The action in Women’s Premier League Round 8 is headlined by a top two clash at Beacon Hill Reserve. There are four MWFA WPL teams in the Football NSW Women’s State Cup quarter finals, which highlights the strength of this competition.
Beacon Hill are flying high in second place, but they have a tough assignment on Sunday afternoon – their aim is to inflict Seaforth’s first defeat of the league campaign. Confidence will be high in both camps after these two teams enjoyed success in last weekend’s State Cup games.
Pittwater were also victorious in the State Cup, now they will be looking to climb the table and reduce the gap to the top four. They play at Kitchener Park against fourth placed Curl Curl, who incredibly have drawn their last four WPL games.
Wakehurst and Brookvale are just outside the top four spots and will be well rested after having a weekend off. These two sides meet at Lionel Watts Oval: Wakehurst want to jump into the top four, but Brookvale can leapfrog the Tigers if they win.
Third placed Manly Vale will be feeling good after five consecutive victories (three in the State Cup, two in the WPL). They travel to Millers Reserve for a meeting with Manly Allambie, who are looking to end their winless run and move off the bottom of the table.
