Finals Fever

The Girls and Womens cup finals take place at Lark Hill sporting complex tomorrow, and the club is delighted and incredibly proud to have four of our teams taking part in the junior and senior competitions.

In the junior cups, our league title winning U14's and U16's sides will be aiming for cup and league doubles, whilst our U18's will be trying to win in our first ever final in this age group.

Meanwhile, our Premier league squad will be hoping they can bring the State Cup home for the 9th time in 11 seasons, aiming to erase the memories of finishing runners up last season.

Our opponents in the State Cup will be our closest neighbours, Balcatta FC and they have already given us some very hard games this season, so Sunday should be no different.

The Prems go into the final in fine form though, with 5 wins from the last 5 games and just 2 losses all season.

They also boast the meanest defence in the league having conceded only 14 goals so far, with ex Matilda and current Perth Glory defender Kim Carroll and ex Perth Glory W league player Bronwyn Studman marshalling the back four superbly. If teams do find a way past the defence they have found young Matilda goalkeeper Morgan Aquino to be in great form.

Another reason for the mean defence has been the shield provided in front of them by the midfield pairing of ex Perth Glory W league players Carla Bennett and captain Shawn Billam, who also supply the bullets for our lethal frontline.

The team currently lead the league in goals scored with 61 in 17 games. Perth Glory's Sarah Carroll leads the way with 15 so far, but she has been well supported by Tianha Botha and ex Kiwi International Renee Leota.

In the 14's and 16's we will be playing MUM FC in both finals, and both of these games promise to be close affairs as well, with MUM FC finishing runners up in the U14 and U16 leagues.

In the U18 final its another local derby, as we take on Hamersley Rovers Juniors who have proven to be tough opponents in the league games this season.

Regardless of the results tomorrow, all players, coaches and managers should be proud of their efforts in getting to the finals, and we wish them all the very best of luck as they try to bring home an unprecedented number of trophies!
