Women’s Football: Red Scorpions scoop Div One title

BY: GFF Media

Red Scorpions have won the national Women’s First Division league after defeating nearest challengers to the title to establish an unassailable nine point lead with only two matches to spare.

In a top of the table clash at the National Technical Training Centre at Old Yundum, the defending champions Interior FC had the chance to cut Red Scorpions’ lead at the top to just three points heading into the final two matches but their 2-0 defeat at the hands of their traditional rivals instead means they have surrendered their crown to the Jeshwang-based side who would no longer be caught on the standing.

They have 33 points from their 13 matches played, meaning all season they’ve dropped just six points while Interior is second on 24 points.

Red Scorpions would be crowned champions when they wrap up their campaign against The Gambia Armed Forces in 10 days.

Elsewhere in the second-tier, the race for the right to be claimed Gambia’s women second division champions would likely go down the wire after the two main title challengers both secured impressive wins over the weekend.

Brikama United and Kinteh’s Football Club are separated by just a mere solitary point as the league enters its final stretch.
