The Academy Boys teams travelled to Christie Park at North Ryde on Saturday to play Spirit FC. The day kicked off with the Grade 13 Boys securing a 3-0 win over Spirit and followed with wins for the Grade 14 (5-1), 15 (2-0) and 16 (2-0) Academy teams. Unfortunately the 18s were unable to secure a win but with a total of 12 points won by the Academy teams on the day the club-s hopes of securing the 2012 Club Championship for the Boys Super Youth Teams remains a realistic goal.

On Sunday the Girls and Womens Academy teams travelled to Sutherland to play Sutherland in Round 15 of the Women-s Premier League. A day of two draws, two wins and one loss for the Coast teams saw the teams come away with 8 points for the 2012 Women-s Premier League Club Championship.

The Grade 12 and Reserve Grade teams both had 1-1 draws. The Grade 16 Girls and the First Grade women both secured 2-1 wins against Sutherland. For the 16s Girls, this further cemented their place at the top of the table whilst for the First Grade Women-s team, the three points puts them in eighth position just behind Marconi Stallions.

In the Women-s competition, Marconi and the Central Coast Mariners Academy are due to play this Tuesday night 3rd July at Pluim Park in a make-up game that both will be eager to win as finals time draws near. Kick off is at 8pm at Pluim Park, Lisarow.
