Top four teams consolidate positions

ALL of the top four teams in the women's 1st Division competition scored good wins at the weekend to consolidate their positions on the table.

Sawtell has a habit over the years of testing Urunga and it managed to do so again on the weekend.

The Raiders did prevail though with a 1-0 win. The game may never feature in a highlights package but the Raiders claimed three important points nonetheless.

As expected Coffs United recorded a comfortable win against Northern Storm while Boambee's good recent form continued with a 2-0 win at Maclean.

Most of the attention on the weekend though was at Woolgoolga where the competition leaders were involved in a local derby against Corindi-Red Rock.

The Breakers led 2-1 at the break and was playing well enough to cause an upset.

Woolgoolga moved debutante Jessie Gentle forward in the

second half and the switch paid dividends when Gentle was able to equalise.

With only 10 minutes remaining Ashley Deane found the back of the net for the Wildcats with an unstoppable ball fired low and hard into the right-hand corner.

It was another nail-biter between two teams who play out hardfought battles no matter what the relative table positions of the two combatants are.
