THE inaugural Coastal League One Women season continues this weekend with Round 3 matches in Boambee and Toormina.
The Round 3 fixtures are the first to be played since the opening round, after last weekend’s scheduled Round 2 fixtures were postponed due to the unavailability of the grounds courtesy of the wet weather.
The Boambee Eagles finally take to the field for the first time this season when they play host to the Macleay Valley Rangers at Ayrshire Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Eagles had the opening round bye, while the Rangers opened the season with a 0-0 draw against the Sawtell Scorpions.
Boambee Eagles coach Neil Witherdin was looking forward to his sides first game in the new competition.
“We just want a good, strong competition so that players have something to strive for,” he said.
“And we don’t mind playing against some different teams.”
Sawtell Scorpions are at home for the first time this season when they take on the Coffs City United Lionesses at Toormina Oval on Saturday afternoon.
Both sides will look for their first victory of the season, with Scorpions having a draw and the Lionesses going down 3-2 to the Urunga Raiders in the opening round.
The Urunga Raiders have the bye in Round 3, and are the only team to have recorded a win this season.
