Weymouth Wales celebrating their win this past weekend.
Weymouth Wales and the Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme have both managed to keep a stranglehold on their respective zones as the 2018 Barbados Football Association Premier League continues in earnest. With 10 games played across the board the defending champions and the many-time winners are both head and shoulders above their respective packs.
In Zone 1, Wales have 28 points from nine wins and a draw. Having not lost any of their games, especially after the out-of-zone fixtures, have kept them in good standing to possibly take home the title again this year.
Clayton's Kola Tonic Notre Dame are second in the group after winning six of their 10 games and losing the other four. A total of 18 point see them just above Empire who have 16 points in third place off five wins and a draw.
Empire are not safe on their perch as Paradise FC and Brittons Hill United both still stand a chance to move up to third. Paradise also have 16 points from the same statistics, however, the disparity comes from goal-difference as Empire have 6 from 19 goals for and 13 against. On the other hand, Paradise have 5 from 18 versus 13 conceded. Brittons Hill had a decent start in the League but are on 15 points from an even split of five wins and five losses.
Silver Sands are in the relegation zone after fighting their way back to the top tier last season. They have just two wins and two draws to see them to eight points. The latest of their six losses came from Weymouth Wales this past Sunday when the leaders walked off with a 6-1 win.
Zone 2 sees the soldiers of the Sports Programme leading the charge with nine wins from 10 games. They beat the embattled Rendezvous 5-0 this past weekend to move up to 27 points, well ahead of any other competitors.
The University of the West Indies Blackbirds have had something of a comeback and find themselves in second place on 15 points from four wins and three draws. However, they are followed closely by Crane and Equipment Ellerton (13) as the St. George team are third with four wins and a draw.
Mark's Auto Spares Porey Spring have been moving through the tournament with the bare necessities as their first win continues to elude them. With six draws to their names, six points is all they have to show for their campaign thus far.
Also without wins are Home Improvement Hardware Compton (3) and Rendezvous (-2). Compton have three draws while a deduction of six points have robbed Rendezvous of the points earned from four draws.
The action is set to pick back up this weekend with triple-headers on Saturday and Sunday at the Wildey Turf.
