29/30th July Results and Tables

NPL 1

No big shocks in the scorelines this week, although we had a 7 goal thriller with Sutherland emerging as victors over Sydney FC, and perhaps a somewhat surprising draw between Blacktown and APIA.

Blacktown holds onto 1st over APIA Leichhardt by 1 point, and the clash between the sides this weekend could potentially decide the premiership. If Blacktown win, they will hold an insurpassable 4 point lead with 1 round remaining. If APIA win, they will go 2 points ahead of Blacktown, and a draw sees Blacktown just hold on to 1st.

In terms of finals placings, Blacktown and APIA are guaranteed to finish in the top 2, whilst the remaining 3 spots are being fought between Rockdale, Manly, Olympic, Wolves and United. It’s a shame that 2 of those clubs will have to miss out on finals, but that’s the joy of finals.

Two massive clashes in deciding finals spots this week will be Manly hosting United, whilst Rockdale are home against the Wolves.

 

NPL 2

With 4 round remaining, Marconi Stallions have wrapped up the NPL 2 premiership.

Bankstown Berries this week have managed their way into 5th position after an unbeaten streak of 7 wins, although Wanderers and Central Coast will be playing a catch up game.

The finals placings are far from being decided, with every team except Bankstown City having a chance at the finals.

 

NPL 3

What a ridiculous season so far in the NPL 3. Just as Rydalmere looked to take the advantage into the finals rounds, they had a shocking loss to Western NSW Mariners. Then, as the advantage went back to Fraser Park, they suffered defeat against SD Raiders. So we are no closer to determining the premiers this season with 5 rounds left. Rydalmere hold a 5 point lead although Fraser Park have a game in hand.

The premiership is down to a 2 horse race though as Dulwich Hill’s 5-5 draw with Dunbar Rovers putting them 17 points behind the leaders with 15 points left on offer.

Whilst Rydalmere and Fraser Park have sealed their place in this years final, the last 4 spots are up for grabs with Dulwich Hill, St George, Gladesville Ryde, SD Raiders, Hawkesbury City, Sydney Uni, Stanmore Hawks and Dunbar Rovers all still in with a mathematical chance.

 

State League

A shock draw for Camden against Western Condors has sent the State League into a spiral as everything is back on the table.

With 2 rounds to go Bankstown United and Camden are tied at the top both on 36 points. Nepean is also in the hunt for the premiership although they are behind on 32 points.

The top 4 is also yet to be decided with Nepean, Hurstville, UNSW and Prospect all fighting it out for the final 2 spots.
