After a crazy few weeks of unpredictable results, the MWFA Premier League Women’s title is still up for grabs heading into the final round of the regular season.
Mosman remain remarkably undefeated for the season, however passed up a chance at securing top spot when they drew with bottom-placed Brookvale last weekend.
Fortunately for James Spyrakis’ side, their challenger Manly Vale also slipped up in a 2-1 defeat to Seaforth which saw the gap at the top of the table extend to three points.
The result also brought Seaforth into calculations just two points off second, meaning another Vale slip-up could see them finish outside of the top two that they have occupied for so long.
The side from David Thomas will be desperate to avoid that fate when they travel to face Brookvale at Grahams on Sunday.
Especially considering last week’s result, Vale captain Ali Warman is wary of the threat Michael Cimino’s young side pose.
“You can never discount Brookvale they’ve always been tough competitors,” she said.
“So, we’re not going to pretend they’re going to be a rollover. Like everyone I think they’ve lost a few players and had some injuries this year but they’re coming good at the right time.
“We’re just going to play the way we normally play and play our best and hopefully we’ll come up with a win against them.
“These last few weeks we’ve had a few ups and downs but we’re still pretty positive and we’re in a very good position heading towards the end of the season.”
Whatever unfolds, the Vale skipper is pleased with how her side have dealt with a challenging year.
“We’re pretty proud of all of the whole squad and how we’ve gone this year,” Warman said.
“Hopefully that some results might go on our way and we might be top in the end but all we can do is just focus on our game this weekend and get the three points.”
