Fascinating final round awaits

A fascinating final round awaits to end the Coastal Premier League season, as teams fight for all important finals’ spots.

The latest CPL season is set to end in dramatic fashion, with pivotal Round 22 matches and catch-up games deciding the finals fate of a number of clubs.

Bellingen FC have it all to play for this weekend, with games against Boambee FC and Taree Wildcats awaiting.

On the outside of the top 6 looking in, two wins this weekend could see the Bats clinch a finals spot in their debut season in the CPL.

The Sawtell Scorpions also face a make-or-break weekend as they face off against premiers Coffs City United Lions at Toormina Oval.

The Scorpions currently sit in fifth spot with one game remaining, with a win against the Lions sealing a finals spot, but a draw or loss leaving them in a precarious position.

The Northern Storm also face a must win game when they take on the second placed Coffs Coast Tigers this weekend.

With one game remaining, the Storm sit in 7th spot on the ladder equal on points with Port United, but with United having the all-important game in hand, and with the current state of play it means a win against the Tigers is non-negotiable.

Southern United are another team whose season is on the line in the final round.

United take on the Macleay Valley Rangers in the match of the round between two teams in the top four.

Southern United currently sit in fourth spot, and a win would clinch a finals berth in their debut CPL season, but a draw or loss could see them miss the finals entirely.

Currently on 35 points in third, the Rangers have already clinched a finals spot.

Sitting in sixth spot, Port United are in the box seat to clinch a finals berth, with two games against teams below them on the ladder in the Kempsey Saints and Boambee FC.
