Dynamos currently sits in the 4th spot in the standings with 7 wins while the Stars reside in the 8th spot in the table.
Renegades FC (7) VS Cavalier FC (0)

Cavalier FC currently sits at the bottom of the table looking up at the other teams. Renegades moved up to the 6th position with the win.
United Women’s Football Club (4) VS Cavalier WFC (0)
Hadassah Knowles, Asia Williams, Jade Thelamour and Samina Moss all chipped in to secure a dominating victory over a competitive Cavalier WFC Squad. In the end, experience and youth took over.
United WFC currently sit atop the table of the women’s soccer league.
Baha Jr WFC (0) VS Dynamos WFC (0)
In the feature match of the day, this match turned out to be a fire cracker of a match with both teams pushing for the win. In the end, despite the number of opportunities created in the game, neither team could score and the teams shared the points in the end.
The Dynamos WFC currently sit in the second position followed by Baha Jr WFC in third.
M1: Cavalier FC (0) VS FC Seventeen (7)
Cavalier FC is a shell of their glory years as this edition of the storied is currently giving up on average, a whopping 7 goals per game.
The squad has needs across their roster and it showed in the first match as Marken Das scored 4 goals to lead the FC Seventeen squad to a 7-0 victory. Das continues to push towards the Golden Boot title with 5 games remaining on the season and he sits in third with 15 goals.
M2: Insurance Management Bears (1) VS University of the Bahamas Mingoes (1)
The high flying Mingoes were grounded by a determined veteran Bears squad. The Bears took the lead on a goal by Djodson Francois in the 25th minute of the match and this created immediate pressure for the Mingoes who could not afford another setback in their push to win the title. The Mingoes added a number of pieces in the winter transfer with hopes that their roster will be strengthened. The Bears on the other hand relied on a smothering defence led by Bahamian international veteran Leslie St. Fleur to hold league-leading goal scorer Ronaldo Green scoreless.
The Bears could not close out the game as young Joshua Johnson scored the tying goal in the 84th minute to share the points in the end. The Bears are sitting firmly in the 7th position while the Mingoes are tied on points for second with the United Football Club. Both squads racked up the yellow cards as the referees had to work hard to keep the match in check.
M3: Baha Jr FC (0) VS Renegades FC (9)
Don’t look now but the Renegades FC is making a push to get into the top four position on the table and leading the way is Jacob Charles who has been on a tear lately. With a smothering defence behind him, Charles was able to drop five goals on a hapless Baha Jr squad.
Baha Jr is currently giving up an average of 5.6 goals per game and sit in the 9th spot, one away from the bottom of the table. With eight goals in the past two games, look out for the name Jacob Charles!
