IN THE mighty Coffs Deep Sea Fishing Club Women’s Premier League jungle the Lionesses are not sleeping.
Locked in a three way battle for only two semi-final positions, Coffs United’s victory over the second placed Woolgoolga was a massive boost to the Lionesses’ bid to stay ahead of Maclean and Urunga in that race.
Woolgoolga has shown so far this season it should be considered the number one challenger to top of the table Boambee but now the Lionesses are throwing their hat into the ring for the title.
Saturday was the third time this season the two teams have met and now the scoreline reads one win each and a draw.
Maclean wasn’t overly convincing in its win on home soil against the Northern Storm scoring just the one goal.
At the end of the year though all that will matter is the three points, not the method of how they were gained.
Boambee’s win over Urunga plus the fact Woolgoolga lost means the Eagles are now 11 points clear on top and look like being sure things to win the minor premiership.
The Eagles managed to find the back of the net three times against a Urunga outfit that shows it can produce very good football for periods of each match but is struggling at times to put together a full 90 minutes.
