Convincing wins by both the Grade 14 Boys and Reserve Grade Womens Central Coast Mariners Academy Teams on the weekend have both helped to add to the total goals scored by the local teams for Season 2012.

Saturday saw the boys Academy teams head to the ground of their southern neighbours - the Northern Tigers - to play in Round 7 of the Boys Super Youth League. The day started with a 3-1 win by the Academy-s 13 Boys followed by a convincing 5-0 win by the Grade 14 Boys. 3 goals to Theo Forsberg sealed the deal for the Academy 14 Boys.

The Grade 15 Boys then continued the winning form with a 2-1 win over the Tigers which was followed by a scoreless draw in the 16 Boys. The last game of the day, the Grade 18 Boys saw the Tigers win 2-0 over the Academy. With 3 wins, a draw and a loss from the day, the Central Coast teams remain top of the Boys Super Youth League Club Championship.

On Sunday, the Academy and Girls and Womens teams welcomed newly promoted Northbridge FC to Pluim Park for Round 7 of the Football NSW Womens Premier League.

Hannah Batten of the Academy-s Grade 12 Girls started the scoring for the local team with the 12 teams securing a 1 all draw with Northbridge. The Girls 14s narrowly lost to Northbridge with the 16 girls holding on in their game with a 3-2 win.

The Womens Academy Reserve Grade team had their biggest win of the Season with an 8-0 victory. The Academy opened up the scoring with a goal by Gabrielle Raica within the first minute of the game. Sian Bozanic scored a hat trick for the local side and further cemented their third position on the ladder after 7 rounds.

The First Grade Women played a scoreless draw. The Women will be home again next Sunday, Mother-s Day and will be hoping for a victory over Sydney based Marconi who are sitting equal on the ladder with the Coast.

Sunday also saw the Boys Skills Acquisition League teams at home playing Gladesville Hornsby. Both the Grade 11 and Grade 12 Boys Academy teams won their games and will be home again next week against Blacktown.
