We’re entering the second half of the season! Saturday’s action is headlined by a top two clash at Narrabeen High, while the other games in Men’s Premier League Round 12 also carry plenty of intrigue.
Second placed Narrabeen host league leaders CC Strikers and victory for Narrabeen will put them level on points with Strikers at the top of the table. For Narrabeen, this is a perfect opportunity to bounce back from defeat in Tuesday’s Challenge Cup Final, but CC Strikers have only lost one Premier League game in 2023.
Pittwater RSL are flying high after winning 2-0 in midweek and lifting the Challenge Cup trophy. Next up for Pittwater is an away game against Brookvale at Grahams Reserve – Pittwater will be looking to keep the top two in their sights with a win, while sixth placed Brookvale need three points to keep pace in the battle for finals spots.
Wakehurst and Beacon Hill are also in the mix for the top four. Beacon Hill are in fifth, on the same number of points as fourth placed Mosman, while Wakehurst are four points behind them and in seventh place, so their game at Lionel Watts Reserve is sure to be keenly fought.
Harbord travel to David Thomas Reserve in search of a win that would move them closer to the mid-table positions. However, Manly Vale will be keen to defend their home turf and are looking for a third win in four rounds. Finally, St Augustine’s are coming off a thrilling 4-4 draw against Beacon Hill and their next assignment is a home game against BTH Raiders at Passmore Reserve.
