 THERE are no changes to the competition ladder because only two A-League matches were played on Sunday in the NCD Public Servants competition at PNGIPA Oval.

The two matches saw the Yamaros Football Club Lions fighting to a scoreless draw against City United. 

The draw pushes Yamaros two points closer to competition leader Wantoks, who still lead with 10 points despite not having a game on Saturday.

Simla joins Wantoks on the top of the ladder with a 1-0 victory over Murat, from Mussau Island, in New Ireland.  

Saturday’s cancelled games were Wantok- Murat, PNGIPA-Buria and Tarangau-Musa. The games were postponed because of heavy rain.

The ladder: Wantoks 10, Simla 10, YFC Lions 8, Tarangau 7, PNGIPA 7, City United 6, Musa 4, Murat 3, Morata Roots 2 and Buria 1.

NCD Public Servants Soccer chief Vonnie Kapi Natto said the matches would be rescheduled during the season as wash-out games.

The women’s A-League ladder: Tarangau 12, Wantoks 10, YFC Lions 9, Murat 8, City United 7, Morata Roots 6, Musa 3, Buria 3, PNGIPA 0, Simla 0.
