After recording four wins from four matches, Birdies find themselves sitting at the top spot on the progressive tally with 12 points ahead of the other four teams namely Tower Insurance, 23 Triples, Sky Bullets and Kingz Harbour who are trailing with seven points each, only for mathematical calculations in goal differences which have them separated according to placing from the second to the fifth positions, respectively, on the table.
