wins in "Zeid" Tournament
The first leg's 45 matches witnessed hot competitions that ended with
the Yarmouk club winning first place with 25 points, followed by Mina'
with 23 points, Ahli Sanaa with 23 points and Hilal with 23 points also.
Apparently, the championship will not get out of the hands of those four
teams while Wehda and Ahli Taiz will struggle to remain in the excellent
division. The results have shown the deteriorating skills of the other
teams of Tilal, Shaab Ibb and Shamsan.
The first leg matches have displayed a clear improvement in the performance
of Hilal, Ahli Sanaa and Yarmouk while Mina', champion of last year's tournament,
was not in its usual mood and lost two matches against Hilal and Yarmouk.
Yarmouk's performance was also not convincing in its latest matches which
paves the way for Ahli Sanaa and Hilal to occupy the top spots due to their
stable performance unless Mina' and Yarmouk had benefitted from the temporary
stoppage in improving their skills.
