Three Rounds To Go! (ACT)

Boomerangs F.S.

Logo - Boomerangs F.S. (PNG)With only three rounds of the 2012/2013 NSW Premier League regular season still to play, it is time to look at the current ‘State of Play’ with all nine Boomerangs teams.

Importantly, the Boomerangs currently sit in seventh position in the Club Championship – only five points ahead of last placed Sydney City, five points behind Enfield and a further seven points behind the fifth placed Phoenix.

Across three rounds it seems unlikely (although not impossible) the club will be able to make up 12 points to overtake Phoenix, but to make up the five points to climb to sixth place is certainly achievable.

Over the last three rounds Boomerangs teams are up against Enfield, Mascot and Campbelltown. Enfield sit on 32 wins for the season to date (in sixth place) – the same number of wins as the Boomerangs, with Quake (fourth place) on 37 and Vipers (in third place) on 54 .

Sydney City are up against Inner West, Enfield and Phoenix in the final three rounds and Enfield up against the Boomerangs, Sydney City and Mascot – probably the easiest run home of the three.

At the top of the table, the battle for club champion is between Dural and Inner West with Dural up against Mascot and Phoenix – and the Magic against Sydney City and the Quake before the final weekend play off — Dural Warriors Vs Inner West Magic – which is likely to be the Premier League Club Champion deciding round.

To the Boomerangs, and their finals chances…

12 Boys

Current Ladder position: 8th

Out of contention after a poor start to the season. Have definitely played much better in the second half of the season and will surprise the three teams across the final rounds that think they might be in for an easy win.

12 Girls

Current Ladder position: 7th

As with the 12 Boys, a slow start to the season but have definitely played much better over recent rounds and will be no easy beats in the final three rounds of the season.

14 Boys

Current Ladder position: 7th

Out of contention for a finals berth. Still a chance to grab a few valuable club points across the final three rounds.

14 Girls

Current Ladder position: 6th

A slim chance to make the final four, but relies on results from other games going their way.

16 Boys

Current Ladder position: 2nd

The Boomerangs best chance for a top of the table finish, currently sitting in second place behind next round’s opponent, Enfield (who they lost to by a single goal earlier this season). 16 Boys have performed consistently well since their last loss in Round 6 (1-0 to the Quake).

16 Girls

Current Ladder position: 6th

Once again a slim chance of making the finals which would require three wins from the last three games and a stumble by one of the teams currently in the top four.

Youth Men

Current Ladder position: 4th

Dural and Mascot sit comfortable atop this group, but any five of the remaining teams can finish in the top four. It is vital the Youth team takes full advantages of the final round games against Enfield, Mascot and Campbelltown to ensure a top four finish.

Open Women

Current Ladder position: 7th

The Open Women’s team sit in seventh place and probably lost the opportunity for a play-off place in the heavy defeat last round to Inner West. Many promising signs for next season though, and any wins they can take from the remaining three games will help in Club Championship standings.

Open Men

Current Ladder position: 4th

The Men’s team sit in fourth with a game in hand (against Dural). Much like the Youth Men though, any of seven teams can make the final four. It is therefore vital that they take points from each of the remaining three rounds of the season to ensure a top four finish.

And much like the Club Championship, the Men’s competition may well come down to the last game on the last weekend of this years competition in deciding who takes top spot into the finals series.
