Camden Tigers vs South Coast Flame
Saturday 9th July
Ron Dine Stadium
First Grade: 7pm
In one of two Saturday 7pm games, Camden Tigers will take on South Coast Flame at Ron Dine Stadium to continue the League Three Men’s action for the week.
Camden Tigers have been in fantastic form in recent weeks, picking up three wins in their last five matches with their only loss coming against second-placed Newcastle Jets.
However, the loss against the Jets still saw them find the back of the net on three occasions – the third time they’ve scored three goals within their last five games.
They’ve scored 42.3% of their total goals this campaign in their last five matches (which makes up a third of their season), showing the upturn in goalscoring form over the last quintet of matches.
Camden currently sits seventh on the League Three Men’s table, four points ahead of opponents South Coast Flame, although the away side for this match has three games in hand.
Meanwhile, South Coast Flame will be looking for consistency within their matches after a mid-week defeat to USNW FC – this will be their second match in four days.
Despite having played three games less than second placed Camden, our U/20’s sit just three points away and are in prime position to cement themselves in a finals position. A big contest here.
Sutherland Shire FA vs South Coast Flame FC
Sunday 10th July
First Grade: 7pm
Another battle between two sides close together as Sutherland Shire FA take on South Coast Flame FC at Harrie Denning Centre.
When these two sides met back in Round 6, South Coast Flame FC ran out 2-1 winners against Sutherland Shire FA down in Kembla Grange. Both teams will be fresh after their fixtures were washed out against SD Raiders FC and Hills United FC respectively.
These two sides sit right next to each other in the League One Womens ladder which adds some further spice to the contest on Sunday afternoon. Sutherland Shire FA will want to avenge their loss back in Round 6, 2-1 to the Flame.
Both Sutherland Shire FA and South Coast Flame FC have talented young strikers in their line-up who have lit up the competition this season. 15-year-old Violet Keelan has led the line well for Sutherland Shire FA while Jessica Cruickshank has been a solid performer for the visitors.
The U/20’s will look to reverse their defeat earlier in the season against Sutherland. A win on Sunday will potentially see the Flame jump the Shire on the ladder.
Parramatta Eagles vs South Coast Flame
Sutherland Shire FA vs South Coast Flame
Saturday 9th July
The Flame’s youth girls fixtures originally scheduled for Sunday morning have been moved to Saturday afternoon in order to ensure these games are played on a synthetic field.
The U/14’s will look to improve on their result earlier in the season against a strong Sutherland side, looking to give a strong side a shake up.
The U/15’s considered themselves unlucky to not get a result against high-flying Sutherland last time out, going a goal down just five minutes before lightning shortened their game time. They will look to put their last few results behind them and build towards a good finish to the season.
The U/16’s are in rare goal scoring form recently, and will look to make it two wins from two against Sutherland this year, after a complete performance in a 2-0 win earlier in the year.
