The 2019-20 Women’s Premier League has served the football caucus with a heavy dose of both excitement and artistry after seven rounds with the women gradually being sifted from the girls.
With the first half of the season coming to an end last Sunday, a total number of 56 games staged in the Northern Zone and a staggering 78 goals netted in the division speaks volumes of the goal scoring prowess of the clubs.
Security service’s team Prisons Ladies lead the pack with five wins and two draws – the only side yet to taste defeat in the Northern Zone and the second side in both zones aside Police Ladies.
Despite not scoring as many as their illustrious opponents – Ampem Darkoa Ladies – they have conceded just five goals in seven outings to underpin their water-tight defence.
Out of a possible 21 points, Prisons Ladies have amassed a mass of 17 points with a winning rate of 71.43% – four shy of scoring full marks.
Despite their snail-start to the season, Ampem Darkoa Ladies have gradually found themselves back in contention in ruthless and merciless fashion. It therefore comes as little surprise that Ampem Darkoa are the highest scoring team in the Northern Zone and just two shy of Hasaacas Ladies in the Southern zone (24 goals).
Ampem Darkoa have been responsible for 28.21% of the total number of goals scored in the Northern Zone.
Pearlpia Ladies, Northern Ladies and Kumasi Sports Academy occupy the third, fourth and fifth positions.
Shockingly, Fabulous Ladies and regional rivals Ashtown Ladies are reeling in the Zone, an initial cathedral and powerhouse in relation to women’s football in the country have struggled to relive their good old days.
Both of them are separated by goal difference with the two traditional teams winning just a single game, losing on three occasions, winning once and drawing the rest with just six points accrued.
The only team to post worst records than the two aforementioned clubs is Supreme Ladies who are currently rooted to the bottom of the eight-team zone.
Supreme Ladies have a total tally of just a point after seven games, drawing once and losing on six occasions without tasting a win after the first round.
They have shipped in a whooping 23 goals and scoring a disappointing four goals in as many games played averaging 0.57 goals per game and 0.05 points per game to underscore their abysmal run.
