A well earned rest this weekend for Boomerangs teams ahead of the final critical two rounds of season 2012/2013.
Although the club did not fare as well as predicted (on this site) 10 points were picked up and Sydney City did us a huge favour by only accruing three points from three draws and six losses against Inner West Magic.
With two rounds to go, leapfrogging Enfield now seems highly unlikely as they sit 11 points higher on the Club Championship table – and they play Sydney City once more before season end. The clear goal now is to stay clear of the relegation zone by accumulating more points across each of the two weekends than Sydney City.
The Boomerangs face Mascot Vipers (home) and Campbelltown Quake (away). Campbelltown are on 42 wins for the season compared with the Boomerangs 35. Vipers are on 57. Realistically the Boomerangs should be aiming at six or seven wins across the two rounds.
The Eagles (29 season wins) though, have a round against Enfield – and if they do as well as Boomerangs, will come away with ten points. Their last round is against Phoenix – fifth on the Club table with 39 wins. The Eagles would also be expecting to get at least 7 or 8 wins from the two rounds – but given their recent form, this could be a challenge.
The Club Championship race is still a great tussle between Dural and Magic with only four points separating these two clubs from 108 games played (although Dural do have a game in hand). It could possibly come down to the last match of the last round to decide the Club Champion for 2012/2013.
To individual age groups…
The 12 Girls and the 12 and 14 Boys have started planning for next year….
The 14 and 16 Girls are now out of contention for the finals — although mathematically the 16 girls……
The 16 Boys remain the best hope for finals, still sitting in second place.
Youth Men remain in fifth and MUST win their final two matches to make the finals.
Women, again mathematically can still…. but rely on much good fortune and other teams losing….
As with the Youth Men, the Men’s team must win their remaining two games if they are to make the finals.
Whilst some teams are no longer in the hunt for finals spots, they need to contribute to overall club results.
