Several of the relegation threatened teams across all three zones of the Division One League caught no respite this weekend as they largely stayed put in the bottom places at the end of the match day. However, Karela FC and Dreams FC, continued their march towards tier-one soccer with significant victories.
The GN Bank sponsored Division One League will return this weekend with just 10 games to the end of the season with Dark Horses and Mpuasuman (Zone one), King Faisal, Wassaman Utd, Eleven Wise and Fijai Real Utd (Zone two), Okyeman Planners, Zein FC, and Dynamo FC all deeply engrossed in the battle to stave off relegation.
Week 19 of the GN Bank Division One league ended up being more eventful than anticipated. Eleven Wonders pulled off the improbable on the road against Techiman City to get back into the title race, Unity FC got pegged back but they remain in the hunt. However, it was Heart of Lions, who took what looks for now like an irrecoverable step back as they went down heavily on the road against Okwahu Utd to give Dreams FC a solid 4points advantage in Zone three.
The GN Bank Division One League will enter Week 19 this weekend following a short turnaround from this past midweek’s matches with the race to the premiership division picking up some more heat as Zone one leaders - Unity FC – take their game to the road for the second time this week, and zone three summit chasers – Heart of Lions – find themselves in a must-win road match as they look to stay within striking distance of Dreams FC. In zone two, it looks like Karela FC has nothing to worry about this weekend.
