South Coast Flame vs Prospect United

Saturday 2nd July

Ian McLennan Park

U/20: 1:15pm

First Grade: 3pm

South Coast Flame will take on Prospect United in the first Saturday match of round 17 at Ian McLennan Park.

South Coast will be looking to get back into football this weekend, with their last match coming on the 18th of June against Hawkesbury City in a 2-1 defeat.

The home side for this game has won two of their last five matches in League Three Men, with their only two losses in the previous quintet of games coming against Western Rage and Hawkesbury.

Flame will be looking to move into the end of the season strongly as they look to hamper Prospect United’s finals hopes with a win in Wollongong on Saturday afternoon.

Prospect is currently sixth on the ladder, five points off the top four with three games in hand on fourth-placed Hurstville FC.

In the last six rounds, they’ll have to face all of the incumbent top four, including the top three in their last three scheduled matches, making a win against South Coast vital as they look to secure a finals position.

With several games in hand, our U/20’s are firmly entrenched in the top five and will be pushing for the top two spots on the ladder. They will be looking for a big win this weekend against last placed Prospect.



South Coast Flame vs Hills United

Saturday 2nd July

Ian McLennan Park

U/20: 5:15pm

First Grade: 7:15pm

Kicking the round off on Saturday night is a battle between leaders Hills United FC and South Coast Flame FC at Sir Ian McLennan Park.

Both sides come into the game off positive results last weekend. Hills United FC won 1-0 against local rivals Blacktown City FC while South Coast Flame FC won an eight goal thriller against South East Phoenix FC 5-3.

The Flame head into the game burning bright after their local derby win and it was a showcase for striker Jessica Cruickshank. She scored a hat-trick and will be key if the Flame are able to burn through the league’s best defence.

Hills United FC got back some of their mojo in the last fortnight with back-to-back wins after their lean run which cut their lead down to goal difference. Their defence will be tough to break down and Sarah Easthope is a warrior between the sticks which makes it a daunting task.

The U/20’s will look to continue their point scoring form this week as they take on eighth placed Hills. The U/20’s are coming off an 8-0 win against Nepean and a 1-1 draw last week against South East Phoenix.



South Coast Flame vs Northbridge Bulls

Saturday 2nd July

Ian McLennan Park

U/13: 8:30am (Field 2)

U/14: 10:05am (Field 2)

U/15: 8am (Field 1)

U/16: 9:35am (Field 1)

U/18: 11:20am (Field 1)

Sitting firmly entrenched in the top four with a game in hand, the U/13’s can ensure that the gap between the top four and the rest widens this weekend with a win over 10th placed Northbridge. Our boys have won four of their last five games and are in a purple patch of form.

The U/14’s face a tough test this week against third placed Northbridge, though are coming in with decent form having not lost in their last five games.

The U/15’s have a golden opportunity to go as high as second spot with a win this weekend, even with a game in hand on most. They are unbeaten in their last four as they face 11th placed Northbridge.

The U/16’s will look to close the gap to eighth placed Northbridge, as they face the side in the next spot above them on the ladder. A win here as well as wins in their catch up games could see them jump Northbridge into the top half of the ladder.

It is a massive game for our U/18’s this weekend, who despite sitting ninth are just three points away from finals. They face a big fixture this weekend as they take on Northbridge who are lurking behind them, just one point behind. This game could be season defining for the U/18’s.



South Coast Flame vs Hills United

Saturday 2nd July

Ian McLennan Park, Field 2

U/14: 11:50am

U/15: 1:25pm

U/16: 3pm

The U/14’s face a stern test this weekend against fifth placed Hills, though will be encouraged by their improvement in results over the past month.

The U/15’s will be looking to bounce back from their defeat last weekend in Nowra, though will see this game as winnable against eighth placed Hills – a side which narrowly beat the Flame 2-1 last time out.

The U/16’s have hit a purple patch of form, and are unbeaten in their last five games – scoring 21 goals and conceding just four in that time. They face a huge test against fourth placed Hills this weekend.
