On Sunday and Tuesday, we’ll see plenty of Women’s Premier League catch-up games take place. Seaforth and Beacon Hill are engaged in a fierce battle for the title, while third placed Manly Vale will be hoping that their next two games can move them up the ladder.
Seaforth have had a brilliant week: they won the State Cup on Saturday and then regained WPL top spot on Tuesday with a 3-0 triumph over Curl Curl. The league leaders host Manly Vale at Seaforth Oval, with Vale looking for a return to winning ways after defeat in Round 9 ended their four game WPL winning streak.
Beacon Hill were narrowly defeated by Seaforth in Saturday’s State Cup Final, losing 1-0 in a tight game. They’ll want to make amends for that game and their midweek loss to Wakehurst when they take on Curl Curl, who themselves need three points as they look to close the gap to fourth placed Wakehurst, so there will be plenty on the line at Beacon Hill Reserve.
At Kitchener Park, Pittwater RSL host Manly Allambie. There was a 2-2 draw when these two teams met in Round 4 and we can expect another close contest on Sunday afternoon – victory for Manly Allambie will boost their chances of avoiding the wooden spoon.
Then on Tuesday night, Brookvale join in on the fun as they are set to play Manly Vale at Grahams Reserve. Brookvale are looking to move away from the bottom of the table, and this fixture could be a tricky test for Manly Vale as it comes only two days after they play Seaforth.
