Gantoise nine clear in Belgium

Gantoise are well set to continue their winning streak on the Belgian women’s scene as they sit nine points clear going into the winter stop after 13 rounds of matches.

They signed off for 2023 with an 11-1 win over Leuven for their 12th win out of 13 games, putting them clear of perennial rivals Braxgata.

Ambre Ballenghien got four of them to move clear at the top of the goalscoring charts with 14 to her name thus far this season following her comeback from injury.

With 51 goals in total, 23 more than anyone else, Gantoise dominate that table too with Astrid Bonami and Emilie Sinia on seven goals to be equal fifth while Noa Schreurs has scored six. Their one setback came in a 1-0 defeat to Brax in early-October.
