Only the Youth Boys’ and Senior Women played their matches last weekend with wet weather seeing the Youth Girls’ matches cancelled.
The First-Grade women’s side were moments away from recording their first victory in the FNSW Women’s League One competition. The side was unable to hold onto a three-goal lead, conceding three late goals to see the points shared against Camden Tigers.
Despite the disappointing end to the match, there were plenty of positives for the team. Jess Cruickshank continued her fast start to the campaign picking up two more goals for this season. Youngster Piper Cowen also getting her first goal this year.
The women will be eager to make amends this Sunday when they take on Nepean at Jamison Park.
Nepean was one of the many sides in the competition who were unable to play their match last weekend, however, the side did suffer a 4-0 defeat in Round One to St George FC. Flame will fancy their chances this week.
It is now back-to-back defeats for the Under 20s side, going down 1-0 to Camden last Sunday. Bethany Horton had a strong performance in last weekend’s match and will be looking to build on that this Sunday. Nepean lost 2-1 to St George FC in the opening round and their only game so far this season.
Flame have been so close in each of their previous games and one feels the side is not too far away from finding their first victory in the competition.

Youth Girls: Starting from 8:20 am

The Youth Boys are scheduled to travel to Jensen Park this Saturday to face Bankstown United. With Jensen Park being a synthetic pitch, these fixtures are likely to go ahead.
The boys had a strong performance last Sunday at The Furnace picking up three wins and two defeats.
The Under-13s and Under-16s squads still have perfect records after the opening two rounds and will be hoping to extend their winning runs. The 14s registered their first win last week and the 15’s will be looking to make amends after being outplayed last week. The U18s have not quite put it together for 90 minutes yet and they too will be looking to get on the side side of the scores after two narrow losses.
