Woongarrah FC vs Southern and Ettalong United FC – Hamlyn Terrace
In arguably the biggest match of the Battlewin Premier League’s round 21 fixture list, second-placed Woongarrah host third-placed Southern and Ettalong United at Hamlyn Terrace. Separated by just one competition point, both remain well in the hunt to finish the season as league champions. A victory for Woongarrah on Sunday afternoon would see them take the battle for the league championship into the final round of the season, setting up what would undoubtedly be the most anticipated match of the season with Killarney next Sunday afternoon. The ‘Cats are in the midst of a nine-match unbeaten run heading into the finals series as they continue their dream first season in the Men’s Premier League.
Southern and Ettalong United surrendered their stranglehold on second position on the Battlewin Premier League table to this weekend’s opponents after their 1-1 draw with East Gosford last weekend. Despite the dropped points the Lions remain in the mix for the BPL’s league championship but must win Sunday’s clash with Woongarrah to ensure they’ll have the opportunity to compete for the title on the last day of the season next weekend. Recent history favours the Lions, with the side notching up a massive 6-2 victory over the ‘Cats at James Browne Oval earlier in the season, however, a boisterous home crowd combined with the sheer magnitude of the fixture suggests this weekend’s clash will be a much tighter affair.
