Mġarr United and Swieqi United cancelled each other out in their direct clash on Match day five of the BOV Women’s League.
With leaders Birkirkara absent from this week’s slate of fixtures due to their UEFA Women’s Champions League commitments, Mġarr and Swieqi had the opportunity to move top and open a three-point lead.
At the end, the Greens and the Oranges had to satisfy themselves with a point each that propels them both at the top, with 10 points each after five games. Birkirkara drop into second place, with nine points but with two games in hand.
Elsewhere, Raiders Għargħur secured their first win of the season after defeating Mosta 4-0.
After four games, Raiders have now chalked up their maiden points of the campaign, joining Wednesday’s opponents on three points after four games.
Leanne Micallef grabbed a brace with Maya Lucia scoring one herself. A Mosta goal wrapped up Raiders’ victory.
Swieqi United (5 games) 10, Mġarr United (5) 10, Birkirkara (3) 9; Kirkop United (3) 6; Mosta (4) 3, Raiders Għargħur (4) 3; Mtarfa (4) 0.
