Coastal League One Women – Round 2

AFTER their first ever games were played on synthetics, the inaugural Coastal League One Women season continues this weekend on traditional home grounds for Round 2.

The Urunga Raiders will look for two wins in a row to start the season when they play host to the Sawtell Scorpions on Saturday afternoon.

The Raiders made their first game in the new women’s competition a successful one with a 3-2 victory against the Coffs City United Lionesses.

The Scorpions will look for their first win of the season after sharing the points with Macleay Valley Rangers in a 0-0 draw.

The other Round 2 fixture sees the Coffs City United Lionesses hosting the Boambee Eagles at Maclean Street.

The Lionesses will be out for their first result of the season after an opening round defeat, as they take on a Boambee Eagles team playing their first game in the new competition after having the opening round bye.

Lionesses captain Jordan Maddalena said the Eagles would present a big challenge.

“Its another big test for the girls this weekend, as they are the winners of last season so it will definitely be a tough one,” she said.

The Macleay Valley Rangers have the bye in Round 2.
