Lionesses host Scorpions in Round 8

COFFS City United Lionesses host the Sawtell Scorpions while the Boambee Eagles hit the road during the latest round of the Coastal League One Women season.

The Lionesses and Scorpions are scheduled to meet on Saturday afternoon at Forsyth Park.

The second-placed Lionesses will try to keep in touch with the ladder leading Urunga Raiders, while the Scorpions look to win their first game of the season.

The Lionesses had last week off after their scheduled match against the Boambee Eagles was postponed, with both Coffs and Sawtell coming off losses to the Raiders.

The Lionesses were 3-1 winners when the two teams last met this season.

The Boambee Eagles travel to Kempsey to take on the Macleay Valley Rangers in a match which could see the winner go to second spot on the table.

Just one point separates the two teams, with the Rangers sitting in third on five points and the Eagles on four points but with two games in hand.

The Eagles are playing their first game in three weeks after having a bye and their last game postponed, while the Rangers are coming off the bye.

Both sides will be out to win their second match in a row.

The two teams shared the points in a 1-1 draw in their previous meeting.

The Urunga Raiders have the bye in Round 8.
