The Table is Tight in the Championship



It went down to the final moments in the regular season of the Championship Division to solidify the seedings going into playoffs. Sterling Mutual Football leapfrogged Rutland Young Boys in a 6-5 win against F.C. Play it Again on matchday 15 to claim the top seed in the division with a record of 11-4. Sterling Mutual were the Championship winners last season and will look to be the first repeat champions in the division. Sterling and RYB will get a bye to the semi-finals.


Four clubs finished with 10-5 records including the Young Boys but all with different point totals due to shootout results. Rollercoaster club DMA United took third seed and have caught heat heading into this Thursday's quarterfinals against aforementioned F.C. Play it Again who have a talisman goal scorer up top in Mateo Biggattini. That match will take place this Thursday at 8:00pm in the Dome. The other two 10-5 records OFC 2007b and Volta, separated by 1 point, will take place at 9:05pm on Thursday night. Both OFC and F.C. Play it Again have had strong finishes to the season since being on the outside looking in on the playoff table at the Christmas break. These league quarterfinals will be robust with high-paced tense action, anyone can win to the semis.


Honourable mention in the Championship Division goes to Canco's APNA who narrowly missed playoffs in their first season in OPL history, they're sure to be back and better off next year with a season under their belt, as well as new club African Giants who showed signs of brilliance throughout the campaign. Grenfell United will be relegated to cancelled out of the division, making room for another team next year.
