Mioks holding top spot

The Enga Provincial Government-sponsored Enga Mioks are the team to beat with an unbeaten run so far this season.

The Timothy Lepa coached side have beaten the Bintangor Goroka Lahanis, Agmark Rabaul Gurias, Giru Waghi Tumbe, PRK Gulf Isou and made it five from five with a win over the PRK Mendi Muruks yesterday.

Running second are last year’s runner-up, the Gurias, whose first loss this season was to the Mioks in round two.

Waghi Tumbe and the boys from Hela have also shown they are teams to be reckoned with, picking up impressive wins while defending premiers, the Tigers, have yet to find their form, having recorded only one win putting them in eighth spot on the ladder.

Newcomers Isou and the Warriors make up the rear sitting in the 9th and 10th place respectively.

The current standings (after round five):

1. Enga Mioks (10)

2. Rabaul Gurias (8)

3. Waghi Tumbe (6)

4. Hela Wigmen (6)

5. Goroka Lahanis (5)
