Can Spring Gully cause an upset?
Last updated: Friday June 22, 2012 1:48PM
Spring Gully host top of the table Moama in a match that pits two top four teams against each other in the Women's Division of the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League (BASL).
Although Moama have lost a number of players through University and injury they have still proven to be the team to beat in 2012, as the push for back to back Championship victories. At the half way mark, Moama sit 5 points clear of the nearest rivals, and a win against Spring Gully on Sunday will shut the door on another contender.
Spring Gully have impressed all season with their young side, and if they can keep the team together they will be hard to beat in 3 years time, but for now they are slightly off the pace of the likes of Moama and Eaglehawk, and will find the challenge this week a little too difficult. Expect Moama to continue on their winning way on Sunday.
In other matches, Eaglehawk should be too strong for Castlemaine at home, especially after coming off the big win against Epsom last week, that saw three key players score hat tricks. The form of Amy Skvarc, Chloe Parker and Maika Ruyter-Hooley last week is an ominous sign for the rest of the competition as they build towards a rematch with Moama in 4 weeks time that could very well decide the Championship.
The inconsistent Colts United will play Epsom on Sunday, and after coming off the bye should be fresh and confident of getting the win against an Epsom side that had struggled with injuries all year, and whos confidence is at an all time low after a 13-1 loss last week. Colts United should get their fourth win for the year.
Whilst in the last match of the round, Strathdale should get the points against Golden City to stay in touch with the leaders. Strathdale have looked dangerous in attack all year, and if they can get on a bit of a roll they might play a part in deciding the Championship as the season draws to a close.
