Despite firing blanks, Young Women's goalless draw against Police Sports Association was sufficient to take them top of the table, albeit because of Middle Rangers FC's absence on match day 11. Arion Football Academy capitalized on the stalemate at Meridian Junior College to pile the pressure on the ladies of Police with a 2-1 victory over Jollilads Arsenal FC.
Meanwhile, Warriors FC recorded a forceful 7-0 win against Petra FC to close the gap between themselves and fifth-placed Jollilads to a single point. A 2-0 victory over Nanyang Polytechnic was enough for Winchester FC to move out of the bottom two, leapfrogging Petra into seventh spot.
The battle for helm of the Women's Premier League resumes on match day 12, when Young Women host Middle Rangers, while Police seek their first triumph in three games to stay in contention for the title when they play Warriors at St Wilfrid.
With just one win to their name so far, Petra will be eager to secure three points against Winchester when the two teams meet at Springfield Secondary School, as Arion's quest to break into the top three continues with their fixture against Nanyang Polytechnic.
