Hibernians have nothing at stake, having already clinched the title.
