Academy Preview: Women’s and Girls (May 14th)

After yet another incredibly strong weekend of results last Sunday, the Central Coast Mariners Women’s and Girl’s academy teams are back today at Pluim Park. 

With the Under 16’s having a bye, our four sides will face off against Camden Tigers in what promises to be an entertaining Sunday of football.  

First Grade vs Camden Tigers

The Central Coast Mariners women’s first grade side are back in action today, taking on Camden Tigers at 3pm at Pluim Park. 

Off the back of a pleasing three points last weekend against the Raiders, the Central Coast are looking to continue their fight for first place. 

An 86th minute goal from Chloe Smith was enough to keep the team just two points off league leaders UNSW, with a game still in hand. 

The team’s attention now turn to Camden, who have had a tough season to date. Coming into the game on a six-game losing streak, the side sit in 12th position with six points from nine matches. 

The Mariners will be looking to grab the three vital points, as they continue to prove why they are one of the top sides in the competition. Make sure to be at Pluim Park this afternoon to cheer on the side as they fight for victory.

Under 20’s vs Camden Tigers

Coming into the match on a four game unbeaten run, the Central Coast Mariners under 20’s side are looking to keep their positive form going against Camden this afternoon. 

Goals to Derelle Avery, Jordyn Drysdale and Chloe Cattley were enough to secure a 3-1 win and push clear of SD Raiders last weekend. They come up against another side hungry for a result, with Camden sitting four points behind the Mariners, having played an extra match. 

After a strong start to their season, Camden have hit a rut, going down in their last four matches. With a combined aggregate loss of 12-1, the team will be keen to climb back up the ladder with three points. 

The Mariners are confident that that will not be the case, as they look to build consistency and move further up the table and closer to the summit. 

The match gets underway at 1:05pm on Pluim Park field three, so make sure to get to the ground early to support the team. 

Youth Girls vs Camden Tigers

With the under 16’s having a bye this weekend, the youth girls will only have two matches today. Facing off against Camden Tigers, the teams head into the games full of confidence that more positive results will come their way. 

The day gets underway with the under 14’s side, who secured an important three points against SD Raiders last weekend. Leading 2-0 at the break, they walked away with a 4-2 win to move into eighth place. 

They come up against a Camden team who have struggled to date, having not collected a point so far this season. A win for the Mariners could move them to as high as sixth, as they look to maintain touching distance with the top of the table. Kick-off is at 10am. 

The under 15’s are looking to get back to winning ways after falling in a tight one last weekend. Down 2-0 at the break, the home side were able to hold on for a 3-2 win. 

Their opponents have had quite a difficult start to the season, unable to grab a point over their nine matches. The Mariners are keen to secure the victory, sitting in sixth with a game in hand. The game gets underway at 11:30am.
