For Yap who suffered their 21st defeat of the season, they remain rooted at the foot of the table with just 9 points from their first 24 games.

On the same day, second placed Park kept their title hopes alive for at least another week as they took care of hapless Kabowa United 4-0.

Shafick Mulangira *2 and Mark Kisenyi scored Park’s second half goals.

The three points earned see Park maintain second spot with 54 points, six behind leaders Yeak after 24 games.

Park will now have to pray that Yeak loses its last two games while they win by huge margins in theirs’ so as to steal the title from the noses of the Kabowa based side.

For Kabowa United, they are still second from bottom with only 12 points accumulated so far this campaign.

In the game involving defending champions Dream, their three match winning run was put to an end by Bajim (1-2).

Dream who are the inaugural winners of the Futsal Super League and are into the final of the Cup, drop into 5th with their 41 points gathered so far.

For Bajim, they climb into 4th on the standings, one point ahead of Dream.
