With two match weeks to be played, Blue Star needs just three points out of a possible six to secure the inaugural Super League championship title.
Blue Star has been in a rich vein of form in the last six matches with one draw and five wins. The draw was a goalless encounter against Renown. The lads from Kalutara sit atop the points table equal on points with Colombo and Sea Hawks, whom they have beaten 1-0 and 3-0 respectively.
- Four goals, two reds; Defenders fightback to draw Sea Hawks
- Defenders & New Youngs secure first win
- Colombo fight back to draw; Sailors stay unbeaten
- Seychelles’ epic comeback stuns Sri Lanka
- Waseem’s last-minute penalty sends Sri Lanka to the final
However, with both their title rivals standing to lose vital three points for breach of competition rules and regulations, Blue Star will have even more breathing space heading into the final two matches. Sea Hawks’ win against Up Country Lions is under inquiry after it was noted that Sea Hawks did not have a marquee player for a certain part of the match while Colombo is under investigation for fielding an ineligible player in their win against New Youngs.
After finding themselves in the bottom four for the initial part of the league, with two points from four games, Renown find themselves in 4th place courtesy of a three-match winning streak.
