The 2013 FAS Women's Premier League season did not get off to the smoothest of starts, as three out of four first round fixtures had to be postponed due to inclement weather.
With their game at Meridian Junior College the only opening game to take place as scheduled, Police Sports Association Women's FC and Middle Rangers FC surged to the top of the league table after playing out a 1-1 draw.
However, a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Young Women on match day 2 meant that Police were not able to hang on to their place at the helm. Instead, it was Winchester FC that took over the lead with their 4-0 drubbing of Nanyang Polytechnic.
Although level on points with Winchester, Arion Football Academy were forced to settle for second spot, after they recorded an impressive 4-1 victory over Jolliads Arsenal FC despite playing with 10 men for a portion of the second period. A piece of individual brilliance from Warriors FC's Miku Sakurada settled the final fixture of the match day 2 as her team came away with a narrow 1-0 win over Petra FC.
Match day 3 sees a congested schedule of two games in the span of five days for Nanyang Polytechnic, Warriors, Petra and Young Women due to rearranged fixtures from the first stage.
As such, Arion and Winchester will look to capitalize on possibly fatigued opponents when they clash with Nanyang Polytechnic and Petra respectively, with hopes of extending their lead at the top of the table over the weekend.
