Jordan Cup finalists still undecided

AMMAN — The Jordan Cup finalists are still undecided and upcoming semifinal Leg 2 matches are decided after Leg 1 matches ended goalless. Ramtha were held by That Ras and will play Leg 2 in Karak on Monday.

On the other hand, Jordan Professional League champs Wihdat will play Faisali in Zarqa on Tuesday.  In the quarter-final Leg 1, Ahli held Ramtha 1-1, That Ras beat Jazira 1-0, Wihdat beat Sarih 1-0 and Faisali beat Manshieh 2-1. In Leg 2, Faisali held Manshieh 1-1, Wihdat held Sarih 0-0, That Ras beat Jazira 4-3 on penalties and Ramtha beat Ahli 2-1.

Baqaa, Shabab Urdun and Hussein were eliminated earlier in the competition in which only League teams played this year.  So far in the 2014/15 football season, Wihdat won two titles after they beat Baqaa to snatch the 32nd Super Cup and last week won the 63rd Jordan Professional Football League, taking home their 14th league title.

However, for the first time in years, the runner-up and third places went to Jazira and Ramtha. Ramtha and Manshieh dropped to Division 1 after former champs Shabab Urdun and Faisali were among teams which could have easily followed suit.

It was only in the final week that Baqaa also held on to their position. Last season, Wihdat won the Jordan Professional League, and beat Baqaa to win the Jordan Cup. Shabab Urdun beat That Ras to win the 31st Super Cup. The Jordan Football Association Shield was not held.
