FRONT-RUNNERS St Geor-ges Sports Club are poised to extend their advantage in the Portland Football Association Western Union Major League, when they travel to face bottom-of-the-table Hope Bay United at Canewood, in a 3 p.m. matchup today.
After four matches in which they have won three and drawn once, the former Premier League outfit head the standings on 10 points, well ahead of Hope Bay, who have lost three of four matches so far.
St Georges registered the biggest win over the last week, a 5-1 hammering of Norwich at CASE in the lone game played on Tuesday.
The St Georges-Hope Bay contest is one of two scheduled for today, with Buff Bay United hosting Eagle Strikers in the other at Lynch Park, also at 3 p.m.
Both have played three matches, but Eagle Strikers have won twice while staying unbeaten to claim second position with seven points, while Buff Bay have four points from a win, draw, loss record.
The teams netted contrasting results last Saturday, with Eagle Strikers registering a 2-0 win over Hope Bay United at Canewood; and Buff Bay falling 0-1 to Snowhill at Snowhill.
Another two matches are on the cards when the competition continues tomorrow.
At Jones Park, Manchioneal and Ujama, which are also tied at the bottom on three points, will clash, while fourth-place Boundbrook United, with six points from four matches, will be home against Norwich, which have lost four of five matches. However, they won the other to remain among the bottom four grouping, which have three points.
The matches are slated to kick off at 3 p.m.
