Bobcats bob up over Boambee as Lionesses end Eagles hoodoo

NO SURPRISE that Urunga and Coffs United remain unbeaten in North Coast Football but Maclean is also back in the title chase with a stunning 3-0 win over Boambee.

The Bobcats were logical favourites playing at Barry Watts Oval but the Bombers were the best tip for a long weekend upset.

However, the margin shows the home team's dominance and the win allows Maclean to leapfrog Northern Storm and Boambee into outright fourth spot on the premiership ladder.

While there was only one goal in it, Sawtell continues flying under the radar to remain in third position, and remain within striking distance of the Raiders and Lions.

The unbeaten pair are set for their long-awaited showdown on Tuesday night.

The game will be played at The Cabbage Patch in Urunga starting at 8pm.

If there was one stunning upset from the weekend it had to be Coffs United's 3-1 win over Boambee Eagles in women's premier league.

The Lionesses have found Boambee to be their bogey of late and hadn't beaten the premiers outright since a 4-1 win at McLean Street in May, 2013.
