CÉ Colle won with a clear margin. The Antwerp team was close, until it lost to the eventual champions in the 5th round. On the other side of the table, SC Colle Sint Niklaas narrowly avoided delegation to the promotion section after defeating Merksem in the final round with a resounding 5-1. All information I have comes from [1], but most games are missing and one of the results from Kortrijk-Ostend must be wrong. Here are round-by-round results.
