After a break in the competition due to Football NSW State Cup games, we’re getting ready for MWFA Women’s Premier League Round 6. Some teams used last weekend to rest and others recorded important Cup wins, who will come out on top this Sunday?
There’s a top four clash in Allambie Heights as third placed Manly Vale host fourth placed Wakehurst. Both teams know they could move as high as second with victory, and they both won in Round 1 of the State Cup, so there will be plenty of confident players at David Thomas Reserve.
At Seaforth Oval, we’ll see two teams coming off Cup victories. League front runners Seaforth won big in Round 1 of the Sapphire Cup, while Pittwater RSL knocked Sydney University out of the State Cup – all things point to an intriguing game.
The competition’s joint-highest scorers are set to do battle at Beacon Hill Reserve, so we could see plenty of goals! Beacon Hill (currently in second) and Manly Allambie have scored nine goals each in the opening four rounds, and only three points separate these two sides so there will be plenty on the line.
Finally, Curl Curl meet Brookvale at Abbott Road. These teams are looking to rebound from State Cup defeats on the weekend, and they both know that victory will see them climb the ladder.
There will also be two MWFA teams participating in Round 3 of the Sapphire Cup. Brookvale host Woonona Sharks from Football South Coast at Cromer Park, and Seaforth travel west for a clash with FNSW League One Women’s side Mt Druitt Town Rangers at Popondetta Park. Both games kick off at 7:30pm on Wednesday 17 May.
